Pre-Workout Chocolate Shake (Vegan Option)

I made this shake right before I went and exercised and I was really impressed how it didn’t feel like it just sat in my stomach like a lump. I drank it, and a few minutes later I went and did some cardio, and my stomach felt great. I didn’t feel it sloshing around in my stomach or making any rumbly noises. 


2 bananas (better if they have some brown spots on the peel)

1 tbs. of cocoa powder 

1/2 cup of milk or yogurt (I used organic yogurt, but raw milk, almond or coconut milk will work too) 

1/2 cup of ice

Blend all together in a blender/vitamix. Enjoy!

Note- If wanted, you could add in some flax or chia seeds for some healthy fats.

Add all ingredients into the blenderIMG_1778


Add shake into a cup and have a good workout! 🙂 IMG_1780
