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!
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)
Place all ingredients in blender and mix until smooth.
