If you’re anything like me, you craveeee something indulgent after a workout, or maybe just feel like you deserve it because you did, after all, just worked out!  Instead of surrendering to your craving and ruining all of your hard work, opt for a protein smoothie to fuel and replenish your muscles!  This specific smoothie has all the components of an indulgent snack anddd is full of the nutrients your body needs after a sweat inducing workout.  The chocolate/coffee combo comes from a great superfood powder I found at my local health foods store.  The brand is Essential Living Foods: Coco Gogo Energy Elixir.  I also use this mix for making hot lattes with almond milk!  Add a spoon full of your favorite nut butter, a frozen banana, and a scoop of protein powder and you have the fixin’s of a great smoothie.

Protein Shake for 1

5 ice cubes

1 banana (if frozen omit the ice cubes)

2 tablespoons Coco Energy Elixir ( or just cocoa powder)

1 scoop protein powder ( I use Jay Robb’s  unflavored egg white protein)

1 tablespoon nut butter of choice

6 oz. almond milk or liquid of choice

Combine all ingredients into a blender and mix until smooth!  Depending on the size of your blender ( I used a single serve magic bullet ) you may need more or less of a liquid.
