Green is the New Shake

Green Shake

There are so many variations on the green smoothy that I could do a whole site on them—lucky for me, that’s been done here  and here. So this is my take on a high protein vegetable-based MRP. Keeps you going for hours, boosts mood, endurance and energy and is generally the most awesome way to get your green on. Ingredients:

  • 1 cup light coconut milk or coconut water or oat or almond milk
  • 1-2 cups chopped kale or spinach or combo
  • 1/2 to 1/3 cup chopped banana or pineapple
  • 1 tsp high quality Spirulina
  • 1 scoop MyoPure Whey Protein Isolate.
  • filtered water or ice to taste

Add all (in order specified, liquids first) to a high quality blender, dare I suggest the Blendtec Wildside and blend until smooth and creamy. green-smoothie

Optional extras:

  • 1/3 cup yoghurt (in addition to or more if you prefer to replace other liquids, contains valuable probiotics )
  • 1/3 cup oat bran or rolled oats (for added energy and carbs, lowers cholesterol)
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley (immunity)
  • !/4 cup frozen berries or goji berries (for added anti-oxidant boost)
  • 1/4 cup organic coconut oil OR 1/2 an avocado (for energy)
  • pinch cinnamon and 1/2 tsp honey for digestion, flavor and immunity
  • knob of fresh young ginger (digestion)
  • 1/2 lemon (for detox and fat loss)
  • 1 tsp chia seed (good for endurance and pre-workout)
