Last Tuesday I posted this photo of the protein shake I made on social media and asked my followers to guess what was making my shake green?

The winner would receive a free copy of my DVD, Undefeated and you could only guess once.  There were a lot of guesses for kale and spinach and a few for greens mix but nobody guessed this superfood. After I revealed what it was I was surprised how many people hadn’t heard of it.  Since I love to educate people I figured I would post about this amazing green superfood the next day.

So what do you think it is?  The answer is…………

Spirulina. Here is the graphic I posted about this superfood.

Now that you’ve educated yourself on a new super food I urge you to try it.  Personally I prefer it in my shakes and with berries so that it can sweeten it up and mask the taste (the smell isn’t very pleasant) but I love all of the benefits it has.  And that makes up for an unpleasant smell any day.

We had a hectic night last night with our youngest waking up late for his feeding and then not being able to go back to sleep until 1:30am and our toddler falling asleep early (5:30pm) and waking up at 12:30am, coming into our youngest’s room and having a party making snow angels on the floor. Thank goodness they both slept straight from that point until this morning.

To energize (and because I didn’t have a lot of time this morning) I made a protein shake.

🔹1/4 organic 1% milk
🔹2 scoops arbonne chocolate protein powder
🔹1 banana
🔹1 cup spinach
🔹1 cup pineapple
🔹1 cup raspberries
🔹1/2 tsp chia seeds
🔹2 tbsp hemp seeds
🔹1 tbsp peanut butter

Add ice if you’re not using frozen fruit and like a cold shake.

Chocolate Berry Protein Shake
🔹1/4 cup organic 1% milk

🔹1/2 cup blueberries

🔹1/2 cup raspberries

🔹1 cup strawberries

🔹1 while banana

🔹1 tbsp hulled hemp seeds

🔹1 tsp ground chia seeds

🔹1 tbsp peanut butter

🔹2 scoops Arbonne chocolate protein powder

I tried adding some mango to my protein shake for dinner because I ran out of strawberries. I was hesitant at first but it turned out to be delish. Here’s the recipe.

  • 1/4 cup organic 1% milk
  • 1 scoop of peanut butter
  • 2 scoops #arbonne protein powder
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • 1 tsp ground chia seeds
  • 1 cup of blueberries
  • 1 cup of mango

My accompaniment with my breakfast this morning. I’m so happy to be back on protein shakes again. Chia and hemp are great sources of omega and will both keep you fuller for longer making you less likely to snack or get hungry an hour later. Adding greens to your shake will pack it full of vitamins and get you 1 serving closer to your daily intake of veggies. Berries are great for added antioxidants and to sweeten up the bitter taste of the spinach (you can also use kale).  Enjoy!
