My Milkshake Brings All The Boys To The Yard…

Healthy Recipes

16 April 2013

O.M.F.G. I have created the mother of all smoothies. And it tastes just like a rich, chocolatey, thick, creamy milkshake. Only instead of wanting to sit on the couch with your top pants button undone in a food coma, this will make you want to get your ass out of bed and go for a run.

Filled with good for you protein (pure pea protein powder), vitamins, minerals & antioxidants (hello greens), omega 3’s via the avocado, potassium and fiber from the banana and all 10 essential amino acids, iron and magnesium courtesy of hemp milk (my new fave) this shake is a powerhouse of ingredients that will help you feel and look your very best. It’s extremely nutrient dense , super-filling and tastes amazeballs. Thus if you’re really active or trying to get reluctant family members/friends/ kiddos to get their greens- this drink will do the trick!

Trust me on this one- but if you don’t, trust the MLB (meat-lovin’ boyfriend)- this shake always brings him to the yard (er, kitchen?)!!
