Who else struggles with breakfast!? I am ALWAYS rushed in the morning, so my go-to breakfast is always a shake. I've come up with some fun, tasty recipes over the years - and so I thought I'd share one of my staples today - this chocolate coconut protein shake - it tastes just like an almond joy.
Start The Day Off Right with this Chocolate Coconut Protein Shake
With all of the processed foods these days I like to start off the day with something that is good for me, so I find a breakfast shake to be just what I need to start my day off right!
Chocolate Coconut Protein Shake - The Run Down
Let me give you the run down. In my blender I throw in
- ice cubes
- ripe organic bananas
- coconut milk
- flake coconut
- almond butter
- a scoop of chocolate protein powder
Give the blender a whirl and fill your cup with a clean almond joy breakfast shake
My Favorite Protein Powders
When it comes to protein powders, I tend to like them on the sweet side. I really like BSN Syntha 6 and Shakeology. The Shakeology is on the pricer side, but includes a ton of good for you ingredients, while the Syntha 6 is a simple protein powder.
Coconut Milk Or Milk Of Your Choice
If you don't have coconut milk on hand, you can substitute another milk like almond or dairy - but I like to have some almond and coconut milk handy for my morning shakes. I really prefer the flavor in shakes over dairy milk.
