This smoothie recipe is an old favorite of mine. It has a great balance of carbs, fat and protein which makes it a complete meal when you are on the go or if you are fueling up after an intense workout. It also packs a big nutrient punch with gut flora balancing coconut kefir, antioxidant rich cacao powder, and mineral rich pumpkin protein powder PLUS it's soy and dairy-free.
Chocolate Coco Banana Protein Smoothie - Serves 1
- 2 Tbsps pumpkin protein powder or 1 scoop of your favorite brand (I shoot for at least 20g protein per serving)
- 2 Tbsps cacao powder
- 1 cup coconut kefir, I used store bought but you can make it at home too!
- 1 small banana
- 2 Tbsp organic almond butter
- Stevia to taste (I like mine sweet!)
Mix all together in a blender (I list all my fave blenders here), add cold water or unsweetened coconut milk if needed. Enjoy!
