Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie

The benefits to adding more protein in your diet are endless: larger muscle mass, fat loss, stronger bones, etc. As a new mom, I know that protein is an important part of my diet to give me the strength I need throughout my day. Not to mention, my husband is always looking for high protein snacks at the end of his daily work out.

Want to know our favorite way of consuming protein? This smoothie is a perfect dairy-free option for those wanting to add a little protein in their diet; best of all, no protein powder required. Measuring in at a little over 14 g of protein, this delicious Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie gives you about 1/3 of your daily protein intake.

I love to make smoothies. I will have to try this delicious recipe on the weekend. Protein bars are a great way to get some protein into your diet.
