Share Your Shake: Awesome Annie Style

Annie and I have been friends for about 15 years (quite a long time when you’re the ripe old age of 26!). Today, she’s sharing her shake with us:
I suffer from IBS and as a result I am very conscious of my health. I stay away from oily food and food with too many grains. I need to eat every few hours as I have low blood sugar, so I pack a Herbalife chocolate and peanut bar in my bag as a snack to fill the gap. I also enjoy the bigger Herbalife Energy bars because they fill me up and are easy to pack into a bag or lunchbox.  I really enjoy the Herbalife shake – it tastes delicious and is a fun way to make a quick breakfast. I’d like to share with you how I make my Herbalife breakfast shake.

1) The ingredients I use, from left to right: I like the Herbalife vanilla-flavoured shake but I am interested to try the other flavours sometime as well. I usually choose smooth yoghurt so that it isn’t too sweet with all the fruit bits. I often use 1 small tub of yoghurt but sometimes 2 if I want to bulk up the smoothie a bit more. Bananas are also good for IBS sufferers as they are a natural way to alleviate an upset stomach. They also have important magnesium and potassium which helps prevent muscle cramps. I use Liqui Fruit or Ceres fruit juice because it does not have any added sugar and is made with 100% fruit. I choose low-fat milk as creamy milk is sometimes too rich for me. I also like to keep the fat content down in the foods I eat. I use a Russell Hobbes hand-held blender which is easy to use and clean. It comes with the jug (pictured) in which I make the shake.

3) I then add the 2 bananas. I have tried making the shake without them but I prefer the thicker consistency.

5) I put in about 2 tablespoons of fruit juice to include more fructose in the shake.
6) I add the full small tub of yoghurt.

7) I blend all the ingredients together for about 5-10 seconds. It is important to push the blades all the way to the bottom of the jug so that all the banana chunks are mixed into the shake.

8) The mixture makes about 3 glasses of shake. I will usually drink 1 for breakfast and put the other 2 in the fridge uncovered to drink later in the day. The banana tends to go a brownish colour because of the exposure to oxygen but it still tastes delicious and it is a lovely, healthy refreshing drink for the summer.
For variation in the shake, I will sometimes also blend in nuts, sliced-up peaches (without the stone), cherries or strawberries. Sometimes also a few small pieces of chocolate 🙂
