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!

Watermelon Smoothie

Standard

Contrary to popular believe, the watermelon is not all water and little else. Watermelons have a good amount of vitamins, minerals and essential amino acids.

When picking a watermelon, go for one that is fully ripe: typically one that has darker skin and darker flesh. The riper the watermelon the more lycopene it provides. Lycopene is a phytonutrient that supports cardiovascular health.

Another content of the watermelon that is currently being researched due to scientific interest is citrulline. Citrulline converts to arginine in the body, which assist with blood flow. It’s thought that the more arginine produced the less fat can be stored in cells, consequently helping with detoxification and weight loss.

Benefits aside, watermelon makes for a refreshing summer treat and in this nutrient-packed smoothie, provides natural energy to get you through the day.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup watermelon
1 small banana
1/4 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1 teaspoon Chia seeds
Ice

RECIPE

Place the ice cubes in a blender and blend until crushed.
Add the banana, watermelon, blueberries and Chia seeds and blend for about a minute, until liquified.
Pour into a large glass or to-go cup and enjoy while cool.

Quick, tasty and nutritious. Drink up!
