Laila Ali's green power shake recipe
Try this protein-packed shake!
Former professional boxer Laila Ali shared this recipe for her green power shake, that is featured in her new cookbook, on "GMA" today.
"Protein shakes and smoothies don’t have to be boring and uninspiring anymore, thanks to a greater availability of fresh ingredients and some innovative mixing and matching," Ali wrote in her debut cookbook "Food for Life." "This recipe transformed my morning smoothie from a chore to something special to wake up to!"
In a blender, combine all the ingredients except the ice. Blend, starting on low speed and finishing on high speed, until smooth.
Add the ice and blend again, starting on low speed and finishing on high speed, until smooth, adding more water if your shake is too thick
Variation: Swap in coconut water or maple water (see page 250) for the water for their mildly sweet flavor and electrolyte content.
