Directions for All Shakes

Thoroughly blend all ingredients together, adding ice cubes or cold water until the shake reaches desired consistency. You may make a large enough batch to last you through the day, but make sure to keep it refrigerated and remix as needed before pouring.

Tips for your shake:

  • Use frozen fruit and eliminate water/ice for a frosty, thick smoothie.
  • Mangos or peaches give your shake a nice zing.
  • Slice extra ripe bananas and freeze for easy use.
  • Increasing fruit will increase the sweetness but will also increase the calories and may interfere with weight management.

*If vegetables are used, there is no restriction regarding the quantity. When blending vegetables, it is recommended that a high-performance commercial drink blender be used.

Certain individuals may require additional protein during the program. Please consult with your health care professional about adding Whey Pro Complete to any SP Complete shake.

Salads and Salad Accents

Beet and Orange Salad With Citrus Vinaigrette

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Celtic Sea Salt®
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 medium beets, stems trimmed to 1 inch
  • 1 large navel orange
  • 8 large Boston lettuce leaves
  • 1-2 tablespoons diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice

Arrange beets in one layer in steamer. Cover tightly and set pot over high heat. When water boils, reduce heat and simmer beets 45 minutes. Transfer beets to plate and let cool just enough to handle. Cut tops and root tip off beets. With your fingers, pull and slide off beet skin. Cut each beet crosswise into 6 slices. Grate 2 teaspoons zest from orange and set aside. Cut off top and bottom of orange. Setting orange on one of its cut sides on your work surface, slice off peel in strips, letting knife follow the curve of the fruit. Cut orange crosswise into 8 slices.

To assemble: Line 4 salad plates with lettuce. On each plate, arrange 6 beet slices and 2 orange slices on top of lettuce. Sprinkle each with a quarter of the onions.

For dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together orange and lemon juices, vinegar, salt, and pepper until salt dissolves. Whisk in oil and add zest. Spoon dressing over the salad. Serve immediately.
