Sunday Recipe: Another Smoothie

Well, I’m done with my detox and ready to move back into my normal mindful eating, watching my calories and nutrients to make sure I’m eating enough of the right stuff. So I celebrated with this yummy smoothie.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Protein Smoothie

6-oz. container of whole milk yogurt
1 small frozen banana
2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1 Tbsp. ground flaxseeds
1 scoop vanilla whey protein
2 Tbsp. smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup water
30g spinach

Blend everything together in the blender. I put things in the blender jar in the order I listed them. Also, I couldn’t taste my vanilla protein powder at all, so this would be an excellent smoothie to make with unflavored protein. And I’m sure almond or cashew butter would work instead of peanuts if you want to avoid them for some reason.  Seriously, though, this was like a milkshake.  Maybe I could have used a little less water to make it thicker, but I didn’t want to tax my poor, crappy blender.
