A smoothie is a quintessential meal-on-the-go when you’re running out the door in the morning, need some nourishment after a tough workout or just want a healthy late-afternoon treat. The great thing about smoothies is that they are completely customizable and cater to anyone’s taste! I love creating my own unique concoctions in the Edible Epiphanies kitchen, but what I enjoy even more is having my Edible followers share their fabulous recipes!
Edible fan, Caitlin, recently shared this nutty, protein-packed creation with me and I just had to spread the word. It is incredibly easy to make, provides a sweet balance of nuttiness, with a crunch of inflammation-reducing seeds, and is sweet enough to satisfy even the biggest chocolate craving! See the recipe below and have fun making this one at home:
- 1 scoop Quest Peanut Butter Protein Powder
- 1 Frozen Banana
- 1/2 cup Ice
- 1 cup Almond Milk
- 1 tbsp. Chia seeds
- 1 tbsp. Ground Flax Seed
- Optional: 1 tbsp. Almond Butter
Put all ingredients into a blender and blend on medium speed until smooth. Pour into your favorite mug, glass, mason jar or bottle, and enjoy!
