Get your morning caffeine along with a good dose of protein in this tasty smoothie. Sponsored by Stonyfield and The Healthy Scoop.

Earl Grey Chocolate Smoothie

A few months ago my husband started doing Crossfit. He’s become a convert to this intensive gym-based exercise. I’m also converted to believing that it works since the results are pretty obvious. You would not believe how fit and toned he is. I’m really proud of him.

One of the other things he’s done as part of his new fitness program is to increase his protein intake via protein powder. So when my friends at Stonyfield offered me some yogurt and a tub of The Healthy Scoop Plant-Based Protein Powder I thought it would be fun for me to try it out as well.

I decided to use the protein powder to get in that extra blast of protein along with my morning blast of caffeine. I used the chocolate powder mixed with some strong earl grey tea, Stonyfield yogurt and half of a banana.

It’s got a nice creamy flavor, not very sweet. A bit of honey can be added if you want it sweeter. Tasty and healthy. A great start to the day.

I’m definitely glad I gave The Healthy Scoop protein powder a try. Now, do I have the guts to join my husband and try Crossfit?
