Smoothies are the IN Thing

smoothies are the in thingSitting here chuckling to myself after I just sucked down a delicious, nutritious smoothie!

Back in the day {in 1981} when we first were introduced to Shaklee products, the idea of drinking a protein shake for breakfast, followed by a handful of food supplements, simply was not that popular or widespread like it is today!

Back then, the protein powder was called Instant Protein {soy} and came in only two flavors – plain and cocoa. We blended the powder with cow’s milk and endured the taste and gritty texture for one reason only …  health results it produced were worth the 60 seconds it took to drink. A little sprinkle of cinnamon helped the liquid goodness go down the hatch!

Funny thing is? After a week or so of forcing the shakes down for health reasons, we acquired a taste and grew to love them … actually looked forward to breakfast each day.

But boy oh boy, we’ve come a long way baby! Smoothies have arrived! Today, smoothies are the IN thing! Everyone’s drinking them, buying them, and many companies are selling the protein powder to add to them {soy, whey, rice, pea, potato – you name it!} And I don’t mean the plain Jane or cocoa variety … we’re talking about smoothie heaven!

If you have a blender, protein powder, some fruit or veggies, flavorings and your choice of milk {almond and coconut milk were unheard of back when} you can pretty much concoct any recipe … and turn it into a quick fast-food meal!  How fun is THAT? And so much healthier than fast food, or a run to your local designer coffee shop… and cheaper too!

Smoothies are taking on a LIFE of their own!
But make sure you choose a smoothie with LIFE IN IT!

YES! I said one that has LIFE IN IT! Life Shake that is! Remember that not all smoothie’s are created equal.  Big differentiating factor is the actual protein powder you add into the smoothie that makes it a complete meal, providing adequate protein, carbs, fiber, healthy fat and the full spectrum of vitamins and minerals and NO artificial anything!! You may smile about that, but it’s not that easy to find one that lives up to all those standards with non-GMO ingredients, and NO artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners or preservatives.

Shaklee Life Shake exceeds the standards in every way.
