Enjoying Life one RUN at a Time

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Protein Smoothie 

Creamy, cold, and refreshing this smoothie tastes just like a chocolate covered strawberry. It tastes so good, that you’ll never guess that it’s packed with protein and even (sh!) hidden veggies. Enjoy as a mid-day snack or as a protein packed breakfast beverage. 

You all know how much I love smoothies. After a summer run or a hard workout, smoothies always hit the spot. One of my favorite smoothies is my Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie. A couple days ago, I decided to leave out the peanut butter and throw in a couple strawberries.

After taking a sip, I was excited to find that it tasted just like a chocolate covered strawberry. 

I hope you all enjoy this shake as much as I do!
