Mocha fudge sounds rich, decadent and … healthy? If you enjoy sipping your breakfast or recharging with a post-workout protein shake, then you have to try this Protein Mocha Fudge Smoothie, powered by bone broth. Don’t let the long name fool you. This fudgy protein smoothie is Paleo and tastes amazing — plus, it’s healthy!
It’s naturally sweetened with nutrition-rich banana and healing raw honey. Adding a mix of cocoa and carob powders lend that chocolate taste and the teaspoon of instant coffee gives this smoothie taste like a coffee shop favorite.The addition of protein powder made from bone broth will help replenish your body after a tough workout — I particularly love the chocolate version in this. And don’t forget the cashews — they’ll add necessary healthy fats and satiety to this drink.
Making the smoothie is super easy. Add all the ingredients into the blender and purée until smooth. Add water and ice to reach your preferred consistency. That’s all there is to it!
