Have a Shake to Boost Your Energy ~ With a Delicious Greek Yogurt Shake


Studies are now showing how healthy Greek yogurt is for the body. It is low in sugar, lactose and liquid whey. It is about the same number of calories as its regular counterpart but packs double the protein and half of the carbohydrates and salt. 

Adding bananas to this shake adds much needed potassium, fiber and vitamin C. It is also an energy booster. Dark chocolate is wonderful for your heart and cardiovascular system. It lowers both blood pressure and cholesterol. Studies have shown that consuming just a small amount of dark chocolate each day has lowered the blood pressure in individuals with severe hypertension. 

The coconut, while it does contain saturated fats, a small amount of it added to your drink will help you to feel full longer, helping to ward off any temptations to eat unwanted calories. The coconut flakes have fiber and fats, both pretty much canceling each other out, but it does add wonderful third flavor to the the shake.


Ingredients:

1 ripe banana, peeled and cut into smler pieces
1 cup plain Greek yogurt, cold
1/2 cup milk, cold
2 oz. dark chocolate, melted
2 T. coconut milk
2 T flaked coconut
1 T maple syrup
1/4 cup crushed ice

Place all ingredients into your blender and blender on high for about 45 seconds. Pour into a large glass and enjoy!
