I recently got to check out Degustabox, a surprise subscription food box company based in Barcelona. They're already going strong in Spain, Italy, France, Germany, and the UK—and they've just launched in the United States. I feel so lucky that I was selected to receive my very own box of goodies!
I was excited to find a fun variety of yummy foods inside my Degustabox. It ranged from healthy staples and snacks (like Vita Coco Coconut Oil and Orchard Valley nuts) to treats (Haribo gummies and Wise Popcorn) to items I'd never even heard of before (Topo Chico mineral water!). What a great box to receive!
I decided that the Jif Cinnamon Peanut Butter and the Elmhurst Harvest Chocolate Almond Milk would be absolutely perfect for a post-workout smoothie. Combined with a frozen banana, these ingredients would create a delicious, rich, healthy drink. And it takes just a few minutes to throw together!
- 3/4 cup Elmhurst Harvest chocolate almond milk
- 1 frozen banana
- 2 Tablespoons Jif Cinnamon Peanut Butter
- pinch of cinnamon
- handful of ice cubes
- 1 scoop of your favorite chocolate protein powder (optional; I used Kura, which I love but it's not dairy-free for those of you looking for a vegan smoothie)
Add all ingredients to high-speed blender. Blend until smooth, thick, and frothy.
This smoothie is packed with protein and potassium—perfect for after a workout! I had it when I got home from an eight-mile hike; the smoothie was delicious, filling, and refreshing.
