Protein Shake Diet
Raise your hand if you’ve ever created a truly disgusting smoothie? Too much powder, overloaded on the greens, not enough fruit, too much water… Yeah I’ve been there, and they’ve gone straight down the sink.
It’s pretty frustrating after you just prepped all the ingredients, assembled your blender, and then end up having to clean it all up without being able to reap the benefits!
GOOD NEWS: There’s a smoothie powder that helps to provide all the best ingredients without tasting like total dirt. In fact, it actually produces the best tasting smoothie I’ve ever had with fewer ingredients and more superfoods than before. Deanna from Well and Worthy Life and I teamed up to bring some of our favorite products to make a deliciously healthy smoothie

Chocolate Breakfast Smoothie
I use Philosophie Superfood Powders in my breakfast smoothies and highly recommend! These powders are full of nutrient-rich ingredients and my favorite is the Cacao Magic. This blend is created with Chinese herbs, rare medicinal mushrooms, and superfoods sourced from all over the world, including raw cacao powder, which provides the blend’s chocolate flavor.
You’ll find me using this Cacao Magic in the healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie recipe below, and also in this superfood hot chocolate drink recipe.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
- 2 tbsp Cacao Magic from Philosohpie
- 1 tbsp bee pollen
- 3 cups Elmhurst Chocolate Milked Peanuts (option: sub this with almond or coconut milk)
- 1 cup frozen bananas
- 1/2 cup ice
- water to loosen for desired consistency
A lot of really good smoothies have a creamy element, which is most often achieved by adding milk or yogurt. I recently discovered plant-based milks when I was asked to become an ambassador for the National Peanut Board. They send me new peanut-based products to try and that is how I discovered the Elmhurst Peanut Milks. They are PERFECT for smoothies, sauces, and probably so much more than I have yet to uncover! Stay tuned for more experiments in the kitchen using these plant-based milks from Elmhurst 1925.
P.S. – If you have a peanut allergy, they have other types of plant-based milks like almond, and oats. Check out more of their products here.
