Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie…a chocolate lover’s dream. Sweet, creamy, high protein, no added sugar, and made with only 3 ingredients!
I know, I’m smoothie and shake crazy. But they are just so good and simple. I love whipping up a smoothie for breakfast or snack or dessert for that matter. In fact, I’m known to make a smoothie for dinner if Eric is out and not coming home for dinner. Less fuss and mess to clean up. I’m simple like that.
With the H.O.T dog days of summer we are experiencing, we all need more smoothies in our life anyway. Last week Eric and I went up to DC for a business trip for him (he took the NFLPA Sports Agent Exam). Wahoo. It’s been a dream of his since college and to see this come to fruition is really exciting. We will find out his results September/October. #proudwife
Anyway, in DC while he was in seminars and taking the exam, me and my baby bump trekked it around the city. We’re talking 9-13 miles a day X 4 days.
I LOVED all the walking… but with this heat and 20 additional pounds around my midsection and the achy feet, I didn’t really know how to dress and not look like a total tourist. This mama MUST wear tennis shoes at this point. #ohpregnancywoes I literally took a minimum of 3 showers a day because I was constantly sweating. Let’s just say, I was happy to come home to the afternoon rain and continuous AC.
Anyone else ready for cooler temps? Hands raised high over here. The only thing is cooler temps for me also means a newborn and a new business for my husband. It’s going to be a CRAZY fall. Go cool off with this Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie.Print
