Chocolate Almond Butter Crunch Fab 4 Smoothie




image_blog

This is for all of the chocolate lovers out there. Not only is this smoothie decadent from the cacao nibs but it gives you the perfect crunch to satisfy your sweet tooth. Trust me, it’ll be one the whole family will enjoy!

I try to keep my pantry and freezer stocked with smoothie essentials to fit my family’s cravings - from things like cacao nibs to a variety of protein powders, I like to be prepared. What I always recommend to my clients is to have protein powders with flavors they truly enjoy, which is why I suggest keeping a vanilla and chocolate protein on hand as they will influence your smoothie flavor but you can make so many different varieties with just these two base flavors. I personally keep my pantry stocked with my grass-fed, minimal ingredient Be Well protein powder in vanilla, chocolate and unflavored. Unflavored is great if I want the flavor profile to come from the vegetables or fruits alone. Adding toppings is another way to make your smoothie routine more fun, interesting, and crave-worthy so have your favorite toppings on hand as well! To make this smoothie a little extra crunchy, top with an extra teaspoon of nibs!

The easiest way I’ve found to keep the pantry stocked is by using subscription grocery services. My favorite go-to’s are Thrive Market and Amazon and I keep the most heavily used ingredients on auto-ship so I never run out.
