The Ultimate Protein Shake

by | May 15, 2014 | 0 comments

I am often asked to share what I put in my protein shake.  I am going to share with you my favourite, go-to shake recipe that will give you a burst of nutrients and keep you full for hours.  This is a great breakfast or post-workout meal!

I don’t measure, but I will give you some rough estimates as to how much of each ingredient to put into your ultimate shake.

  • Unsweetened almond milk (1/2 cup-1 cup)
  • Protein powder (1 scoop) *I use Raw Protein by Garden of Life in chocolate – it is easy to digest and delicious.
  • Chia seeds (2 tbsp) for for fibre, calcium and omega 3s
  • Cinnamon (1 tsp) for blood sugar stabilization
  • 1/4 frozen banana
  • A few frozen berries – keep the sugar content down by limiting the amount of fruit you put in
  • A handful of frozen greens (spinach, kale) or wheatgrass powder for their detoxifying/alkalizing effect
  • Cacao beans (3-4) or a small handful of cacao nibs for magnesium
  • Almond butter (1tbsp) or 1/2 an avocado for some good fats

Blend it up!

Warning, this is a very thick shake, so I often have to slowly add more almond milk to allow it to blend.  I like to feel like I’m actually eating something as opposed to drinking my meal so I keep the consistency thick and eat it with a spoon.

This shake is delicious and FULL of amazing nutrition! Enjoy 🙂
