Carrots bring a dose of sweetness, as well as beta-carotene, vitamin C, and fiber. Apples are a great source of fiber, too, while the spices—cinnamon, cloves, and ginger have anti-inflammatory properties. The quinoa in this shake recipe creates the creamy, thick texture with an additional nutty flavor and a dose of fiber, protein, and minerals. Walnuts and flaxseeds lend a rich nutty flavor in addition to providing omega-3 healthy fats.

This recipe is flexible based on what you have on hand. Apples could be replaced with fresh or frozen mangos or pineapple for the perfect sweetness. Quinoa provides a creamy texture, but could be replaced with frozen zucchini or cauliflower. Walnuts could be replaced with any chopped nuts you prefer, such as pecans or almonds. If you prefer a lighter shake, you could use water instead of non-dairy milk.
