Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie


 

With the holidays in full swing I can already tell I’m not prioritizing some of my normal healthy habits as much as I’d like, especially when it comes to nourishing my body with enough protein, fiber, and healthy fats! With parties and travel on the calendar, I find I have the most control over what I eat for breakfast, so if you’re in the same boat this protein, fiber, and nutrient-rich smoothie is a great way to start your day with ~35 grams of protein and 12 grams of fiber! (Don’t skimp on the cinnamon, it feels festive!) I linked to research on the nutritional benefits and buying tips for of some of the ingredients below if you want to dive deeper!  

Throw everything in a nutribullet or blender and blend for ~30 seconds. Add water to reach desired consistency and blend again. Pour in a tall glass and enjoy!

    Hi Stacie:
    I just tried making your smoothie and it was wonderful. I didn’t have riced cauliflower, hemp seeds or the riced cauliflower on hand. I substituted with one tablespoon of dried unsweetend coconut for the hemp seeds, 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1 pre-frozen whole banana chunks, and used 1-1 cocoa and vanilla powder. The brewed coffee and cinnamon were a really great addition that I hadn’t thought of previously. A new winner for breakfast at our house. XX MaryBeth

      Sounds marvelous! Yes it’s so adaptable and I’ve used cocoa powder in the past when I’m out of protein powder. 🙂 I do find that if I don’t have protein powder (24 g protein) or hemp seeds (additional 9 grams) it’s low in protein, but still lots of great micronutrients! If it doesn’t freak you out, you can always throw a raw egg in for a bit of extra protein and choline! (Not my idea, one of the foremost metabolism researchers, Dr. Ben Bikman, does this for his own family.) I added raw egg occasionally before I was pregnant. xx Stacie
