Pomegranate Acai Milkshake Recipe Recipe

Pomegranate Acai Milkshake Recipe

This pomegranate acai drink is one of the many I make for breakfast after my morning workouts. I'm no nutritionist, but this drink works for me. It's filled with "superfoods". During the winter we almost always have freshly pressed pomegranate juice (here's why) in the refrigerator. To this fruit juice, I blended in some bananas, pure acai juice and mung beans for extra protein. 

It's delicious, plus it keeps me energetic and full until lunch time. Check out my other protein drinks; every day I blend a few ingredients, alternating between fresh fruits and vegetables, various kinds of milk and other sources of protein such as whey or soy protein.

Here's another all-natural recipe that Maman et bébé can both share, because I would never feed my child food I wouldn't eat myself. This blueberry breakfast oat shake is super healthy and contains no artificial flavorings. It's probably one of the healthiest meals I serve her, but it's still very tasty. You'll see in my notes that milk can be omitted or you could substitute infant formula for your little one's version. For added protein, I included mung beans and steel-cut oats, which also improve the consistency of the blueberry shake. Make sure you use room-temperature fruit for optimum flavor and natural sweetness.

I love my little baby Aria so much and I think she enjoys eating the same things as me. In fact, she won’t touch a spoonful until she sees me taking a bite! So as I always tell her when we start a meal: "une bouchée pour Maman (one mouthful for Mommy) et une pour bébé (and one for baby).". Motherhood is so much fun!

Natural Protein Shake Recipe (Smoothie)

This drink is made with mango purée, orange juice and a banana. The banana gives a smooth texture to the drink; cooked mung beans add protein and tie the flavors together.

I've read that eating breakfast is one of the keys to successfully losing weight. Since I've been waking up at the wee hours of the morning to work out for 45 minutes before starting the day, I want to stack the deck in my favor. A protein shake is the perfect choice for me because I'm not very big on breakfast (unless it's crêpes!).

Pumpkin Oatmeal Smoothie Recipe

Pumpkin Oatmeal Smoothie

Recently I made a pumpkin spice latte and it got me thinking about other drinks that I could make using this Fall flavor. The girls love smoothies, so it seemed like an obvious choice.

I combined some pumpkin purée with traditional pumpkin pie spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon to form the base of the smoothie. Maple syrup and brown sugar provide the sweetness, and oatmeal helps to thicken the drink and provide texture. No bananas here.

If you're looking for a healthy alternative to gorging on slices of pumpkin pie, this smoothie fits the bill.  It has the same flavor but with fewer calories and more nutrition. If that's not your goal, you could always throw in a scoop of ice cream and make a milkshake...
