This homemade chocolate protein shake is perfect for breakfast, a snack, or if you need a pick me up after a workout. Simple ingredient list along with great taste plus it’s Weight Watchers friendly!
I will just go ahead and say, up until January I struggled with protein shakes. I thought all of them were just, honestly, disgusting! I have tried every kind known to mankind and just can’t quite stomach it.
Lucky for you, I am letting go of my secret homemade chocolate protein shake recipe in hopes that if you are in the same boat I was, you can change your mind!
The fundamentals of a good protein shake as far as taste goes is PROTEIN POWDER!
Orgain Protein Powder is the ONLY one I recommend. When you open it, it smells sweet instead of smelling horrid! Its base is pea plant, so it’s vegan-friendly too.
Here are some other facts about Orgain that's worth mentioning:
Variety of Flavors
- Vanilla Bean
- Chocolate Fudge
- Chocolate Peanut Butter
- Cookies and Cream
- Peanut Butter
- Peppermint Hot Cocoa
Low Net Carbs
No Sugar Added
21 grams of protein, 7 grams of organic fiber, 3 net carbs per serving
**You can get Orgain at Walmart and Sams (the premixed bottles), but it's definitely cheaper on Amazon.
If you don't have time to make the homemade chocolate protein shake, Orgain offers on the go bottles too!
This protein shake is 7 Smartpoints if you are on the Weight Watchers Freestyle plan. I know you are thinking Wow, that is high JUST for a protein shake. Just remember, all these ingredients are actually healthy and NOT PROCESSED.
Protein is what keeps you fuller for a longer amount of time, so no needing for snacking as much. Also, in some lower point processed snack foods, they have a lot of carbs, which the more carbs you have, the hungrier you will be if its not balanced with protein.
If you want to know more about how the body processes carbs, protein, etc. and just need a reality check health wise…I cannot tell you much I LOVE this book! She does such an awesome job explaining everything! I really believe everyone can benefit from it. Plus it’s not about dieting specifically its really more about the health benefits and how foods relate to the inflammation process in our bodies!
