I have been getting a lot of requests for smoothies lately, and decided to make this Chocolate, Banana and Almond Butter Smoothie. As you may know I am not a huge fan of powdered protein. It just doesn’t seem all natural to me, I would rather use ingredients that naturally have high protein like Almond Butter and Almond Milk. Both these ingredients also boost metabolism, score!
I’m sure there is a protein powder out there with no chemicals, preservatives or fake sweeteners but what works for me is all natural ingredients, period!
Before you make this Chocolate, Banana and Almond Butter Smoothie, peel and cut a banana into three pieces. Place in a Ziploc bag and place in the freezer for a few hours. While you do that, whip up a batch of my Fat Free Chocolate Syrup. It only takes 10 minutes and it has no chemicals, preservatives or chemical derived thickening agents (Hershey’s has all this).
