chocolate covered strawberry smoothie

I think this may be just as good, if not better than the Chocolate Cherry Bomb! This should be called the "Chocolate Covered-Keeps You Going All Day- Strawberry Smoothie"
So as we all know, protein powders can be very pricey, especially if you want different flavors. While I normally roll with a big 2 pounder of Vanilla Sun Warrior, I do get the occasional hankering for a chocolate smoothie. I don't have 'tha bread' to keep both flavors around, so I just mosey on down to my local grocery store or health food store and pick up a few of the single serving packets of whatever sounds good in a chocolate flavor. I always go with something vegan and choose raw if at all possible. For today's CCSS, I went with Amazing Grass's Superfood Chocolate Powder, which has all sorts of nutrients and delicious things in it.

Try it out!

In the Mix:

1 C frozen strawberries
1 C water or almond milk or a mixture
1 packet Amazing Grass Superfood Chocolate Powder
1 scoop Vanilla Sun Warrior
1 banana
1 T raw cacao powder
Cacao nibs to taste

i heart chocolate covered kate

And she is giving away Larabars! Enter for your chance to win, HERE! I've made many of her raw recipes, such as this deliciously decadent Raw Carrot Cake, which was amazing :)

And since we're talkin' chocolate...I have recently been obsessed with chocolate smoothies! Especially the chocolate cherry bomb that has been floating around in blog land.
Check it out, and keep in mind you don't need the hemp seeds if you don't have them, you can also substitute blueberries and I'm sure strawberries would be great too. I looove it with vanilla or chocolate sun warrior and some cacao nibs, which magically become tasty when you blend them with other stuff.

holaraw bears all

So, I realized that most of my favorite blogs don't just post recipes they like, they post everything. Everything they eat, so they are accountable. So I'm going to give that a try the next few days. I won't have picture evidence of everything because I haven't got a point and shoot I can just throw in my purse, but I will definitely record it all and do my best to give visual aids.

Breakfast Smoothie:
1/2 a banana
2 medium valencia oranges
6 ice cubes
1.5 scoops Sun Warrior
1 C spinach

Then I worked out with Zuzie, a lovely czech girl who can really kick your ass, and polished off a half cup of chopped up pineapple :)

warrior of the sun!

For months I pondered, tossed and turned, wondering 'why are the fitnessista's protein pancakes so much better looking, and probably better tasting than mine? Why are my smoothies gritty, unattractive, and seem to be missing something? Isn't there a better way to get my protein than eating high-fat nuts and seeds all the time?

And then, from heaven, the answer appeared:

One scoop has just 70 calories, one gram of fat and 16 grams of protein! There isn't a psychotically long list of scary ingredients, the bulk of it is ancient sprouted brown rice. It's sweetened with stevia and totally raw and vegan! And the best part? It tastes delicious. In smoothies it makes everything taste like a milkshake. Today's smoothie was mango, banana baby red chard, a few chunks of papaya, and the sun warrior made it a dreamsicle! It improves the texture so much and tastes like a creamsicle :)

I am never leaving home without it!
