Actually Enjoy Your Greens With This Strawberry Protein Shake
If you’re serious about eating your greens but you just struggle to fit them in to your daily eating plan, you’ll love this protein shake!
You won’t guess by the taste, but it contains a whole serving of spinach to make sure you’re hitting your daily nutritional needs.
Spinach is a nutrient-dense, low calorie food that’s high in vitamin K, A, manganese, folate, calcium, iron and fibre.
Since the taste doesn’t come from the greens, it’s the banana, strawberry and vanilla almond milk that’ll make your taste buds happy!
The fruit also provides you with some natural sugars to replenish your glycogen stores after a tough workout while the protein powder will kick-start muscle recovery.
Almond milk is a great, dairy free alternative to add a creaminess to this shake and give you a good dose of healthy fats.
The vitamin E contained in almond milk is particularly good for promoting healthy skin, hair and nails.
It’s also an excellent source of potassium, phosphorus, zinc and manganese.
With healthy carbohydrates, protein, fats, vitamins and minerals this recipe is also suitable as a meal replacement for anyone on the run. Don’t let the colour deter you!
This sweet and delicious shake doesn’t make you compromise on taste for the sake of your health.
