High protein and healthy fat = YES Ma’am! Quick, easy, and perfect for after that intense workout or when you need a quick filling snack! This smoothie literally tastes like a milkshake and when the hubby and I start having some kiddos, I for sure am gonna make this for them! After a 3 mile run and a mini at home workout yesterday, I made this right away which filled my body with the protein and nutrients it needed, and at the same time helped curve my appetite until dinner! Success!!!
2 tsp cacao powder
6 ice cubes
1/2 to 1 cup almond milk (depending on your desired consistency)
1 TBS Peanut butter
(I use Justin’s Classic Peanut Butter, found at Whole Foods)
NOTE: Cacao powder is a healthy raw chocolate powder packed with antioxidants! I purchase it at Whole Foods and you can find out more about it by clicking HERE. Check out my other smoothie post using the same powder HERE
I have a Vitamix so I usually just throw it all in and blend until smooth. Some other blenders may have a difficult time with the ice so you can either try crushing up your ice cubes first or using less ice cubes and a frozen banana and water instead!
*If you love smoothies I highly recommend saving up for a VItamix and don’t worry, you do not have to buy a brand new one!!! I purchased a reconditioned one for half the price and it works aaaahhhmazing! Click HERE to see the reconditioned Vitamin blenders.*
