Last time, I explained why not all protein powders are created equal and what you need to know before you buy.
Today, I’m giving you a great recipe to use a delicious-tasting, nutrient-rich protein powder like Alkamind Organic Daily Protein, our new organic protein powder that contains NONE of the nasty acidic fillers or additives that most brands rely on.
This recipe uses the Creamy Chocolate blend (there’s Vanilla Coconut too) along with raw cacao and bananas and blueberry to amp up the flavor on this protein-packed smoothie. It’s got almonds, flaxseeds and almond milk in addition to the protein powder, so it’s ideal for after a workout or run.
CACAO PROTEIN SMOOTHIE
1 cup spinach
1/2 cup soaked raw almonds (ideally soaked overnight)
1/4 cup ground flaxseed (i.e. golden flaxseed)
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
1 banana, frozen
1/2 cup blueberries, frozen
1 tsp. lemon juice, fresh squeezed
1/4 tsp. Sea salt (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt)
1 cup almond milk (or coconut)
1 scoop Alkamind Organic Daily Protein (Creamy Chocolate)
Blend and enjoy!
