Metabolism Boosting Chocolate Almond Breakfast Shake

Whether you’re a busy mom or just want to eat healthy and clean, starting your day with a breakfast shake is the optimal way to  keep your metabolism running smooth.  Breakfast shakes are so satisfying and filling plus you can take them on the go!  I consider a breakfast shake an essential part of my morning because:

  1. It’s easy to make.
  2. It primes your metabolism.
  3. It sets you up for a clear, clean pattern of eating for the day.

This three-step process ensures you blend a metabolism boosting breakfast!

Step 1: Begin with Core Shake Ingredients

  • 1 – 2 Scoops High-Quality Protein Powder. Your powder should be between 15-25g of protein, less than 6g of carbohydrate, less than 2 grams of sugar and preferably at least 2 grams of dietary fiber.
    I like whey or pea protein the best.  Here are my two favorites: Whey Protein and Vega Protein & Greens
  • 1 Tablespoon Chia and/or Flax Seed. This adds some healthy omega-3’s and fiber to your shake. {optional}
  • 4–8+ Ounces Dairy-Free Liquid. You may use one liquid alone or a combination of two different liquids (i.e. half water and half unsweetened almond milk). Less liquid may be used if you prefer a thicker consistency to your shake. Add more liquid if you prefer a thinner consistency shake. Dairy-free liquid choices include:  Water, coconut milk or unsweetened plain almond milk.

Step 2: Choose Some Add-Ins

The add-ins will provide you with some awesome nourishment for your day. Adding powerful nutrients in the form of fiber and/or fat will help keep you satiated and satisfied for several hours! Perfect! No snacking on empty calories! I recommend you choose at least 2 items from the list below:

  • 1⁄2 ripe avocado
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1⁄2–1 ounce nuts (i.e. almonds, cashews, walnuts) or 1 TBSP nut or seed butter (i.e. almond or cashew butter)
  • 1 scoop of Green SuperFood or Reds powder
  • 1 Tbsp flax seed Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Hempseed

 

Step3: Blend and Enjoy!
