Chocolate, coconut, and almond in an easy smoothie! This healthy almond joy protein shake is fantastic for portable energy.
I usually make shakes in my blender. But sometimes there's not even much time to do that! That's where the new Thermos® #ShakerBottle comes in quite handy. The 24-ounce bottle is leak-proof, BPA-free, and has an integrated mixer—kind of a whisk—that helps blend your ingredients and ensures you don't get clumps of protein powder in your shake. Thermos® is having a giveaway for these cool bottles: go here to enter!
- 1/2 cup chocolate almond milk
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1 Tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1 Tablespoon almond butter (or almond flour)
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- ice (optional)
- coconut, sliced almonds, chocolate for garnish (optional)
Add the shredded coconut and almond butter. Then add the protein powder. (When you are adding all of the ingredients to the shaker bottle, be sure to add the protein powder last. This ensures that the integrated mixer will blend it all in smoothly.) Place the integrated mixer in the shaker bottle and screw on the bottle top. Shake for about 30 seconds, or until the ingredients are blended together. Add crushed ice, if you'd like. Drink up!
If you prefer to make this smoothie in your blender, try blending it with about a cup of ice, until frothy. Cool and creamy!
Then just pour it into your Thermos® #ShakerBottle and take it with you: the bottle is perfectly portable, with a locking, push-button lid to protect it from spilling. The shaker bottle is also super easy to take apart and clean in the dishwasher. I love that there is no impossible-to-effectively-clean straw. And the bottle fits into my car's cup-holder!
