Super #Smoothie Sundays, Cocoa Sunflower Bliss: Haute Eats

Cocoa Sunflower Bliss

Cocoa Sunflower Bliss

Sunday is synonymous with resetting for the week ahead, for me that means getting back on track with food and workouts if my meals haven’t been as great all weekend.  Additionally, I have been trying to find new ways to get more protein after a workout, and started experimenting with all kinds of smoothies, some delicious and others not so tasty.  So I thought, why not share some of the wins for those looking to break the normal smoothie routine.  Check out todays potassium and protein packed super smoothie:  Cocoa Sunflower Bliss! (Note:  I make mostly protein smoothies and juice my veggies, but you can always add a bit of kale or spinach to any of my recipes or use a vegan plant-based protein powder like I do.)

 

Cocoa Sunflower Bliss

  • 1/2 banana (potassium to keep you balanced)
  • 1 cup cold almond milk (I usually make mine to avoid added chemicals if I am home, but when I am on the road I keep some store bought stuff on hand)
  • 1 scoop Amazing Meal Chocolate Infusion Protein Powder (I have tried a few and chose this one for now as I buy it in bulk.  Its made with lots of good plant-based proteins, and is vegan, gluten free, and non-GMO.)
  • 1 tsp Dastony sprouted sunflower butter (they stone grind their butters to a silky smoothness – and add nothing else + packed with iron and good fat to keep you fuller)
  • 1 tsp chia seeds (for added hydration and protein post workout – I buy these in bulk in my organic food market)
  • 1 dash cinnamon (optional – adds a kick of flavor and balances sugars)

Blend together in blender of choice (with ice if you want it super cold).  Serve in a glass or drink out of your bullet blender (like I do).  Cheers to a happy, haute and super Sunday!
