Heyoooo. So 2015. Feeling good so far? Are you all rested up and ready with your list of things to conquer this year?
If you’re anything like me, you lose sight of many of your year-long goals by February. Knowing I do this, I scrapped resolutions this year. Threw ’em out the window. Buh-bye. Instead, I’m focusing on quarterly goals. Three months at a time seems more manageable and still enough time to create a new habit or complete a project.
Since one of the most common New Year’s resolutions/goals people make is about eating better, I thought I’d share a healthy smoothie. When I need a chocolate fix but want to stay in the healthy eating groove, this is what I make. It’s naturally sweetened with honey and it has protein powder in it so it would also be a great treat after a workout. The texture is similar to that of a frappuccino.
Healthy Chocolate Smoothie
- 3 T. good quality vanilla protein powder
- 2 1/2 T. cocoa powder
- 1 T. honey
- 3/4 c. almond milk (use any milk you like)
- handful of ice
- pinch of instant coffee, optional
In a blender, combine all of the ingredients and blend until there are no longer large ice pieces and the consistency is what you want.
