As mentioned in some of our previous blogs, healthy fats are where it’s at nutritionally speaking, such as those found in avocados, organic pastured egg yolks, raw nuts and seeds, unheated organic nut oils, and coconuts and coconut oil. Today, we’d like to share one of our favorite healthy shake recipes, which contains an abundance of these delicious healthy fats. This is not just your every day, average protein shake, but a complete meal that will keep you satisfied for hours. Delish!!
