Y’all know how much I love a smoothie in the morning. They’re delicious, easy to make and you can fill them with all sorts of nutrients to drink on the go. The key to loving your smoothie is making sure that A: it’s delicious enough that you’ll want it all the time and B: it’s got enough protein inside to help keep you full for a while.
Check out this recipe for Chunky Chocolate and Banana Protein Smoothies using Burt’s Bees™ Protein + Healthy Radiance - Chocolate. You’re going to love the flavor and the texture of this yummy drink and the fact that the protein powder is entirely plant-based!
Let’s start by talking about Burt’s Bees Protein + Healthy Radiance, packed with plant-based protein and 25% of the recommended daily value of 12 essential vitamins — A, C, D, E, K and the B-vitamins. I used the chocolate flavor and it’s out of this world in this smoothie.
Combine all of the ingredients in a high-speed blender. I add ice, Greek yogurt, bananas, chocolate pieces, our chocolate protein powder, chocolate almond milk and a few almonds.
Feel free to use those walnuts, but since I’m allergic to walnuts I swapped them out for almonds!
Blend on high until completely smooth. Then pour into a tall glass and garnish with fresh banana slices, almonds and chocolate.
These Chunky Chocolate and Banana Protein Smoothies are the perfect afternoon snack. They taste just like chunky monkey ice cream flavor and they're easy to make!
