Sabroso Saturday: Whey Better Berry and Honey Energy Boost Shake

by Migdalia

It’s Sabroso Saturday (Translation: Tasty Saturday)! The day when we share recipes that have helped us stretch our budget, our imagination and our taste buds, without sacrificing our health.


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.

Whey Better Berry and Honey Energy Boost Shake

Serves 2-3

  • 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


  1. Slice strawberries and banana
  2. Combine all ingredients in a blender
  3. Blend.

You’re done! Just make sure that the ice is crushed and all ingredients are well mixed before serving.

¡Buen provecho!

NOTE: You can use any fruit combination; however, keep in mind that berries are full of antioxidants!

    Always great when yummy foods can help us get healthy and/or lose weight. Sometimes it feels like healthy food is not tasty :-/

    Yum! I’m going to switch it up a tiny bit and use unsweetened almond milk and chocolate protein powder, but this is perfect timing as I’ve been looking for a good shake idea.
