Healthy Recipe: Shamrock Shake

Like clockwork, as St. Patrick’s Day approaches, we also begin to see the trendy Shamrock Shake start sprouting up everywhere. People are posting about it on Facebook and hashtagging it all over Instagram, but to say the traditional version doesn’t fit into a weight loss plan is a gross understatement. But since it’s such a festive time of year, we don’t want you to completely miss out. That’s why we’ve created this healthy Shamrock Shake recipe. It’s got all the same minty flavor, but with a nutritional facts panel that’s much more digestible.

Traditional Shamrock Shake Versus Our Healthy Version

The traditional Shamrock Shake is a blend of vanilla yogurt and a proprietary “shamrock shake syrup” topped with whipped cream. All together, this combination contains around 30 ingredients, which include high-fructose corn syrup, liquid sugar, and artificial colorings. Our version contains only 6 easy-to-find ingredients.

A single medium serving of the traditional Shamrock Shake packs a whopping 560 calories, 16 grams of fat (10 from saturated fat), and 91 grams of carbohydrates (78 from sugar). Our version contains only 290 calories, 15.5 grams of fat (that are mostly unsaturated, healthy fats), and 39 grams of carbohydrates. Plus, a single serving contains 100% of the vitamin B-12 you need for the day and more than 75% of your vitamin A needs.

Product of the Month! Liver GI Detox by Pure Encapsulations

The winter months can leave you feel rundown, sluggish, and tired. It’s not just the cooler weather, but also the tendency to sit around and eat more comfort foods. Well, once again, summer is right around the corner and we’ve got just the thing to help you get rid of that sluggishness and feel good again.

The Science of Detoxification

Your liver is one of your body’s major detoxification pathways. It cleans and filters your blood, breaking down substances like ammonia, alcohol, chemicals, medications, and other waste products, so that your body can kick them to the curb.

Your gastrointestinal (or GI) tract is another major detox pathway. It allows you to absorb the good stuff (like proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals) and then prepares the waste products for excretion (we won’t go into further detail here, but you can probably guess what we’re talking about).

When either of these detoxification pathways isn’t working properly, toxic waste can build up in your body. Over time, this toxic buildup can make it harder for you to lose weight. The Pure Encapsulations Liver-GI Detox helps make sure both the liver and GI pathways are working well so that your body is properly removing toxins as it should.

Liver GI Detox Ingredients

The supplement contains N–acetyl–l–cysteine and alpha lipoic acid — two antioxidants that help bind heavy metals and boost the production of glutathione (another antioxidant that helps prevent free radical damage). The supplement also contains:

  • Sulforaphane — a compound that comes from broccoli sprouts and helps maintain healthy colon function.
  • Glycine, taurine, and methionine — amino acids that help neutralize toxins.
  • L–Glutamine — an amino acid that helps you absorb nutrients and keeps your intestinal tract healthy.
  • Artichoke extract — promotes healthy flow of bile, supports liver cells and blood flow in the liver, and helps move things along the digestive tract for elimination.
  • Chlorella — a green “superfood” that helps clean and purify the blood.
