From "A Whisk and Two Wands" Website

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Protein Shake
1 serving
Strawberry layer:
3/4 c unsweetened almond milk or milk of choice
1 scoop vanilla, or berry, protein powder
1/2-3/4 c frozen organic strawberries (May have to add more ice if using fresh berries.)

Chocolate layer:
1/2 c unsweetened almond milk or milk of choice
1/2 scoop chocolate protein
1/2 c ice cubes (about 4 cubes) 

In a Magic Bullet, VitaMix, or blender blend the ingredients for the strawberry layer, if not thick enough add a little ice or place in freezer for a couple of minutes. If it is too thin the two layers will swirl and mix instead of layer. Pour into glass. Blend ingredients for the chocolate layer. Carefully pour on top of the strawberry layer. Enjoy!

I have spent the past few months perfecting this recipe. There is no gluten or added sugar so it is perfect for those of you trying to follow a paleo or gluten-free diet. Just simply mix up all the ingredients below, form into balls and place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. Place in the refrigerator for 1 hour before serving. You can find the cocoa powder, coconut oil and chia seeds at Whole Foods or Trader Joes.

  • 1/2 jar of unsweetened almond butter
  • 1/2 bag of chopped pecans
  • 1 cup of raw cocoa powder
  • 5 tablespoons of organic unrefined coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla
  • 1 large handful of no sugar added shredded coconut
