In this recipe article, we’ll see how to make a healthy strawberry shake for the kids—as well as for ourselves! For this recipe, I chose a “Super Strawberry Shake,” taken from a fun Shaklee email that I received. Its amusing title is: “These recipes have all the blenders buzzin’.”
Blending To Make the Strawberry Shake
Making this strawberry shake can provide a refreshingly salubrious snack, a quick meal replacement, or a popular, lively dessert. Whatever its purpose, it will prove to be an easy, convenient blend of natural products anytime throughout the entire year!
So let’s get started with the list of ingredients for making this particular strawberry shake. You’ll see a link to a recommended product that makes this shake especially flavorful and healthy—Shaklee’s Strawberry Life Shake. This item, according to Shaklee, “…provides energy and essential nutrients beneficial to overall health.”
- Two scoops of Strawberry Life Shake (this is recommended, though you may choose to use another protein powder mix)
- 1 cup milk of choice (consider soy, rice, almond, or cashew milk!)
- 1⁄2 banana
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 4 medium strawberries (fresh or frozen)
And now…blend! If you are not using frozen strawberries, you may want to add a couple of ice cubes.
Health Benefits of This Strawberry Shake
With this shake, you receive a substantial nutritional boost from either the Strawberry Life Shake or some other protein powder mix. In addition, strawberries themselves have their own considerable nutritional punch.
The Nourish by WebMD website features an excellent article, Health Benefits of Strawberries, that details the many benefits of eating strawberries. Here you can read some of the nutrition facts regarding this amazing fruit. Moreover, the article also provides information for handling strawberries…and recipes!
Chia Seeds in This Strawberry Shake
Surprisingly, we find another nutritional powerhouse in chia seeds.
These seeds are likely native to Central America. As a result, they were an important part of the diet of the ancient Aztec and Mayan people of the region.
And there is good reason to include chia seeds in our strawberry shake. You can read about the fascinating benefits of chia seeds in this medically reviewed article on the Healthline Media website: 7 Enticing Health Benefits of Chia Seeds.
