I don’t know about you, but when it starts warming up I go bananas for fruity drinks. For breakfast, after work, pre or post workout, protein shakes are always a good idea. This banana mango protein shake is just what I need after a long day in the hot sun.
I don’t know when my fascination for protein drinks became a thing, but I’m glad they did. I’m a creature of habit so I will drink the same flavor protein shake for months at a time. I always keep both chocolate and vanilla whey isolate in my cupboard so I can make whatever flavor protein shake I’m in the mood for.
This banana mango protein shake was inspired by my mother. My mom recently gave me a whole bunch of ripe mangos. I didn’t want them to go to waste so I simply blended them up and made them into mango cubes. This was a trick I learned back in the day when I would make my own baby food. I keep them in the freezer so I can add a mango boost to my protein shake when needed.
See video below for how to make the mango cubes.
