Peanut and Chocolate Chia Smoothie

Yes I know…another peanut butter and chocolate combo! A girl just can’t resist! If you fancy a high protein chocolate breakfast then this is the one for you!

I’m currently writing this while on the train to London for a fitness event. It’s my first one so hoping it’s going to be a good one! One of the best things about starting this blog and my Instagram account has been meeting like minded people who are as passionate about a fitness lifestyle as me. Bring on the workouts, brunches and endless workout gear purchases!

Anyway back to the breakfast (or dessert/ snack) . It contains 30g Protein and incorporates so many powerhouse ingredients such as chia seeds and maca powder. You make the chia pudding the night before and the rest can be whipped up in the morning. Like most of my recipes some ingredients are optional depending on what you have in your cupboard and whether you’re following a vegan diet. See below for the recipe..
