Recipe: Strawberry Banana Peanut Butter Breakfast Shake

Gear Up for a Great Day with This Protein-Packed Strawberry Banana Breakfast Shake

 

Whether your morning routine includes a workout and a leisurely coffee or you find yourself running out the door ahead of a long commute, there is absolutely no doubt that your first meal sets the stage for how you’ll feel all day long. If you’re often hungry a couple hours after breakfast or need to take a nap after lunch, this breakfast shake could be your saving grace!

Breakfast is all about striking the right balance of healthy foods that show up on your plate (or in your glass) to boost energy that keeps you running throughout the morning. Enter our Strawberry Banana Peanut Butter Breakfast Shake. It’s packed with 18 grams of collagen protein, healthy fat, plenty of fiber and over a serving of fresh fruit. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?

It’s hard to say what we like more about this shake – the flavor of our new Banana, Cinnamon & Vanilla Collagen Whey, or the benefits packed within it. Regardless, we know you’re going to enjoy it. 

It’s the combination of collagen and whey that make this shake unique. This collagen-whey nutrient duo helps amino acids get absorbed faster into your body, allowing them to get to where they need to go, helping you recover faster and develop muscle at the same time.

Did you know? 
Protein is the building block of muscle, but amino acids are the building blocks of protein. You can’t have one without the other. That’s why the quality of protein you put into your body and the right balance of amino acids makes all the difference. Simply put: not all protein is the same. Vital Proteins collagen protein is made up of a balanced profile of amino acids that helps to ensure development of lean muscle mass! (1)
