Power Banana Chocolate Protein Smoothie Recipe

I love smoothies! I have at least one a day, at any time. They fill you up, and it’s a great way to get your fruits and veggies and increase your protein intake.

Friend and momme meals creator Kristen has a wonderful recipe to boost your protein — and it’s also great for those mamas who are vegetarian or vegan.

This recipe is packed with nutrients such as calcium, iron, magnesium and fiber, this smoothie will settle those sweet-tooth cravings while helping you feel fuller longer. As Kristen said to me, “Round up all the ingredients, throw them in your blender, and watch the magic happen!”

Here’s what you need:

1 banana
1 cup almond milk
3 tablespoons cacao nibs or 1 1/2 tablespoons cacao powder
2 tablespoons hemp seeds
2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
1 tablespoon unsulfured blackstrap molasses
5 ice cubes
1 pinch sea salt

ENJOY!
