Monster Chocolate Amaranth Protein shake
By Honor Tremain
–Use full cream milk, rice, soy, quinoa or almond milk as base.
–1/2 tbs. cooked amaranth = slow burning carb, high protein for long lasting energy.
–1tbs. lecithin granules= Cholesterol lowering, brain function, protein.
–1 tbs. LSA powder= (Linseed, sunflower and almond meal)=Healthy fats for skin, hair and nails. Keeps you regular to the bathroom, high in protein.
–1/2 tsp. green food (chlorella, spirulina, or barley grass)=These are like having the nutritional equivalent to a big bucket of veggies, great for energy, high protein, keeps you full, slightly detoxing and analyzing. Synergy is one of my favourite brands.
–1 tbs. honey, Maple syrup or agave=to sweeten if needed, extra fuel for energy.
–1 tsp. raw cacao powder= Raw cacao is how chocolate coco is before being processed, so is still a chocolate powder but contains many more minerals, vitamins and antioxidants for boosting health, energy and much more.
–Shake and serve. Great for a quick breakfast or a snack in between meals.
-Optional=Can blend in banana, mango, and berries to make it more nutritious.
