Chocolate Banana Smoothie – Paleo, Dairy-Free, Pre and Post-Workout

Chocolate and banana go together like peanut butter and jelly!

Which is why I understand the flavor combo created by Rootz Nutrition for their paleo protein superfood powder – which I’ve been LOVING recently (check out my Rootz Nutrition Review)

Sometimes I crave chocolate for breakfast, even more so during my pregnancy.

With the morning sickness and nausea I experienced, sometimes smoothies were the only thing (aside from my pre-natal vitamins) providing the nutrition I needed!

Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie Too!

Of course I want my smoothies to help my community with certain health issues and I’ve been getting a lot of requests for Anti-Inflammatory Smoothies lately.

Rootz protein powder has A LOT of beneficial superfoods for this, but I added a few ingredients also rich in antioxidants, minerals and essential fatty acids to help fight inflammation in this chocolate banana smoothie recipe.

Anti-Inflammatory Foods in Recipe

Chocolate Banana Smoothie Rootz Paleo Protein

Rootz Protein Superfood Blend for Inflammation

The Rootz Superfood Blend used in Rootz protein powder contains blueberries, chia seeds and flax seeds.

Blueberries contain quercetin which is a flavonoid that fights inflammation and cancer! 

Chia seeds and flax seeds are an excellent source of omega 3s and flax seeds are also full of antioxidants.

Rootz Green Detox Blend for Inflammation

The Rootz Green Detox Blend used in Rootz protein powder contains spirulina, chlorella, kale, spinach and broccoli. 

These are ALL nutritional powerhouses, filled with antioxidants, flavanoids, vitamins and minerals to help fight inflammation.

Bananas for Inflammation

Bananas contain antioxidants Vitamin C and manganese to help protect against free-radical damange.

I use banana in the recipe and it’s also part of the Rootz Electrolyte Blend in their protein powder. Double whammy! 😉

Almonds for Inflammation

Almonds contain anti-inflammatory flavonoids and are a concentrated source of heart healthy monounsaturated fats.

Walnuts for Inflammation

Walnuts are an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids in the form of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) as well as heart-healthy monounsaturated fats.
