Classic Vanilla Bean Taste: 310 Vanilla Shake
The star ingredient in this old-fashioned smoothie recipe is 310 Vanilla Shake – which gives it classic, vanilla bean ice cream sweetness and creaminess. Even with the great flavor, the protein powder is sweetened solely with plant-based sugar, Stevia, and natural flavors. So, it’s also much healthier than typical sugary vanilla treats.
This meal replacement powder provides this shake recipe with subtle notes of fresh vanilla bean, which perfectly complements the fruits in this recipe. Furthermore, this creamy, rich protein powder has a unique blend of plant-based proteins, essential vitamins and minerals, and an organic superfood greens blend, to keep your health in total balance!
Crafted with a special mix of three different plant-based proteins (pea, brown rice, and hemp), this shake formula helps increase feelings of fullness and provides your body with the building blocks it needs to build and maintain lean muscle mass. Not to mention, plant-based proteins also contain essential dietary fiber that help ensure your digestive system is functioning at its peak!
Next, to ensure a fully-balanced meal, vital antioxidants such as vitamins A and E are added to help boost your immunity, while calcium, magnesium, and potassium are included to promote strong, healthy bones and joints. You can easily reap all these immense benefits and transform any smoothie recipe into a super-charged protein beverage with 310 Vanilla Shake!
Finally, if you could benefit from increasing your daily fruit and veggie intake, 310 Vanilla Shake also has you covered! With a powerful blend of superfood organic greens like kale, broccoli, spinach, and spirulina, you can easily reap the benefits of these essential micronutrients, all while indulging in a delicious sweet treat.
Sumptuous “Ice Cream” Consistency: Frozen Banana
In order to achieve that creamy, thick, nostalgic diner-like shake consistency, half of a frozen banana is incorporated into this shake recipe! Not only does frozen banana provide added texture and natural sweetness to your shake, but this popular fruit is also packed with health-boosting nutrients.
Bananas are an excellent source of fiber (both pectin and resistant starch), supporting good digestion and balanced blood sugar levels. In addition, bananas are full of potassium and magnesium, two minerals that are excellent for supporting heart health!
Juicy, Naturally-Sweet Taste: Fresh Strawberries
The final ingredient we’re highlighting for you in this recipe is of course, naturally-sweet, juicy strawberries! In addition to giving this shake its punchy, fruity flavor, strawberries are superb for keeping your immunity strong and healthy… containing more vitamin C in a single serving than oranges!
Bursting with antioxidants, this juicy berry can help you fight off free radicals and ward off sickness, so that you can continue feeling your best. Like bananas, strawberries are also a great source of dietary fiber to further assist your digestive system in optimal functioning and prolong satiety.
