Whether it’s early in the morning, and the thought of breakfast is less than appealing; you’re looking for a delicious post – workout fortifying shake; you want to curb mid – afternoon hunger pangs; or go light and have a shake for dinner, you are not alone. I’ve used my shake for any and all of the above reasons. For a quick, delicious and nutritious shake, I prepare one of my Protein Plus ® shakes.


  • 1 package of naturally flavored and sweetened chocolate, vanilla or mocha protein plus packets.
  • Mix with 10 – 12 ounces of almond milk (my favorite is Califia Farms Unsweetened Toasted Coconut Almond Milk),
  • One packet of  David Kirsch Wellness Super Charged Greens®
  • Two teaspoons of chia seeds(contains healthy omega three fatty acids, calcium and antioxidants)
  • One teaspoon of wheat germ (which provides plenty of B vitamins, fiber, vitamin E, phytosterols,to name a few of its nutrients)
  • One teaspoon of organic cacao chips (all the antioxidant benefits of chocolate without the sugar and the calories)
  • Handful of ice


My favorite blender is the Vitamix 750 – it makes the perfect smoothie.  For a little added flavor (and calories too), I’ve been know to add one of the following: organic berries, banana and a teaspoon or two of fresh ground almond butter.  Happy smoothie making!
