chocolate for breakfast? hello! :)

a good friend recently introduced me to chocolate protein smoothies. i typically stick to organic fruit smoothies, but i thought i’d try adding a little (chocolatey!) protein boost to my morning bevvie this time around. so i guess you can have chocolate for breakfast after all!

smoothies make for a fantastic breakfast on-the-go — and better yet, you can prepare it the night before. it’s become part of my evening routine when i’m packing lunch for the next day. just make sure you don’t leave the smoothie in the blender overnight… pour the smoothie into a cup with a tight lid and pop it in the fridge. voila! breakfast will be waiting for you at sunrise. :)

blend well:
– 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
– 1 scoop meal replacement powder
– 1 tbsp flaxseed meal (ground)
– 1 tbsp coffee grinds (optional)
– 1 cup water
– 5-6 large ice cubes

for an extra little pick-me-up, you can also add some coffee grinds to the mix.

(tip: if you’re still looking to add some fruit here, try adding 1/2 banana — peeled & sliced — to make it a chocolate banana smoothie! yummers.) 

quick poll:
do you typically add protein powder to your smoothies?

  1. Great smoothie and you’re right, perfect for on-the-go!
