In the Reboot Kitchen: Cha-Cha-Chia Berry Shake

By: Stacy Kennedy, MPH, RD, CSO, LDN; Reboot Nutritionist

This sweet shake is perfect for a quick and easy breakfast, energizing afternoon snack, and a pre- or post workout meal.  The dates lend a sweet flavor while the lettuce’s taste is literally undetectable making it a great way to add some veggies to your smoothie.  Pea based protein powders, like the Reboot with Joe Protein Powder, contain the most Leucine, an important branched chain amino acid – or building block of protein for muscle maintenance, especially during exercise or periods of caloric restriction.
