Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie

Sometimes a random experiment just works.

Throughout my workout this morning (BodyPump + 25 minutes on the elliptical), I was daydreaming about a creamy, cold smoothie for breakfast.

After leaving the gym and taking a quick shower, I headed downstairs to the kitchen to get crackin’. I opened the freezer and *gasp* no frozen bananas were to be found! 🙁

Instant sadness set in, but I was determined to get a little creative and still make a stellar smoothie.

I had a bunch of frozen strawberries on hand, and decided to use the berries as the smoothie’s base, rather than a banana like I typically would.

Into the blender went:

  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 large scoop All the Whey chocolate protein powder
  • ¾ c. almond milk
  • ½ tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 6 ice cubes

The result was a chocolate covered strawberry smoothie!

I figured the chocolate flavors in the protein and cocoa powders would overwhelm the strawberries, but the fruity flavor held its own.

It didn’t seem like my blender was all that full until I started blending and the smoothie seemed to grow.

I filled up a very large cup and had a couple of spoonfuls leftover in the blender, which I enjoyed with a spoon.

With or without bananas, smoothies are the jam.

    My favorite classic smoothie:

    150 grams frozen strawberries
    20 grams frozen blueberries
    1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
    60 grams Stonyfield French Vanilla Low-Fat Yogurt
    3/4 skim milk

    Approx. 260 calories & 30 grams of protein!

    Blend and enjoy!!

    I prefer to always have a banana in mine – though I never use frozen banana as I like my smoothies room temperature… though if I am making more of an “ice cream” treat, or a frosty (spoon-able smoothie) then I use some frozen items… I do have a problem with frozen bananas tasting a bit bitter though – any ideas why?
