I don’t know about you, but when the weather starts getting warmer, there is nothing I like more than a smoothie. Better yet…a chocolate smoothie! I am a girl who loves her chocolate. My favorite dessert would be chocolate cake with chocolate ice cream, chocolate sauce, and …rainbow sprinkles! You thought I would say chocolate sprinkles, didn’t you?
Losing over 300 pounds, I had to find alternatives and ways to still enjoy chocolate…just in moderation and in healthier ways. So while I do enjoy cake and ice cream every once and a while, I found a healthier way to satisfy my chocolate tooth while keeping my health and fitness goals in mind. This chocolate protein smoothie with peanut butter and coconut is not only my favorite smoothie, but it is something that I can enjoy guilt-free every single day! I hope that you all enjoy this chocolate protein smoothie recipe just as much as I do!
For smoothies, I like using powdered peanut butter, but I also love adding real natural peanut or almond butter too. You can even add some spinach to this to get in some more greens! I like using almond milk, but of course, your milk option is up to you! This chocolate protein powder I am using is one that I have used for a few years and it is definitely one of my favorite protein powders. Add some unsweetened coconut flakes and BOOM!!! (tip- add in a little coconut extract to give it a more coconut-y taste).
