Dr. Bill Sears recommends that adults get in at least 25g a day in fiber and half of our body's weight in grams of protein (plant / animal) a day. With the shake I'm about to share and with my [weight] transparency, I got in almost half of my minimum protein requirement in the shake alone. Yeah, there may be other protein powders on the market that offer way more protein but I'm a big proponent of getting protein from plants when I drink a shake. I can get in the other sources, including meat or dairy, when I eat my meals throughout the day. I find that when I drink my plant based shakes, I stay satisfied and it has been especially helpful for recovery post workouts as well as it serves as a way to lessen injuries while working out.
Now onto the recipe! If you'd like to learn more about the ingredients and / or the plant protein powder, please message me on my blog. Be (stay) well! =)
Ingredients / Tools:
10 oz of Califia Farms (Almond-Coconut milk (unsweetened - ZERO sugar);
2 tbs natural peanut butter;
1 tbs ground flax;
1/3 cup Complete;
2 tbs ground almonds (meal);
1 tbs unsweetened shredded coconut;

1/2 tbs Enjoy Life chocolate chips (dairy free);
This shake offers about 33g of protein and 28g of fiber. There is no whey, casein, or gluten. It makes sense for almost everyone's health regimen!
