Health: Mix a Banana with Vanilla Protein shake

I recently started the P90X workout series, and as expected, have been making my muscles very sore.  I purchased a 5 lb bag of EAS Whey Protein in vanilla flavor.  The taste is OK by itself, but suffers from the same chalky taste that is also present in every other whey protein mix I’ve ever tried (although not as much).  Yesterday I mixed a scoop with some frozen strawberries, and it wasn’t bad, but this morning I threw in half a banana, a cup of milk, and one scoop of mix and was very happy with the taste.  There are 23 grams of protein per scoop of mix and another 8 in the milk for over 30 grams per serving.  I think this will become my routine morning drink.  I may also mix up a double batch and take half to work for an afternoon snack.
