My Go-to Shakeology recipe

I went many months chugging my Shakeology because it was so nasty, but I hated to let it go to waste.  Then my husband started drinking it.  HALLELUJAH! I didn’t have to stomach it anymore.  THEN one day, I just happened to decide to try it again, and I found the magic recipe.  I just happened to throw the miracle ingredients together and made this masterpiece.  Now, this is the ONLY way I drink it.  Again, I hate wasting, and I would hate to try and new recipe and it suck and I have to throw it out.  I just stick with this one to be safe.

My ingredients

My ingredients

Chocolate PB cup:

1 scoop Shakeology (chocolate)

1 heaping tsp Peanut butter

1 3 second squeeze of honey (precise measurements only here : ) )

7 ice cubes

7 ounces of water

7 ounces of almond milk

Couple shakes of cinnamon

Butt load of baby spinach

Directions: Blend to smithereens.

YUMMMY!

If you follow the 21 day fix, this is a great way to get in a green or two.  I always shoot for two just in case I find myself short a green come dinner time. 

DSC_0080I would have taken a picture of my final product, but I mean it’s just a shake.  It’s brown.  Honest to God, you cannot taste the spinach at ALL!! Just try it, you’ll be glad you did.

‘Skinnied’ Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Oh my goodness….. That is really all the introduction these puppies need.

These little beauties are so yummy, AND they are great to satisfy your sweet tooth while staying on track.

Skinny Reese’s Cups

1/2 Coconut oil (melted, but not hot)

1/2 cup Cocoa Powder

1/4 raw honey

1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Organic (or not) peanut butter

Mix all ingredients, except peanut butter, until mixed thoroughly.  Pour into cupcake liners, regular size or mini.  Pour just enough to be your bottom layer.  Then place into freezer for bottom layer to set (about 5 minutes).  Next, pour peanut butter as second layer.  I actually melted it for a second in the microwave to make it easier to get into the cups, rather than spreading.  Lastly, pour on remaining chocolate.  Place back into freezer to set cups.  These are ready to devour in less than 15 minutes.

These do however, need to stay in the fridge in order to stay hard.  They melt easily.

This recipe made 6 LARGE cups.  They were actually too large, if that’s even possible.  My next batch I will make them in my mini muffin tin, and it will make much more.  I CANNOT wait.

I did take a picture, but it wasn’t very good.  THEN they were gone before I could get my good camera out.  Ooops, don’t know how that happened.  Go make these babies!

 

Getting back into the groove

Things are finally starting to settle down around here.  After a whirlwind of a couple of months I think I am finally starting to find some sanity.  What has changed since my last post in February? Where do I begin… 1. I started my own business. 2.  Working from home is great…. but it’s actually […]

Sprint Circuit

Sprint for 20 seconds, straddle and […]
