Our Chocolate Almond Milk Smoothie may sound indulgent, but you wouldn’t believe how great it is for you! Packed with fiber, protein, and super-food antioxidants, this smoothie is great right after your workout. Proteins help to build muscle, while the carbs and sugars prevent an energy crash. Honey has a low glycemic index, so it won’t cause a sugar rush like processed sweeteners will.
I find myself making this smoothie for meal replacement in a pinch. If you don’t have some of the ingredients on the list, don’t fret! Swap in other fruits, replace things you don’t like, and make this your own. You can keep bags of berries in your freezer, and even peel, chop, and freeze bananas for easier prep.
Our Chocolate Almond Milk Smoothie is easy to make and very satisfying. I keep most of the ingredients in my freezer for quick meals. Do you know how to make your own homemade almond milk? It’s easier than you think.
If you have an allergy to almonds, try using another plant based milk, like coconut milk. There’s so many options for plant milks at the grocery store, and you can always make your own at home in just a few steps.
Make our Almond Milk Smoothie extra special
Smoothies are so easy to change up when you want something different. We don’t always stick to our own recipes-every once and a while, we toss in something extra to switch it up! Here are our suggestions:
- Use a frozen banana for an extra thick smoothie
- Add in oats or chia seeds for extra fiber
- Swap out the chocolate protein powder for vanilla
- Replace the blueberries with blackberries or raspberries
