Healthy Chocolate Protein Smoothie
This is my go-to smoothie for spring! It's a nutritious yet light option for breakfast or makes the perfect protein-packed post-workout snack. Mint is known to aid in digestion and pairs nicely with the cocoa. And the avocado adds a healthy dose of fats and antioxidants that will help to keep you feeling satisfied long after you enjoy this delicious smoothie. The cinnamon is optional but I absolutely love the flavor plus it's one of the best ways to rev up your metabolism and maintain a healthy blood sugar level.
What you'll need (serves 1)
- 1 C almond milk (unsweetened)
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (I love Sun Warrior)
- 1/3 avocado
- 2t cocoa powder (unsweetened)
- 2-3 mint leaves
- handful of fresh spring greens
- dash of cinnamon
Start with the almond milk in the bottom of the blender then add remaining ingredients (except cinnamon) and blend until smooth. Stir in the cinnamon and enjoy!
