Healthy Almond Joy Protein Smoothie
Why I Love This Recipe
Healthy Almond Joy Protein Smoothie: chocolate, almond, and coconut... all blended into one delicious, good-for-you shake!
Recipe Note: Any protein powder can be substituted for the collagen protein. However if using a pre-sweetened protein powder be sure to check the sweetness of your smoothie before adding any of the dates. Or if preferred you can also leave the protein out completely.
