Banana Cream Oreo Protein Shake
Instead of buying over-priced, sugar-laden smoothies and milkshakes this summer, try a homemade Banana Cream Oreo Protein Shake. It’s not only easier on the pocketbook and delicious, but it’s healthier too!
With all the packing we’ve been doing for our move, I’ve been super busy and not a lot of time to stop and eat right.
The other day I ran into GNC to pick up some protein powder so I could make some shakes to enjoy for breakfast or lunch while I’m busy.
The nice girl in the store and I started chatting about how you could make the protein shakes low cal and low fat but taste like a delicious treat. All while packing a high protein punch to help keep me going and satisfied.
She suggested I use a low cal protein powder, that has only 100 calories per scoop, so I picked up this GNC Total Lean™ Lean Shake™ 25 that offers high-quality protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and fat. It comes in these 2-ounce packets for about $2 each. I can get 2 shakes out of a packet and was able to try them out without paying $32 for a larger container.
The protein powder comes in several flavors, but she said if I got the french vanilla I could add a few tablespoons of sugar-free pudding mix to my shake for other flavors. Suddenly the combination possibilities started popping in of my head faster than I could run over to the grocery store and buy the ingredients!
So, for my first shake, I used sugar-free Banana Cream Pudding Mix, with about 1/3 of a banana, some fat-free Greek yogurt and a little Stevia to sweeten, tossed in about a cup of ice and a little water and turned on my Vitamix for about 1 minute. Poured it in a glass and crushed up about 1/2 package of 100 calorie Oreos on top to mix in.
What a TREAT!!! I can’t wait to try some other varieties with the pudding mix.
I ran the ingredients thru a calorie calculator and came to just 350 calories, 2.5 grams fat and a whopping 39 grams of proein!!
