LJ's Chocolate Berry Smoothie
6 frozen strawberries
1/2 a frozen banana
1.5 cups unsweetened almond milk
1 tbsp. Chia seeds
2 scoops chocolate protein powder
Pour all ingredients into a blender and pulse on ice crush a few times until the frozen items are chopped up, then mix until smooth. Enjoy!
I tend to have this smoothie for breakfast in the morning after my morning workout. I find it keeps me happy and satiated until lunchtime – probably because of the protein powder and the Chia seeds. I use BioTrust Milk Chocolate Low Carb Time Released Protein Blend. I like it because it's made from natural ingredients, has no artificial colors, sweeteners or flavors, and is hormone-free. It also tastes delicious. For this recipe, however, you can use any protein powder you want.
