Recipe: Hazelnut ‘Brocha’ Protein Shake

Go ahead and ask any bro – it’s hard to find a nutritious smoothie that tastes good, and also has that extra dose of manliness.

Most homemade protein smoothies can tally up the carbs quickly once you add the strawberries, banana, half a cup of mango, and all the other ingredients. Then, before you know it, your smoothie is overloaded with carbs – which is okay if you need them for recovery, but if you’re looking for just the protein, we have the perfect shake for you!

I present the Hazelnut Brocha! A rich, chocolaty shake of deliciousness with only 5g of fat, 10g of carbs, and 51g of protein! Be a man and enjoy!
