Sweet, Refreshing Taste: 310 Chocolate Mint Shake
To incorporate the classic chocolate-mint flavor you know and love, we added a scoop of 310 Chocolate Mint Meal Replacement Shake powder! This incredible protein powder contains all the nutrients you would obtain from a healthy, well-balanced meal, including plant-based protein, essential vitamins and minerals, fiber, probiotics, and a mix of organic superfood greens – all while tasting like a chocolate mint patty!
Not to mention, the shakes are naturally-sweetened with plant-based Stevia… There’s no added sugar or artificial sweeteners in them! They’re also free of common allergens, including dairy, soy, and gluten – so they can be enjoyed by everyone!
Let’s look at the protein in 310 Shake! First, the unique blend of pea, brown rice, and hemp proteins provide you with all the amino acids necessary to maintain and build lean muscle, boost metabolism, and increase feelings of fullness. With 15g of protein per serving, this shake can be enjoyed any time throughout the day, whether you need a quick, clean breakfast, a pre- or post-workout drink, a healthy snack, or meal on-the-go to help sustain your energy levels.
Plus, because 310 shakes are so much more than just protein powders, additional vital nutrients are added to each shake formula to make them some of the best, health-boosting meal replacement shakes available. With 20 essential vitamins and minerals per serving – including vitamins E, A, and D, and minerals calcium, potassium and magnesium – each shake works harmoniously to boost your immune system and support optimal wellness.
Healthier Chocolate: Cacao Nibs & Cacao Powder
To further boost the extra chocolate-y flavor of this shake, cacao nibs and cacao powder are added to give it bursts of cocoa flavor. Both of these ingredients are a great alternative for chocolate lovers because they have substantially less sugar than regular chocolate. In addition, they’re incredibly rich in antioxidants, which help reduce inflammation and fight free radicals to help prevent sickness and disease. Nourishing your body and satisfying your chocolate cravings has never been so easy!
Satisfying Healthy Fats: Avocado
The next ingredient in this recipe gives a smooth, creamy texture to this shake, while being a superfood for your health. Not only are avocados incredibly tasty, they’re a great source of essential vitamins C, E, K, and B6, magnesium and potassium, and fatty acids that support bone health and strong immunity. The omega-3 fatty acids in avocados not only promote a healthy heart, but they also keep you full and satiated, so you’re less likely to reach for unhealthy, sugar and carb-filled snacks throughout the day.
