Post Workout Smoothie

The peanut butter provides about 4 grams of protein all on its own. One tablespoon of chia seeds will give you 5 grams of fibre, 2 grams of protein and 5 grams of fat (of which 3 grams are Omega 3s!). If you add the protein powder then you’re up another 10 grams or so.

 

Not a bad way to start the day!

 

This recipe makes one 8oz. cup but you can always double the recipe to make a large batch and double the nutrients!

 

Ingredients

1 cup vanilla almond milk

1 1/2 tbsp creamy peanut butter

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tbsp protein powder* or unsweetened cocoa powder

Optional: 2 – 3 dates, for sweetness (If dates are stiff, soak in water for a few minutes before using)

 

Directions

  • Place all ingredients in blender and mix until smooth.

  • Enjoy!

*I recommend the Veggie Elite Chocolate Mocha
