I don’t know about your house, but some mornings it is really hard to get in a healthy breakfast.
Over the summer, my husband and I really focused on making sure we start our mornings off the right way! That’s when we started making this smoothie every morning. We love it because it only takes about 2 minutes to throw together, the girls love it too, and it gives us lots of protein and superfoods to start our morning.
Watch this video to see how to make your Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie:
Serves about 2.
1 Scoop of Vanilla Protein Powder
1 Tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Tablespoon of Peanut Flour
4 Cups of ice
1 Cup of almond milk
Throw everything in your blender and blend for 2 minutes or until smooth.
Which Protein Powder is right for you?
When you have goals to lose weight, build more lean muscles, or just add more protein into your diet to help stabilize your blood sugar, a good quality protein powder is a great option.
I chose these protein powders because they are low in carbs and less than one gram of sugar (which was a HUGE plus for me!).
The benefits of adding a protein powder into your diet is a quick way to increase your protein intake without needing to eat a lot more beef or chicken. We have two different protein powders and each has their unique benefits depending on what your priorities are. Both are available in Vanilla and Chocolate : )

[…] Focus on eating protein and low carb foods first. These are non starchy vegetables, low carb fruits like berries, milk products like unsweetened yogurt and cheese. Good protein sources like fish, eggs, turkey, chicken and beef. Nuts and seeds are also good for getting in your nutrients. Quinoa is a lower carb “grain like” source and Chana Dal beans are low glycemic beans. Protein Powder can be used in a smoothie when you are on the go or need a snack in the afternoon.

Is the banana frozen? And, a whole one? It looks so good and I am going to make it. Sounds cool and refreshing!
You can do either! If you have a frozen one, it will make it more icy – but I have done both fresh and frozen and it always turns out perfect!
