Chocolate Berry Smoothie

I usually like my smoothies with all “real food” ingredients, but when my fridge is looking particularly desolate I reach for the protein powder.  I like whey isolate because it makes your smoothie creamy.  So creamy, in fact, that I tend to sub water for my usual almond milk (also when my fridge is empty, I have no almond milk).  20g protein plus berries, spinach & chia  – the week is off to a good start!


Chocolate Berry Smoothie


  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup strawberries
  • handful spinach
  • 3 ice cubes
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds


  1. Blend all ingredients & enjoy.

If using frozen berries, skip the ice cubes - they're just in there to keep the smoothie cold so you don't notice the spinach.
