Shake it up, baby!

Mir’s Shake Recipe

Here’s my all-time favorite recovery drink (oh yeah, it’s a GREAT meal replacement, too, on those days when you just don’t know what else to eat).

It’s great for vegans, or just anyone who can’t do dairy – like me. If you CAN have dairy, just simply replace this shake mix with my alternative, Whey Basics, in the following recipe. Both are delish, and if you make it per the directions below, should hold you over for a good 4 hours!

Mir’s Purely Perfect Alkalizing Shake

  • 1-2 Scoops of PureLean or Whey Basics Protein Powder
  • 1 Tbsp of almond butter
  • 1 Tbsp of ground flaxseed meal
  • 1 cup of fresh or frozen fruit (bananas are fine if this is following a HARD training session; otherwise stick to a peeled apple, berries or cubed melon)
  • 1 Scoop of New Greens powder
  • 8-10 oz. pure filtered water
  • A few ice cubes

Toss it all into a blender, whirrr it up. You can also replace 1/4 cup of water with a 1/4 cup of coconut milk. Just cut back on the almond butter if you go this route.

And be sure to power it up even more by taking your Athletic Pure Pack daily supplement, too. I always find it easier to take my vitamins with a creamy, thick protein shake!
