Energy Shake


Smoothies make for the best breakfasts. If you’re pressed for time in the AM, add the ingredients to your blender the night before. This smoothie is also a great pre-workout snack. Cacao powder is full of energy boosting minerals bound to help you pump out that last rep. Healthy fat and protein are a power duo that will keep you satiated longer. I recommend consuming about 60-90 minutes prior to hitting the weights.


Makes 1 serving

  • 1 tbsp 100% pure cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp nut butter, look for no sugar added just nuts!
  • 1/2 medium ripe banana
  • 1/2 c. 0% Greek yogurt or goat yogurt, if dairy free use water***
  • 2-3 ice cubes
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • Dash of nutmeg
  • 1 scoop of protein


  1. Add nut butter, cocoa powder, Greek yogurt (or water) and ice cubes into blender and mix at high speed.
  2. Slice banana, add into mixture, and re-blend.
  3. Lastly pulse in your protien powder.
