The Magic of a Good, Health Boosting Shake

What is the healthiest way to prepare one?

We can't deny that going to a modern cafe and requesting a breakfast smoothie makes us feel so trendy. Because to a certain extent it does, especially among the newer generation that is more focused on eating conscientiously. However, the idea is not to do it just to be in fashion or because it looks cool to walk around with a green shake in hand. Do it for conviction, so that it becomes a healthy habit you enjoy!

Maybe you think shakes are too expensive. It’s true that many are, precisely because they have become trendy. To make your own doesn’t have to be a mission - homemade smoothies are usually healthier options. Pre-made shakes sold in bottles usually contain additives and sweeteners that ruin any attempt at good intentions. Shakes prepared at your request, with organic products and no added sugar, using the best superfoods are the highest quality.

Studies show that regularly consuming natural shakes can help:

  • Decrease lipid levels, boost the immune system, improve skin, provide energy, etc.

  • Control weight when properly prepared. Prioritize nutrition by ensuring they contain enough fiber and protein. (.)

How many and which ingredients should my shake contain?

In general, a shake prepared as a snack ideally should not exceed 200 calories. To replace a main meal, consume a shake with up to 450 calories.

Shakes can be prepared according to individual taste and needs. It’s always best not to mix too many products. Try adding:

  • One fresh or frozen cup of the main fruit you want as a base or dominant flavor. Examples include pineapple, mango, strawberries, papaya, banana, etc.

  • Add another cup of a vegetable such as spinach, cucumber, arugula, etc.

  • If you want to combine more than two fruits or vegetables (such as pineapple, mango and carrot), try to make it equal a total of two combined cups.

  • Top with a scoop of protein powder or a cup of Greek yogurt or kefir.

  • You can add one or two tablespoons of healthy fats, such as avocado, chia seeds, flaxseed, hemp or almond butter, or unsalted nuts of your choice.

  • You can even add herbal leaves such as mint or basil, which besides contributing to aroma and flavor, have digestive and relaxing properties, among others.

  • You’ll need liquid for the shake, too. Use water, cow's milk or dairy alternative such as almond, coconut, oat or cashew milk. A shake needs about 8 ounces of liquid, depending on how thick you prefer it.

  • Give your health an extra boost by adding superfoods, herbs and ingredients that are a compendium of healthy additives to your shake, such as cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, raw cocoa powder, spirulina, powdered chaga or lion’s mane mushrooms, matcha tea, ginseng, biotin, ashwagandha, etc. Add just 1/3 teaspoon or the equivalent of the contents of one capsule, to avoid ruining the flavor of the shake or adding too much supplements.

  • Try not to sweeten the shakes. If you must, use healthier options like a little bit of raw honey, stevia or coconut sugar, among others. (.)
