Double Chocolate Banana Almond Smoothie With Greens

12 WWPP Posted by 10 months ago 0 Comments

Since starting Whole30 I’ve given up my post-workout protein powder since it was loaded with sugar and sweeteners. In its place I purchased a  NutriBullet so I could make quick smoothies at home and I could’nt be happier!

This things rocks! And I’ve used it daily since getting it from Amazon.

Double Chocolate Banana Almond SmoothieTo replace my post-workout shake I came up with this tasty concoction that is way better and has way more nutrients. It may not look pretty but it’s super yummy and filled with lots of good stuff!

This is what I do…

  • 1 ripe banana (~100g)
  • 9 tbsp pasteurized liquid egg whites (138g)
  • 2 tbsp natural almond butter (30g)
  • 1/2 oz cacao nibs (14 g)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder (10g)
  • 3 cups spinach and mixed greens (85g)
  • 2-3 ice cubes

Place all ingredients in the blender or bullet except the ice. Blend until smooth.

Add ice and blend again.

Done!

I sprinkled a few extra nibs on top in an attempt to make it slightly pretty but I ended up loving the little chewy bites at the end!

It’s pretty impressive and very convenient if you live in an area where finding high quality meats is hard.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.
