The Super Shake Template

STEP 1: Pick a liquid

• Water

• Almond milk (unsweetened)

• Cow’s milk

• Soy milk (unsweetened)

• Iced green tea

• Hemp milk (unsweetened)

• Coffee (for a morning shake)

You can also add crushed ice if you want a frosty

shake, or leave it out. The less liquid you use, the

thicker the shake will be.

STEP 2:

Pick a protein powder

• Whey protein

• Egg white protein

• Rice protein

• Pea protein

• Hemp protein

• Other proteins or protein blend

Some protein powders have thickeners added.

This will increase the thickness of your shake. Find

a protein supplement that you digest well and enjoy

the taste of. You can also use plain Greek yogurt or

cottage cheese instead of protein powder.

STEP 3: Pick a fruit

• Berries

• Bananas

• Pitted cherries

• Apples

• Pineapple

• Mango

• Papaya

• Powdered fruit supplement

You can use fresh or frozen fruit. Any fruit you like.

STEP 4: Pick a vegetable

• Dark leafy greens: spinach / Swiss chard / kale

• Cooked pumpkin or butternut squash

• Cooked sweet potato

• Beets

• Cucumber

• Celery

• Powdered greens supplement

• Avocado

Spinach and celery are good bets, as they’re virtually flavorless

in your shake. Canned pumpkin is great too. It goes well with

vanilla. When using beets, try roasting and removing the skin

first. They go well with chocolate. If you add celery / cucumber,

make sure to adjust the amount of liquid you add.

STEP 5: Pick a healthy fat

• Walnuts / cashews / almonds

• Peanut, natural peanut butter, other nut butters

• Flax, hemp, and chia seeds

• Coconut milk

• 1/4 to 1/2 avocado

Use 1-3 thumbs of fat, depending on your needs. Avocado

in particular will give your shake a creamy consistency.

STEP 6: Blend that sucker up

STEP 7: Pick a topper (optional)

• Shredded unsweetened coconut

• Cacao nibs or grated dark chocolate

• Yogurt

• Oats, granola

• Cinnamon

If you want to get fancy, sprinkle something on top of your

shake. A little goes a long way. Cinnamon is good with

vanilla and pumpkin. Add oats if you need extra carbs, or

yogurt if you want more protein and smoother consistency.
