Salad in a cup: Wheat Grass Protein Shake

Happy Monday!  I hope you are doing well.  I wanted to share a pre-workout meal I have been enjoying lately.  It is essentially a portable salad in a cup. I love the convenience of smoothies and protein shakes.  This particular one is effortless, quick to prepare and packed with delicious healthy fats and super-foods. 

I know it looks intimidating but, trust me; it is really, really good!!!
I hope you give this recipe a try ;o)

Ingredients (serves 1):
1 scoop of wheat grass powder (I used Amazing Grass)
1 scoop of your favorite vanilla protein powder (out of PerfectFit I used MRM Egg-white)
1 cup of chopped kale
1/2 of a small avocado  
juice of 1/2 a lemon
1/4 t. of ground cinnamon
1/4 t. of ground turmeric
vanilla liquid stevia or Truvia to taste
6 ice cubes
1 1/2 cups of cold water

Directions:
Add all of your ingredients into a blender.  Blend until you get a "milkshake" like consistency.  
Serve & enjoy! ;o)
Now, I am a wheat grass lover but, if you are not a fan... 
try adding it to your favorite fruit smoothie or protein shake, preferably in the morning.
You will enjoy the energy boost!

Cheers to health!
Have a happy, healthy day.

  1. I made a wheat grass shake - Wheat grass power, 1 frozen banana, 1 cup of milk (2 percent or whole), and hemp protein powder. Glad to see a recipe with both protein and wheat grass :)

  2. Wow can't wait to try this! I made a wheat grass juice smoothie today with pineapple juice(watered down), half a frozen banana, scoop of matcha, scoop of wheat grass powder, and some frozen berries. It was delicious but I wanted something with more protein, so I will try this next time :).
