How to Turn a Smoothie Into a Super Shake

Posted on Nov 10, 20

It is recommended to have one serving of fruits and vegetables with your meals but quite a few will struggle to achieve this. Here’s a way to increase your vegetable intake without eating handfuls of spinach throughout the day.

 

Start with a liquid. 4-8 ounces of water, milk, soy milk or almond milk.

 

Choose a Protein Powder. You can choose whey, casein or an option that suits you.

 

Pick a vegetable. 1- 2 handfuls of dark leafy greens (spinach, swiss chard, kale), pumpkin/sweet potato, cucumber/celery.

 

Choose a fruit. Try apples, bananas, berries, cherries.

 

Add a healthy fat. 1-2 thumb sized portions. Good choices are walnuts, cashews, peanut and nut butters.

 

End with a topper. A little can go a long way! Try coconut, dark chocolate, yogurt.

 

This Super Shake is an amazing and easy way to add extra servings of fruits and vegetables into your day. Plus, you can pack it with all the other macro nutrients you need such as high-quality protein, healthy fats and also fiber. All mixed up in one container and easy to take on the go!
