Chocolate! I have to say I am completely and utterly addicted to chocolate. I mean who doesn’t love it? I have to indulge in some form of chocolate at least once a day, usually in the form of dark chocolate. But recently I have been getting my fix in a super healthy way packed with protein. This smoothie is so good you think you are eating the actual Almond Joy candy bar. Not only does it provide you with protein and nutrients it satisfies your sweet tooth cravings too. Nutritious and chocolate, I must be dreaming!
With the temps hitting close to 120 degrees here in Phoenix this coming weekend (which is pure torture by the way), I am thinking of ways to keep the family cool with frosty treats. My kids literally inhale the chocolate smoothies I make. It is a nutritious substitution for a milkshake or ice cream treat for them.
This smoothie is super creamy and dreamy. Coconut oil lends that subtle taste of coconut while the almond milk provides the nuttiness. Top it off with some toasted coconut chips and cacao nibs and you get a slight texture crunch that is divine.
- 1-2 scoops Chocolate Protein Powder (find a top quality undenatured whey one- I can recommend the one I use just message me)
- 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
- 1 Cup Almond Milk
- ¼ teaspoon Cinnamon
- Coconut Chips for garnish (I use Dang coconut chips)
- Cacao Nibs for garnish
- Ice as necessary to thicken up the smoothie
Place Ice, Almond Milk, Sinnamon and chocolate protein powder in blender and blend until smooth.
Garnish with coconut chips and cacao nibs.
