Protein smoothie turned decadent treat? I think yes.

I’ve been really into smoothie drinking ever since I started my recipe creation partnership with Designer Whey (through FitFluential) about eight months ago. Each month I create four recipes for DW, two of which are smoothies (yes, I am compensated). They sent me about eight giant jugs of Designer Whey Protein Powder to work with, so I literally put it in everything.

To top the smoothie,  I made homemade whipping cream, by simply whipping cream with my hand mixer. Then, I shaved some dark chocolate on top for a little more OOMPH!
