Triple Berry (Hidden) Moringa & Wheatgrass Shake a.k.a. No Multivitamin, Just Nature’s Multivitamin!

Hey lovies!

<3

People always ask me what I think about multivitamins & my answer is always the same: I don’t believe in them because it doesn’t make sense to me that one select supplement could be crafted & contain all the vitamins + minerals that every body’s different body needs. I’m a firm believer in taking the supplements we know our bodies need based on 3 things: the way we feel, trial & error & empirical data that shows deficiencies.

BUT, what I do believe in is NATURE’S MULTIVITAMIN: MORINGA! If you’re looking for a way to get in a good dose of chlorophyll, antioxidants, minerals, vitamins,liver-enhancing properties & just an all-around boost to your health, moringa is where it’s at! Other green superfoods like chlorella, spirulina, matcha + wheatgrass are excellent too!

Today’s post workout shake is actually protein-powder free but full of amazing fibre, protein + healthy fat rich ingredients. And guess what? You can still achieve the perfect thick + creamy texture without protein powder!

But before we get into it, let’s just talk about some of the health benefits of moringa (I promise, I’ll keep it brief):

  • packed with nutrients, vitamins, minerals & amino acids
  • full of antioxidants, which help boost skin health & the body’s disease-fighting abilities & fight certain types of cancer &  combat aging in all areas of the body
  • fights inflammation in the body, which makes it helpful for gut health & overall health of all our vital organs
  • protects the heart
  • reduces some diabetes symptoms
  • boosts brain health
  • protects the liver, which is one of the most important organs in the body when it comes to detoxification, ridding the body of toxins, digesting & absorbing nutrients from foods & metabolizing fats, proteins & carbs & helping the body form bile
  • contains antimicrobial & antibacterial properties

  • 3/4 cup mixed berries

  • 1/2 tsp. pure organic vanilla extract
