Here is a great way to think about making nutritious shakes from Precision Nutrition.
Ok, so let’s assume you’ve got your blender out and it’s powerful enough to do the job. Now you can follow the step by step guide below for creating nutritious and tasty Super Shakes.
Keep in mind, not all of the steps below are mandatory. If you don’t want any fruit, leave it out. If you are using almond milk and don’t want to add extra nuts, leave them out. (Of course, if you’re looking to control your calories, carbs, or fats, use smaller portion sizes or cut out certain ingredients.) You get the idea.
In the end, we selected some of the fruits, vegetables and proteins that seem to work best for our clients. However, our list isn’t exhaustive. Feel free to branch out. But for optimal mixing, flavor and consistency, follow the steps in order. In other words, add your ingredients in the order listed. Just go through each step and select an item (or two) from each column. Mix and match as you like. You’ll end up finding combinations you prefer the most.

PICK A PROTEIN POWDER
PICK A NUT / SEED
