Protein shakes are an ideal recovery meal after a workout, a perfect way to start your day for breakfast, or a great snack when sweet cravings pop up. Our Clean Coconut Protein Shake starts with a clean vanilla protein powder and coconut milk. Banana adds sweetness and potassium, while spinach packs a nutritious punch of vitamins and fiber.

Simply pop all the ingredients in a blender, and a few pulses later you have a smooth, creamy meal that’s clean, high in protein, and rich in nutrients. Feel free to experiment with different fruits and customize it as you like!

    would frozen spinach work as well?

      Charlene, If that’s what you have on hand, then yes. 🙂

        If I used the frozen spinach, would my banana have to be frozen as well?

    Please clarify what you mean by coconut milk – the coconut milk beverage like Silk makes or the real thing?

      We prefer the real thing in a can. You can use the carton if you like, it’s just not as healthy (see ingredients).
