Fruit- Keep it healthy. Instead of adding sugar and ice cream to your shake, opt for natural sweeteners like honey. If you prefer a thicker shake, add nonfat yogurt. Throw in your favorite fresh or frozen fruit in the blender for a sweet treat that’s sure to please!
Veggie- If you’re using fresh vegetables, make sure to wash them before tossing in the blender. If you have a food processor, you can use just about any vegetable you want. I like to make my shakes with carrots, spinach, kale, and flax seed. You can then mix the veggies with soy milk, coconut milk, or yogurt.
Protein- If your stuck on the taste of fruit and veggie shakes, simply add a cup of whey protein to your recipe. Whey protein can also be added to peanut butter, skim milk, and bananas. After a workout, I mix a cup of whey protein with almond milk.
