SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE

if i work out early in the morning, i usually crave something on the healthier side instead of my usual huevos rancheros or baked eggs. i’ve been getting shakes for a few weeks after class until i started making my own instead. shakes can be pretty expensive around here ($9-12) and i can make one using the produce in my fridge for a lot less. today we are going to show you 3 very simple shake recipes that jen put together for ya. we use this ninja professional blender from best buy and it chops up pretty much anything we throw in there in seconds. the only downfall to a super fast blender is sometimes i get spooked and jump back when i turn it on because it’s powerful. but i scare easily, haha.

watch this short video on how we use the blender for our 3 shakes…the inspiration was coffee, berries, and greens. thanks for the video, arian!

and here’s the breakdown of the ingredients…

speeddate

The Speed Dater Recipe

• 1 cup cold coffee (either leftover brew or mix a heaping tablespoon of instant coffee into a cup of water.  it’s actually quite good, but don’t tell anyone i said that).

• 1 1/2 cups almond mik

• 1/2 cup chopped , pitted dates

• 1 teaspoon vanilla

• 1 cup of ice

• pinch of salt

The Kale Colada Recipe

• 1 packed cup of chopped kale (be sure to remove the spine)

• 3/4 cup pineapple juice

• 1 1/2 cup coconut milk

• 1 pear (peeled and cubed)

• 1 cup of ice

The Old Schooler Recipe

• 1 banana

• 1 cup plain yogurt

• 2 tablespoons honey

• 1/2 cup blueberries

• 1/2 cup raspberries

• 1/2 mango (peeled and cubed)

• 6 strawberries

note: you can freeze any of the fruit, especially the banana for more of an icy shake!

    I love making these too…I have the nutri bullet which I love, you are right though they are really loud! Especially with the frozen fruit.

  • 2. Nadine  |  September 18th, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    I NEED that speed dater! Such a brilliant idea to put dates in your iced coffee.

  • 6. michelle  |  September 18th, 2013 at 1:09 pm

    I am all about this! Cocoa powder is a great alternative for the coffee one for those who don’t feel like brewing up a pot before they get there shake…I pretty much have a version of this every morning (I like too add a banana to it) so yum!

    love you guys

  • 7. Emily  |  September 18th, 2013 at 1:11 pm

    Ha! That date one sounds really tasty. Also sounds like a perfect recipe to get things moving along if you know what I mean!

    Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog
    blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for
    inexperienced blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate
    it.
