Plant-Based Protein: 310 Strawberry Shake
This recipe starts off with a scoop of 310 Strawberry Shake! This meal replacement shake not only tastes like a classic strawberry milkshake (with a tropical twist), but it also benefits for your health – as well as your weight loss goals. This yummy shake includes three types of plant-based protein, (pea, brown rice, and hemp), that all help improve health, assist with weight loss, and reduce risk of disease, compared to animal-based proteins.
In addition to having plant-based proteins, the 310 Strawberry Shake also includes a vitamin and mineral blend; This includes 30% of the recommended daily value for essential vitamins A, E, and D, as well as vital minerals including magnesium, calcium, and folate to support bone health and a strong immune system, among other benefits.
Naturally-sweetened with plant-based Stevia, you can easily curb your sugar cravings in a way that also fuels your body with this delicious recipe! 310 Strawberry Shake adds a touch of fruity, tangy sweetness to any shake recipe, but gives this Very Berry Coconut Shake an exciting burst of flavor!
Loaded with Antioxidants: Mixed Berries
The next ingredient in this recipe is mixed berries! Did you know blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries have the highest amounts of antioxidants next to pomegranates? Antioxidants help fight free radicals (unstable molecules that can damage your cells), and these powerful plant compounds may also help reduce your risk of various diseases, when included in a balanced, healthy diet, while greatly boosting your immune system.
In addition to literally bursting with antioxidants, berries are also a great source of fiber. Fiber can help increase feelings of fullness through slowing the movement of food through your digestive tract, so you feel more satiated and less likely to reach for unhealthy snacks in between meals. This shake is therefore the perfect drink to incorporate into your day to keep you both satisfied and energized!
Healthy Fats for an Energy Boost: MCT Oil
Next, to assist with energy and mental focus, MCT oil is a terrific ingredient to incorporate into your diet! The fats in MCT oil are unique in the sense that your body can quickly absorb them and convert them into energy – which can result in a boost in physical performance and mental clarity. Having MCT oil before a workout could also be beneficial to help improve your endurance and stamina!
