Natural Chocolate and Mint Protein Shake

This natural chocolate protein shake is my new favourite drink with, or instead of breakfast when I'm in a rush. Packed with natural protein with the rice protein powder and Greek yoghurt, this will keep you and your family, full until lunchtime.

This natural chocolate protein shake is my new favourite drink with, or instead of breakfast when I'm in a rush.

Packed with natural protein with the rice protein powder and Greek yoghurt, this will keep you and your family, full until lunchtime.

Ingredients:

2 small frozen ripe bananas, previously peeled & sliced

120ml coconut milk/ almond milk or regular milk

180g Greek yogurt (use coconut cream if you prefer)

1 tsp honey (I like manuka)

a sprinkle of cinammon

2 tbsp brown rice protein powder with raw cocoa or a natural whey powder

1 teaspoon peppermint extract

Dark chocolate (70% or higher) and some white chocolate if you like, and fresh mint leaves for garnish

Method:

Add all of the ingredients to the blender and blitz until it is smooth and creamy (approx 3 minutes).

Taste and add more cocoa protein powder for a chocolate-ier taste and more milk if you prefer it not as thick. I personally love thick, creamy shakes.

I decorated the glass with Greek yoghurt using a fork in a flicking motion, for the pretty effect you see here before pouring in the shake. I snapped chocolate pieces and a mint leave to decorate the top.

Delicious!
