Recipe: Double Chocolate Chunk Protein Shake

protein-shake-recipe-blog

As a little kid, my mom would hide pureed greens, carrots, and zucchini in our pasta sauce to ensure we were getting our servings of vegetables. I find it peculiar because I do the same exact thing today, but with my smoothies! I’ll throw in anything from dark leafy greens to pureed veggies to nuts and seeds, just so that I can reap the benefits of the earth’s most nutritious super foods, but still get that yummy, sweet, smoothie flavor.

The recipe I’m sharing today features pureed beets and you’d never even know it was in the recipe! I like to buy my beets already steamed and vacuum-sealed, so that I can easily puree them without the hassle of peeling and steaming. To puree your steamed beets, all you have to do is place them in a magic bullet, blender, or food processor with about a tablespoon or so of water, and puree away! Place in a tupperware and store in your refrigerator for a couple of days.

So, grab your blender and chocolate protein powder because we’re making a smoothie you and your family are going to love!
