It might not look so great…

But it tastes like health in a glass!  I was a little weirded out when it came out a brownish green color, but when I thought about what went into it, it made sense.  Here’s how to make yourself a health shake….

  1. Add frozen fruit to the blender.  I freeze any of my fruit that is starting to go bad (well, not citrus, I wind up juicing that) to use for these shakes.
  2. Add filtered water to make the right consistency (you’ll figure this out over time).  You can also use juice, but juice is high in sugar so I’ve switched to water.
  3. Then you get to add some extra health!  Here are some options – wheat grass powder, grated ginger, ground flax seeds, protein powder.
  4. Blend and enjoy!  (Even if you wind up with a funky color)

Here’s another shake I make when I need my chocolate fix:

  1. Add a frozen banana to the blender
  2. Add enough almond milk to make a full glass.
  3. Add a dash of vanilla.
  4. Add a scoop of Ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa.
  5. Blend and enjoy! (this one looks good, too.  Just like a chocolate milkshake.)
