CHOCOLATE BERRY PROTEIN SMOOTHIE

Here’s a clean smoothie option to get a good amount of protein, fiber, and healthy fats to start your day. I love using Garden Of Life chocolate which is a vegetable based protein powder. It’s easier on my digestive versus whey protein. But use what works best for you. Maca powder supports healthy vitality and energy. Cacao nibs are packed with tons of nutrients but it adds more depth to the chocolate. Feel free to use your favorite nut milk. Lately I’ve been using unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Always go for unsweetened!

With about 8 grams of net carbs mainly from the mixed berries (blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries), this is definitely low-carb and diabetic friendly. It gives just the right bit of sweetness to the smoothie. If you want to keep your net carbs lower, then omit the maca powder which brings your smoothie net carbs down to 5 grams.
