Chocolate-anything gets a big thumbs up for me, all day every day. And when that chocolate something doubles up to also be healthy and nutritious, it gets two massive thumbs up and a wide grin. I kid not, this smoothie tastes like a decadent chocolate thickshake. Miraculously though, it’s sugar free, as well as being packed with plant-based protein, so it’s a win-win smoothie, really.
I have been drinking this smoothie religiously every day primarily because it tastes like what chocolate dreams are made of, but also as a way to survive the ridiculously hot Australian summer weather and to satisfy my unchanging late afternoon sweet tooth. I will often make this smoothie as a post-yoga or pilates protein boost/snack, and it makes me feel great. I’ve chosen to use Bare Blends vegan protein powder, but feel free to add your own favourite protein blend, or none at all if you feel so inclined.
