This is a delicious, refreshing summer treat, and with the optional addition of protein powder, you can also make this into a perfect post or pre-workout smoothie!
Let us begin!
You will need:
– 3 frozen bananas
– 1 cup milk (I use my homemade hemp milk)
– 1/2 cup water
– 2 scoops Merrikh Medical Paleo Protein Powder
– 1 tbsp. raw cacao powder
– 1 tbsp. chia
– a few sprigs of fresh mint leaves
First, to make your fresh hemp milk, add 3 cups water to 1/3 cup organic hemp seeds. Add in four pitted dates for sweetness, and blend until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute to 90 seconds. Pour into a jar and store in refrigerator.
Next, you are going to add all the ingredients into your blender. Break up your bananas and add first, then pour in the milk, water, protein powder, chia raw cacao, powder and fresh mint leaves:
Next, pulse/blend the mixture until thick and creamy. If you are wanting to make this into a smoothie, add more milk, water, or both, so that it will be more of a drinking consistency. Because I am making this into a frosty, I am keeping my mixture thick:
Spoon or pour out of the blender and into cups, top with fresh mint leaves and eat up! Tastes soooo good!
