Written by on January 14, 2013 in From the USANA Test Kitchen, products, USANA with 14 Comments

Happy New Year! I am happy to be back on the blog with our first From the USANA Test Kitchen post of the year.

Many of us start the year with a goal to live a healthier lifestyle, and one component of that is eating better. Whether your are taking part in our Destination Transformation RESET Challenge, or just organizing your own program, I am sure many of you are including USANA’s Nutrimeal shakes as part of your healthy eating plan.

Today I am sharing a great recipe that will add a little spice to your day: Cool Banana Chai.

This shake provides an energy boost to an early morning start or dragging afternoon. With the flavors of banana and cinnamon, how can you go wrong?

  1. What’s Up from USANA | Studio 13 | January 14, 2013
  1. Love this recipe. I add ice to the water to make a frosty delight!

  2. Hey! Great Idea. I Love Chai Tea. I actually made this shake this morning using 2 scoops of Chocolate Whey (sans the REV 3 packet since I am out, but I did add a full scoop of Fibergy and a packet of Probiotics). It tastes nice and smooth. I think I’ll try the same recipe tomorrow with Strawberry Nutrimeal. 😀

  3. Yummy Banana Chocolate Whey Chai shake this morning for my breakfast! 😀

  5. Cool Banana Chai Shake inspired by Paul Rohatensky…YUM! Thanks Paul, and the USANA Test Kitchen, for a great suggestion! After our first week on Destination Transformation we feel fantastic and hope everyone else is too!

    One of my favorite shakes, although I don't always add the banana. Great idea 🙂

  7. Sounds delicious! I'm going to give it a try tomorrow morning 🙂 Can't go wrong with adding a Rev3 Surge Pack to anything!

  8. Roy Blocher says:

    I’ve seen several really good recipies here. Do we have a central source where I could download a PDF of a bunch of Nutrimeal recipies?

  9. LOVE LOVE LOVE the PDF with the shake ideas!!! Thank you!!

  10. Try this delicious recipe:
    Nutrimeal Choc Whey, water, 6 frozen strawberries.
    Blend and enjoy. Costco also sells frozen pineapple
    with little sugar for the entire package. If you like
    strawberries or pineapple, this is for you. Enjoy.
