17 High-Protein Chocolate Smoothies That Taste More Like Milkshakes

17 High-Protein Chocolate Smoothies That Taste More Like Milkshakes

StyleCaster | Caroline Bell

If you’d rather drink your breakfast than eat it, you probably already have a few high-protein chocolate smoothies in your arsenal. Heck, thanks to pantry ingredients like cocoa powder, protein powder and cacao nibs, it’s easy enough to turn any smoothie into a high-protein chocolate smoothie. (In other words, life is good.)

That said, it’s easy to get stuck in a smoothie routine, which can ultimately lead to a dreaded smoothie rut. If you find yourself sleepily dumping the same ingredients into your blender morning after morning, it’s probably time for a change. The list below can help you out with that.

All of the recipes here have one ingredient in common: chocolate. But make no mistake, not all high-protein chocolate smoothies are the same. In fact, varying your other mix-ins can vastly change the taste and texture of the smoothie. You can choose one of these to whip up tomorrow, but I recommend trying as many as possible.
