Hi everyone! Welcome to the inaugural post of Bender’s Blenders. I’m still experimenting with what I want to do with this funky new idea – by the way, the credit for the title goes entirely to my ultra-creative father. Essentially, I want this new page and subsequent posts to involve new smoothie and shake creations that I either create myself or concoct via an interesting recipe. I’m toying with the idea of adding a video component once in a while as well.
Please, please give me any feedback, comments, etc. on what YOU would like to see featured on this exciting new page! As my dad so eloquently put it (he’s a joker, if you can’t tell), I want to make sure you get a “fair shake” (pun shamelessly intended) on what goes into this site!
So without further ado…
Bender’s Blenders: The Choconana Whey
This protein shake combines the smooth, velvety flavor of chocolate with a sweet note of banana and a energy-packed slam of whey protein powder. Perfect for recovering after an intense workout!
Ingredients (serves 1):
- 1 cup unsweetened chocolate almond milk (I like Almond Breeze)
- 2 scoops (approximately 1 oz.) vanilla protein powder (I used Biochem)
- 1 medium banana
- 5 ice cubes
- Optional: Reddi-Whip topping
Combine ingredients and blend until smooth. Add whipped topping if desired, and enjoy!
