Jini's Double Chocolate Shake

Dbl. Choc. Protein Shake made with Thorne's Whey Protein
Anyone who knows me or has read anything I’ve ever written knows that I’m all about the chocolate; (if you have any doubts, check out the chocolate page on my website.)  I have to admit I do a pretty good job of sticking to the prescribed one square of dark chocolate a day despite the lavish praise I dole out to the vendors on my chocolate page.  But a girl can dream; can’t she?

I long ago came up with a whey (pun intended) to marry my love of chocolate to my morning protein shake.  By itself, this shake is packed with nutrients, healthy fat, fiber, quality protein and
greens (you won’t even taste those, I promise.)  But once you add this cocoa powder…voila! ¡C’est la magie! (it's magic.)

Honestly?  I never get tired of this shake.  The Valrhona chocolate powder just takes it to a whole other level (available at Whole Foods.)  You can find the other ingredients in my online store. Try it!  And let me know what you think. It's the perfect no-time-for-breakfast meal.

Jini’s Double Chocolate Shake

French Imported Valrhona cocoa powder adds deep color and extra rich, intense chocolate flavor to this chocolate shake (plus polyphenols, oleic acid and powerful anti-oxidants.)

1 scoop Thorne Research's Chocolate Whey Protein Isolate Protein Powder
               (use Thorne VegaLite if you don't tolerate dairy well)
1 scoop of Thorne Medibulk
1 cup Trader Joe’s unsweetened coconut milk
1 heaping tablespoon of almond butter
1 heaping tablespoon of Valrhona unsweetened cocoa powder.
1 leaf of organic Kale
13 ice cubes (makes a very thick shake-use fewer ice cubes for a thinner shake)
splash or two of bottled water-add if too thick

Blend all ingredients in a blender.
