The 3 reasons why I (Stephanie) love this smoothie:
1. Power Packed Nutrition in the Protein- whether you are using it post work-out, as a meal, or as a hearty snack - this protein contains high quality ingredients (I accept nothing less) and it's loaded with protein, low in fat and low carb (low glycemic) and gluten free. Think long, lean, nourished muscles.
2. Easy To Make & Delicious- Enough said.
3. Makes my boyfriend (therefore me) really happy. Same as #2.
-2-3 Scoops Shaklee* Performance Build 100% Grass Fed Whey Protein, Vanilla (they have chocolate too)
-1 cup Cocoa Almond Cashew Beverage from Trader Joe (or milk of choice....)
-1 Tbsp nut butter
-Dash coconut flakes and/ or cacao nibs
Feel free to add 1/2 banana or handful of berries. It will increase sugar yet the protein and nut milk will balance out the glycemic load. I have hypoglycemia and it doesn't trigger me.
Add everything to bullet or blender and enjoy!
