Perfectly-Balanced Meal Replacement: 310 Vanilla Shake
To create a shake that’s reminiscent of a classic milkshake, minus the high calories and carbs, we’re using 310 Vanilla! This luscious meal replacement shake powder contains 15g of plant-based proteins, 20 essential vitamins and minerals, and 5g of dietary fiber to keep you full and energized for your Valentine’s Day adventures!
You can count on this protein powder to indulge your sweet tooth, as well as provide your body with vital nutrients that will boost your metabolism, keep you full and satisfied, peak your energy and concentration, and support total body wellness. Free of sugar, soy, gluten, dairy, and artificial ingredients, you can feel confident that you’re nourishing your mind and body with the cleanest, most allergen-friendly choices.
Bursting with Antioxidants: Mixed Berries
The next superfood ingredient in this recipe is mixed berries! Packed with plentiful antioxidants, berries (including strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries), help protect your cells against free radicals, boosting your internal defenses.
In excess, free radicals can cause unhealthy inflammation and may even play a role in heart disease and other illnesses – so it’s important to consume lots of foods that are high in antioxidants, (and this shake is full of them)! In addition, berries are also high in vitamin C, manganese, and dietary fiber to promote glowing skin, and healthy immune and digestive systems!
Healthy, Motivating Fats: MCT Oil
Next, this ingredient is especially beneficial if you’re following a low-carb or keto diet. You can boost your energy levels and support your optimal brain health with MCT Oil – which also can help kick your body into ketosis, or a high fat-burning state.
The added MCT fats in this recipe are absorbed quickly once consumed, providing natural, virtually-instant energy for your body and brain. This not only can give you that extra push in your workouts, but it can also help you be more productive in your daily functions, and feel more motivated to follow-through on your clean eating and weight loss goals.
Not to mention that MCT Oil is also a highly-satiating fat that will definitely help keep you full after enjoying this decadent Very Berry Keto Smoothie!
