Chunky Monkey Protein Smoothie


Ingredients:

  • 1-2 cups ice I like to use 2 cups for a very thick smoothie
  • 1 banana sliced and frozen
  • 1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Cashew Milk or other milk of choice
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1-2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • Optional Garnish: chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and puree until thick and smooth. Garnish with chocolate chips, if desired. Serve immediately!

Recipe Notes:

  1. If you’re preparing this healthy smoothie for kids, you can omit the protein powder and substitute with Greek yogurt. Since the protein powder adds not only thickness, but also flavor to the smoothie, you’ll want to use a sweetened vanilla Greek yogurt or use a plain Greek yogurt and add your own sweetener, to taste. You will also need an additional 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder for that chocolate taste. The taste and texture of the smoothie recipe with yogurt will not be quite the same as the protein powder version, but your family will still love it!
  2. Keep the healthy smoothie recipe low sugar by using unsweetened vanilla almond milk and a sugar free protein powder.
  3. I prefer whey protein for flavor and thickness in this smoothie, but if you prefer a plant-based breakfast, you can substitute with a vegan protein powder.
  4. For purposes of calculating nutrition information, I used my favorite IdealLean Chocolate Brownie Protein Powder (which has 80 calories per scoop). You can substitute with a different protein powder, but the nutrition information may vary. Nutrition information does not include optional toppings.
