Post-Workout Chocolate Dream Smoothie

Recently, I haven’t been indulging in protein as much as I should after a workout. Sometimes, I’ll eat peanut butter, while other times I forget and wait a couple of hours to eat. However, I’ve been encouraged to drink protein smoothies more often, so today I finally gave in. Right after my workout, I walked straight to the kitchen to whip up my smoothie. I grabbed random ingredients, threw them together, and voila! It turned out more like ice cream goodness, right up my alley. Ready for the best dessert-like smoothie ever?

1 frozen banana
1 scoop chocolate Perfect Fit Protein
2 scoops ice (8-10 cubes)
Filtered water (I used about 1/4 cup)
1 tsp cacao nibs (for topping)


Blend all ingredients and top with cacao nibs. Enjoy it for a sweet post-workout treat or as a healthy dessert!
