My new FAV protein shake!

I love to mix up my protein shakes and I will continue to bring you new and exciting recipes.
Todays shake has become one of my favorites, mostly because I know I am getting so many amazing benefits in just one shake! The secert ingredient is Spinach!

adding spinach to shakes! It is a rich source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Magnesium, and it is packed with antioxidants! This green shake will increase digestive efficiency, balance your body's PH, support weight loss, boost your immune system & mental performance, support your liver and kidney function and increase your energy! And don't worry you can hardly taste the spinach!

What you will need:
- Blender
- 1-2 scoops (depends on your brand) Vanilla protein powder – Please get what protein is best for you, best sourced through a nutritionist, personal trainer or health store
- 1/3 cup Ice
- 1 cup Filtered water
- 1 handful Organic Spinach (using frozen spinach is also ok)
- 1 cup Wild Blueberries
- 1/2 a Banana

This shake can also be a nice healthy alternative for breakfast or a snack at any time of the day!
(Make sure to have your ‘after workout’ protein shake within 20 mins of exercise, the reason this is important is because your body is starting to heal the muscle right after a workout, taking protein at that time will give the body fuel it needs to heal and grow)
