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.

INGREDIENTS

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)



DIRECTIONS

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!
