A smoothie when done right is the ultimate blend of convenience, taste, and health enhancement. Nothing gives you a better bang for your buck from a time and nutrition standpoint than a well crafted smoothie. You can load it with key nutrients and make it in 90 seconds or less.
Here is a smoothie that you will crave and your brain will thank you for every time you drink it.
Mocha Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie.
1 cup cold Neuro Coffee
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
1 Tbsp Powdered Peanut Butter (like PB2)
2 tsp unsweetened baking cocoa
1 Tbsp peanut butter
1 cup ice
Additional water based on preference
Blend in a blender until smooth and drink. It tastes like a coffee infused peanut butter cup with none of the sugar that you'd expect and all the brain enhancement that you can handle.
Here's why it works so well.
Unsweetened Baking Cocoa
This version of dark chocolate is contains high concentrations of antioxidants that fight oxidative stress and were shown in a preliminary study at Loma Linda University to boost gamma brain waves which play an important role mood and potentially cognition.
Your secret weapon for flavor and brain health. The mixing of coffee and chocolate is one of the greatest flavor combinations in the world (maybe second to chocolate and peanut butter which you also get in this smoothie!). But Neuro Coffee, enhanced with patented coffee fruit antioxidants, adds to this the additional benefit of boosting BDNF for great neuron/brain health and support.
Protein + Fat
The protein powder and peanut butter provide a protein/fat combo that delivers great flavor with minimal sugar. We've talked in the past about the importance of controlling sugar for mental health as well as why your brain loves protein so much. This smoothie optimizes both of these areas for you with minimal effort.
Don't hesitate. Try this smoothie tomorrow for breakfast! You won't regret it.
