Chocolate Protein Smoothie

Banana Avocado Cacao Smoothie

Chocolate, I love it. Milk, dark, even white chocolate – which is in fact not even chocolate at all. If I’m having a cheat meal, give me Ben & Jerry’s Baked Alaska or Milka Oreo and I’m one happy girl. But as we all know, this is far from healthy. Once in a while it’s ok, but it won’t give you the abs that you’re dreaming about.

Chocolate Protein Smoothie
For Fitgirlcode & Run2day I created a Cacao Smoothie, which is lovely, creamy, thick and fullfilling. I’ve twisted the recipe a little for those in need of more protein and less sugar. Its the perfect combo of rapidly absorbed vitamins, minerals, protein, carbs and electrolytes.

What do you need for one big smoothie? 

  • 200 ml water
  • 1 banana
  • ½ avocado
  • 1 scoop Whey Isolaat
  • 2 tbs raw cacao powder
  • Pinch of salt

Mix all the ingredients in a blender. If the consistency is too thick for you, add more water. Drink it right after your workout. Also really good at home, if you heat it up in a small pan. Healthy hot cacao! Add some cacao nibs on top and you’re done.
