Salted Chocolate Almond Butter Protein Smoothie. Vegan.
I’ve been a long time fan of the high protein smoothie. Once I started working outside the home – packing up a smoothie in my Yeti was the perfect solution. I hate taking breaks so I can walk around drinking this and be filled for hours on end.
I’ll provide options below for optional substitutions as well. This smoothie is creamy and very filling. I typically eat a lot in the a.m and afternoon and have a smoothie for dinner if I don’t work. I go to bed so earlier that this is easier for me to digest.
Okay let’s get this ball rollin’…
1.25 cups of unsweetened nut or oat based milk
1 scoop of Vega Sport Vanilla or Chocolate
1 tbl of raw cacao powder (you can omit this if you use chocolate protein powder)
1 tbl of nut butter (I use my own recipe)
1 tbl of chia seeds
1 frozen banana
1 pinch of salt
Ice cubes (3-4)
Put all of the ingredients into a high-powered blender. Blend it all until creamy. You can drink straight away or store in a travel mug for the next day.
