EAT TO GROW SHAKE OF THE ISSUE Prep time: 4 minutes x Serving size: 1 BERRY BLAST! Make this shake for more power, greater gains and to boost your entire body into a muscle-building machine! By Maria Romano Livingston, MS, RD When it comes to making a shake before or after your workout, there’s nothing more annoying than fumbling with a lot of ingre- dients. We get that. That’s why we made this simple berry blast shake. With only six ingredients, you won’t be wasting time measuring, chop- ping or weighing ingredients when you should be sipping. The best part? You can make this shake in less than five minutes! Why is this shake perfect for you? The berries pack in so many an- tioxidants and vitamins that your body will be powered up with energy that can fuel any workout. Also, the yogurt provides a creamy taste that complements the tart and sweet flavor of the berries and cranberry juice all while the two scoops of strawberry whey pack in more protein than many people get in their dinner!
