Chocolate Protein Smoothie

Chocolate Protein Smoothie

I made this Chocolate Protein Smoothie this morning and I had to share it because this left me feeling satisfied all the way until lunch. I added a few extra goodies to give me a boost of antioxidants, including organic raw cacao powder (my favourite), goji berries and some alkalising organic barley spirulina powder. The result is a delicious, creamy protein smoothie that isn’t too sweet and left me feeling ready for the day ahead.

This Chocolate Protein Smoothie is free from gluten, dairy, sugar and preservatives. It is also vegan friendly. The sweetness comes from the banana, mango and a little bit of concentrated liquid stevia that I add in last. This smoothie would also be fantastic after a big workout. Enjoy!

Chocolate Protein Smoothie

Serves 1 (or makes 2 smaller serves)

Ingredients

  • 1 banana (frozen or fresh), cut into chunks
  • 1 cup or 130g of frozen mango chunks
  • 1 small carton (330mL) of organic coconut water (with no added sugar), chilled
  • 1 heaped tablespoon of organic raw cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon – 1/2 tablespoon of your favourite raw, green alkalising powder (I use raw Organic Barley Spirulina Blend from Nutra Organics)
  • 3 tablespoons of unflavoured raw vegan protein powder (I love to use Amazonia Raw Protein Isolate in Natural flavour)
  • 2 tablespoons of goji berries
  • 3 drops of concentrated liquid stevia

Method

  1. Place all of your ingredients into your high speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. If you are using a Thermomix, blend on speed 8 for 1.5 minutes.
  2. Pour into your favourite large glass and enjoy straight away.
