Adding Protein To An Ordinary Diet With Pure Goodness Protein Powder

I'm not "big" on various health food products so using protein powders is a bit new to me. I know my son makes himself a protein shake or smoothie every day as does my daughter. But to me it is new stuff. So I am venturing into this world a bit like taking a wee step into the vast ocean one toe at a time.

First of all I was given the opportunity to try this new-to-me product Pure Goodness Premium Superfood Protein Powder and I selected the chocolate version. Well, I am a bit of a "gotta have some chocolate" type of person. And then I had to figure out just how I wanted to use it. That is where the wonderful internet comes into play. I saw recipes for shakes, smoothies, bars, breads, etc. So here is my take on the subject....

I love my morning coffee and decided to try to add some chocolate protein to one cup. I added about half a scoop. Hmmm... that was real tasty and a bit like a mocha coffee. Only drawback - there was a bit of residue (or something like dregs) left in the cup. I'm assuming that is the part of the good stuff of the product so it is wasted being rinsed out of the cup. But the coffee did taste good and I'm sure I got a boost in my protein consumption.

Next I wanted to try it in banana bread. Here is the recipe I used (or made up). Warning: This is so good! Sweet, but not real sweet. Light chocolate flavor. Moist.
