We make a lot of protein shakes for breakfast, but this Peach and Green Tea Shake is my absolute favorite. I use frozen peaches and pineapple along with a ratio of half orange juice and half plain coconut milk. I also use a scoop of Dr. Mercola’s Whey Healthier Vanilla Protein Powder. It is made from all organic ingredients AND tastes fabulous. One scoop is packed with 19 grams of protein and only 90 calories. It’s also sugar free! I also use Dr. Mercola’s Matcha Green Tea Powder in this shake. The green tea powder is loaded with antioxidents. Considering all the fruit, protein, and nutrients in this shake, I think this is a great way to start my day. YUM!
The shake shown in the photo is a double recipe. But I think it looks so pretty in a quart size ball jar. I have also made these in a Magic Bullet but my favorite tool is the Vita Mix!
- 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup frozen pineapple chunks
- 1/3 cup frozen peaches (or a little more to suit your taste)
- 2 Tablespoons organic cream
- 1/2 teaspoon Matcha Green Tea Powder
- 1 scoop Mercola Whey Healthier Vanilla Protein Powder
Place all ingredients in a Magic Bullet or Vitamix or a blender and blend until smooth. You can adjust the thickness of the shake by add a little more or less orange juice or coconut milk. Drink right away and have a GREAT day!
