Most of us want to look like Jessica Alba without trying too hard. Unlike Jessica Alba, though, we have 9-5 office cubicles next to vending machines with BoltHouse Farms and Frusion Fruit Smoothies — which may sound delish but are actually full of sugar and no nutrition.
Don’t fret! If you’re still trying to lose a few pounds but don’t want to miss out on Tinseltown’s milkshakes, we have a few recipes for you to shake things up a little:
Tropical Breeze Protein Shake
Nostalgic for the Bahamas? Take vanilla (1 scoop), protein powder, splintered coconut (1 teaspoon), pineapple in a frozen form (1 cup), almond milk (1 cup) and blueberries in a frozen form (1/2 cup). Mix them well in a blender for half a minute and enjoy.
Protein Shake with Banana
Bananas are your base for this recipe. Take banana (1), orange juice in a squeezed form (12-16 ounces), egg white, vanilla (2 scoops), milk, protein powder, flaxseed (1 tablespoon) and Greek yoghurt (1/4 cup). Mix them in a blender for half a minute.
Low-Calorie Shake with Brandy and Berry
Not fussed about protein, but just want a low-calorie slurp? Take vanilla, ice-cream, berries (blueberries, blackberries and strawberries), milk and brandy. Then blend them together to get this fabulous weight loss shake.
Healthy Pumpkin Pie Shake
Who doesn’t love pumpkin for fall? For this shake, you will need vanilla, ice-cream, sugar, spice of pumpkin pie, pumpkin and milk.
Green Pina Colada Protein Shake
What better way to end your day than with a Pina Colada? Take a frozen banana, frozen mango (1/2 cup), coconut oil (1 tablespoon), protein (1 scoop), frozen pineapples (1/2 cup) and spinach. Mix well and enjoy!
