Most mornings of the week I prepare breakfast for my husband and myself & it is usually a smoothie.
This morning I was especially inspired to whip up something delicious because I had just had a seriously hard leg workout. My body was screaming for nutrition! So a Peanut Butter, Banana & Chocolate Smoothie it was! It definitely helps that it tastes like dessert, too.
Benefits: An awesome dose of protein to feed your muscles post-workout, lots of clean fuel to keep you going all morning, more than half of your daily fiber intake, trans-fat free & packed full of magnesium & potassium for more post-workout recovery.
Peanut Butter, Banana & Chocolate Smoothie
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 Tbsp organic peanut butter (I like Nuts to You, but use whatever brand you like)
- 1 scoop Sun Warrior Warrior Blend Vanilla protein powder (or protein powder of your choosing)
- 1.5 Tbsp raw cacao powder (this is the chocolatey, good-for-your-brain & muscles part)
- 2 Tbsp flaxseed
- 1.5 cups unsweetened, almond milk
Blend all ingredients together in your blender, Vitamix or Magic Bullet and enjoy!
