Oh, red velvet. How do we love thee? Let us count the ways: it's chocolatey, but not overwhelmingly bitter. It's eye-catching, but not ostentatious. It's a creamy and delicious flavour that needn't only be reserved for the likes of cupcakes and cookies. You too can drink a delightfully decadent red velvet smoothie for your pre-workout without regrets, just happiness. In this recipe by PumpUp member xxzxcuzx_me, ripe bananas and coconut milk creamer lend a thick and creamy texture to the drink while chocolate hemp protein powder imparts a distinctly velvety flavour. You can have your cake and eat it too.
