Green Booster Shake Recipe

So everyone has their own green drink, right? I woke up this morning not feeling quite so energetic, and I thought I'd pump myself up with greens to start my day. You know you can get a pseudo "high" from taking a concentrated amount of greens all at once.

My shake really consists of 4 things:
  • 1 Small Banana (70 calories)
  • Half a Golden Delicious Apple (40 calories)
  • As much spinach as I can fit into the blender (about 30 calories)
  • Half a cup of Organic Unsweetened Soy Milk (about 40 calories)
  • Water to get to whatever consistency I am in the mood for

Remember the blender I talked about yesterday? I blended it all up, and got this green goodness. The spinach barely contains any calories, and the apple is to give it that tang (plus, an apple a day keeps the doctor away, right?). The banana is obviously to give it a little sweetness and the potassium in the banana helps protect your muscles from cramps if you exercise hard. The soy milk is for a little protein and creamy consistency.

That's a total of about 180 calories and gave me 2 full glasses. That's not a bad breakfast, right? Try it and enjoy!

Cheers Eights & Weights!
