Irresistible Protein Milkshake: Almond Butter

 

I am jumping up and down excited to share this with you today!!!

Recently, I have decided that dairy isn't my stomach's best friend. After completing my first Whole 30, my body is rejecting yogurt, ice cream and cow's milk. This intolerance also includes whey protein. 

 

My quest to find the most delicious plant-based protein led me to Amazing Grass' Protein Superfood. I am already a fan of their Green Superfood powders and was impressed with the ingredients in their protein blend. It is touted as an organic, all-in-one nutrition shake that includes:

20g Plant-Based Protein

7 Alkalizing Greens

2 Full Servings of Fruit and Veggies

<1g of Sugar

 

This shake has everything from wheat grass, alfalfa, spirulina, broccoli, hemp protein, chia, acai, goji......

The list goes on. 

 

However, I am completely sold on the taste!! Seriously. I have tried upwards of 20 types of protein powders and this one takes the cake. I typically use my protein for blended drinks and there wasn't a hint of chalkiness, artificial sweetness or medicinal flavor. 

 

The recipe I am sharing tastes like a decadent dessert, but somehow has all the benefits of superfood greens, raw nuts and antioxidant-rich fruits. Please give this one a go and let me know your thoughts!

 

I plan on creating more delicious shakes recipes to help spice up your morning routine on-the-go or provide a sweet end to your day in lieu of ice cream and cupcakes.

Jess
