(Chocolate) Pick-Me-Up

We love the idea of whipping this up after an early morning workout—carbs from the banana, protein from ALOHA chocolate protein powder, and healthy fats from organic peanut butter make this the ideal recovery smoothie. Plus, the shot of espresso will help keep those good post-workout vibes going until lunchtime.

Ingredients

  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 1 tablespoon organic peanut butter
  • 2 scoops ALOHA chocolate protein powder
  • 1 shot espresso
  • 2 dates

Preparation

Blend with ice.
