Build Your Own Nutrient-Rich Smoothie

I know, I have totally been MIA lately. It's just that the end of my Nutritional Therapy Practitioner program is nearing fast, and I've been totally wrapped up in school work. I haven't had any time to blog, but I figured you guys would understand especially since I am gaining solid nutrition and food knowledge that I can soon share with you! I've decided to quickly share with you guys this versatile recipe for building your own nutrient-rich smoothie. I've been so busy lately that this has been my breakfast in one form or another. I wouldn't normally recommend replacing a meal with a smoothie, however this recipe is so packed full of rich nutrients that I'm letting it slide.

Power Post-Workout Shake

Post Workout Protein ShakeEver feel just totally wiped out after a good workout? Yeah, me too, and I hate it. Sometimes I would go through the rest of my day feeling fatigued and exhausted, but I knew working out should actually be making me feel invigorated and refreshed.

90 Second Paleo Milkshake

IMG_7448_revSometimes you just gotta have something sweet, ya know what I mean? Luckily, with my Paleo Milkshake recipe you can still satisfy your sweet tooth without having to down a sugar-laden dessert. And trust me, I know the sweet tooth can sometimes quickly turn into an emergency situation, but no worries because you can whip this Paleo Milkshake together in just 90 seconds. The frozen bananas here are key. They are the secret behind the sweet flavor as well as the creamy texture. The almond butter and cacao powder blend together so perfectly it will keep you coming back to this recipe time and time again.  A scoop of chocolate protein would be a good substitute for the cacao powder to make this the ultimate post-workout shake. The unsweetened vanilla almond milk is the ideal base, because it gives it a touch of vanilla flavor that takes it over the top. If you don’t have vanilla flavored almond milk, try adding a dash of pure vanilla extract. With only four ingredients, this Paleo Milkshake is something you have got to try. It’s so simple to make, and I promise this creamy, scrumptious Paleo treat will not disappoint your primal palate!
