    No Excuses Fitness Friendly Shake & Smoothie Recipes

    These are a collection of healthy and fitness friendly recipes that I have created myself or collected from this site or other sources. These should be able to fit into most healthy eating plans including Body for Life, Eating for life, Burn the fat feed the muscle, Bodybuilding, or many other diet and exercise plans. Some of these may have higher fat/calorie ingredients that can be substituted for their low fat/non fat counter parts (i.e. butter to margarine, vegetable oil to olive oil), and some may have chicken breasts with skin-on, but you can always remove it etc. This means the nutrition values may not be accurate, but you know if you are using better ingredients, the values will be better. So just be aware of that. Always look at the ingredients and make sure you are using the healthiest versions of them (i.e. skim milk, low fat cheese, whole wheat pastas, etc.). These recipes give you "No Excuse" to not eat right! This is a work in progress so feel free to email me suggestions if you have them!

The health benefits of eating Spirulina are well documented in the biomedical literature. Spirulina promotes immune system health and provides important antioxidant benefits. Spirulina contains over 60% protein, higher than any other food! From the Spirulina website.

    I looked at all the peach smoothies and decided to make my own. I usu. don't sweeten my smoothies, but you may add some honey if you like. It makes a nice, thick, smooth smoothie.

    Recipe #230032

    This recipe is from a Low Glycemic cookbook. If you are diabetic or eating the low-glycemic way, this rates in the 'very low' category of below 39 if made as directed with a sugar-free yogurt. The flax meal adds a good amount of fiber and it's great for you too! I had one for breakfast and wasn't hungry for the whole morning! The nutrition is: 182 calories, 35 'good' carbs, 3.4 g fiber, 10 g Protein, 327 g calcium.

    A quick healthy breakfast for those on the run or a healthy dessert!

    Recipe #92369

    This is a low fat and no sugar recipe. The fat that is in here comes from the flax seed which is great for you and gives this sherbet a slight nutty taste. Make it for breakfast or have it as dessert. It's a wonderful replacement for ice cream. This is made with frozen berries. Sugar or Splenda may be added to taste if berries are not sweet enough. I myself like the tartness.

    Recipe #100040

    When you think of orange julius, a drink with milk or cream, orange juice, and possibly egg is most likely what comes to mind. Although I have always considered myself an orange julius lover, that drink never existed until I googled it in hopes of finding a recipie for my favorite mall drink- a mouth-watering combination of orange, kiwi, and yougurt dubbed "Orange Julius" by California Fruit Shake & Yogurt Co. Disapointed by my search results and determined to create the drink I love, I concocted this recipe. I hope you enjoy it. Here's to the new Orange Julius!

    Recipe #251963

    This breakfast smoothie is easy to make, and is my version of the recipe given to me from my naturopath. You can substitute other milks for the soy milk, such as almond or rice milk, as well as other protein powders for the soy powder. The flax meal is optional, but adds omega-3.

    Recipe #251966

    If you are into bodybuilding or working out, you will want to use this shake before and after your workout so you don't lose muscle mass. After a hard weight training workout is the best time to feed your body high GI carbs and Whey protein so you can build more lean mass. it is also the best time to use Glutamine and creatine supplements. Why spend more on name brand drink powders with other useless ingredients and claims?

    Perfect booster drink. Good for breakfast on the go or a post work out beverage.

    Recipe #163145

    Refreshing and healthy. I go through fases with this breakfast. Spice it to your own liking and if you have your Mother in Law staying with you longer then 3 days you might consider adding vodka to it!!!!!!

    Recipe #67342

    I learned this trick one day when I made my morning workout shake to thin. You can use this on any flavor shake or smoothie for extra creaminess and added protein!

    Recipe #251347

    Use any flavor of the sugar free Crystal Light drink mix you desire! The flavors are almost endless, so you never get bored! Contains the proper balance of protein, carbs, and fats!

    Recipe #251344

    You can sweeten this up with a little Splenda or honey if you prefer it sweeter. Recipe courtesy of Juan Carlos-Cruz from the program "Weighing In."

    Recipe #185277

    The power shake is great to drink before exercising!

    Recipe #10286

    A refreshing smoothie.

    Recipe #213520

    I love the versatility of smoothies, and I make them a lot. This combination, however, has been my favorite (so far). Because the berries are frozen there is no need to add ice. Substituting different fruits should work pretty well, too. Add more or less chocolate milk to change to desired thickness. Recipe makes approx. 2 pints.
