I have been making this incredible smoothie with all the power ingredients I could find and let me tell you this one is a keeper. If one drinks this every day, not only will you be able to cleans out your body, but you will be a fat burning machine! This smoothie is a perfect treat for breakfast and it will leave you very full, you can also drink this for a power kick an hour before your workout routine.
This smoothie has good carbs, perfect amount of protein, great amount of vitamins, antioxidants and good healthy fats or what I call the perfect meal.
- One glass of ice
- One glass of water
- One packet of Pure Acai ( I purchase unsweetened pure Acai packets from Whole Foods )
- One Bowl Of Organic Spinach
- Two Organic Eggs
- One Scoop of Whey Isolate Protein ( 25 g )
- One Tablespoon Of Coconut Oil
- Four Tablespoons Of Aloe Vera Juice ( Organic not from concentrate )
- One Banana
Blend it al in a blender and trust me after you drink this you will fill happy as a camper and will be running laps .
A little bit about the ingredients: Acai berry contains antioxidants and amino acids that improve the digestive system, helping your body to get rid of waste and improve the function of your metabolism. It contains Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Iron and Calcium, it is considered to be a complete food. Here is a great article about Acai Berry.
I’ve already written about the benefits of Aloe Vera Juice, what I love about this juice is that it helps your body with absorbing the nutrients, so you get more out of your Acai .
I’ve also written about the the Benefits of the Coconut Oil, this oil is perceived by the body as an energy source and not as fat, it is digested quickly before it has the chance to stick to your thighs. Coconut Oil gives you energy and helps to regulate your metabolism and regulate your appetite as well.
You already know why I drink Whey Isolate Protein, because it is considered the best protein absorbed by the body, it is also rated as the highest quality protein.
Organic Eggs is also a great source of protein and they also help to speed up your metabolism. I believe since eggs are a whole food, mixing them with Whey Isolate will make the meal more complete.
And of course I am sure you already know about spinach and bananas – now go play and enjoy your fat burning smoothie!
