A Healthy Cafe Mocha Smoothie That Has an Incredible Chocolate Taste



     There are days that I want chocolate, ok that is most everyday that I crave chocolate. Then there are days I want coffee. Then there are days I want coffee and chocolate. I try to eat healthy everyday so how I am suppose to satisfy my chocolate and coffee craving? Simple, I drink a delicious chocolate mocha smoothie that it loaded with protein and fiber and my chocolate/coffee craving is satisfied. I get the great taste of coffee and chocolate and my body gets wonderful nutrition.

    I discovered a chocolate protein powder that is made with rich cocoa and tastes like a yummy cup of hot chocolate. CardioWhey Rich Cocoa is a delicious blend of high-quality whey protein that also has 7 grams of fiber per serving. This healthy protein powder made by Cardiotabs tastes great mixed in water and is also the perfect base for my healthy smoothies. I can add fruits and veggies or even peanut butter to my  Cardio Whey protein powder and still have a yummy smoothie that has a wonderful chocolate taste. My favorite smoothie contains spinach leaves and raspberries along with this cocoa protein powder and it makes a yummy chocolate raspberry smoothie. On days that I need coffee, I will add a scoop of CardioWhey to my coffee and the result is a yummy cafe mocha. There are so many delicious ways to satisfy my chocolate craving.



   CardioWhey Rich Cocoa contains 21 grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber per serving. It makes a great supplement for any one who wants to add more protein to their diet. If 21 grams of protein is too much for you, then just use one scoop of the powder. Did you know protein is great for muscle recovery? I like to consume more protein after I go running. Protein is also great for improving lean body mass. If you are trying to lose weight extra protein and fiber from CardioWhey will help keep te hunger away for hours. This product is also gluten free.

   My son loves that CardioWhey Rich Cocoa protein powder tastes delicious when mixed in water. My son runs 10 miles after school with cross country. When he is done, his muscles need protein recovery. So he simply adds water to his shaker bottle, filled with CardioWhey, that he packed in his backpack the night before. My son is then able to bike the 3 miles home.


There are so many healthy ways to take care of a chocolate/coffee craving with CardioWhey Rich Cocoa protein powder. Here are some delicious recipes that you can make with a blender:

Chocolate Raspberry
2 scoops CardioWhey Rich Cocoa
1 cup frozen raspberries
1 cup spinach leaves
1 cup vanilla almond milk

Chocolate Peanut Butter
1 scoop CardioWhey Rich Cocoa
