Sometimes you need a seriously thick, creamy and indulgent treat to kick those pesky cravings. And this chocolate almond protein smoothie ticks all these boxes. However, unlike your usual creamy milkshake, its packed with protein, healthy fats and no added sugar!
Now there are a couple of ingredients that you may be thinking ‘WHAT? you crazy?’
The first being liquid egg whites, these are a great source of natural protein and completely disappear into the shake with no eggy tastes at all – I suggest you use pasteurised liquid whites like these ones by Two Chicks which I get from here.
The second being avocado. I can see you screwing up your face, trust me when I say this adds nothing more than a creamy flavour and delicious thickness. Try it and see!
Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 10 mins
40g egg whites (I use Two Chicks liquid egg whites)
30g chocolate whey protein
250ml almond milk
1/2 ripe avocado
1 teaspoon no added sugar cocoa
3 or 4 ice cubes
1There is nothing more to this simple recipe then throwing all of the above in a blender and blending for 40 – 60 seconds on full power. Pour it into a glass and for an extra indulgent treat top with some grated dark chocolate.
