Chocolate Covered Almond Smoothie (IBS & Weight Loss Friendly)

Chocolate Covered Almond Smoothie (IBS & Weight Loss Friendly)

Do you want to create chocolate flavoured smoothies, like this one, but only have vanilla or unflavoured protein powder?

Here’s a quick tip to help you achieve a rich chocolate flavour from your smoothies when using a vanilla or unflavoured protein powder!

Just add 1-2 teaspoons of cacao powder into your blender along with the other smoothie ingredients. Blend & enjoy! That’s it!! Told ya it was a quick tip ?.

Cacao is the purest form of chocolate which is why I recommend it. It’s an easy find since most grocery stores carry it nowadays. You can also find cacao powder online.

Now, whether your protein powder is vanilla, chocolate or unflavoured, give this addicting smoothie creation a try. I promise, it’ll be love at first sip ?

Easy Green Smoothie with Protein

Are you looking for an easy way to fill your body with nutrient-rich fuel that’ll keep you feeling energized for the busy day and week a head?

If your lifestyle is anything like mine then you don’t always have time to fill your fridge and freezer with green goodness – and even if it’s full, you may not have time to prepare your greens.

That’s where a high-quality greens powder comes to the rescue. My fridge and freezer might not always be stocked with greens, BUT my cupboard is!

PaleoGreens has come to my rescue on many occasions, including:

  • when I’m in a rush and need to prep my smoothie fast
  • when I’m low on energy
  • when I feel a cold coming on
  • when I’m super lazy, but still want to fuel myself with good stuff
  • when I’m looking to cleanse and detox

Here’s what makes this organic greens powder top in its class …

? Fruits: High-antioxidant berries, such as cranberry, raspberry, and blueberry + camu camu which is high in Vitamin C
? Sulfur-rich cruciferous vegetables + sprouts: Broccoli, kale, cauliflower, collards
? Colorful and high phytonutrient vegetables: Beet, carrot, tomato, spinach
? Detox Greens & Juices: Spirulina, chlorella, barley grass and wheat grass juice powders — high in antioxidants and great for detox
? ORAC Blend: Proprietary blend of grape seed and grape skin extracts, with guaranteed high ORAC (oxygen radical absorption capacity) content. The ORAC score is a measurement of a food’s potential for neutralizing the damaging free radicals implicated in aging and physical degeneration.

?Over 90% organic ingredients
?No grain/legumes fibers or components, least allergenic
