Blueberry Cobbler Protein Smoothie

by Wednesday, August 10, 2016

It’s no secret you guys- I love smoothies.  I love protein shakes…and I want them to taste like dessert.  Like delicious, decadent dessert shakes that shouldn’t be healthy, but they are….because I made them healthy.

I drink a protein smoothie almost every single day for breakfast, either before my workout or after.  If I drink it after my workout, I usually make my pre-workout breakfast small and simple…like a banana or an apple and some almonds.

ANYWAY…back to the delicious dessert smoothie recipe for today!

I was inspired to make this at home when I ordered something similar at the Fuel Bar in Barry’s Bootcamp Hollywood.  It was SOO good, that I just had to make it at home…and of course I made it my way…light and filled with dairy-free, gluten-free, high protein powder.

It truly tastes like dessert, like most of my protein smoothies, but this one is a little extra special I think.  Filled with antioxidant-rich blueberries, potassium packed banana, and of course TONS of protein.  And it is low calorie enough to have for a post workout boost and filling enough to have for breakfast.

The secret ingredient is Better N Peanut Butter- a lower fat, lower calorie peanut butter that I am basically obsessed with.  I buy it at Trader Joes (I also use it in my energy balls).
