“Whey Protein Recipe”: An even better tasting power sandwich

A few weeks ago, I posted a video for my readers showing the preparation of a delicious whey protein recipe. If you’re a lover of peanut butter, you’ll really enjoy this. Yet as good as that whey protein recipe is, I’ve discovered an even better method to make it with an added ingredient that provides more carbohydrate calories and more palatability.

The video showing the basic whey protein recipe can be found right here

The ingredient I’ve added since then is a chilled, sliced banana.

Many people have enjoyed the tantalizing combination of bananas and peanut butter as an unusual pairing inside a sandwich for a long time. Just add the chocolate whey protein and you’ve got a mixture that can’t be beat for both quick caloric energy and a flavor that’s out of this world. Here are the ingredients for this “power sandwich.”

  • Two Slices of Russian Rye Bread (or your favorite bread)
  • 2 Tablespoons of Old Fashioned Peanut Butter (sugarless)
  • 1  scoop of chocolate Whey Protein Powder (artificially flavored/no sugar)
  • 1 medium sized banana (sliced and chilled)



Protein Shakes

'Protein shakes' are not the only tasty way to mix a protein powder. You can make a "power sandwich" with a delicious 'whey protein recipe'


Preparation You need to add some consistency to the whey protein powder before adding it to the peanut butter on the bread.  It also tastes best when all the ingredients are chilled. Therefore, keep the peanut butter in the refrigerator and prepare the whey protein “sludge” well in advance of eating the sandwich.

To do this, just put the scoop of chocolate whey protein powder in the bottom of a big glass and add just a smidgeon (small amount) of water. In my video, I actually added too much water; you only want enough that the protein powder turns into a slightly viscous “mud” – not a liquid dripping out of your ‘power sandwich.’ If you’ve done it right, it should have the same consistency as the peanut butter. Put that glass in the refrigerator and let the protein get cold.

When you’re ready to eat your sandwich, take the ingredients out of the refrigerator. Spread two tablespoons of peanut butter on one slice of bread. Spread the goopy chocolate protein powder on the other slice of bread. Slice the chilled banana into pieces and put them on the bottom slice of bread and slap that other piece of bread on top.

Now… savor and enjoy every smacking bite of this ‘whey protein recipe’ “power sandwich” because you probably should avoid eating two of them unless you’re an eighteen year old male with a warp-speed metabolism . This snack is calorie-dense. However, it can keep you satiated for a long time and is great to eat before an arduous workout.

Of course, the banana adds about 25 to 30 grams of carbohydrates to the sandwich as well as about 100 additional calories. But it also adds some ascorbic acid which breaks up the gooeyness of the peanut butter and protein. This makes the ‘power sandwich’ more flavorful and capable of being eaten without a swig of fluid after every bite. 

Here’s an approximate macro nutrient breakdown of this ‘whey protein recipe’ power sandwich:

Protein: 35 grams

Carbs:    60 grams

Fat:        20 grams

… and percentages of calories from each:

About 560 calories

25% Protein

43% Carbohydrates

32% Fat

Enjoy… and let me know what you think.

Hi Puma,

Thanks for dropping by. Yeah... I agree with not cutting dietary fat too much so as not to hamper testosterone production...etc. But it's easy to take that too far. Dietary fat is calorie-dense, so there has to be a balance.

But I have to confess, the "butter-burger" sounds tasty. Might have to try it followed by at least three hours of heavy activity.

These look great! I recently read a recipe in Bon Appetit that added a huge pat of butter to the inside of a burger! I'm glad to see something that doesn't rely on so much fat for flavor, haha.
