I have two smoothies in rotation at the moment. I'll be posting the other one soon but my favorite one is this chilly chocolate cherry goodness. I recently started having a shake before I work out and I can't believe how much better I preform. Seriously, in kickboxing class I have so much more energy and am able to finish all my reps. So much better than before, when I exercised on an empty stomach. I like that the smoothie is quick to make, quick to consume, tastes good and is full of protein.
Makes one serving.
Chocolate Cherry Protein Shake
1/2 cup frozen pitted cherries
handful baby spinach leaves
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
1 cup liquid (coconut milk, coconut water or tap water)
Blend all ingredients together until smooth.
