Coach Dave’s Green Shake

Coach Dave’s Green Shake

Comments are off for this post.

blog article 3, green-shakeDuring  the previous Body Transformation Challenge (BTC), I was asked by several people “what’s in your green shake”?  This healthy, vitamin-and-mineral-packed shake provides me the energy I need to coach classes every night at full speed.   From a nutritional standpoint,  it has 46 grams of high quality protein, three servings of vegetables, and one serving of fruit.  With so many options to customize this shake you simply can’t go wrong when using this as mid-day meal or pre-workout shake.  I mix everything in a blender and drink in a Nalgene bottle topped with ice.

Here is the standard list of ingredients used in this shake.

-1 cup of almond milk

-1 cup of water (or two cups of water if you don’t want the almond milk)

-2 handfuls of raw spinach

-1 red apple

-1/2 cup of carrots

-2 tablespoons of cinnamon

-3 tablespoons of chia seeds

-5 tablespoons of flax meal

-2 scoops of whey protein powder (I’m using Simply Right vanilla protein powder right now)

Variations I have substituted into the shake (in place of one or more ingredients):

-1/2 cup of celery

-1/2 cup of cucumber

-1 cup of strawberries

-1 cup of blueberries

-1 tablespoon of almond butter
