Recipe: Cocoa-Nutty Power Smoothie

Whether I need a quick fix post-exercise or I’m headed out to the grocery store and don’t want to be tempted to kill my budget with extras, this is my go-to quick meal, because I can get greens, protein, and some other dense nutrients in a matter of minutes. Add to that, it tastes great and I keep returning to this recipe over and over!

Cocoa-Nutty Power SmoothieCocoa-Nutty


  • 1 scoop Chocolate Protein Powder (I use Chocolate Shakeology for the most dense nutrients, but use whatever you can get your hands on!)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1-2 tsp Nut butter (your preference-almond, peanut, etc)
  • 1/2 large banana (ripe or frozen)
  • 1 cup spinach, packed
  • Ice, one handful (or more to your liking)


  1. Pack the spinach into the bottom of the blender and add water and almond milk. Blend to liquefied state.
  2. Add in scoop of powder, nut butter, banana and ice. Blend until smooth!
