Nut Butter Protein Smoothie

This high protein smoothie is a little bit like enjoying a peanut butter cup in a glass!  It’s sweetened with frozen berries and filled with cacao powder and your choice of nut butter for a creamy and sweet texture.  We’ve added our Cocoa Coconut Collagen Whey for muscle-supportive protein that will keep you full for hours.
