As we dive deeper into the spring season, with even warmer weather on the way, you may find yourself missing your favorite frozen yogurt, smoothie, or ice cream shop right now. After all, what’s more refreshing than an occasional frozen sweet treat? Luckily, you can make your own frozen superfood dessert with this Acai Cherry Protein Shake – offering immense flavor and nutrients, while tasting just like a guilty treat - satisfying your cravings for sugar in a clean way!
This Acai Cherry Shake is made with a blend of 310 Strawberry Shake, unsweetened almond milk, frozen acai, frozen cherries, and chia seeds – creating a creamy, nutrient-dense smoothie that supports optimal wellness. In fact, the antioxidants in this shake can help support the body’s defenses, and the balanced ingredients make it a great choice for an energizing snack or meal replacement any time of day.
Before we get into the full recipe, let’s look at a few of the stand-out health benefits that this Acai Cherry Shake has to offer!
Bold Berry Taste: 310 Strawberry Shake
The first ingredient to provide this recipe with its “fruity foundation” is a scoop of 310 Strawberry Shake! This meal replacement powder adds thickness and big berry flavor to the Acai Cherry Smoothie, making it similar to a classic ice cream shake. Although 310 Strawberry Shake may taste like an indulgence, it offers superior nutrition, with plant-based protein, vitamins, minerals, organic superfoods, and even probiotics.
In addition, due to the plant-based proteins and superfoods, 310 Strawberry Shake is also high in fiber, which can help promote fullness and satiety between meals. Each serving of 310 Shake offers 15g of high-quality protein, 5g of dietary fiber, and 1g of fat per serving – giving you the three major macronutrients, for only 90 calories per shake.
Furthermore, 310 Strawberry Shake contains 20 essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, E, and D, and minerals such as magnesium, zinc, calcium, and potassium. If you find it hard to get enough servings of veggies in your daily meals, 310 Shakes can help – as they also contain a greens blend with organic superfoods including spinach, broccoli, kale, spirulina, and beet juice.
Flavorful Source of Antioxidants: Frozen Acai
The next ingredient to highlight in this recipe is frozen acai! This superfood fruit has a short shelf life and is therefore often sold as a frozen puree or powder so you can enjoy it, (and reap the nutritional benefits) in acai bowls or smoothies! In general, acai has an earthy, deep berry flavor that pairs especially well with 310 Strawberry Shake.
Aside from giving this shake immense flavor, acai berries are loaded with antioxidants, which may help the body fight against free radicals, and in turn, prevent against sickness and disease.
Fiber and Nutrient-Rich Fruit: Frozen Cherries
Finally, the last ingredient we’re highlighting in this recipe is frozen cherries – which are already pitted so you can easily toss them into this Acai Cherry Shake! Cherries are incredibly nutrient-dense and are especially rich in fiber, vitamin C, as well as other vitamins and minerals, to help your body function optimally. In addition, similar to acai berries, cherries are also rich in antioxidants to help promote overall health and good immunity.
