High Protein, Low Carb Healthy Chocolate Snack


Chocolate is a long time favorite flavor for many people. When you are pregnant one of the best things to do for you and baby is try to limit the refined sugars found in most processed foods.

If you love chocolate, want good nutrition, great flavor and want to limit sugar… what is a great choice for all that?  SmartMeal Chocolate Protein Mix.

SmartMeal Chocolate Nutritional Shake Mix is a delicious healthful drink. One serving provides 15 grams of protein and 35% of the recommended Daily Value for 17 vitamins and minerals, plus beneficial levels of calcium, phosphorus, vitamin D and magnesium. Use it as a  a healthful snack anytime throughout the day. Each drink is only 130–140 calories.

The great tasting shakes are soy based, have flax to help with keeping the bowels moving, and contain 15 total grams of protein per shake.

These shakes are amazing and versatile!  I love to make these for an easy, refreshing and filling meal.  You can just add water and shake them up, put them in a blender with ice for a thicker shake, or even make them and freeze them for an ‘icy treat’!

During pregnancy  you could add some extra fruit (maybe blend the chocolate shake with some sliced banana) and make a yummy smoothie. You can also experiment with adding this to other recipes to add chocolate flavor and protein to your food intake. (I like to make a chocolate or chocolate mint pudding using this protein as part of the recipe.)

SmartMeal provides 2 grams of dietary fiber per serving, plus cold-pressed, organic flax seed that offers 200 mg of beneficial omega-3 essential fatty acids. Flax seed may help contribute to a feeling of fullness. SmartMeal provides 15 grams of protein from soy protein isolate, pea protein isolate, golden chlorella protein, and only contains natural flavors.

Mix 2 level scoops of powder in approximately 8 ounces of water or milk (or to taste), then shake and drink.    During pregnancy, getting quality protein and nutrition throughout the day is important.  This high protein, low carb healthy chocolate snack shake is a great way to make getting your nutrition easy.

Enjoy Chocolate (one of my favorites), Vanilla (yes… it’s very good),and Chai.

Do not use these to lose weight during pregnancy. This makes a great protein shake to help make sure you get enough calories. Adding extra fruit will help make sure you get your fruits in daily.
