Recipe: Vanilla Coconut Smoothie Bombs (A Protein Shake Shortcut)

As if protein shakes weren’t convenient and simple enough, along comes smoothie bombs!

So what is a smoothie bomb? It’s a frozen little nugget with all the healthy fats and fiber you need for a nourishing protein shake: pre-measured, pre-mixed, and so easy to make. These little beauties mean it’s even faster to blend together a delicious, nutritious meal!

This version includes creamy vanilla and coconut for delicious taste and amazing health benefits. (To find out more, check out Five Ways Coconut Oil Makes You Look & Feel Great.)

If you’re searching for a way to get your family excited about pitching in with meals or eating healthier, this is the perfect way to start. There’s no cooking, only a few dishes to wash, and they can help make the protein shakes, too!

To use your smoothie bombs, just add one to the blender along with high-quality protein powder, a cup of frozen organic fruit (such as berries, cherries, or peach slices), and 10 ounces of coconut or nut milk.

A word about the nut milk you use: be sure it’s unsweetened, and choose the kind in the carton, not the can – sometimes called “coconut milk beverage.” Canned coconut milk is far too high in fat to be a smart option here.

A smoothie bomb also works in place of the healthy fats and fiber in any of the recipes in the free Smoothie Guide down below. Don’t forget to download it before you mix together your first batch of smoothie bombs!
