Powerful Post-Workout Protein Smoothie

I recently purchased Sunwarrior’s chocolate warrior protein blend and I am LOVIN’ it! It’s super yummy and mixes really well with smoothies. I paid I think $23 for 1Ib. My boyfriend, however, paid around $20 for 2Ib’s of his protein. His protein can be found here on Amazon. He really likes the taste of his and wanted to recommend it to you all! It is gluten free, kosher, vegan, non-GMO, soy free, and USDA certified organic as well. He usually blends his with vanilla almond milk and peanut butter. He says adding some ice can make it more smoothie like, and less like a shake.

Let me tell you about the nutrients in this smoothie…

Vitamins/Minerals:

Calcium (almond milk-45% DV)

Iron (spinach-20% DV, protein-35% DV)

Iodine (maca-17%)

Vitamin A (A LOT in spinach-70% DV)

Vitamin C (spinach-25% DV)

Vitamin D (almond milk-25% DV)

Vitamin E (almond milk-50% DV)

Copper (maca-15%)

Manganese

Magnesium

Riboflavin

Amino acid profile in protein powder:

***I also wanted to note that there are no added sugars in this smoothie…have you ever found a daily value (DV) percentage next to sugar on any nutrition label? No, because companies put CRAZY excessive amounts of sugar into their foods and do not want you to steer away from purchasing their products because their daily value far exceeds 100%. Sugar is our biggest enemy. I highly recommend limiting this stuff!

This smoothie is…

Protein dense

Chocolate-y

Yummy

Filling

Jam packed with nutrients

ANYWAAAYYYS! Here is my favorite protein rich smoothie…

Instructions
  1. Place ingredients into a high speed blender (I recommend Vitamix).
  2. Blend and use the tamper to get anything on the sides.
  3. Once it is your desired consistency, pour into a large glass and enjoy! I topped mine with gluten-free, vegan cocoa granola and coconut shavings.
Recipe Notes

For even MORE protein, you can add hemp seeds, chia seeds, etc...however, I really don't recommend excessive amounts of protein, for it actually isn't good to over-consume. Hence, the reason why a vegan, plant-based diet is a great option!

Let me know if you try it out and what you think, or if you have any recommendations. Tag me in photos if you post to instagram @kenzkooks
