Delicious Chocolate Mint Protein Smoothie tastes more like a shake than a healthy meal replacement!
Chocolate Mint Protein Smoothie
Hello my chocolate loving foodie friends! I have a tasty protein drink that will keep you satisfied for hours and will take you absolutely no time to blend up!
Smoothies are my go to meal in the mornings or whenever I’m hungry and in a hurry!
For a while I was in the habit of sharing my smoothies on The Foodie Affair’s Facebook page.
I would blend up my creation before going to work, snap a photo and share the recipe. I got out of that routine when I changed my workout routine.
The routine was to blend up a smoothie as soon as I was done running with my sole sisters at O’Dark thirty… aka before the sun is out!
I’m limiting my runs and sleeping in more (ahhh), so I’ve extended my first meal of the day to late in the morning, which is when I’m at work.
Easy Smoothie Recipe
I make so much noise crushing ice with my mini blender that I sneak out of the lunch room without a photo as quick as possible, and sip my smoothie back in my office.
Although, I guess I’m not inconspicuous as I think since I’ve been greeted with “Is it smoothie time?”
It’s a dead giveaway when my co-workers notice my arms full of measuring cups, protein power as I make my way to our kitchen. 😉
Chocolate has been my flavor of choice lately.
I have one container of chocolate protein powder (I’m using Blue Bonnet Protein right now) as my base, and then mix up a combination of a few flavors; peanut butter powder, chia seeds, frozen bananas, avocado or coconut oil and now mint!
All the ingredients mix well with water, which is what I used here. Although my preference is to add almond or coconut milk.
The consistency is creamier and not as icy.
Do you have a favorite chocolate protein powder? I would love to hear your recommendations and also your favorite flavor combinations.

What a delicious idea for a protein drink to turn it into a smoothie! and I love that it has mint!
I tend to make all my protein drinks into smoothies! It’s fun to come up with different flavor combinations!
Chocolate and mint is BY FAR the best flavor combo EVER! 🙂
Right?! Fabulous like chocolate chip mint ice cream!!!
Love those flavours in there. I think it is humorous that you sneak into the break room and make your smoothies, even more funny if you starting bringing lighting set up, photography umbrella and special camera gear and lens into work. LOL
haha! The lighting is not so bad in the break room! LOL
Want to come work with me? 🙂 We can smoothie it together!
Yes, I need a work smoothie buddy 😉
Chocolate and mint is one of my favorite flavor combinations! I love smoothies too so I adore this nice, simple smoothie recipe 🙂
Aren’t the flavors just delicious together?! Sooo good feels like we’re being bad 😉
Kristin @ Dizzy Busy and Hungry!
These look so pretty, and delicious too! Great smoothie recipe!
Thanks, Kristin! I’m hooked on this chocolate/mint combo!
Sounds so good and I just love chocolate. I’m a smoothie fan too!
Chocolate is good for us too, so it’s only natural to have it in a smoothie 😉
Awesome, Jenni! Glad you like this smoothie recipe 🙂
One of the reasons I started mixing smoothies is because it’s so simple and I feel satisfied. I like that you use cocoa powder! I will add it as well if yogurt is by base!
great use for all the mint in my garden, and anything with chocolate HAS to be good! pinned
Thanks, Cindy! My mint is still going strong too!
Sarah @ The Chef Next Door

I’m not a huge smoothie lover, but every now and again, I do like them. This one I would love because Chocolate and Mint is a favorite flavor combo of mine.
The mint has a refreshing flavor and chocolate is just wonderful 🙂
