One of the great benefits of making your own protein shake recipes, is that you actually know what the ingredients are when you make the shake yourself. There are so many protein’s and weight loss shakes on the market with ingredients you can’t pronounce, we feel it’s best to avoid those and make your own with all natural ingredients.
One of our favourite mantras here at 180 Nutrition is ‘Eat Real Food’. So we always encourage people to start cutting out the chemicals, artificial flavouring and sweeteners found in many so called ‘health’ products like protein shakes found in a a tub at your local health store.
This doesn’t mean that you have miss out on the convenience a shake brings. The reality is you can make your own with a blender and keep all the ingredients natural without the stuff that’s made in a laboratory, and have all the major health benefits using completely natural ingredients brings!
Here is a healthy example of a protein shake recipe and one I have most morning instead of a processed carb loaded breakfast:
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 x 50g scoop of 180 coconut flavour superfood protein
- 1 handful of fresh spinach
- 1/2 cup frozen berries
- 2 tablespoons plain yogurt
- handful of pecans
This recipe is not only delicious, it literally takes to minutes to make and is completely natural. Give it a go, you won’t be disappointed.
