Mint Chocolate Espresso Smoothie

MINT CHOC SMOOTHIE

Mint Coffee Chocolate Smoothie…need I say more?

This smoothie is a delicious treat that will satisfy your sweet cravings AND keep your blood sugar levels in line. Again…need I say more? Enjoy this smoothie for breakfast or post workout!

Why i  this smoothie:

GLUTEN FREE 

Bananas → Using only ½ a banana, you’ll get more than 200 milligrams of potassium. Potassium is essential for nerve & muscle function (which is especially important for athletes).

Raspberries Full of phytonutrients, raspberries provide our bodies with antioxidants that support our immune system and prevent disease (among other great things!)

Chocolate Protein Powder I have been using Genuine Health- Proteins+ Natural Chocolate Protein Powder. A single scoop has 25 grams of protein. Protein is necessary to build and repair muscles & tissues.

Peppermint Extract Peppermint is cooling & soothing which encourages stress relief.
