Chocolate Raspberry Superfood Smoothie
Some days my mornings are so busy I really don't have a lot of time to spend on breakfast for myself. That's why I love the ideas of smoothies for breakfast. You can pack tons of nutrition in a smoothie and make it in just a few minutes. They are also great to take on the go when your running out the door (Like I do almost every day!).
This combination is one of my favorites so far. It is so good, it will be hard to convince yourself it that it is good for you :) It was also approved by my kids so it is a great snack for kids too!
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/4 cup raspberries
1 tablespoon chia powder (I use Navitas Naturals)
1 tablespoon raw cacao powder (also Navitas Naturals)
1 tablespoon hemp seeds shelled (I use Nutiva)
1 scoop chocolate whey protein (or any other protein powder you like, I use Blue Bonnet Whey)
1/2 frozen banana
2 ice cubes
Put all ingredients in a blender (I use a Vitamix) and blend until smooth. This will be a thick shake.
