Those of us who have goals in the gym or on the field can’t afford to use St. Patrick’s Day as an excuse to “wet the shamrock” come March 17. Not only would chugging pints of green beer overload us with empty calories, it could also potentially make March 18 equally as unproductive if we were too banged up to train.
That being said, we can still be festive without taking in alcohol or overdoing it on the corned beef and cabbage. Along with wearing your finest green-colored Dri-FIT shirt to the gym, you can take down one of these green and delicious P4 Energy Formula Shamrock Shakes before you work out!
We opted to use almond milk instead of dairy, which is low in protein and calories, but features monounsaturated fat and vitamins A and D. Feel free to use the moo juice if you’d like. Either way, expect one heck of an energy boost, thanks to P4’s workout supplement Energy Formula. Using ingredients such as a fast-acting carb loader, an electrolyte complex (sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium), and caffeine, Energy Formula not only delivers an energy rush, it also helps ward off cramps and aid hydration. Best of all, it’s NSF Certified for Sport, which means Energy Formula contains ZERO ingredients that are found on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s list of banned substances.
Here’s how to make it, lads and lassies:
½ cup almond milk (unsweetened)
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
½ medium-sized avocado
1 cup baby spinach
5-7 mint leaves (optional)
½ tsp ginger powder
1 cup frozen peach slices or frozen mango cubes
1 scoop P4 Energy Formula
Make it: Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Add more milk to achieve desired consistency.
