The Goat Shake

THE GOAT SHAKE

Ingredients (serves one goat):

  • 1 cup liquid (I typically go with half water/half unsweetened vanilla almond milk…if you want more calories, go with some coconut water or fresh juice)
  • 1 cup frozen fruit (I typically go with berries; OR pineapple/mango/banana; OR cherries + a couple spoons cocoa powder; OR peaches/blueberries; OR peaches/banana/strawberries….bananas + PB2 powder…you get the idea!)
  • A good handful spinach
  • Optional things – vanilla extract; almond extract (good with the cherries + cocoa powder); coconut extract; unsweetened coconut flakes (good with the pineapple/mango/banana)
  • 1 spoon Stevia in the Raw (more or less depending on your taste for sweetness.  Also if you are using the natural flavor or if you are adding cocoa powder or PB2 powder, you may need an extra spoon)

Directions:

Put everything in the blender and blend like crazy!  Best way to do it is liquid first, stevia + protein powder + any other type powder + extract + chia/flax next, spinach, then frozen fruit last.  Add more liquid if you need it.

Different shakes are good for different things.  Berries are good for everyday – they are lower sugar and lower carb/calorie.  The tropical – mango/banana/pineapple/coconut – good for a treat – or good for immunity boost…sometimes if I have an orange laying around, I add a little OJ too!  Need something anti-inflammatory?  I go with the cherries + dark chocolate cocoa.  Better than an advil!  (pineapples and turmeric are also great inflammation fighters!)

More recipes to come soon! (next time I’ll include photos too like a real blogger)

Color will vary depending on what you put in it!  This is the only shot I had for now ;)
