Chocolate Mango Protein Smoothie

Posted: February 13, 2011 in Recipes

Heaven in a glass…

I like to begin my day with a fresh, healthy and yummy smoothie and I have acquired a number of recipes that I draw on regularly.  Today was a bit of an experiment, but it definitely paid off in dividends.  Not only is it high in protein, fat, carbohydrates, calcium, potassium, iron, dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals, but it’s relatively low in overall calories – not to mention having a one kick ass chocolate shake taste.  This is something you could purchase in any Ice Cream Parlor come summertime and not feel ripped off.  Just blend all the ingredients together and, SHAZAM!, instant triathlete fuel.

  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 ripe mango
  • 1/2 tsp ground flax seed
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 2 TBS whey protein isolate
  • 2 cups chocolate almond milk (or skim milk)
  1. delicious…. I’m sipping a chocolate smoothie right now!
