I suck at running this week and a Vegan Curry recipe

CHOCO-PB Smoothie

Here is a super delish Smoothie….Great for Pre-Run!

Choco-PB Soothie

  • 1 scoop vanilla protein (your choice, I use plant based but whey is fine if you have it)
  • 1 Tablespoon Natural Peanut Butter
  • 1 small Banana
  • 1 teaspoon Chia Seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon cacao nibs
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Cashew Milk (or any non-dairy milk)
  • Ice

Blend until smooth

Cacao Nibs are great for pre workout…….

“Cacao Nibs contain a constituent known as “theobromine,” an alkaloid structurally similar to that of caffeine, that occurs in greater quantities in cacao and that acts as a stimulant and promotes strength, endurance, and enhanced mood.”
