While it’s almost impossible to get bored with the delicious Simply Fit Shakes from South Beach Diet, you can introduce new ingredients to customize the flavor and enhance nutrition. Simply Fit Shakes are easy to enjoy and provide your body with amazing nutrition and 20 grams of protein! Enjoy one of these chocolate or vanilla Simply Fit Shakes as a delicious morning snack or addition to any meal, and add in some simple, healthy and satisfying foods to “shake” up your menu.
Try these 11 tasty twists on your traditional Simply Fit Shakes from South Beach Diet:
1. 1 cup of spinach
Add some color to your Simply Fit Shake with fiber-rich spinach! One cup of these lovely leafy greens can liven up your shake and add tons of vitamins, nutrients and minerals. Spinach is known for its high fiber content to keep you full and improve your digestion.
2. 2 Tbsp. of nut butter
Everyone can enjoy a creamy chocolate and (pea)nut butter shake by choosing 2 Tbsp. of healthy nut butter, including ones made from almonds, cashews and our favorite, peanuts. These types of nut butters are just as tasty and are also loaded with healthy fats, protein and fiber to support your weight loss with the South Beach Diet meal plan.
3. 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt
Greek yogurt can enhance the already delicious taste of either Simply Fit Shake flavor and also help create a thick, milkshake-like consistency. Greek yogurt also provides the body with tons of calcium, protein and probiotics to keep you fit and healthy. Thanks to the addition of Greek yogurt, this power-boosted protein shake will also greatly improve your metabolism and appetite control.
4. 1 cup of almond milk
Almond milk is a popular alternative to regular milk for those looking for something that falls under the dairy-free category. Upgrade your chocolate or vanilla Simply Fit Shake for enhanced flavor as well as additional protein, vitamins and nutrients from tasty, nutritious almond milk.
5. 1/2 cup of fresh berries (once you hit phase 2)
Sweeten up your shake with your choice of strawberries, blueberries or raspberries (or a combo), which can be frozen or fresh. You’ll not only add some delicious fresh fruit flavors to your shake, but you’ll also add loads of powerful antioxidants, vitamins, nutrients and fiber to support your healthy lifestyle and weight loss goals.
6. 1 frozen banana (once you hit phase 2)
Frozen bananas are a natural choice to upgrade any shake with increased antioxidants, essential nutrients and vitamins. As a leading source of potassium and fiber, bananas are ideal for your weight loss goals, digestive health and more. Plus, the classic flavor combination of a banana-chocolate shake is just too tempting to pass up!
7. 1 Tbsp. of flaxseed
Even in small amounts that will be almost undetectable in your shake, seeds contain loads of beneficial essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients. Toss a tablespoon of ground flaxseed in your Simply Fit Shake to enjoy a healthy content of unsaturated fat from omega-3s, as well as high amounts of protein and fiber, which will support your healthy weight loss on your South Beach Diet meal plan.
The superfood avocado goes well with just about everything, so there’s no reason not to put one in your shake! Try a new twist on your Simply Fit Shake and add an avocado to provide your refreshing shake with a silky new texture, as well as enhanced flavor and taste. Not to mention, avocados are high in healthy fats, fiber, potassium and many other vitamins and nutrients to support healthy lifestyles.
9. Unsweetened coconut (once you hit phase 2)
Whether you want to choose coconut water, oil or milk, coconut is a versatile fruit and superfood you should have in your diet in some form due to its unique content of healthy fats. Create your own vanilla-coconut Simply Fit Shake and enjoy a rich, flavorful taste that’s packed with healthy fats to stabilize your blood sugar, reduce your hunger levels and help manage your weight. You can use 1 Tbsp. of coconut oil, 1 cup of coconut milk or 1 cup of coconut water to enhance the flavor and nutrition of your shake.
10. Oats (once you hit phase 2)
Nutritious whole-grain oats are loaded with fiber, healthy fats and many different vitamins and antioxidants to support your weight loss. Adding a ½ cup of oats to your shake will help you feel fuller, improve digestion and control your blood sugar throughout the day. Change up the texture and taste of your shake with a handful of your favorite flavor of breakfast oats!
11. Pumpkin (once you hit phase 2)
Pumpkin is a true superfood and a high source of fiber, potassium and beta-carotene—a powerful antioxidant. You can honor this nutritious, low-calorie fruit year-round by adding some to your South Beach Diet Simply Fit Shakes to attain a rich consistency and mild flavor in your creamy treat. Try 1 cup of cubed pumpkin or use one can of unsweetened pumpkin puree to enjoy added weight loss benefits from this vitamin-packed, high-fiber superfood.
