Low Carb Chocolate Banana Smoothie

Yes, even if your dietitian told you to be careful about eating too many sugary fruits like bananas…this is still okay, because it doesn’t actually use bananas.

Tricky eh??

Bananas do provide carbohydrates (sugar) and this can provide spikes in blood sugar or even slow down your weight loss at times. Since I used a banana in my protein pancakes the other day, I knew I wanted to cut back on fruit.

So I created a chocolate shake with banana flavoring to get the feel of a delicious smoothie. It tooootally worked! I mean, this was delicious and I’m still full from this shake (which was my lunch at noon).

Super simple and so good. This is one of those protein shakes you want to commit to memory and keep the ingredients on hand.

Protein Powder I used today: Pure Protein, Natural Whey Protein, Triple Chocolate Shake, 14 Ounce Tub (packaging my vary)
