Dark Chocolate Smoothie [Protein Shake Recipe]
Perhaps, the best name for this recipe is “The Happy Smoothie!” It’ll not only please your taste buds magnificently, but it’ll also feed your mind, body, and soul with so many happy hormones – and of course, nutrients. It’s sweet, minty, chocolatey, earthy, and mildly salty – what more can you ask for? Happiness overload; that’s all this is.
