Don't Fear the Green: A Deliciously Simple Protein Shake Recipe Packed with 99th Monkey Power!

Posted by Nick Sheridan on

Green smoothies – they often evoke images of questionable ingredients blended into a questionable concoction. But here at 99th Monkey, we're all about changing that perception! Today, we're bringing you a vibrantly green protein shake that's not just bursting with nutrients, but also mouth wateringly delicious.

This shake is perfect for anyone looking for a quick and easy way to boost their daily intake of vitamins, minerals, and protein. It's ideal for a post-workout pick-me-up, a healthy and satisfying breakfast, or even a nutritious afternoon snack.

Why Green Shouldn't Scare You Off

The vibrant green colour of this shake comes from its secret weapon – spinach. Don't worry, you won't even taste it! Spinach is a powerhouse of nutrients, packed with vitamins A, C, and K, as well as iron and folate. It blends seamlessly with the other ingredients, adding a nutritional boost without overpowering the taste.

Minimal Ingredients, Maximum Flavour

The beauty of this recipe lies in its simplicity. You only need a handful of readily available ingredients to create a delicious and nutritious shake:

  • 250ml Almond or Soy Milk: Choose your preferred milk base. Almond milk offers a light and nutty flavour, while soy milk provides a creamier texture and additional protein.
  • 1/2 Cup Ice: This adds a refreshing chill and helps create a thick and creamy consistency.
  • 30g Protein Powder (Vanilla): Vanilla protein powder adds a smooth and sweet base flavour, but feel free to experiment with other flavours like chocolate or strawberry.
  • 15g 99th Monkey Almond Butter (Unsalted or Salted): Our nut butter adds a delicious richness and a healthy dose of protein and healthy fats. Both the unsalted and salted versions work well in this recipe, so choose your favourite!
  • 25g Honey (or Maple Syrup): A touch of natural sweetness to balance out the flavours. You can adjust the amount to your preference, or swap it for another natural sweetener of choice.
  • 20g Spinach: The star of the show! As mentioned before, spinach packs a powerful nutritional punch without affecting the taste.

Simple Steps, Big Payoff

Creating this green protein shake is as easy as 1, 2, blend! Here's how:

  1. Add all your ingredients – almond or soy milk, ice, protein powder, 99th Monkey Almond Butter, honey (or maple syrup), and spinach – to your blender.
  2. Blend for 30-60 seconds, or until smooth and creamy.
  3. Pour into your favourite glass and enjoy!

Beyond the Basics: Customisation Options

Feel free to get creative and personalise your green protein shake based on your taste preferences and dietary needs:

  • Fruity Twist: Add a handful of frozen berries, banana, or mango for a touch of sweetness and extra vitamins.
  • Green Boost: Up your greens game by adding a scoop of kale or a handful of baby greens.
  • Spice It Up: Add a pinch of cinnamon, ginger, or even a sprinkle of cayenne pepper for a little extra flavour kick.
  • Supercharge It: Add a tablespoon of chia seeds or flaxseeds for a boost of fibre and healthy fats.
