Low Sugar Chocolate Protein Smoothie
August 18, 2016
Although they tend to exist under a bit of a health halo, commercially produced smoothies are typically packed with sugar. Which is a problem if you’re trying to use them as a healthy snack or meal replacement.
Making the situation worse, some companies will then go the opposite direction and use artificial sweeteners – a decision that has its own set of unfavorable consequences.
The solution? Make your own! To give you some ideas, here is a simple recipe for a low sugar protein shake, using own of Naked Nutrition’s Chocolate protein powders. Whether you opt for the whey, casein, pea, or egg variety, all of the powders are sweetened using just enough organic coconut sugar – a natural, low glycemic index sweetener that won’t wreak havoc on your blood sugar levels.
- 2 scoops Naked Nutrition Chocolate protein powder
- ½ cup milk (of choice)
- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
- Ice, as needed
Place all of the ingredients in your blender and combine until the desire consistency is reached. Use the ice to add thickness as needed.
