Check out some of these simple recipes to create the ultimate shake:

Banana-Pecan Protein Shake:

Ingredients

  • 1 frozen ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup plain oatmeal, uncooked
  • 1/4 cup pecansAccording to Dr. Joanne Mumola Williams, PhD nutritionist and author of Health Begins in the Kitchen, “Fiber can make you feel full longer, stabilize your blood sugar, and naturally curb your appetite. Dietary fiber also protects against colorectal cancer and reduces the risk of coronary heart disease.”
  • 1 scoop vanilla WellPath shake mix
  • 4 ice cubes

The additional ingredients in the Banana-Pecan Protein Shake are suggested by Personal Trainer, Alex McBrairty.

Leafy Greens Shake

Ingredients

  • 1 handful of salad mixed greens (versus spinach or other dark green leafy’s and cruciferous that can inhibit thyroid function when consumed raw): Good source of vitamins and minerals, including folate which can help reduce risk of stroke an cardiovascular disease
  • 1 long carrot stick (1 handful of baby carrots): Extremely high in vitamin A, good for eyes and cancer prevention
  • 1/4 cup organic blueberries: Believed to contain highest antioxidant capacity of all commonly consumed fruits and vegetables (helps protect against aging, cancer, and inflammation)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil: Fast burning fat (metabolized quickly and also provide satiety), can accelerate loss of midsection fat
  • 1-2 tbsp ground flaxseed: This helps with detoxification, such as metabolizing hormones out of the body
  • 1 tsp hemp seeds: These are high in essential fatty acids (reduce inflammation, help with weight loss, help prevent heart disease)
The ingredients (aside from the WellPath mix) and benefits provided from the Leafy Greens Shake are suggested by Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Serena Goldstein, ND.

Green Tea Smoothie

Ingredients


  • 1 scoop of WellPath vanilla powder
  • 1/2 cup of strong green teaDr. Joanne Mumola Williams further explained that green tea contains many antioxidant vitamins and is rich in catechin polyphenols. “Many health benefits have been attributed to the frequent consumption of green tea, including the inhibition of cancer cells, stabilization of blood sugar, improving cholesterol, preventing cardiovascular disease, fighting colds and flu (as it has anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties) and more. It also acts as a relaxant due to its content of the amino acid, theanin. The polyphenols in green tea may prevent age related memory loss.”
