Now that I have a blender, I’ve been experimenting with a few variations of a low-carb protein shake at home. My best iteration so far is a chocolate and banana flavoured protein shake. Here’s how to make it:

  • 125 ml of normal or unsweetened soy milk
  • 6 ice cubes
  • 2 tablespoons of whey protein isolate
  • 2 tablespoons of ground flax seed
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
  • 1 cap-full of banana extract
  • 3/4 of a teaspoon of stevia sweetener
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Xanthan gum

Put all of that in a blender and chop/mix it all up. It’s actually pretty tasty.
