Energy Shakes

This short video shows how to make two kinds of shakes; a protein-based shake for women and a fruit and vegetable smoothie for kids. The recipes are incredibly simple, and perfect for a quick breakfast. I love that they employ omega oils and coconut water, both of which add essential nutrition without packing on too many calories.

The recipe calls for protein powder, and there are many powders available at nutritional supplement stores. Personally, I prefer whey protein, which gives me fewer digestive issues than soy. Because the recipe calls for fruit, I’d stay away from strawberry-flavored powders and stick with vanilla. Body Fortress makes a very affordable, low-calorie vanilla powder that mixes very well with other ingredients. If you’re interested, click on this image and see what you think:
