It all depends on whether or not your whey protein has added sugar. You can find plain protein powders. My favorite mix is as follows:
1 - 1 1/2 scoop whey protein
1 cup frozen berries (blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries - Cascadian Farms makes is a good one)
1/2 banana (more if you like it sweeter)
8 - 10 oz. whole milk
1 Tbsp almond butter
1 cup frozen broccoli florettes (you won't even notice it and you get an extra serving of veggies in!)
Add a couple of ice cubes if you like and blend it all together. I use the "ice crush" setting on my blender b/c it seems to work best for blending all the way without incorporating too much air into the shake.
Love your recipe, Elana! Also a good suggestion, once your raw bananas get too brown for your liking, peel them, break 'em in half, and stick them in the freezer. It'll make your smoothies surprisingly thick and creamy!
