Chocolate Cherry Protein Shake

I was unable to get a clear image for some reason, so sorry for the blur!

I debated whether I should even put up a photo of this smoothie. Other than showing off my 3D sea turtle cup (which you can’t even tell on a photo), there’s really no point. All my smoothies with Spinach in them look the same! A muddy looking brown color =)

 Original recipe from Nature’s Bounty*

Ingredients

  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1/4 cup tart cherry juice
  • 3/4 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 cup frozen cherries
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 cup ice cubes

I LOVE the flavor of cherry and I LOVE chocolate, so this smoothie called to me! It was super delicious, too!

*I’m not sure why the Nature’s Bounty recipe uses 2 scoops protein, it may be that their protein powder is less calories/protein per scoop? I’ve never used it so I’m not sure, but my smoothie was fine w/ 1 scoop.

    • It’s true, this one is pretty high…but there’s no added sugar if you use unsweetened almond milk instead of regular milk (which is what I’ve changed to!)
