This is our go-to vegan recipe to satisfy that sweet tooth while helping us stay on track with our fitness goals. Featuring the Sacred Glow Co. vegan chocolate-flavored protein powder, this smoothie bowl is packed with muscle-building nutrients like protein, fiber, and healthy fats, while still delivering the rich, chocolatey flavor you crave.
To start, gather your ingredients:
- 1 scoop vegan chocolate-flavored protein powder (try this one!)
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tbsp almond butter
- 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- Toppings of your choice (we suggest fresh berries, chopped nuts, coconut flakes and maybe a dollop of nut butter)
Once you've got everything you need, it's time to get blending. Start by adding the frozen banana to your blender, followed by the almond milk, almond butter, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and finally the protein powder.
Blend everything together until smooth and creamy, then pour your smoothie into a bowl. Now it's time for the fun part: adding your toppings!
We suggest starting with a handful of fresh berries, like sliced strawberries or raspberries, for a burst of fruity flavor. Next, sprinkle on some chopped nuts (we love almonds or hazelnuts for their rich, nutty taste), and finish things off with a sprinkle of coconut flakes for a little tropical flair.
Not only is this chocolate protein smoothie bowl delicious and satisfying, but it's also packed with the nutrients your body needs to build and repair muscle after a workout. And because it's vegan, it's also a great option for anyone looking to eat more plant-based foods and reduce their environmental impact.
