Categories: Beverages, Fruits, Fitness, Low-fat
Yield: 1 Servings
1 c Orange juice; freshly
1/2 Ripe banana

1/4 c Chopped pitted dates

Alive with enzymes, this super drink combines high-energy and protein.
Great for weight-gain programs, too. You can cut some calories and
carbs by ommitting the dates.
Whir everything in a blender at high speed for about 30 seconds.
Per shake: 513 calories; 12 g protein, 17 g fat, 78 g carbohydrate
Nuts to you: Raw nuts (or seeds) and raw nut butters, available in
health-food stores, are an excellent way to get a spectrum of
vitamins, minerals, protein and the hard-to-get essential fatty acids
in their natural state. If that precious oil forms at the top of the
nut butter, don't pour it off. Stir it back in with a butter knife.
