Health Shake Recipe

Posted in Health & Food on August 28, 2009 by daviddiel

I find myself drinking shakes often these days. Here’s what I put in them:

Main ingredients:
Organic Milk, Lactaid, or Soy Milk (whole or 2%)
Frozen fruit (berries, bananas, peach, pineapple)
Nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew)
Cold water or ice (for desired thickness)

Optional food ingredients:
Yogurt (plain or all natural vanilla)
Juice (pomegranite, berry, or grape for sweetness)
Ground flax seeds (Spectrum)
Flax oil (Spectrum)

Optional powdered supplements:
Protein powder (Biochem 100% whey, one scoop)
Niacin (Solaray, 100mg/day, dumped out of the capsules)
Alive! multi-vitamin and mineral powder (half-scoop)
Vitamin C (Emergen-C)
Calcium powder (crushed Caltrate chewables)
