Ready to upgrade your typical PB and banana smoothie? This smoothie recipe, courtesy of model and actress Catherine McCord, features almond butter and a frozen banana, plus collagen (a protein) and chlorella, a green algae that’s loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids to help boost your immune system, lower cholesterol, keep blood pressure in check, and much more. This recipe keeps McCord fueled even on her most hectic days. Enjoy.

1 scoop collagen peptides

Chocolate, Banana, Almond Butter Smoothie
  1. Throw all ingredients into a blender, in the order shown
  2. Blend until smooth


This smoothie is a great step towards reducing stress and feeling your best all day long, McCord explains. And dietitian and Nutritious Life founder Keri Glassman, who contributed to McCord’s new book, agrees: this smoothie is a solid way to start your day. In spite of its verdant color, it has a luscious, deep chocolate and almond flavor, which completely masks the mild taste of the chlorella. For a deeper chocolate flavor, replace the chocolate protein powder with two teaspoons cacao powder. Either way, this smoothie will fill you up and keep you energized for hours.
