AND NEVER MISS A NEW POST
By Marvin | March 14, 2018 |
When I came up with the idea to create the green dream shake, I aimed high. The shake had to be:
The reasons for the above are simple: Team Ascend takes a holistic approach to health, and so does my green dream shake. Our bodies need fats, especially essential fats, no matter which diet philosophy we subscribe to. That’s why this shake contains walnuts, which are rich with heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids. To bring the green touch I added avocado. Aside from being delicious, avocado is a real vitamin and mineral bomb.
To balance your natural cholesterol level and support your liver, I added coconut oil. Coconut oil contains HDL (high density lipoprotein), a protein-fat-combination which can help prevent heart problems down the line.
If you’re thinking this shake already sounds pretty awesome, get ready to be completely convinced. The shake has two more secret weapon: cinnamon and ginger. First, cinnamon is a natural sweetener, and it’s also a natural testosterone booster which helps your body more easily build muscle. Secondly, ginger functions as a natural fat burner through its spicy molecule capsaicin, which increases thermogenesis in your body.
Let’s move on. Not only does this shake burn fat and boost testosterone, it’s also tasty and delicious. That’s why we use honey (or, for our vegans, agave syrup); to sweeten this baby up and get more vitamins and minerals in there. Plus, there’s apple, which is a low glycemic fruit that will give you a sweet taste without insulin. Almond milk rounds the taste up and provides calcium. Awesome taste, no added sugars.
Last, but not least, we need to make sure to get protein. Bulletproof protein contains no additives, just protein. #nofakes
So, that’s what we call an alrounder. We hope you enjoy this special recipe which we made just for you, our outstanding clients.
Keep the energy up!
