A great way to start your day is with fruit, nuts and fiber. This simple-to-make shake will keep your energy up and your digestion happy.
Your Daily Fiber Intake In A Delicious Shake
This shake is shock-full of powerful ingredients. Raspberries are rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients (which lowers oxidative stress and reduces inflammation). All of the ingredients combined will give you a healthy dosage of:
- Vitamins A, C, and E
- Minerals (magnesium and calcium)
- Omega-3 (EPA and DHA)
- Healthy fats
You want to incorporate fiber into your daily routine because it helps aid digestion. I am not saying that this is the only recipe, but the benefits are great. You can drink it daily for a week, take a break, and then repeat the routine on the following week. The coconut oil alone has uncountable benefits; it improves immunity on the microscopic elements of your cells and adds radiance to your skin.
Ingredients (all organic):
1½ cups unsweetened almond milk (you can make it yourself!)
1 tablespoon of coconut oil (unrefined)
1½ cups frozen or fresh raspberberries
1 tablespoon almond butter
2 tablespoons ground flaxseeds
1 tablespoon of maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Add all the ingredients into a high-speed blender container. Blend until all of the seeds have disappeared and the shake has a smooth texture. Serve immediately.
You can store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days in an air-tight glass container. I recommend an 18 oz. Mason jar. Before consuming, all you need to do is shake it well in the sealed jar.
You will need:
A high-speed blender. I use Blendtec.
