Chocolate Chunky Monkey Smoothie Bowl

Guilt-free Spooning Coming Up!

Looking for a way to get your Valentine’s Day (or any day) chocolate fix without the sugar? Fix your cravings and your muscle. This bowl is a meal high in fat, protein, and fiber that will keep you full for hours. Time it about 60-90 minutes after a workout and you’re boosting your muscle protein synthesis!

Combine chocolate and nut butter? Yes, please!

Ingredients:

  • ½ frozen banana
  • Chocolate or Vanilla protein powder
  • 1-2 T cacao powder
  • 3 T Hemp hearts
  • Fiber Boost
  • 1 handful spinach
  • Unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 T nut or seed butter (I love sunbutter!)
  • Grain-free granola (see flippingfifty.com/resources)

Instructions:

Blend all ingredients except the nut butter and grain-free granola. Add the almond milk sparingly just to blend to desired thickness. Pour or spoon into a bowl. Top with the dollop of nut butter and a sprinkle grain-free granola on top. Start spooning with this new love.

Know Your Protein

A hydrolized protein is easy to absorb. That makes it awesome pre-workout if you keep it “simple.” That’s when you want just liquid, protein, and maybe a half cup of fruit. Skip the fat and fiber because for an intense workout you want that gut to empty. Blood (and oxygen) shouldn’t compete with digestion and supporting muscle.

Awesome for post-workout: Adding fat and fiber to a high protein smoothie increases your satiety for hours. I like to hit 15 grams of fiber in a smoothie- or any high protein meal. The Fiber Boost helps me do it easily. I have come clients use it between meals with a glass of water if they’re trying to fast and can’t seem to do it.

Choose protein shakes with a handful of ingredients, all pronounceable. I leave out the extra added vitamins and minerals because I don’t want them to compete with the micronutrients I’m taking for supplements, and I’m adding real food to my bowls. Real greens, veggies, fruit, nuts and seeds are the best choice. Fresh or frozen, real beats powdered.
