My Go-To Green Protein Shake

Hi guys,

Just finished a hard workout and need a quick but delicious protein shake? (I know I do!) Look no further my friends! Because today, I’m sharing my favourite go-to shake.

Come to Mama!

Ingredients

2 cups water
1 scoop of protein powder
2 cups of spinach
1/2 TBSP coconut oil
2 drops of stevia
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp xanthan gum
5-6 ice cubes

Hello coconut froth!

*Adding the coconut oil added so much more froth to my smoothie! If you haven’t tried adding it to your smoothie, I urge you to do it…NOW!

Directions

1. Place you water, protein powder, spinach, coconut oil, cinnamon and stevia in the blender and MIX
2. Once everything is well blended, add in the ice cubes and xanthan gum
3. Blend until fully smooth
4. ENJOY my friends

Look how much it makes!

It makes TWO bowls for me!! SCORE! I can’t lie, I like volume (which is why I use two cups of water) you may want to use less water but this is perfect for me!

I don’t know if you noticed but my blender is actually cracked….noooo!

Boo:(

I was washing it about 3 weeks ago and it slipped out of my hands and it cracked:( It still works but I’m worried of it completely breaking on me. Andrew mentioned that I may be able to purchase the glass part alone from Breville. *fingers crossed* this blender was NOT cheap!

Ok back to the shake. I add 1/2 TBSP of Chocolate Chia Goodness for an extra bit of good fat and crunch:) mmmm

ch-ch-ch-chia!

Spoon it up my friends!

After Workout Protein PERFECTION

What’s your Go-To Protein Shake Recipe?

Much Love,
Jess

    That looks more like a soup then a smoothie!!

    Where did you buy your coconut oil from?

  • Truly Jess

    Health store:)

    Did it have a crunchy top? I love the thickness of smoothies, but I’ve never purchased xanthate gum, I should. It’d make a world of difference I’d imagine.

    The chia does give it a nice crunch. If you let it sit, it makes it more of a tapioca texture.
    Xanthan Gum gives SO much smoothness and thickness to your smoothie – I would definitely advise you to try it!

    I’ve never used (or even seen!) xanthan gum before but I’ve seen it mentioned a lot. I would like to make creamier smoothies. Mine this morning tasted a bit too much like a bowl of spinach haha.

    I think having it in a bowl seems a good idea- seems more like a meal/snack than a drink.
