Blend up this LifeCafe shake in your own kitchen for a nourishing meal replacement or as postworkout fuel. The shake starts with a base of protein, which will help keep you satiated and energized. From there, mix-and-match the other ingredients to customize it to your desired taste. If you prefer a smoothie-like texture, subtract 2 to 3 ounces of liquid and add in 1 to 2 ounces of full-fat yogurt instead.
