It usually happens around 3:00 p.m. You’re convinced that unless you drink another cup of coffee, you’ll fall asleep in the carpool lane. Don’t fall into that trap! Pack yourself a healthy snack filled with whole grains, protein, vitamins, and minerals that will feed your cells the right nutrients for a real, long-lasting energy boost. This smoothie packs so many good-for-you ingredients inside such delicious flavors that you’re left wondering who’s benefiting more, your body or your taste buds. The answer is both, I promise. The rich antioxidants from the unprocessed cocoa, coupled with the protein-packed peanut butter and the fiber-rich oats, bring you a great combination of nutrients. Not to mention the chia seeds, which are a popular super food containing ample omega-3, calcium, and fiber.

For the smoothie
Blend all ingredients together.
If you include the chia seeds, consume the drink immediately. Chia seeds absorb a lot of water and will gel, leaving you with a wiggly pudding instead of a smoothie.
