  3. Spirulina (1 tsp) - spirulina is a green superfood that provides a rich source of oxygen for your blood
  4. Gogi berry powder (1 tsp) - gogi berries are high in anti-oxidants and boost the immune system

NUTRITION NOTE:
  1. You can easily enjoy a meal in a cup as long as it includes the following important ingredients for a balanced meal: a healthy fat, protein, fiber and a variety of vitamins and minerals. A full serving should be between 16 oz and 24 oz to count as a meal.
Recipe Notes

*Plant proteins are the perfect base for a rich creamy shake and now there are many great options that are healthy and enjoyable for daily shakes. My favorite is Omni pea protein, but some Brain Warriors use hemp protein or brown rice protein. When shopping for the perfect protein powder for your shakes makes sure to take a close look at the label. There should be no additives or added sugars in your blend. Many people enjoy making their own fresh blends by buying one each of plain hemp, pea and brown rice proteins and creating a mix they can easily add each day.
