HIGH PERFORMANCE PLANT-POWERED SHAKE

WARNING:  This High Performance Plant-Powered Shake is NOT for the faint of heart. This is my go-to morning shake recipe that is formulated to provide all the energy and building blocks needed for the serious endurance athlete looking to fuel and recover from their intense workouts.

Ok… I might be laying it on a little thick… To be honest, I came up with this shake recipe for my hubs (Michael), who’s an athlete but also a bottom-less pit that needs a crazy amount of energy to fuel even his body’s most basic needs, let alone his workouts!   This morning shake recipe initially started out rather simply, but has evolved over time into a powerhouse of plant-based superfoods that our morning routine cannot go without.  So for all the people in Michael’s office who see him slurping these down each morning and are wondering what on Earth is in there… Now you know!

Oh, and don’t judge a shake by it’s colour… this shake actually tastes GREAT, and is probably one of the most nutritious meals you can start your day off with.    Check it out!
