dairy-free, high protein, chocolate-licorice smoothie under 250 calories

coco smoothie

If you like sweet treats with licorice and chocolate notes, you’ll enjoy this low calorie snack, or mini meal. I’ll have this as my pre-workout drink. I use carob instead of cocoa powder because it’s sweeter and has a creamier consistency when blended.

High-protein, dairy-free, chocolate-licorice smoothie

  • raw fennel stalk (save the bulb for a salad or soup), cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 T carob powder
  • ½ cup frozen green grapes
  • ½ frozen banana, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • ¼ cup plain collagen protein powder (I use Great Lakes)
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (I use Sprouts)

Blend ingredients in the order above. Mix with a large spoon and put in the freezer for 2 minutes. Remove from the freezer, stir with large spoon and drink right away.
