Okay, I know I'm crazy but, guess what? I don't like bananas! I would love some recipes for protein shake recipes that don't have banana in it. And don't tell me that I won't taste it because I am super sensitive to taste and I WILL taste the banana! Thanks for your help!

I like to keep frozen fruit around for smoothies. Just add them to the blender still frozen and you won't need ice. You can also add unsweetened apple sauce to thicken it up a bit.

I am allergic to bananas, I can actually tell if a place didn't clean their blender if i order a blended ice drink from a coffee stand.

I make my smoothies using frozen berries as lindsiswatchi said.

Also, I will put in a few blops of non-fat plain greek yogurt in the blender as well, great for some extra protein. You can freeze the yogurt into some silicone ice cube trays and put a few of those in your smoothie too.

Cottage cheese has 16g protein per 1/2 cup serving. Throw that in with your powder, fruit, a dab of honey if you need it. Add peanut butter if you have a chocolate powder, or almond butter.

Do you like pina coladas? Try a vanilla protein powder, frozen pineapple chunks, a little shredded coconut, unsweetened coconut milk and a few drops of the Dasani drops in pineapple coconut flavor. You're welcome.

Edited: the other poster mentioned putting a little greek yogurt in there. I do this sometimes as well.

1c juice or skim milk
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/2 c plain greek yogurt
frozen fruit of your choice - we like mango, pineapple and peaches

Super yummy and it doesn't separate bc you don't use ice!

If you have a sweet tooth, then try the shake (vanilla) with almond milk, sugar free butterscotch pudding mix (1 T), 2 t PB2, and ice. Blend and enjoy!! Tastes just like a Butterfinger!

I agree..... Frozen berries all the way. Plus, less sugar and carbs and more fiber that way! I ALWAYS love raspberries in mine.... yum!

8 oz almond milk + 140 g frozen blueberries + 1 tsp peanut butter no salt + scoop of protein powder = heaven.

I put half a scoop of chocolate protein powder in my morning coffee. It's like a $5 starbucks mocha except that it has fewer calories, 15g of protein, and it's free.

TRAVESTY!!

In all seriousness - most of the time mine does not have banana - just made one 5 minutes ago - frozen blueberries, cup of spinach leaves, quarter cup coconut milk and protein powder (banana flavour ;-) ) - with water ..... total scrumminess!!

Try vanilla protein shakes with any frozen fruit of choice: strawberries, blueberries, cherries, mangoes, peaches, grapes, melons, pineapples, etc. The consistency of the frozen fruit provides the thickness for the shake without the bananas.

'm allergic to bananas as well! I've been LOVE LOVE LOVING Strawberry smoothies lately... I add some fat free cool whip and agave necter since i like it sweet... works wonders

My favorite is 1 scoop triple chocolate protein powder (I use Pure Protein), 1 cup unsweetened almond milk and 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries or strawberries (whichever one I have on hand).
I also like using the vanilla powder with frozen pineapples & mangoes and the 1 cup unsweetened almond milk.

I don't like bananas either, and my protein smoothies are amazing....

I load the following into my medium sized ninja bowl and process til smooth:
70g spinach
31g choc whey isolate protein
5g cocoa powder (I like it extra chocolatey)
15g natural PB
140g frozen strawberries
70g frozen blueberries
8oz unsweetened almond milk
2-3oz water, to blend

It's about 350 or so calories, very filling, and delicious. And no - you cannot taste the spinach. Just the sweetness of the fruit, the PB and lots of chocolate. Sometimes I sub peanut flour for the natural PB and it works just fine for about 40 less calories.

Enjoy!

Oh wow! I thought that MFP would tell me if I had comments but apparently not...

Haha thank you all for your recipe suggestions! They sound delicious and the pina colada one definitely sounds yummy! Thanks everybody!

I am so happy to see this! I hate bananas in all form except encased in carb and sugar (banana bread I love for some unknown reason) and it seems like every shake recipe has nasty banana in it!
February 12, 2013 8:25 PM
Avocados! they are a great way to get the smooth consistency and they are so good for you. A quarter of one will do!
Mangos are another good way to get the smoothiness that we all love :)
Canned Pumpkin is also another fave of mine
pick one with some choc or vanilla protein powder and unsweetened vanilla almond milk and you're set!

Hey me too. Only if they didn't clean their blender I have an asthma attack lol.

My banana less recipe...

2 scoops strawberry protein powder
3/4 cup Trop 50 OJ
1/2 Chobani Plain Greek Yogurt
2 Cups Frozen Strawberries

It's a big smoothie so just half everything if you want a smaller one. I make this almost every night and love it.
