I love shakes! They’re a quick and easy way to get a nutricious balanced meal on the go. They’re also perfect for hot, summer days when you just don’t want to slave away in the kitchen! Plus, as a Mom to a tween and teen, I know that they can handle making a shake on their own so I can grab some extra Zzz.
I received this recipe from Barbara Trujillo Gomez, a fitness expert, yogo instructor and a American Heart Association volunteer (LOVE!). She’s also joined forces with the National Honey Board to come up with some creative ways of cooking with miel/honey.
Honey, a natural energy booster and sweetener, is perfect when you are watching your weight or trying to get fit. Its organic, inexpensive, and can be used as a sugar substitute. Personally, I’m a sugar addict. I blame it on my genes. A meal doesn’t feel complete unless I have something sweet so honey is sure to help me lose weight. Hopefully, that means you’ll see a more svelte Ms. Latina at BlogHer! ¡Wepa!
Below is Barbara’s Whey Better Berry and Honey Energy Boost Shake recipe. (What a mouthful huh?) You can find other recetas/recipes by going to the honey site.
- 3-4 tbsp honey
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- 1 scoop vanilla whey protein
- 1/2 cup strawberries
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1/4 cup raspberries
- 1/2 banana
- 3 cubes of ices
- Slice strawberries and banana
- Combine all ingredients in a blender
You’re done! Just make sure that the ice is crushed and all ingredients are well mixed before serving.
NOTE: You can use any fruit combination; however, keep in mind that berries are full of antioxidants!
