Whole Food Protein Shake

This shake will power you through the hardest and longest of days.  It is 100% whole, fresh, real food, with a spotlight on healthy fats and potent antioxidants from the blueberries. If you are use to sweet milk shake like smoothies, this is not it! It is meant to keep your blood sugars in check so you can start the morning strong and it one of the components of my 10 Day Jump Start program. 

Makes 1 large serving or 2 servings (if a snack) 

  • 1/2 cup frozen wild blueberries

  • 1/2 cup frozen cranberries

  • 1/4 lemon with rind (optional)

  • 1 tbsp almond butter

  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds

  • 1 tbsp chia seeds

  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds

  • 2 walnuts  

  • 2 Brazil nuts

  • 1/4 avocado

  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

  • 1/2 cup water

Soak pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, walnuts and Brazil nuts in ½ cup water over night.  Combine all of the ingredients in a blender.  Blend on high speed until smooth, about 2 minutes.  If the shake is too thick, add more water until you reach a thick but drinkable consistency.  Makes one shake.
