Dairy-Free Chocolate Post-Workout Smoothie

Dairy-Free Chocolate Post-Workout Smoothie

I'm a big fan of soft-serve ice cream.

Especially if it's the salted caramel kind. In a sugar cone.

Every so often I will enjoy a pint of frozen goodness after a tough resistance training workout.

Problem is, dairy makes me feel downright awful.

So, over my adult life I've messed around with different meal-replacement shake recipes in an attempt to achieve an ice-cream-like consistency.

Here's my latest chocolatey iteration.

On an unrelated note, if tomatoes are fruit does that mean ketchup is a smoothie?

Dairy-Free Creamy Chocolate Post-Workout Smoothie

While your friends are posting political rants on FaceTube, you can try this delicious smoothie.


🍦1 frozen banana, peeled and sliced

🍦2 cups fresh spinach

🍦5-10 fresh mint leaves

🍦1 scoop chocolate pea protein powder

🍦a pinch of cinnamon

🍦1/2 lemon (squeeze the juice)

🍦1 cup hot chamomile tea

🍦3 cups ice


Grab your heavy-duty blender.

Add the frozen banana slices, spinach, mint leaves, protein powder, cinnamon, and ice.

Now squeeze some fresh lemon juice into the mix.

Be sure to strain the seeds.

Finally add the hot tea.

Why hot tea you ask?

It helps blend this tasty concoction with less liquid, resulting in a thicker consistency.

Kind of like soft-serve ice cream.

About 300 calories.

If you're cool with dairy, try this awesome chocolate whey protein powder instead of the pea protein.

Something else for you.

I know, you probably don't feel like attending another Zoom video conference meeting, but hear me out.

We know fitness on your own is challenging.

It's especially tough to stay accountable to training smart, eating mindfully, and getting enough rest.

And can you maintain the healthy habits required for long-term success?

But what if I told you we have a solution where you can get leaner, stronger, and happier?

We're looking for a few over-40 men and women who want to join us for our 14-Day At-Home Fitness Challenge.

No, this is not some generic app workout.

These are on-demand workouts, led by world-class coaches, especially for over-40 men and women who want to slow aging.

We made them available 24/7 to accommodate your busy schedule.

Your expert coach is right there the whole time, telling you what and how to do it.

Plus giving you modifications for common injuries, varying ability levels, or equipment limitations.

The best part?

You don't need to have your video on, and you don't even need any equipment.

Plus, with on-demand coaching sessions, you can train as early as you choose.

The early bird gets the worm, right?

Or do your workout later in the day, if you are too busy in the morning.

Just remember to treat your training session as an important "meeting" on your calendar.

Give it high priority and you will reap the rewards of following a smart training plan.

Rewards like less chance of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.

I hope you can join us.

If you're still on the fence and unsure, go ahead and enroll in the 14-Day Fat Flush System.
