Strawberry Banana Chocolate Protein Smoothie

So I combined my two favorite smoothies into one yesterday, and it was magical. I shared it on my Instagram stories and got several requests for the recipe so here it is! It’s going to blow your mind how simple it is…

You may remember my chocolate banana smoothie from last summer, and then the strawberry one I shared a few months after. Well, it’s kinda like if they had a smoothie baby. I was really craving fruit yesterday, but my stomach/appetite has been really weird lately so I figured a smoothie would probably be easy on it. I also needed to pack some protein too because I’m horrrrible at eating meat 90% of the time. You should try to get most (ideally all) of your protein from food sources rather than relying solely on protein powder, but sometimes the convenience is totally worth it! Protein powder is a great thing as long as it’s not your primary source of protein all day every day! It’s also great for people like me who really struggle with meat, lol.

Here it is:

1.5 frozen bananas (the more banana, the better the smoothie texture!)
5-7 frozen strawberries
1 scoop chocolate protein powder (I just use Gold Standard chocolate whey)
1 tablespoon cacao powder *this is the game changer ingredient*
1 tablespoon natural peanut butter
1 stevia packet OR 1 squeeze of natural honey

Blend until it’s smooth and enjoy!!! If it’s too thin/watery, add a few more strawberries! The flavor in this smoothie is amazing but it takes 2 minutes to throw together! Let me know if you try it, OR let me know if you have a yummy smoothie recipe I need to try!
