High Protein Chocolate Green Smoothie {Fruit Free – Low Fructose!)

May 8, 2016 | Breakfast, Drinks, Recipes



I have to say I have been downing this green smoothie like there was some sort of world shortage!


You know I love me some daily green smoothie action (if you don’t  click here to find out why) because:

  • they take like 2 minutes to make
  • they help increase my energy
  • they taste like dessert most of the time
  • they are full of iron, calcium, magnesium, protein, fats and other nourishing goodness
  • they are simple
  • 100% natural – not weird powders or shakes – just good honest food.


I think that is why my Green Smoothie Challenge is so popular as honestly adding one green smoothie to your day is an easy win. I know we are all busy people trying hard to get healthy and we don’t all have time to tend to our organic allotment and do yoga for 2 hours a day!


Plus this is a super high protein smoothie which is a winner. Getting more protein in the morning can be really helpful for healing the adrenals and stabilising the blood sugar.


I often find the more protein I have in the morning the more energy I have in the afternoon. I also go to the gym at the moment 4-5 times a week first thing so this makes for the perfect post workout breakfast to help repair my tired muscles (squats = tired body!) and I notice I feel better and well recovered after drinking this.

Smoothie slurping gives you the perfect pout…


Here is the rough/approximate protein breakdown (according to google – I am no food scientist):

  • 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds = 2g
  • 2 tbsp gelatin = 12g 
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds =4g
  • 2 tbs peanut butter = 8 g
  • 2tbsp cocoa = 2g protein

So there is a minimum of 26g of naturally occurring protein. No crazy things added just natural healing goodness.


Plus this is fruit free – so perfect if you are trying to avoid sugar and fructose for health reasons or just don’t stomach fruit well – I know I didn’t when my digestion and health was so poor I could tolerate much fruit at all! 

(Its sweetened with stevia which you can grab here and this is the blender I use)


Plus did I mention it’s like having a chocolate milkshake for breakfast??? and if you REALLY want to kick-start your green smoothie habit, get tons of recipe, double your energy and flatten your belly in just 10 days then make sure you start my Green Smoothie Challenge TODAY!

If you didn't know already I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with coffee.   I love it, my gut and body historically have hated it. But all in all, I am a total coffee snob and fiend.   And there is nothing that screams Christmas more than a SEASONAL...
