I don’t know what it is. I’m not much of a dinner person. Sometimes, if I have a larger breakfast and lunch, plus snacks I will just have a smoothie for dinner.
I rationalize this because I’m still receiving plenty of healthy nutrients. Carbs and potassium from the banana, protein and healthy fat from the peanut butter, fiber and healthy fat from the Chia seeds, protein from the Greek yogurt and the protein powder. Pretty balanced. As long as I had some veggies earlier in the day I’m good to go.
Plus, since I don’t feel stuffed from eating too much I sleep much better. Win, win.
If you are a dinner person, this smoothie is perfect for a snack or following a workout. Or curb your chocolate craving the healthy way ;).
1 Frozen banana
1 cup almond milk
1 Tsp chia seeds
1 Tbsp Greek yogurt
1 Tbsp Peanut Butter
1 scoop chocolate protein powder

Put all ingredients in a blender, mix up and enjoy!
