PW Post workout Shake

Popeye and Olive Oyl PW Shake

1 cup Spinach (super food)
1 cup Raspberries
1 cup greek yogurt
1/2 cup milk (low fat or even unsweetened coconut milk)
1/4 cup Cashews
2 scoops (close to 50g) Protein Powder
2 tbsp Goji Berries

- Combine all ingredients together and blend up until desired consistency.
- NO you cannot taste the Spinach in the shake
*Spinach is one of the Super Foods I recommend for its:
- low alkalinity on the body
- anti-inflammatory
- vitamins & minerals
- Popeye and Olive Oly ate it.....so it has to be super!
*Lower the calories or lactose intolerant, use water instead of milk or coconut milk
*Want a Popeye boost with vitamins and minerals add 3 cups Spinach (get those veggies in)

TIPS: - if lactose intolerant replace the milk with water and 1/2 scoop p-powder. OR if you have been doing your homework in reguards with what works best in your body, sub in; goats milk or yogurt
- do not like coconut :-(
Simply take it out, cook oats with water, but you MUST add some fat to this oatmeal to remain in hormonal balance and not turn too acidic. Add 1-2 tbsp natural nut butter (in photo)
