How many times have you searched on Pinterest for a recipe?  I have no doubt that you are going to love this.  We all need our chocolate fix.  I’m not a big fan of chocolate but I am a big fan of healthy eating and this Chocolate Banana Protein Smoothie is one of my favourites.  You can’t get anywhere without proper nutrition and I am all about taste, convenience and eating the best that I possibly can.  As promised, I am giving you my favourite Chocolate Banana Protein Smoothie.  It is so good it feels bad.

A new breakfast or snack?

The struggle is real for our busy lives.  Don’t be tempted by the drive through, make this easy recipe at home and freeze it for popsicles when you are having a sugar craving.  Have you heard that sugar is as addictive as crack!  Time to ingest the healthy sugars.

  • 1 tbsp chia seeds for healthy fibre

Trina’s Tidbits: 

If making for kids, remove the protein power. I feed my kids the best quality ingredients and natural protein sources when possible. To make this a “peppermint smoothie” add clean peppermint oil or fresh peppeRmint leaves.
