Blueberry Banana Protein Shake

Okay law kids...we are ALL busy, and yes, it is true, sometimes we don't have time to make a delicious lunch or breakfast...well look no further, I have a healthy, FAST solution for you! As some of you know, I have been on a running/health kick for a short time and protein shakes have really become a staple in my diet. Here is a simple one that has a bunch of substitutions that make many different options!

One Scoop or 4 tablespoons of EAS Whey Protein Vanilla (Why do I use this one? Well: 23g of Protein, 130 Cals, 3g of Carbs, 1g of Sugar and it tastes amazing!) You can substitute EAS Whey Protein Chocolate (also pictured) to get a different flavor...both are delicious and the nutrition facts are the same (or basically the same)! (p.s. they all come with a scoop, you may just have to search for it)...This protein is available at Harris Teeter in the Nutrition section.
1 Banana + 1 Handful of Blueberries (fresh or frozen)***
1/2 Cup of Ice (Optional--if you are going to use ice, I recommend putting that in the blender first and crushing the ice so that your shake doesn't end up being too icy and is more smooth--otherwise it will take awhile to blend to get it smooth and it may still have ice chunks in it).
1/2 Cup of Water (obviously the picture isn't necessary but I thought it was cute)

And VOILA! A yummy meal to take on the go! Power through law students!

***Feel free to substitute the blueberries with: strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, or a mixture!! I have tried it multiple ways and it is always delicious and filling!

  1. Also, feel free to substitute the banana with a peeled and chopped granny smith apple for a different taste! I'm always mixing it up so I don't get bored!
