power-up protein smoothie

This smoothie is ridiculously good!

power-up protein smoothie

It pretty much tastes like a reese’s peanut butter cup in a glass, but it’s loaded with protein and nutrition boosting superfoods!  The combination of omega 3 fatty acids, complex carbs and a whopping 36 grams of protein make this smoothie a great post-exercise “mini-meal.”  If using pure cacao, you will get a natural jolt of energy too!
