Superfood Shake

Superfood Shake
Standard

It’s not often that the morning goes by without me whipping up a Superfood Shake to boost my nutrient intake, and subsequently, my energy!

Because the ingredient list in this shake is packed with a variety of lesser-known and therefore harder to locate Superfoods, I’ve hesitated sharing this recipe, as you know how we like to keep things simple :)…but after being asked by numerous co-workers what I’m putting in my tasty morning concoction, I finally gave in…

So here it is – my personal favorite (and rather addicting) Superfood Shake recipe!

INGREDIENTS

6 cubes of ice
3 dates, pitted
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 teaspoon egg-white protein powder
1 teaspoon cacao powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon instant coffee grinds (or a shot of espresso and a little less coconut milk)
1/2 teaspoon maca powder
1/2 teaspoon matcha green tea powder

RECIPE

This is where it’s easy – just place all the ingredients in a blender and pulse for about a minute until well blended.

Pour into a large glass and enjoy while chilled.

And then start your day by giving yourself a pat on the back – knowing that you have given your body a boost of superfoods containing antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that your body needs.

Protein shakes are a great way to start the day and an excellent boost for the afternoon. With just a few ingredients, a basic egg white protein powder shake can be turned into a delicious milkshake-like treat, without the dairy.

This Protein Shake is packed with nutrients, as well as a caffeine pick-me-up. The cinnamon and cacao provide antioxidant protection against free radicals and the almond butter adds healthy fat while providing a creamy base for shake. Best of all, it takes about 2 minutes to make!

INGREDIENTS

6 ice cubes
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 scoop egg white protein powder
1 heaped tablespoon almond butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 heaped teaspoon cacao powder
1 shot espresso

RECIPE

Place all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse for about a minute until smooth.
Pour into a tall glass and enjoy your morning boost.

It’s really that simple! Enjoy this tasty and nutritious boost to your day,

Strawberry-Chocolate Paleo Protein Shake

Strawberry Chocolate Paleo Protein Shake
Standard

Gone are the days of the traditional post-workout drinks. We said goodbye to soy a long time ago, along with the other artificial-ingredient packed protein shakes on the market. I also avoid dairy, so whey protein is not really an option either, though if you do decide to stick with whey, there are some excellent grass-fed whey proteins on the market. But better yet is egg-white protein powder (not that the yolk is bad!) and collagen protein powder. Both make equally good substitutes to the more traditional soy and whey options and, when mixed into a Shake like in this recipe, it would be hard-pressed to tell the difference…

INGREDIENTS

4 ice cubes
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 scoop (20-30 grams) protein powder (I like MRM All Natural Egg-White Protein and Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides)
1/4 cup strawberries
1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon honey or raw agave nectar

RECIPE

Place all the ingredients into a blender or food processor.

Strawberry Chocolate Paleo Protein Shake Process
Blend for about 1 minute.
Pour into a tall glass and enjoy while cool.

Strawberries provide an immune boost, cacao powder delivers antioxidants, protein powder helps your muscles heal and grow and baking soda balances out the acidity in your body.

Here’s to you, your health and your workout!
