My Good Morning Shake

Well I call it my good morning shake, but its quick, convenient and yummy at any time of the day, even pre or post workout.

1 scoop of Herbalife Formula 1 Strawberry Shake
1 tablespoon porridge oats
1 teaspoon extra virgin coconut oil
250ml of soya, coconut or almond milk
Several pinches of cinnamon
several ice cubes

Simply blend all ingredients together and drink.  Optional extras are a small handful of nuts and seeds or your favourite fruit or berries, chopped and either blended in the shake or eaten on the side. 

Coconuts contain MCFA's (medium chained fatty acids) these are not readily stored in the body but are absorbed directly from the intestines and sent to the liver to be metabolised where they are mostly burned as fuel. This will lead to greater fat burn and extra energy output.  Also the high protein content will keep you full for longer.
