Recipe: ModernPROTEIN Banana Smoothie

June 04, 2015

Protein shakes make life easier… period.

There’s not much for arguments against that.  Sure,  solid food should make up the majority of your diet, but due to fast-moving lifestyles and the high costs of protein enriched food, it’s not always easy. You know what’s the best thing about protein shakes? No cooking! You’ll never burn a protein shake, unless you flambé it, which I wouldn’t recommend. Try this easy shake from our R&D team at USPlabs, and be sure to check out our tips to enhance this ModernPROTEIN recipe.

  • 1/2 Cup Cold Water
  • 1/2 Cup Ice Cubes (4-5 Cubes)
  • 1 Small Banana
