{Day 7} Chocolate Protein Smoothie

{Day 7}

New here? Make sure to check out day 1  and my introduction to my
31 day of Health and Exercise series for the month of October
Thank you for reading and coming along with journey with me
I hope to inspire and motivate you through this series 

Today I am going to be sharing with you a healthy smoothie recipe 
It is important to keep our bodies fueled before and after workouts
This is a great one to enjoy after a workout packed full of protein 
to help you build those muscles you are working so hard for 

I love smoothies 
They are my favorite thing to have for breakfast
I have an egg and a smoothie 
so I am always on the look out for a good one
with lots of protein in it
I found this Peanut butter Smoothie HERE

Vanilla Greek Yogurt- 6 oz container
Banana- 1/2 frozen
(just cut a banana into slices put in a zip lock
baggie and Freeze
the take out and put in blender frozen)
Peanut butter- 2 TBSP
Skim Milk- 1 cup
(you can also use Almond milk
but I used skim because it was the same
amount of calories but more protein)

Blend them all together 
and viola 

Greek Yogurt- 160 Cal   17g Protein
1/2 banana- 45 Cal   1g Protein
Peanut Butter- 180 Cal   7g Protein
Skim Milk- 90 Cal   8g Protein

Total- 475 Cal   33g Protein
But this makes 2 glasses 
I drink one glass
and save the other in the fridge
or hubby has it

so for one glass 
(and it is super filling so you only need one glass)
 Total- 238 Cal   17g protein

 This is yummy for breakfast, a snack or a dessert
I challenge you to make this 
You will love it
