Banana Bread Protein Shake

So one day last week the cottage cheese in the shakes kind of got to me.  So I decided to go with Greek Yogurt since I had a coupon and it was on sale.  I didn't taste the Banana Shake with Cottage Cheese so I can't compare but the Greek Yogurt version is good.

It tastes like a banana shake.  It doesn't resemble Banana Bread, but I still like it.
