I keep getting sucked into pinterest and seeing all these beautifully heartbreaking quotes over instagrammed photos that make me want to curl up and cry. And maybe buy a few cats and get cosy with Netflix.
I refuse to give in.
I’m allergic to cats and I’m more than halfway through this ridiculous Whole Life Challenge and I can’t watch a television screen for longer than seven minutes before I think of eighteen other things I could be doing right that second.
So let’s battle this.
Starting with a chocolate peanut butter smoothie, because since the Whole Life Challenge started I eat peanut butter with everything, and, well… if I can’t have cats and Netflix, I should at least get chocolate.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
one and a quarter cups unsweetened chocolate almond milk (I like Almond Breeze)
one scoop chocolate protein powder (I use a whey-based protein because they taste better, but Vega makes good vegan ones)
one tablespoon cocoa powder
a huge spoonful of natural peanut butter
half a banana (frozen is better, if you’re planning ahead)
optional: a couple ice cubes (if the banana isn’t frozen)
Throw everything in a blender. Easy!
