Chocolate Protein Smoothie Bowl (GF)

Chocolate Protein Smoothie Bowl (gf) (1)

Getting enough protein during the day can be a challenge when you are a vegetarian. My solution? Protein Smoothie Bowls!! As you can see from my blog roll, I have become quite obsessed with making “bowl” recipes for lunch. This particular recipe packs a hefty 33 grams of protein – thanks to a scoop of pea protein powder, some Greek yogurt and chia seeds. Since I fancy myself a pretty active person, I’m supposed to take in a minimum of 100 grams of protein every day. Having a protein shake in the morning and this protein smoothie bowl at lunch makes it easy to consume the necessary protein one needs during the day. 🙂
