    Way too much sugar coming the milk. The banana alone sweetens the whole smoothie, assuming the whey is flavorless.

    Back when I was making smoothies for my pre-run snack I was using Carnation evaporated milk. A lot of people barf when they hear me say I like Carnation evaporated milk but it has a lot of uses for cooking.

    According to the nutrition facts on the can a serving size is 30 ml, which is roughly (very roughly) 30 grams, and there are 3 grams of sugar per serving.

    What's with the whole oats powder? If you're using a blender you could get away with using quick oats which are rolled oats that have been smashed/rolled even more (i.e., they're not pre-cooked) and soak them the night before in some of the milk.

    I use Jay Robb whey protein powder. It's not the cheapest one out there but the milk is from cows not treated with BGH and it's sweetened with stevia instead of sugar. They recommend one scoop but I use two because that seems to hold me up longer. I mix it with water and egg whites and sometimes add cocoa or flavored extracts ( almond extract makes a really good shake ). It's granulated to mix well in a shaker and I never have to add sweetener to the flavorings or cocoa because the stevia is sweet enough. That's my post workout shake but if I get hungry in between meals and am not able to eat a good snack or mini meal I'll have the shake with a handful of raw almonds or a spoon of peanut butter. My experience has been that real food is usually better than shakes, but for post-workout or in a pinch this is about the best thing I've found.
