With so many ready-to-drink, high sugar smoothies available in the market, making the best smoothie can get confusing. For getting big and staying lean, try our “super shake” recipe.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1. Quality Protein Source
Protein helps to maintain healthy blood sugar levels, aid in recovery and promote muscle growth. Always look for ones that have minimal additives such as sugar and other fillers.
2. Green-Food Powder
Spirulina, chlorella and wheatgrass are green-food powders and make up for the lack of nutrients that you don’t get from convenience foods. These are nutrient-dense foods would make your ?super-shake’ extremely hearty and healthy.
3. Healthy, Smart Fats
Omegas and other essential fats are crucial for brain function, improving other body functions. Adding 1-2 tbsp of nut butters like almond, and peanut are delicious and rich in monounsaturated fats, making your joints and muscles lubricated.
4.Fresh Fruit Juice
Packaged fruit juices don’t contain fiber that the flesh and skin of fresh fruits have. Plus because of all the sugar, they are calorie-rich and should be avoided. By using fresh fruits you not only mask the veggie flavor, but also get big burst of antioxidants.
