Banannas in protein shake?
Do any of you guys blend a bananna in your protein shake? I heard the potassium in a bananna is good for muscle recovery after lifting. Also, how much protein is in one bananna? Would mixing one bananna in my shake daily be beneficial?

i think its a good thing to get the simple carbs right after a workout, so a banana in that shake is good (IMO), but i dont use them in my shakes other times. I use strawberries NON-FAT yogurt (the kind of yogurt i use has only 6 grams of sugar) later in the day and such, things with little less sugar...

Bananas don't have enough protein to be considered for a source of protein in your diet. But as murph said a banana would be great for an after workout shake, or just a healthy snack between meals.

Very good post workout source of carboydrates due to its potassium content and high glycemic value. Mix it in with protein post workout like everybody else said and you are good to go.

pws should not have any fructose in it...substitute with some dex instead.

The potassium in a banana is good to reduce the lactic acid buildup and supposed to help with soreness

Mix everything you can get ahold of in your shake if you are trying to bulk.
Mix milk, ice cream, eggs, fruit, grain, wheat germ, etc.
It all makes it taste better and its easy to drink when you arent hungry. All that stuff will add about 300 calories to your shake.

Banana's, Papyas, Pineapple - all contain FOS which is essential to creating a postive environment for the formation of digestive enzymes. Which helps your body utilize food sources - especially proteins.
