Simple Shakes With 5 Ingredients or Less! 


Anyone else guilty of skipping meals?  I am pretty sure I didn’t eat breakfast until I got pregnant and it was required because of the whole growing a human thing oh and if I didn’t eat I became a nasty beast!  Just ask my husband 🙂  Shakes are my go to breakfast.  They are perfect for people who don’t like a hearty meal in the mornings or for people who are just in a rush.  I don’t have time to sit and eat breakfast.  Sitting and eating breakfast is basically picking at my kid’s leftovers before it goes in the garbage or one of my dogs snakes it.  So shakes it is!  Having the same thing each day can get a bit boring so I wanted to share my top 3 shakes that I love.  Not to mention all of them have 5 ingredients or less!   Read below for the recipes!


Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Cinnamon

Yep, It’s that simple and that delicious.  This is my go to shake lately.  I am loving the added flavor of cinnamon not to mention all the health benefits that come with it!

2 Scoops Chocolate protein powder

2 Tablespoons organic powdered peanut butter

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 1/3 Cup water and some ice cubes

Blend and enjoy!


Vanilla, Banana, Spinach and Almond Butter

Ok, it may sound like an odd combination but believe me it works and man is it delicious!

1 Scoop Vanilla Potien powder

1/2 a banana or one small banana

1 hearty handful of spinach

1 Tablespoon Almond Butter

1 1/3 Cup of water and some ice cubes.

Blend and enjoy!


Berry Delicious 

1/2 Cup frozen mixed berries.  I like the raspberries, strawberries and blueberries blend.

1 Handful of baby kale

2 Tablespoons quick rolled oats

1 Cup almond milk

1 Tablespoon Organic Honey

Blend and enjoy!


Ashli’s Tips:

  1. In my opinion peanut butter makes everything taste better.  So when in doubt add a spoonful.  PB is a good fat but don’t add more than a tablespoon or two.
  2. Avocados are great to add into shakes, try it!
  3. Add more or less water based on the consistency you like.
  4. Look for really good quality protein powder made with high quality ingredients!  This is so important!   I use this one.
  5. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different flavors.
  6. Kids love shakes, so its a great way to sneak in veggies for a stubborn eater.
