Cherry Chocolate Recovery Smoothie [and a Giveaway!]
Please don’t judge this smoothie by it’s
cover color. I tried and tried to make it green but the cacao powder just leaves everything looking… blah. I refuse to drink a smoothie that doesn’t involve greens so it wouldn’t be a nice pink color, either. I know the number one sin of food blogging is unattractive food/photos but I tried my best.
Healthy Skoop sent me a whole bunch of their products to try. Truth be told, to this point I’ve only used B-Strong, their protein powder, but I really like it. As we know, I’m always on a quest for the best plant-based protein powder. The B-Strong powder has done an AMAZING job keeping me full, even after a fifteen mile run. You can win your choice of product from Healthy Skoop, too. Keep scrolling down and enter my giveaway!My post-long run meal lately has been a smoothie for greens and protein powder (typically around 200 calories) then an egg and half an Ezekiel gluten-free English muffin with nut butter and whatever else (this week, brie cheese and apple slices). My runger has been slightly more manageable than normal, I will say.
