How to make a choc-o-LATE protein shake

On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing one of my best late night healthy snack recipes, that is so quick and easy to make.

But first, I have two questions for you.

  • Do you have late night cravings?
  • Do you love chocolate?

If you said yes, you are like 94.54% of other people who also have late night sugar cravings.

That means this edition of Brad’s Cookbook is for you.

One of the questions I’m always asked goes a little something like this.

“Brad, what if I get cravings at night? I love chocolate and sugar so much that it makes me raid my fridge for ice cream.”

If this sounds familiar, trust me, you’re going to love drinking this quick and simple “Choc-o-LATE” protein shake.

Choc-o-late shake
  1. In a blender, add 1 cup of water and 5 ice cubes to give the shake a thicker smoothie consistency that is cold and refreshing.
  2. Add one serving of chocolate whey protein powder (discount links to our favorite brands below) and 1 tsp of cacao powder for a great source of antioxidants.
  3. If you want to add some extra sweetness, add 1 packet of stevia. Stevia is a natural sweetener that comes from a plant. This is different than artificial sweeteners, like Splenda, that contain chemicals.
  4. Once all the ingredients are added to the blender, add the top, and blend this bad boy up.
  5. Pour your Choc-o-LATE protein shake into a nice sized glass and it's now ready to drink.

In the YouTube cooking video, I used the chocolate gourmet flavor protein powder from Designer Whey.

All that’s left is to give this bad boy a taste.
