Prepare to have your mind blown. This may indeed be one of my favorite recipe creations yet!!! This smoothie is unreal, and packed with superfoods, anti-oxidants, and nutrients. I had a craving for some chocolate earlier today, which usually tells me I need some protein, so I figured I would “two birds with one stone,” and concot a smoothie for Brunchfest (This is the phenomenon which I call my second breakfast of the day since I am up around 4:30 am, and sometimes need two breakfasts!). So here is a delicious, nutritious protein packed, mostly “Paleo” but definitely “Clean” smoothie. My only negative on this smoothie, a lot of seeds… the raspberry and pomegranate both have seeds, which you can digest, but some people don’t enjoy picking them out of their teeth ;).
In your blender in no particular order combine….
1 cup of Ice
1 cup of Spinach ( I promise you won’t taste it)
3/4 cup of Raspberries
2/3 cup of Pomegranate Seeds ( You could use juice if you can’t find actual pomegranate)
1 Tablespoon Enjoy Life (Dairy Free & Nut Free) Chocolate Mini Chips
1 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
1 scoop (20grams) Chocolate Protein Powder ( I use Stronger Faster Healthier Protein)
1/2 packet of Sambazon Frozen but chopped up Acai (An amazing superfruit… Maybe I will do a post soon?)
Blend, and enjoy – in fact the more you blend, the creamier this one becomes!!! Please comment below and let me know what you think if you try it! Also don’t forget to check out my last post, and enter my #giveaway which features gear from Rogue Fitness and Larabar which is open until Saturday!!!!
