Chocolate Nut Butter Protein Shake

This is my go to recipe for my morning protein shake. If you like chocolate and peanut butter (or an alternative nut butter) you are gonna love this one.

1 Serving

Blend:

 ¼ - ½ frozen banana
3 - 4 ice cubes

1/2  cup natural coconut water 
1/2 cup almond milk or another favourite milk
1/2 cup water

2 tb 100% organic peanut butter (choose organic because of the high pesticide content of regular peanuts) or another preferred nut butter
2 tsp ground flax and/or chia seed

When the ingredients above are completely blended, add:

1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder*
1 tsp. glutamine (optional)

 Blend for the minimum time needed to mix the powder in. Blending too much will destroy the integrity of the protein.

Pour into a glass and enjoy.
