So if you haven’t seen on social media yet, I’m about 9 weeks pregnant! (Yay! Surprise!)
But unlike the pregnancy “glow”…. I have been looking more green lately, haha. It has made life very interesting these days.
I wanted to share a recipe that has been good for dealing with my morning sickness, plus just busy mornings when we need to get out the door, or need a snack for my pickiest eaters!
This is great if you LOVE chocolate, but want to enjoy it guilt free… want to sneak in more fruits and veggies, but don’t always want to eat asparagus, haha. Plus, it is so easy to throw in the blender… you won’t even have to heat up the kitchen!
Low Carb Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
* 1 Scoop of Rich Chocolate Protein Powder
* 1 Tablespoon of Peanut Flour
* 2 Scoops of Chocolate Greens
* 4 Cups of Ice
* 1/2 of a Large Avocado
note: You can substitute a banana for the avocado if you prefer the taste, but I love having extra healthy fats in my smoothie!
You simply blend the ingredients together, and I add a little water (or Almond Milk if you prefer) to get the consistency I like.
You may have to experiment a bit to find the best ratio for you!
One reason I love this particular shake is that it’s very low in carbohydrates, but manages to not taste like cardboard!
This is my third pregnancy, and with my first I developed gestational diabetes.
It was REALLY tricky my first pregnancy, because I didn’t know any tricks of eating low carb and still be able to enjoy some of my favorite foods. But now, I feel like I’m a pro! Especially with products like my low carb chocolate protein powder.
Chocolate Greens have been a lifesaver for me, since it has over 30 different fruits, veggies, and superfoods all in one supplement, and it’s really easy to mix into other things (especially since taking pills has been really difficult with this morning sickness!).
When you give your body what it needs, it will love you back!
As a mom, I’m always looking for sneaky ways to add in extra fruits and veggies into my kids’ foods and this is one really stealth trick!
Both of these products are MUST HAVES in my pantries at all times (believe me when I ran out of Chocolate Greens earlier this week, I called my friend for an emergency tub! Thankfully she was right over in just a few minutes and I could enjoy my chocolate shake in no time.)
I know your family is going to love the yummy, healthy treats you can enjoy guilt free.
