Due to my life-long love of Reece's and all things peanut-butter, this is one of my favourite kitchen experiments to date. The basic idea of yogurt+protein powder+banana is my staple post-workout snack as it only takes 5 minutes to make, requires very few ingredients that can easily be interchanged with what you have on hand, and contains 27 grams of protein (yay!).
