Who doesn’t love chocolate and strawberries? They are the perfect combination for a nutritious treat! I love making a healthy version of a strawberry chocolate protein smoothie. It’s perfect as a meal, snack, or a sweet treat! In our smoothie we will be using the doTERRA Chocolate Whey Protein.
Due to our changing environment and modern diets we aren’t consuming enough essential nutrients for our bodies to function optimally. Protein is a crucial micronutrient that our bodies need for energy. It also supports healthy weight management and helps the body build muscle and recover.
Let’s break down the Strawberry Chocolate Protein Smoothie:
Doterra Whey Protein
The doTERRA Whey Protein contains 21 grams of a premium blend of protein that is easy to digest. Each serving also provides 7 grams of fiber that supports digestive health. The doTERRA Whey Protein is sweetened with monk fruit and stevia. All the ingredients are ethically sourced with the highest of quality and it’s also available in vanilla and vegan.
Strawberries are full of anti-inflammatory antioxidants and are great at fighting free radicals in the body! Antioxidants are crucial for supporting detoxification pathways. Strawberries are also a high fiber fruit that supports the digestive system! Strawberries contain folate and manganese; both essential vitamins and minerals for the body!
Bananas are full of potassium, fiber, and magnesium! All are essential nutrients for our bodies! Bananas are great for pre and post workout as they give you energy and support muscle and tissue repair. Bananas are also great for your digestive help as they help rid your body of waste! Did you know bananas are also good for your mental health?
We only use plant-based milk in our home for all the health benefits. It has a high amount of calcium, vitamin D, and magnesium. Almond milk is full of vitamin E that also fights free radicals.
