5 ingredient protein recipe
Bari Life’s Creamy Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Protein Shake

Mixing our new whey protein with water is convenient and tastes great, but this 5 ingredient recipe is extremely easy and ideal for bariatric patients to use as a meal replacement for breakfast and/or lunch. It also makes for a supreme post workout drink!

There are endless variations for this recipe, but we find this one extra tasty and super healthy! The numbered ingredients make the lowest calorie version of this shake. Feel free to modify the ingredients to your taste preference, but keep in mind that the nutritional information will also change. If you don’t like the main ingredients we’ve used be sure to check out the bullet points because they are also healthy recommendations!
