Simplicity is the key to staying on track with health, particularly in the depth of summer when everyone is making a dash for the outdoors.
One of my tricks to ensuring I get enough nutrients all summer long is to sip on protein shakes.
Egg white protein is my personal favorite as egg is considered a complete food and provides the body with numerous health benefits. That said, if you are allergic to egg like Melissa, or simply prefer other options, there are other great Paleo protein powders, such as collagen protein and cricket protein.
This particular protein shake is one of the simplest to whip up. It’s a perfect way to indulge in summer fruit and takes just a minute to make. Plus, peaches are rich in vitamin C, potassium and dietary fiber to give you a mid-summer health boost.
5 ice cubes
1 cup coconut milk
1 scoop protein powder of your choice (ideally a Paleo protein of course!)
1 peach, de-pipped and chopped
Place all the ingredients in a blender and pulse for about a minute, or until well blended.
Pour into a tall glass and enjoy chilled, in true-summer style, through a colorful straw!
