Healthy Shake Recipes That Actually Taste Good

Who hasn’t tried some awful shake recipe or three when trying to diet? Or maybe you found a recipe that tastes good, but isn’t as healthy as you first thought? After a fair amount of trail and error, I have some go to recipes when I feel like having a shake instead of a meal.

4-Shakes

Very Berry Shake
1/2c Coconut Milk
1/4c Strawberries (fresh or frozen: I prefer frozen!)
1/4c Blueberries
1/4c Blackberries
1/2 Banana
Ice (Optional)

I like to add the solid ingredients to the blender first, followed by liquids. Blend the ingredients until they’re smooth, and pour in a glass. I prefer to use frozen fruits, so I don’t need ice. Adding half a banana to any of these recipes helps to keep you feeling satiated longer.

Just Peachy Shake
1/2c Vanilla Almond Milk
3/4c Peaches
1/2c Banana
1tsp Honey

I use this shake to satisfy a raging sweet tooth. One of my favorite desserts is a heaping scoop of vanilla ice-cream with peaches and drizzled honey. The Just Peachy shake is a healthier answer to my much loved dessert. Bonus points if you use raw, local, organic honey.

Take Me to the Tropics Shake
1/2c Coconut Milk
1/4c Pineapple
1/4c Mango
1/4c Papaya
1/2 Banana
Splash of Orange juice

This shake is so incredibly fresh! I say to add a splash of orange juice, because it is a personal preference ingredient. I hardly ever drink orange juice by itself, so I don’t add much to this shake, but other people may love orange juice, and may want to add more.

 

Mean Green Shake
1/2c Coconut Milk
1/2c Berries (Any kind will do, but I love to use blueberries if I have them.)
1/2 Banana
1 Big Handful of Baby Spinach or Kale

This shake is packed to the gills with antioxidants and vitamins. It’s a great way to get in some dark, leafy greens without having to eat yet another salad. I don’t know about anyone else, but kale salad isn’t my favorite dish.

These are only a few examples of shakes that taste good while still being healthy. The combinations really are endless. As long as you pick fruits, veggies, a liquid base, and leave out processed ingredients, you’ll have a tasty and healthy shake to drink. Discover more at London Weight Management Malaysia.
