1 cup of spinach

1 pink grapefruit

1 tsp chia seeds

4-8 ice cubes

Benefits

Strawberry Cheeseshake

1 cup low fat vanilla ice cream

80g quark or low fat cream cheese

1 cup unsweetened almond or low fat milk

1 cup strawberries

This has no business being healthy but, being rich in whey and casein protein, this bevvy will trickle nutrients into your body for hours, post workout. Add the fiber and antioxidants from strawberries and you have a winning combo of taste with nutrition.
