We live in a competitive world where time is money. Most of us have hectic schedules and forget eating small frequent meals. There are a lot of others who find it impossible to eat 3 meals a day.
If you are someone who is hard pressed for time, then you should try this “Super Nutritious Shake”. And the best part is it takes less than 10 minutes to make.
What is this Super Nutritious Shake?
The Super Nutritious Shake is a combination of high-quality protein, fibre, good fats, antioxidants (and more) put together in an amazingly tasty formula that ensures you get all the nutrients to kickstart your day.
How do I make this Super Nutritious Shake?
Let me answer that question right away without keeping you wondering:
The first and most important thing you need, to make this Super Nutritious Shake, is a good blender. A good blender is a great investment for your health. A good blender should not cost you more than 40USD.
Ok now, moving on to the steps.
Here are the steps to prepare your Super Nutritious Shake:
If you like cold shakes, start with “Ice”
If you like thick shakes, then add only 1 to 3 cubes of ice. If you like your shake to be thick like a pudding, then double the ice cubes to 6 to 8. (Sounds a little awkward? Try it out. It works! I talk with practical experience)
Step 2: Add half cup of “Fruit”
Add half cup of any Fruit you like: Apple, Strawberry, Orange, blackberry etc to the blender. If you want to have a large portion, add one cup of your favorite Fruit.
Step 3: Time for some “Veggies”
It might feel ‘Yuck’ to add veggies to your shake but trust me if you add the right one, you will feel you never tasted them in your shake. It will seem as if the veggie never existed, plus, you get the nutrients from these veggies.
My pick for the veggies is one or a combination of these: Spinach, Broccoli, Squash and Powdered Green.
If not wanting the taste of the veggies is your number one criteria, then Spinach is your best friend. Add half cup of Spinach to your shake and you will feel the Spinach was never a part of your shake.
Step 4: Throw a Scoop of your Favorite “Protein Powder”
Add a scoop of your favorite protein powder. I personally love a great tasting milk protein blend. My other favorite protein in terms of taste is “Myofusion”. I’m sure you would all have your own preferences. Add the one you like the most. Try experimenting with flavors too. You can try adding a Vanilla or a Strawberry flavored protein powder.
Step 5: Time for some “Nuts”
Add at least two to three tbsp of either: Walnuts, Cashews, Almonds or one tbsp of flaxseed to this shake. Make sure you hit the store and stack your favorite nuts.
Step 6: Last but not the least “Liquid”
Add a cup of fluid to this shake. You can choose to add either water, chilled Green Tea or Unsweetened almond. Whatever you choose to add make sure you are adding around a cup of your desired liquid.
You can add toppings to this shake. Following are the options for toppings:
3. Ground Coffee Beans
4. Cinnamon and
5. Vanilla Extract
You can always experiment with a few things here and there.
Now isn’t that a perfect nutrient rich shake to start your day?
