4 SUPER SHAKE RECIPES – GLUTEN FREE

We love a super shake – you can pack a ton of nutrients into a convenient, easy to make shake! They’re great for breakfast, lunch, a meal on the go or even a snack. We’ve got three super shake recipes for you plus a super easy way to prep them ahead of time so you can grab, blend and go.

 

EASY PROTEIN SHAKE MEAL PREP

We honestly can not thing of an easier way to prep these super food meals! All you need to do is grab your ingredients and pop them into a ziplock bag (or bag/container of your choice), freeze and use when you’re ready. It makes life so much easier when you can prep ahead of time so that when you’re ready to eat, all you have to do is grab your meal and blend.

Meal prep works for most meals – not just super shakes. It’s a fantastic way to get ahead of the game and when life throws a curve ball, it doesn’t matter because you’re already prepared. Preparing protein, cutting veggies and fruit, portioning out pre made full meals and planning your meals are so helpful when you’re busy, eating multiple times a day or need to pre portion for weight loss reasons. Most of us are time starved so we’ll take all the help we can get!

Prep Ahead:

Shakes are easily prepped and stored either in the refrigerator or freezer. This makes for super simple meal prep and grab and go breakfasts, lunches or snacks.

Throw all ingredients except protein powder in your storage bags or containers and refrigerate or freeze until ready to use. When ready to use throw ingredients in bag, protein powder and liquid base of your choice into a blender and blend until smooth.

Freezing: Because your ingredients will be frozen, you’ll most likely only need to blend with liquid base of your choice. Use extra ice if you like a thicker shake. You might have to play around with your ice/water combination for your desired consistency.

 

Substitutions:

Feel free to make any substitutions necessary. Here are a few to get you started…

  • Protein Powder – Greek Yogurt, Almond Milk, Hemp Protein Powder

  • Pumpkin Seeds – Sunflower Seeds or Nuts

  • Cashews or Almonds – Walnuts, Pecans, Brazil Nuts

  • Spinach or Kale – Mustard Greens, Chard

  • Hemp Seeds or Flax – Chia Seeds, Coconut Oil, Nut Oils
