New Shakeology Recipe: Purple Reign

20130112-075439.jpg

Last night, after a day of traveling across country to San Francisco, I was pooped by 8PM. I was too tired to even prepare dinner and traveling while on the Reset can be a bit of challenge. Problem was solved when my friend, Andrea, suggested we have Shakeology for dinner!

She created this amazing recipe that I now call “Purple Reign”, which includes blackberries, a banana and almond milk combined with Tropical Strawberry Shakeology. I haven’t had fresh blackberries in years and this was a pleasant surprise. I did some research on blackberries and here is what I found!

1. They are super high in fiber, one of highest among fruits, which promotes healthy digestion and reducing the risk of heart disease.

2. They are Rich in vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin C which helps with boosting immunity and Vitamin K which helps with calcium absorption.

3. They have high levels of phenolic acids which, besides having many other potential health benefits, are antioxidant compounds known as powerful anti-carcinogenic agents.

When you couple this with the power of Shakeology, you have a power packed treat!

Here is the recipe:
1 scoop of Vegan Tropical Strawberry Shakeology
8 – 12 oz of Almond Milk
1 ripe banana (almost too ripe)
1 cup of fresh blackberries (frozen is okay too)
Handful of ice

Blend until smooth. It should create a beautiful dark purple color. The banana will provide additional sweetness if the berries are a bit tart. Also, blend a little bit longer than you normally would to grind up the seeds. Pour in a cup and enjoy!

Let me know how you like this recipe!
