Our studio, The Dailey Method Willow Glen, began a 30-day workout and clean eating challenge this weekend. Here is my contribution to starting the morning with a delicious, creamy protein smoothie after a 6am workout!
Chocolate Protein Smoothie
1 1/2 cups almond milk (I used a homemade batch sweetened with dates)
1 scoop protein powder (I use Sunwarrior Raw Vegan Protein Powder, Vanilla)
2 tsp raw cacao powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Optional: handful of raw spinach leaves for extra calcium, four ice cubes
Combine all ingredients in a high speed blender. Enjoy!
