I Like Them Thick.

I Like Them Thick.
Shakes, that is!

As you could tell from my last post, smoothies and shakes have been happening a lot over here. They are so refreshing and I love how much nutrition I can pack in them and yet still have it taste like dessert. Does it get any better than that? Here are my top things I like to use to get shakes and smoothies thick and creamy:

1. Coconut Oil

2. Spinach

3. Xanthan Gum and Guar Gum

4. Frozen banana (and other frozen fruits)

5. Chia seeds

Coconut Oil is definitely my favorite smoothie add-in currently. It creates such a creamy texture and tropical flavor. Mmmmm.

What was today’s shake of choice? I went for a….

Blueberry Muffin Protein Shake

  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 serving vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 serving Incredible Greens (more on this awesome stuff to come!)
  • 2 handfuls fresh organic spinach
  • pinches of xanthan and guar gum
  • splash of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup ice

You know the drill: blend and enjoy! Delish.

Okay, school awaits and I need to keep up so I can head home tomorrow afternoon. I am happy that this week has moved along pretty fast for me and can’t wait to enjoy some relaxation time. Woot woot!
