Chocolate (can’t call it a smoothie) Milkshake

By far my favorite blender drink.  Ever.

So we all know I love my Nutribullet.  Using it or a blender, you can make this chocolate protein drink that tastes (almost) as good as a good ol’ chocolate milkshake.

Chocolate Milkshake

  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
  • 1/4 frozen banana
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla flavor
  • 5 ice cubes
  • 1 packet of stevia (optional…I didn’t use it but if you like super sweet stuff you might want it)

Put all ingredients in a blender. OMG.

In the picture above, I doubled the protein powder, added a 1/2 cup of almond milk, and a little extra cocoa.  This shake is pretty  rich, so play with the ingredients when you make it.  You really can’t mess it up.  Enjoy!

Apple Pie Smoothie

Two days ago, my blender went kaput.  It started leaking from the connection between the container and the blade.  This is very sad mostly because it is a Kitchenaid blender.  And it is pink.  It matches my mixer.  That said, if ANYONE has and ideas on how to repair this, please let me know.  I want my blender back.  You may remember this dear friend from previous posts.

On a positive note, I bought a Nutribullet.  Maybe I jumped the gun a bit, but I eat a smoothie almost every day.  Not having a blender isn’t an option.  As with all new toys, I obsessed with this thing.  It mixes so smoothly, but the best part is the quick clean up.  You blend in the cup from which you drink, so that’s one less cup to wash.  Then, you pretty much just need to rinse it out.  Love.  Here’s what I had for breakfast today:

Apple Pie Smoothie

  • 1 medium apple (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla flavor
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup water

Put ingredients in the blender or bullet and go.  This was a very filling and tasty breakfast.
