Green power shake recipe

You might not be getting as many greens into your day as you should, but this shake makes it easy to incorporate an extra serving of those powerful foods in a more delicious way.

Broccoli sprouts are a super microgreen that is a good source of a powerful phytochemical called sulforaphane. Phytochemicals like sulforaphane help to reduce inflammation, protect your DNA from damage, and fight free radicals to keep your cells healthy.

Personalization tips

  • Lighter, recovery-focused day: Leave out the orange and increase to half an avocado for a little extra of the anti-inflammatory fats your body needs to support recovery.
  • Extra-hard workout: Add ½ cup of frozen pineapple to give the smoothie a little extra sweetness and a few extra carbohydrates to replenish those energy stores.
