Okay, before I dive into the recipe for this dreamy post work out smoothie, let me just take a sec to rave about my new obsession with Ripple Pea Milk! And yes you heard me right!
I love trying different dairy-free milk and so naturally I was stoked to see that a new option had made an appearance on my grocery store shelves out here in good ol’ west Texas. My usual favorites are coconut and cashew milk, and while nothing will ever replace these two in my heart, they do have their shortcomings. Coconut milk is my go-to creamer for coffee and tea and I sure do love it in my cereal but it doesn’t make a good smoothie base because it tends to get pretty thick if it’s allowed to sit. Cashew milk, on the other hand, is usually my go-to smoothie base but, like most other dairy-free milk has a pretty low protein content.
Pea milk is high in protein and makes a perfect smoothie base! It also tastes SO good! In fact the chocolate milk version (the one I used for this smoothie) is literally to die for! I usually try to force feed my “weird” food (his words not mine!) to my boyfriend (he’s pretty much that small child that you hate babysitting because he refuses to eat anything but mac and cheese and pieces of hot dog) but this milk is something I will not be sharing!
Choconut post workout smoothie!
Let’s get to the good stuff!
- 1 cup chocolate Ripple pea milk
- 1 banana
- 1/2 frozen banana (I always add some type of frozen fruit to my smoothies vs ice for that cold creamy texture, more frozen banana = a thicker smoothie)
- a handful of walnuts
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (yes the weird kind where the oil separates)
BLEND AND ENJOY!
