Inside the February InStyle, available on newsstands and for digital download now, the actress dishes on how she first met fiancé Justin Theroux, her plans to pull off a secret wedding, and everything she does to keep her face (and body) in fighting form. In addition to exercising 4-5 days a week, Aniston starts each day with a healthy homemade shake. She gave us her signature recipe ("Don't forget the trace mineral drops!") and we swear that it's actually delicious. "Everyone says I should market it!" she raves. Not a bad idea: Though the rich, chocolaty drink tastes suspiciously like a milkshake, it's actually teaming with vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber. Get the recipe below—and say cheers to a better body in 2015.
