I drink a protein smoothie nearly everyday, workout or not. Not only does it ensure that I meet my protein needs for the day since I’m not a big meat eater, but it is easy & delicious! My chocolate cravings are always satisfied after one of these babies. Into the blender goes:
1 banana, broken into pieces
1 cup coffee (I use whats left in the pot from that morning–and yes, I make extra coffee just for this purpose)
splash of milk (any variety you choose–I use almond but you could also use coconut, rice, or dairy milk)
8-10 frozen cherries
1 scoop Green Vibrance
1T peanut butter
1t cocoa powder
handful of ice cubes
Aaaand there you go! Delicious and nutritious, plus a caffeine boost. This is a basic recipe with room for many different substitutions–vanilla protein instead of chocolate, any other frozen fruit instead of cherries, any other nut butter besides peanut, fruit juice instead of coffee.
What is your favorite smoothie combination?
