With that said, I've made it with MRM's chocolate whey protein and it's still just as good, but you just don't receive all the same nutritional benefits as you would from the veggie protein and, let's be honest, do you really feel like eating all those veggies first thing in the morning? I know I don't!
- 4 oz liquid egg whites (pasteurized carton)
- 4 oz Unsweetened almond milk (we use Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla)
- About 1 scoop MRM Chocolate Veggie Protein
- 1 packet Starbucks VIA® ready brew coffee
- 1 scoop (2 tbsp) Flax USA Ground Flax Seed
- A few ice cubes
This is the easy part...add all the ingredients above to a blender and blend for about 30 seconds or until all ice cubes are blended.
Note - if you don't have a blender handy then you can also use a blender bottle...just sub the ice cubes with a few ounces of water so it's not too thick to shake.
Fat: 11g (don't worry - it's healthy (unsaturated) fat!!!)
Carbohydrates: 14g (mostly fiber, so it's really only 5g net carbs for those limiting intake)
Dietary Fiber: 9g
This shake has so many great nutritional benefits - it's a great source of Omega 3's (3.4 grams) and dietary fiber (almost 40% of your daily needs), protein, as well as potassium, calcium, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
Remember - if you order from Stronger Nutrition and use the referral code "EATCLEAN" you'll get 10% off your first order (they have the best price on the MRM Whey).
