Banana Power Shake

The following recipe is from Marcia Zimmerman’s book, Eat Your Colors™ book. You will feel best and function best if you eat foods that are harmonious with your body type. If you don't know your body type, there is a questionnaire in her book that will help you determine it. Then, you can enjoy the wellbeing that comes from eating foods that are right for you.

Start your day with a high-protein "power shake". This is also a great pick-me-up in the afternoon, especially for children on their way to soccer practice or other after-school activities.
Ingredients
6 Tbsp. pineapple juice or any real juice without sugar (NO orange juice)
½ banana or ¼ cup other fruit such as berries
1 Tbsp. honey or 1 - 2 drops NOW Stevia
1 Tbsp NOW Lecithin
1 tsp. flaxseeds
Contents of 2 plant enzyme capsules
Ice cubes (to thin to drinking consistency)
6 Tbsp. soy or rice yogurt
1 heaping Tbsp. soy protein isolate low-carb powder

Blend all ingredients in a blender or drink mixer. Add ice cubes to achieve desired consistency.

You can use this beverage as an easy way to get your child to take their dietary supplements.

Lecithin is a source of acetylcholine, essential for optimal brain function. Flaxseed is a source of omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. The enzymes help digest the protein. 

I recommend two power shakes a day for children and adults, one in the morning with breakfast and one as a pick-me-up mid-afternoon.
