The Original Jennifer Aniston Chocolate Protein Shake

This smoothie was from back in 2015 and I believe I read about it in a magazine and wanted to try it out for myself. (This was originally published in January 2015.) Her “new” smoothie is very similar to the original.

Her daily breakfast  is a nutrient-rich smoothie made out of berries, banana, chocolate almond milk and protein powder, maca powder, sprouted almonds and trace mineral drops. When I read about it, I was instantly intrigued and had to try it myself.

What makes her smoothie so great?  Let’s break it down:

  • berries (cherries and blueberries): full of antioxidants and vitamins
  • chocolate almond milk: If you’re using a chocolate protein powder, you can use regular almond milk or chocolate almond milk.
  • vegan chocolate protein powder: I recommend using the protein powder that you have and/or like. If you don’t have chocolate, add a bit of unsweetened cocoa powder and a touch of stevia or honey. (I love the vega one line.)
  • maca powder: is one of those superfoods you find at the health food store and it’s been used for thousands of years in Incan cultures as a source of nourishment and healing. (Maca is a nutrient-dense packed with vitamins, plant sterols and many essential minerals that can increase staminia, boost libido and combat fatigue. From Navitas Naturals ) I don’t keep any at home (vega one actually has some in it already) and it’s certainly not necessary.
  • trace mineral drops: again…not necessary. I’m not sold on mineral drops being an integral part of a smoothie.
  • frozen banana: they make smoothies creamy and sweet. It’s always a good idea to have them in your freezer.
  • chocolate stevia: use stevia if you have it and like it (any flavor) or a small drizzle of honey if you don’t. (Or skip sweeteners completely!)
  • sprouted almonds: uhhh, what?! you might be thinking… but it’s really easy. Soak raw almonds in water overnight and add to the smoothie. Or, if you forget, simply add the almonds before blending. 🙂
