Paleo Chocolate “Elvis” Protein Smoothie

Elvis Presley made the grilled sandwich with peanut butter, sliced banana and bacon famous.

“The Elvis” is not paleo approved; however, I do love the flavor of peanut butter & banana, so here is my version of “the Elvis” in a paleo-ish approved smoothie.  I don’t know if you can call this breakfast, but it sure helped curb my cravings for a milkshake!

The famous “Elvis” sandwich in a smoothie & modified for the paleo diet.
Ingredients
  • 1 sliced banana, frozen {if not frozen, add in 4 ice cubes}
  • 2 tbs almond butter
  • 1 cup unsweetened non-canned coconut milk (or almond milk)
  • 1 tsp raw honey
  • 1 scoop Sun Warrior Warrior Blend Raw Plant-Based Complete Protein Powder {chocolate or vanilla}
  • 1 tbs dark chocolate chips {optional}
  • 1 slice of bacon, crumbled {optional}
Instructions
  1. Place all items in blender (in the order listed above) or rocket blender
  2. Blend until smooth & enjoy!

 

Please Note

In this recipe I used Trader Joe’s new unsweetened coconut milk, which tastes a lot different than normal canned coconut milk. It’s less dense, less creamy and it doesn’t have a strong coconut flavor. I don’t suggest using canned coconut milk in this recipe if that’s all you have. Use almond milk instead.

The original Elvis does not use any chocolate, so if you don’t want to “cheat” with some dark chocolate chunks (I get the 70% cacao ones from Whole Foods) or chocolate protein powder, then feel free to omit.  You can use vanilla protein powder too.

Lastly, bacon is optional (but it makes it a true Elvis with it!).
