Chocolate Power Protein Smoothie

BreakfastSnacks

By: Mariella Irivarren

Vegan & Gluten-Free! 

High plant-based protein smoothies are an excellent way to give your body a health-kick. They are a great option for meal replacement, muscle gain, weight loss, hormonal balance, and so much more! 

For the last two years I have made a delicious chocolate protein smoothie that I LOVE. Since Miski Organics introduced their new Tara Protein Powder however, I wanted to see if I could recreate my favourite go-to smoothie with one that incorporates Tara, and a variety of other superfoods. 

Well… I did it! I was able to recreate this delicious, chocolatey, dessert-like smoothie with all the superfoods and zero guilt! This smoothie tastes like melted chocolate ice cream, seriously. It can be as thick or as runny as you’d like, and more or less chocolatey based on your taste buds. 

Aside from the high amino-acid content crucial for muscle development and strength, tara protein is exceptionally powerful in other ways. It is a great source of tannins and fibre contributing to digestive health, as well as antioxidants which boost metabolic function. For these reasons, tara is often considered an excellent weight management supplement. (source)   

I love making smoothies because they are so simple yet so nutritious and filling. For this recipe I used natural ripe banana powder instead of regular bananas (they always seem to go brown on me), and it also uses sacha inchi powder and sacha inchi butter to give it a nutty flavour, without the nuts! 

This smoothie is loaded with plant-based protein, omegas, healthy fats, fibre, antioxidants, iron, and a variety of other vitamins and minerals… when I say “power protein smoothie” I MEAN IT! It’s a sure-fire way to give your body an energy boost when needed.

*Makes One Individual Serving*

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Place the plant-based milk in a blender (I like to use a small, personal size blender such as the Magic Bullet).
  2. Add all remaining ingredients to the blender
  3. Add 2-3 ice cubes
  4. Blend, Serve and Enjoy!

NOTES:

  • Using Sacha Inchi Choco Butter will make it more chocolatey. If you use regular Sacha Inchi Butter you could try adding a bit extra cacao powder to make it more chocolatey.
  • You can add water or more milk to make the consistency of the smoothie a bit thinner
  • This recipe is 100% Vegan & Gluten Free.

I use the Miski Organics brand because of the quality of the products and flavours I like. You may use other brands and even substitute the superfoods for more commonly found ingredients, but the nutritional content and flavour will vary.
