Choconut Protein Shake

 

There is nothing more glorious than the winning combination of chocolate and coconut; NOTHING, people, NOTHING. The taste is both rich and refreshing, so wouldn’t it be fantastic if you could recharge on this combination (guilt free!) after a workout? 

Well, guess what…

YOU CAN. 

Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce to you the Choconut Protein Shake! My mom designed this delectable shake a couple years ago, and I have been hooked on it ever since she offered me my first sip!

Here is what you will need: 

1 banana

1 scoop of vanilla whey protein powder (or one spoonful of peanut butter) 

1 handful of ice

6 oz of vanilla coconut milk (or almond milk)

2 tablespoons vanilla Greek yogurt

1 tablespoon coconut butter 

1 tablespoon Hershey’s unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon flaxseed 

1 splash of vanilla extract

This shake is a perfect breakfast or post-workout option, because it’s delicious and packed with protein! This will help you rebuild muscle post workout, and keep you full longer so you won’t be stuck snacking a few hours later! I wouldn’t recommend it as a side dish to a meal, but it’s a great meal replacement. The greatest part about the shake is that you can tailor it to your own tastes at the moment. If you would like to have a stronger peanut flavor, you can swap the whey protein powder for peanut butter. 

When I make the shake for myself, I pass on the Greek yogurt, because I like to make my shakes dairy free, but it tastes delicious either way! 

Depending on what you decide to add or subtract, the shake is between 200-320 calories. 

Drink up and enjoy the refreshingly tasty boost! 🙂
