Cupid’s Protein Smoothie
Banana Berry Smoothie
Gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, nut free option
Ingredients: Makes 2-3 servings
- 2 cups unsweetened plant based milk
- 2 tbsp almond butter
- One serving protein powder of choice *I use this
- 2 tsp chia or flax seed
- 8 frozen strawberries
- 1 banana
- 1 tsp unsweetened cacao powder
How to Make:
- Load the liquid first in a blender
- Add the rest of the ingredients in the order above
- Blend and enjoy
- Save any left over in a sealed mason jar *it will change colour because of oxidization
Opt for more natural sources of protein when possible. If you can mix between using protein powder and plant based sources of protein, you will give yourself a well rounded diet and nutrients.
Look for a Protein Powder that has the NSF certification to guarantee cleanliness. I love this one.
