Sweet Chocolate Mint Protein Shake Recipe


Sweet Chocolate Mint Protein Shake Recipe

I've talked in the past about how I do better when I up my protein a little. It seems like my workouts and recovery go more smoothly and I just overall feel better. Upping my protein (and fat) and lowering my carbs also seems to help me feel more satisfied and keep my blood sugar stable, which of course helps in the long run with weight loss.

Yet, somehow, I always wind up back at not eating enough protein. I'm finding that I really have to be mindful about it. So, I'm refocusing on upping my protein a bit and for me that means whey protein. In a shaker cup. In protein smoothies. In protein shakes. All the whey protein! It's just a quick and easy way I can add more protein to my diet with my already busy day. Plus, it's pretty tasty if you make it right!

People ask me a lot which whey protein is best. Wild Foods recently sent me some of their products to try out and I'm pretty smitten with their Wild Whey. It's super clean and I really love the taste. The Creamy Vanilla is probably my all-time favorite whey protein flavor. It's super yummy. Ingredients are extremely important to me in a protein powder, but I have to like the taste too! Who wants to choke down their protein shakes? No whey (you know I had to...). Unfortunately, I have found that often it's a trade off. You either get good clean ingredients or good taste. Well, Wild Whey just may be the unicorn of protein powders because it has both!


Sweet Chocolate Mint Protein Smoothie

This Sweet Chocolate Mint Protein Smoothie Recipe is a new protein shake combo I'm loving a lot lately. It's not only yummy, but it's also low in sugar, calories, and carbs! (Totals don't include optional whip pictured). I love it post-workout, but it also makes an amazing dessert swap. This clean recipe has 193 calories, 7 grams carbs, and 30 grams protein. It makes 1 extra large smoothie or 2 medium smoothies (size shown here).
