Smoothies-On-The-Go: Low-Sugar Chocolate Chip Protein Shake Recipe

Jul 20, 2017 @ Project Juice

Living a busy, on-the-go lifestyle while maintaining healthy habits can seem daunting. Luckily, we’ve come up with prep recipes for smoothies on-the-go! These can be prepped the night before or whipped up in less than 3 minutes in the morning. Make a few individual batches of the smoothie ingredients at the beginning of your week so you can rest assured knowing your breakfast is easy, delicious, and healthy for you! It is the most important meal of the day after all.


This smoothie has a secret, fibrous ingredient that creates an extra creamy smoothie without added sugar from fruit: cauliflower! Yup, this cruciferous vegetable has a mild flavor that can be masked by your other smoothie ingredients, creating a delicious base.

Although often overshadowed by veggies of the non-beige variety, cauliflower is incredibly healthy and nutrient packed.  It’s an excellent source of vitamin C, which is essential to the body’s production of collagen and elastin.  Translation?  Eat your cauliflower to ward off those pesky wrinkles.

Try this recipe loaded with fiber, protein, healthy fat, Omega 3’s, and a ton of selenium from brazil nuts which supports thyroid health!
