A high protein, low calorie smoothie that tastes like mint chocolate chip ice cream? Yes! Bananas keep things creamy (and add potassium), while cacao powder (which has been shown to help boost serotonin) gives a rich, chocolate flavor without any additional sugar. Add in stomach soothing fresh mint and vitamin-infused swiss chard (vitamins K, A, and C, iron and magnesium), along with a tablespoon of muscle building pea protein, and you have a complete meal in a glass.
