Time for a detour from my usual garden photos in order to highlight modern day nutrition.  My chocolate smoothie recipe is on the menu, and I typically enjoy it once per day usually in the morning.  However, smoothies are the perfect meal for any time of the day.  I use a Blendtec blender, which performs very well.  Since taste and desired consistency vary, it's best to experiment with the amount of water and ice to achieve the desired outcome.  If after the initial blend, your smoothie isn't the right consistency, add what you need and give it another quick blend.

I really enjoy this smoothie with the chocolate protein powder for flavoring and protein as well as the additional whole food ingredients to raise its nutritional and protein value.  Pictured are some brands I use, but there are many good brands out there, so experiment until you find your favorite brands.  Let's get to it:

  • 1 cup of water
  • handful of ice cubes
  • 1 scoop Muscle Milk Natural Chocolate
  • 1/2 banana
  • heaping tbsp of greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp of flax seed meal
  • 1 tsp of chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp of maca powder
