It;s that easy!
Notes: I’ve been using this shake recently for extra nutrients and extra calories. I sometimes find it difficult to eat salmon, spinach and eggs at 6:00 am so I’ve been opting for the shake and eating my breakfast an hour or two later.
It’s important that when making a shake like this that you incorporate some nutrient dense foods; spinach and blueberries are among the best there are.
This shake can be manipulated in many ways; you can add more calories; take calories away, swap the fruit, use different milk, use water/ice cubes etc.
But there are some key elements I would recommend in an everyday shake;
- Protein (whey, casein)
- Fat source (flax, coconut oil, nut butter)
I would advise you not to make the shake too heavy in fruit; be conscious of the sugar content, perhaps keep it to 2 fruit and add some vegetables such as spinach and kale.
(Post workout shakes would differ slightly; I would increase the carbohydrate content, reduce the fat element and possibly add creatine. The fruit content would not be an issue PWO)
Note: The shake I’ve recommended may not appeal to you. Trust me; it tastes good. Worst case scenario you don’t like the taste and you swap some ingredients about.
