HEALTHY PROTEIN SHAKE FOR KIDS
We are all in a time bind. We are being rushed out the door — and yet you and your toddler still need to be fed. My go-to answer is the BANANA CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER SMOOTHIE! (or better yet, BANANA CHOCOLATE ALMOND BUTTER SMOOTHIE!) There’s nothing easier than whipping up a healthy protein shake for kids.
1 scoop Sun Warrior vegan brown rice protein – I like Classic VANILLA.
1 frozen banana (broken in half) (Make sure it’s frozen as this is what gives the smoothie its creamy and decadent texture.)
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or better yet, make your own!). (For extra yumminess, I fill a cup with frozen almond milk ice cubes. Then I fill the remaining space in the cup with liquid almond milk.)
1/2 cup spinach or kale (or however much is desired)
1 T organic raw cacao powder
1-2 dates (no pits)
1-2 T of almond butter / peanut butter (I use Barney Butter almond butter.)
1-2 teaspoons chia or flax seeds (optional)
couple drops stevia (optional)
1 Tbsp sweetened cacao nibs (optional)
Blend all the ingredients (except for cacao nibs) in a Vitamix or high speed blender until smooth and creamy.
Top with cacao nibs.
Yum! Stick it in a to-go cup and get to work / school! Easy Peazy! Hope you enjoyed my recipe for a healthy protein shake for kids!
