Chocolate Covered Strawberry Protein Shake – Raw vegan protein powder blended with strawberries to create a healthy way to satisfy that sweet tooth, ready in under 5 minutes it couldn’t be easier!
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Sun Warrior. The opinions and text are all mine.
A few weeks back, I was contacted by Sunwarrior about working with them and reviewing their products. I knew the brand already, and although I am not much of a protein powder/supplement user, I do believe the Sunwarrior brand has some of the cleanest products out there.
I obviously love that they are raw plant-based protein, but also that they have clean ingredients without all the extras that many powders have. I have always sent people their way when they have asked about recommendations for protein powders.
So to have them get in touch with me was pretty cool, and although this is a sponsored post, all opinions and reviews are my own. In fact this review only solidified the previous thoughts I had on this great brand.
I chose to try the vanilla and chocolate flavor of both the classic and warrior blend of protein powders. My morning smoothie routine usually includes some sort of fruit combination, a large handful of greens, some hemp seeds, spices and seasonings and almond milk. So I played around a bit with flavor combinations, using these powders in place of my usual hemp seeds.
Because of the sweetness in the powders (which is stevia in case you were wondering), I did end up liking most of my concoctions best with more greens than fruit, which is not a bad thing since the more greens the better in my book! I loved every single one and had a really hard time choosing my favorite.
When Sunwarrior mentioned that I could also add my recipe into a little friendly competition they had going on, I knew I needed to create something other than a typical breakfast…so on went my thinking cap and low and behold this indulgent strawberry protein shake was born.
Anyone Else Obsessed With Strawberries & Chocolate?…
Chocolate covered strawberries are literally one of my all time favorite treats. I mean who doesn’t like strawberries or chocolate? And together?! Forget about it. If I could lay in a strawberry field where they grew chocolate covered from the ground, I’d never leave. I knew that I needed to bring this favorite of mine to life in a simple delicious thick cold drink.
Here’s What You Need To Make It;
- Sun Warrior chocolate protein powder
- Frozen strawberries
- Almond milk – you can you your preferred non dairy milk
When I tried the deep natural chocolate flavor in both the Classic Protein and the Warrior Blend, the idea hit me. It’s simple, has few ingredients and it tastes like heaven! I decided to take it up a notch with a tad of molasses, which is a perfect addition because it really deepens the already delicious flavor of this strawberry protein shake.
I literally had to fight of my boys in order to snap any pictures. Let’s just say this shake did not last long once my camera was put down…
