PLEASANTON, Calif., Oct. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Today is Global Smoothie Day, which celebrates how smoothies blended with whole foods are an easy and delicious way to obtain key nutrients. This year, recognize this fun holiday by enjoying a refreshing smoothie with Shaklee, a leading wellness and sustainability company that developed the first plant-based protein supplement in the world.
To celebrate, whip up Shaklee’s “Strawberry Acai Bliss” recipe featuring its protein-packed Life ShakeÔ. Combine 2 scoops of Shaklee’s Strawberry Acai Life Shake, 8 oz. of your favorite milk alternative, ¼ banana, ½ tablespoon nut butter, and a handful of ice in a blender and enjoy!
Adding Life Shake to your smoothies creates the perfect meal. Life Shake is a convenient, delicious, complete meal replacement with 20 grams of protein, 6 grams of fiber, and 24 essential vitamins and minerals. By incorporating Life Shake into any smoothie recipe, you are getting the added benefits from key ingredients like organic chia & pumpkin seed protein, plant-based protein, and added leucine – a key essential amino acid that helps preserve your lean muscle mass. This combination supports energy and provides essential nutrients beneficial to overall health. Life Shake is available in a variety of flavors and soy and soy-free formulations.
“Smoothies made with milk – or nondairy milks like oat or almond milk – are a great way to get additional protein into your diet, and in particular, the branch-chain amino acids,” added Jamie McManus, MD, FAAFP, and Chair, Medical Affairs at Shaklee. “Protein scores high on satiation, meaning it satisfies your hunger because it is slowly digested and absorbed compared to carbs or fat. This also means it has less of an effect on blood sugar (glycemic index), which also helps with hunger management.”

“Shaklee has been at the forefront of nutrition since Dr. Shaklee invented the first multivitamin in the United States in 1915,” said Roger Barnett, Chairman and CEO, Shaklee Corporation. “Holidays like Global Smoothie Day are great reminders to focus on improving our healthy choices to fuel our body with balanced nutrition to help create the foundation for a longer and healthier life.
Global Smoothie Day was founded by Rhea Mehta, PhD, in 2015. As a molecular toxicologist, who spent years suffering from digestive issues, Dr. Mehta was able to solve her health issues with a change in diet and lifestyle that included regularly consuming smoothies blended with whole foods. Smoothies can be a great way to incorporate several nutritious foods into your diet. From fruits to vegetables, this beverage helps nourish your body with the essential vitamins and nutrients that it needs.
