LeanShake Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie
LeanShake Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie is our go-to drink. It’s delicious, easy to prepare, and satisfies those hunger pangs. Like when it’s the weekend and you’re happily lazy, still in PJs at 11.00am. It’s not quite lunch but your stomach sure thinks it is.
You want something yummy and nutritious, that’ll get you through until you’ve done the food shop. Pull out the blender, a chopping board, and make sure you have these ingredients:
- 1 sachet Zinzino LeanShake Chocolate
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 cup fresh strawberries and raspberries
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp coconut oil
- 1 cup ice
- 1 tbsp rice malt syrup, if you want a little extra something-something.
Strawberries and chocolate go together like avocado and toast. But this pairing isn’t like those sugary chocolate-coated strawberries you find at events. This is actually healthy, and not at the cost of your tastebuds.
Place all these ingredients in a blender, blitz it, then pour the drink into a tall glass with a straw. We won’t blame you if you ditch the PJ’s for your summer get-up, after this uplifting berry bonanza.
The health benefits!
Taste aside, this smoothie is bursting with antioxidants and vitamins that help kickstart your day. The coconut oil increases nutrient absorption, helping these goodies process into your body faster. Berries are among the healthiest foods imaginable, high in fibre, improving blood sugar levels and good for your skin.
And bananas? They’re rich in potassium, fibre and folate. This satisfying fruit helps support blood pressure and also supports heart health.
Now, over to the chocolate. This part will debunk any assumptions you have that ‘chocolate is bad.’ Nope, not the REAL kind. Cocoa is rich in polyphenols for better brain function. It can also help support blood pressure and stabilise mood. A big leap from a block of milk chocolate, isn’t it?
And of course, the LeanShake Chocolate Protein Powder. Drink up 25 vitamins and minerals, gut-loving fibre and protein to keep you full for hours. This is unlike any other meal replacement you’ve had before. It sure doesn’t taste like one.
Have it for breakfast, in between meals or anytime you want to show your kids how good healthy eating can taste. It’s probably the only time when eating chocolate in the morning is appropriate.
Forget the cherry; it’s the strawberry on top of your morning with your LeanShake Chocolate protein hit!
