Mocha Protein Smoothie

I drink this shake usually 6 out of 7 mornings a week!

It contains a lot of goodness in it but unfortunately the colour doesn’t come out looking too hot. But whatever, it’s good for us and that’s what matters!

I currently use Kaizen Canada Vegan Protein powder I switch between the vanilla and chocolate flavour. But for this recipe I definitely prefer the chocolate! They also carry a Whey Protein if you prefer. It’s sold at Costco & Sobeys and of course at https://kaizennaturals.com/

I use to workout at Movati and after workouts I’d get the chunky monkey smoothie and it was sooooo good! But then I realized I can make them for a fraction of the price! So here’s my copy cat with a few twists:

Recipe:

1 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

3-5 ice cubes

Double Shot Espresso – I use Chiaro from Nespresso; you can also use any coffee here, just know that a coffee is larger then an espresso so you may have to adjust your milk and ice cube combo accordingly.

1/4 cup water (basically to get the excess espresso out of the coffee cup)

1 scoop chocolate protein powder

1 tbsp peanut butter (Or almond butter)

1/2-1 banana

1 tbsp flax seeds (heyo fibre!!)

1 tbsp Maca powder (a natural de-stresser, yes please!)

1 tbsp MCT oil (heyyyy brain power)

Drop all ingredients in a blender and blend it up and enjoy!
