Better-than-Ice-Cream Chocolate Protein Shake
As I am still recovering from eye surgery, things are a little blurry over here (literally), so I have to use today’s post to direct you over to Naturally Sweet Recipes, where yesterday I guested! As soon as I can see again I’ll update this post with the recipe. (**UPDATE: I added it! I hope it doesn’t have too many typos. Still not seeing very well!)
And yes, there you will find the most DELICIOUS chocolate protein shake I’ve ever made. I am so addicted to this I’ve been having it on a daily basis for weeks now. I promise you it tastes just like melted ice cream. Ridiculous. See? I even tweeted about it the first day I made it, I just couldn’t believe how good it was:
It’s actually good for you too! Cocoa powder provides the chocolate flavour and we all know the benefits of cocoa powder! Sure, I could be using my protein shakes as a chance to get in extra fruit or veg by having a green smoothie or a fruit shake, but I get lots of produce elsewhere in my diet and to be honest, I go through phases like this where I love something so much that I scarf it down and then later on I am so sick of it I have to completely abstain from it for weeks before I love it again.
Am I the only one like that? Yikes.
Anyway, have a great day! I’ve lined up a post to take care of you on Monday and then who knows, maybe by then I’ll be able to see again to post (I have a back-up post lined up just in case I can’t…promise!).
1/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
3-5 ice cubes
1 scoop protein powder (mine provides 24g protein a scoop, so if you use one with less/more protein adjust the nutritional info accordingly)
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1-2 stevia packets (to taste) or liquid sweetener of choice (1-2 tsp agave, honey, maple syrup etc)
