We’ve talked about it before, but I’ll admit it again: I’m a smoothie addict. And, well, so are my kids.
What’s not to love? They are quick and easy, you can hide all sorts of things in them, and if you’re doing it right, they are absolutely nutrient-packed.
Smoothies are a daily thing in our house. Sometimes protein, sometimes green, sometimes made from whatever suits our fancy that minute.
This week I was craving something sweet. I blame it on the baby bump, but it’s really just me. I like sweets. 🙂 I indulged in some dark chocolate almond milk at the store but hadn’t really thought about what I was going to do with it. Then I started craving a candy bar, and well…
Okay, so maybe not the healthiest thing I’ve ever whipped up, but with 17g of protein and a ton of other nutrients, I’m still classifying it as healthy. Maybe I should skip the dollop of whipped cream from now on though. 😉
8oz Almond Milk – I used Dark Chocolate
2 scoops of protein powder – I’ve made it with both chocolate and vanilla Shaklee 180 Smoothee Mix
2 tbsp shredded coconut
1/2 a frozen banana, sliced
Blend it all together in a blender and enjoy! I topped mine with a bit of whipped cream, more shredded coconut and some slivered almonds, but it’s perfectly delicious without the toppings, too!
