A healthy way to satisfy your craving for chocolate covered strawberries!
How many chocolate covered strawberries do you think you could eat? 2? 10? 50? We could definitely eat a lot. Of course, devouring chocolate covered strawberries may not be the healthiest idea. So, in order to curb our need for chocolate covered strawberries, we decided to create a healthy way to enjoy that great taste. This chocolate covered strawberry protein shake is it!
The strawberry flavor for the shake comes right from real strawberries. We like to use frozen strawberries and banana in this recipe to make the shake nice and thick. It also helps keep it cool which is needed if you are having this drink after a hard workout or on a hot day.
To get the rich, chocolate flavor for the protein shake, we use both chocolate protein powder and also unsweetened cocoa powder. Chocolate protein powder usually tastes pretty darn good but a little extra chocolate never hurts!
Speaking of extras, we also add some ground flaxseeds to give the smoothie a little extra protein. Between the protein powder, the flaxseeds, the milk and the yogurt, this shake is sure loaded with healthy protein. So drink up! Enjoy the chocolate strawberry taste in a healthy, nutritious way.
