Banana Orange Greenberry Shakeology


I love my Shakeology drinks. They’re my go-to breakfast every day and they’re versatile; you can add so much into them for a bonus added flavor. But the best part is that Shakeology isn’t just your everyday store-bought protein powder found in the healthy food aisle; it’s a nutrient-dense superfood protein shake. That means each serving contains important things that our bodies need like antioxidants, fiber, vitamins, mineral and probiotics just to name a few. Supporting digestive health should always be a priority and you’re doing just that when you have your daily dose of Shakeology.

I personally enjoy mine in the morning but I know a lot of others who have it as a snack, lunch or dinner. It’s a great boost for healthy energy, a factor in weight-loss and also a wonderful way to curb those junk-food cravings. 

If you’ve read this far, that means I’ve sparked your interest… So find your flavor here! I personally suggest Strawberry.

While I love my Strawberry PBJ Shakeology, I will test the waters with other flavors every now and then. This weekend the sun was out and it wasn’t entirely cold so I thought I would give my Greenberry packet a shot. Now because I’m not familiar with this flavor, I turned to Pinterest for some ideas and found this Orange Banana recipe. That seems like a pretty harmless combo, right? Right! Delicious enough that I’m gonna list the ingredients below.

1 scoop Greenberry Shakeology
1 medium banana
½ cup orange juice
½ cup water
3-4 ice cubes

 

Green Juice: Benefits + Recipe

Need to increase your energy? Leafy greens to the rescue! The quickest way to help get your daily dose of fruits and vegetables without eating a salad, or side of grapefruit is by drinking an 8-ounce (at least!) glass of green juice.

By digesting raw vegetables, you’re able to fully absorb all their nutrients verses getting bits and pieces broken down when vegetables are steamed, grilled or broiled. For starters, greens contain loads of calcium, potassium and iron; all important must-haves for a healthy body. But that’s not all – you can also get an abundance amount of vitamin B, C, E and K from them as well.

So what can you expect in a green juice? Most recipes call for a base:  (Spinach. Kale. Chard. Collards) with additional ingredients to help build a flavor: (Banana. Pineapple. Apple. Celery. Carrots. Beets)
