Do you ever say to yourself, “I love banana bread so much, I could just drink it?” <- said like Bobby’s mom from Bobby’s World.

I mean, if life were made out of banana bread, I think I’d have to go on a powerful search for Things to be Upset About.

Because let’s face it: there will always be something I have to be upset about in order to maintain my off-kilter cosmic off-balance balance.

But if life were made out of banana bread, it would be extremely, exceedingly, impossibly difficult to be upset.

Back to my story.

This healthy meal replacement protein smoothie comes together in seconds and contains everything you need for a post-workout recovery, or a meal replacement.

If you prepare it as written, it yields you a whopping 39 grams of protein. Choose your favorite protein powder for the biggest protein boost. If you don’t like protein powder, you can skip it and add more chia seeds or more almond (or peanut) butter.

This is not a low-sugar or low-calorie smoothie, but for those who like to begin the day with a filling smoothie, this recipe’s perfect for you. And for those of you who are looking for drinkable banana bread?

Even more perfection.

You know what would make this smoothie even better? A slice of banana bread. Inside of it. Just food for thought.

Is this a good alternative for dessert for someone who is diabetic?

Hi Marisa,

I'm not a doctor, but based on my limited knowledge of Diabetes, I don't believe it would be a good fit. Fructose tends to spike blood sugar rather quickly and even though oats are a complex carb (slower burning), they raise blood sugar as well. I hope that helps! xoxo

Nice, can I premade this and leave it overnight for next day's consumption?

I would think you could make it the night before, but I think it'll taste best fresh :)
