I have always had a sweet tooth. It’s a pretty equal opportunity sweet tooth  – ice cream, cookies, brownies, cheesecake, milkshakes, everything is fair game! Especially if there’s chocolate. 😉 I swear since I had my baby and have been exclusively breastfeeding (and sleep-deprived…) the sweets cravings have been worse! Especially in the afternoon. But here’s the deal – while I’m all for the occasional indulgence, I really would rather satisfy these sweet cravings in a more nutritious, satiating way.

I know I’m not alone in this, either. I work with a lot of busy moms (and busy dads, too!), and one of the top questions that pops up is for recommendations for craving-satisfying, high-protein, easy snacks. That’s why I am super thrilled to share my Black Forest Grass-Fed Whey Protein Smoothie sponsored by the cleanest protein powder I’ve found – Naked Nutrition.

When it comes to protein powders, I’ve always loved the idea of being able to add a little bit to my oatmeal or a whey protein smoothie to easily increase the protein, but I’ve never found a protein powder I’ve loved. So many protein powders out there lack nutritional integrity. They’re often full of artificial sweeteners, “artificial and natural flavorings” (whatever that means), and a bunch of other random ingredients.

Naked Nutrition Grass-Fed Protein Powder Review

That’s why when I discovered Naked Nutrition and their line of truly pure, high quality, “naked” protein powders, it was like a breath of fresh air! Naked Nutrition‘s goal is to strip away the marketing and gimmicks that so many companies use and to focus solely on transparency with their products. Products that truly have the purest ingredients. Check out their Grass-Fed Naked Whey Protein Powder. It comes from the milk of cows fed a 100% grass-fed diet from small dairy farms in California. The milk from the cows is non-GMO, non-denatured, and has no rBST or rBGH. The Naked Whey has no artificial sweeteners, flavors, or colors. It’s gluten-free, soy-free, and free of growth hormones. It’s processed in a clean way, as it’s cold processed and uses acid and bleach-free processing. Plus, again there is only one ingredient. It’s awesome!

Unflavored not your thing? They have flavored options that consist of ONLY grass-fed whey, coconut sugar, and either dried strawberries, raw cacao, or vanilla.

Whey Protein Smoothie with Naked Nutrition

Are you a vegan or looking for a dairy-free option? Naked Nutrition has a bunch of other options (that I am seriously DYING to get my hands on!). They include pea protein, organic brown rice protein, goat whey protein, egg white protein, powdered peanut butter, and many more! I’m excited, too, because you can make a simple whey protein smoothie by shaking with water (or even a coconut water, milk, almond milk, etc.), or you can get creative with endless shake and smoothie options, put some in your morning oats, blend in French toast batter, bake into high-protein cakes and cookies, etc.

I wanted to share an absolutely delicious whey protein smoothie that the husband and I have been enjoying lately. It uses Naked Whey protein, frozen cherries and a date for sweetness, cocoa powder, and my new favorite veggie add-in for smoothies: cauliflower! I swear it disguises into the smoothie and you just end up tasting a black forest whey protein smoothie full of fruit, veggies, and that wonderfully pure grass-fed Naked Whey that gives it a luscious, frosty creaminess.

    • Thanks, Megan! Definitely check it out, I was happy to find a protein powder with just one high-quality ingredient!

  1. This smoothie looks fantastic. I am not normally a fan of cauliflower, but using it in a smoothie is such an inventive idea that I am going to have to try it. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Wow, what a great recipe! I have a little one to take care of everyday and it is often times challenging to get in a good breakfast and lunch, especially one with some good protein in it. This smoothie is a great idea. It is quick and filled with protein. Best of all, I can hold my baby in one arm and drink the smoothie with the other, Perfect!

    Thanks for sharing!

    • Anytime – your days sound a lot like mine, so I’m glad you can get a lot of use out of quick and easy recipes like this!

  3. I am always looking for ways to work more vegetables into my, and my kids’, food. This black forest smoothie is perfect! I have already tried it with my little ones and they had a blast watching the cauliflower disappear into the blender. They even commented as to how they didn’t even taste it. As a result, they have started calling it the magic smoothie! Thank you for such a great recipe!

    • No problem – you have to try the Naked Nutrition protein powder, it’s SUCH a great quality protein to use!
