A protein shake – or smoothies as some people like to call them – can be as basic or as complicated as you want. We like to be adventurous here and find recipes that are, well, maybe not the first thing you would think of.
Many people, most in fact, spice up their basic protein shake. Most shakes come in multiple flavors: vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, etc. But that can get boring. So take some time to make it more interesting. We will have more recipes coming soon.
Today’s Protein Shake Recipe: Chocolate-Orange Shake
Today’s recipe is the Chocolate-Orange Protein Shake. Because you might not think of these two tastes going together – chocolate and citrus – this is a more adventurous concoction. However it is definitely worth a try. (At least once, right?)
Maybe it is because the recipe for this protein shake includes Mandarin oranges instead of the more tart regular orange, the tastes work together well. As with the Pomegranate-Berry Shake, the fruit is going to add some natural sugar to your protein shake, but again the key word here is “natural“. Here it is:
Directions: Shakes taste best cold. Blend all ingredients together with ice in a blender until creamy.
2 scoops chocolate shake mix
2 mandarin oranges (peeled)
1/3 cup low-fat coconut milk
8 oz. cold water
