This is a tasty protein shake! You can use whatever type of protein powder you prefer (raw, soy, rice, whey)..I use a pharmaceutical grade whey that can be purchased online. It is by far the most flavorful whey protein powder I have tasted. It does not give me gas or constipate ( I know a little to much information but it is important to know)...I grow mint in my garden ( add as much as you like)...I have photographed all ingredients above just in case you were wondering the ones I use and prefer!
I also added about a teaspoon of Extra virgin coconut oil to my smoothie ( coconut oil helps in losing weight ...believe it or not...it also helps to make the smoothies creamy!) Ok now for the recipe:
8 oz. of Almond breeze chocolate almond milk ( unsweetened only)
1 scoop of chocolate protein powder (about 1/4 cup)
2 tbsp. of raw cacao ( Navista naturals)
1tbsp of chia seeds ( no need to grind these)
1tbsp of hemp SEEDS (not powder)
15 fresh mint leaves ( more if you really like mint)
1 teasp. EV Coconut oil
5-6 ice cubes
Throw everything in your blender mix until smooth!
