Chocolate Cherry Protein Smoothie

U

sually most of the protein powders you buy taste artificial, don’t you agree? Thus, I prefer to flavour my protein shakes myself.

One of my favourite is, of course, Chocolate Cherry Protein Smoothie.

The combination of rich and earthy organic cocoa and sweet and juicy cherries is a win-win.

Oh, and don’t forget to do your research on the protein powders. Make sure there are no nasty additives.

I use Pumpkin Seed Protein Powder – natural organic and full of pumpkin goodness!

    What a great flavour combination! Do you recon I can maki it in advance and keep in fridge or do I have to make fresh one every time? I mean as a post workout shake?

    • Hi Nick! I know, with a busy lifestyle we all trying to save time somehow, but in this case I would suggest to make fresh smoothies every time. Fresh fruits and berries (cherries in this case) will loose their nutritious qualities and antioxidants if you keep the smoothie for more then an hour. Plus it is not going to taste as good as freshly made one.
