Hungry Recipe - Choconana Protein Shake


The other day in the mail I was lucky enough to receive a bundle of new products kindly sent to me from IsoWhey.

French Vanilla IsoWhey Complete - IsoWhey High Protein Snack Bar - Double Chocolate IsoWhey
For those who don't already know I am a big advocate of protein supplements. I find them to be such an easy way to get extra protein in my diet and to also get my sweet fix at the same time.

There are a few things I look for in a protein supplement... calories, protein stats and most importantly TASTE!

So far I have tried the Double Chocolate IsoWhey powder and it was pretty darn good.

Calories: 118 per 35g serving size
Protein Stats: 15.8g per 35g serving size
Taste: Surprisingly delicious - great chocolate flavour and no funky aftertaste

Another awesome bonus I noticed after reading through the ingredients is that it includes glutamine, I generally add this (in powder form) to my post workout shakes to help with muscle recovery. No need to anymore because this stuff already does it for me :)

I thought I might share the recipe to my favourite protein shake. I will generally whip this up as a post workout drink but I also use it for breakfast, a snack during the day or even as dessert.

Choconana Protein Shake - Serves 1


Ingredients
1 serve of chocolate protein powder
1 small banana - I used a ladyfinger
100g of light cottage cheese - this makes your shake super creamy and extra protein too!
1/4 cup of water
Stevia or other sugar supplement - if desired
1-2 cups of ice - alter depending on your preferred consistency


Get Blending!
Put all ingredients except for the ice into the blender. Blend these ingredients until completely combined. Start adding the ice gradually until you get the consistency and thickness you like :)


It is that simple. I like to serve mine with some muesli sprinkled on top. Adds a bit of crunch :)

  1. I wish I had a blender so I could make this right now!!!! I'll have to wait until I go home in November to give it a try. Chocolate and banana is such a delicious combination.

  3. This looks so good! I love chocolate and banana together - one of my favourite combinations! I've never tried using a protein supplement, I sometimes worry that I'm not getting enough but its a bit overwhelming with the amount of different types on offer!

    1. Protein is definately important if you are exercising! Best way to pick a powder is just trial and error.
