This extra-thick smoothie has what it takes to help you recover after a hard workout. Crunchy options for toppings include walnuts, coconut chips, cacao nibs, and/or chopped banana chips. To freeze bananas for all your smoothie needs, peel ripe fruit, chop into 2-inch chunks, and spread out on a baking sheet. Place sheet in the freezer until bananas are frozen, then store in a zip-close bag. Here is another tip: To keep your thick smoothie from turning into smoothie soup, serve in a frosty bowl.


  • ¼ cup milk (2% fat)
  • ½ cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 scoop(s) vanilla whey protein powder
  • 2 tsp natural almond butter
  • 2 tsp sugar-free maple syrup
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large (8" to 8-7/8" long) banana, frozen
