Peachy-Lime Strawberry Smoothie

  IMG_1079

Breakfast smoothies are my go-to morning food.  They are time saving, can be drank on the way to work plus there are so many different flavors that can be created, I never get bored.  But not all smoothies are created equally or provide the same nutritional value.

 In March of 2015, I began using Shakeology when I looked at the ingredient list and was pretty impressed.  I was willing to put my current protein powder aside and put it to the test.  Within 3 months, my face had cleared up, my energy increased, my cravings were manageable, my thinking was clearer and my digestive tract was running like clockwork.  Shakeology is more than a protein powder but made from whole food with vitamins and nutrients that support a healthy lifestyle.  Even on days I miss my nutrition mark, drinking Shakeology secures my body one sound meal.  Want to know more – email me at debra.hallock@gmail.com Remember recipes give a direction to head but are suggestions and one can most the time exchange similar ingredients in an out to achieve general destination.

Favorite Product – Coconut Stevia

Did you know you can be an adventurer without climbing Mt Everest by just going to the market?  It takes quite a bit of courage to try a new food but more often than not that new addition has more uses than what we initially bought it for.

Coconut Stevia

One day I was  doing my food shopping at Sprouts and there it is – just waiting for me – whispering in my ear about all the fun we could have together.  Okay maybe it wasn’t doing that – but I picked the product up – looked at the price ($12.50), set it back down again – picked it up again because this was Coconut Stevia.  I quickly placed it in the cart – you see if you do it quick it’s almost like you’re surprised at the checkout – “Oh how did that get in there?”  You can pick up from Amazon for $9.99 – Here

Now the good news is that you only use a few drops at a time allowing the bottle to go a long way in the kitchen.  I’ve already used it in the following recipes and just made a coconut chia pudding with homemade cashew milk.  Yum!  Check back on Wednesday for the recipe. 

Lemon Treats
Last week I made these Lemon No Bake Treats using this recipe. I made a few changes to the recipe by eliminating the gluten free pretzels and replacing with 1/2 cup of macadamia nuts plus a few drops of the coconut stevia. I rolled them in balls and then dipped into some pastel rainbow sprinkles.  They were enjoyed by coworkers, my daughter and my 2-year-old grandson said “More please.”

Tropical Delight
The stevia is also used in the Tropical Delight Smoothie recipe.  The amount of ice used in this recipe will determine the thickness – you decide whether you want a milkshake or soft serve ice cream consistency.

One more idea – sparkling water, a couple of squeezed lemon wedges and a few drops of the coconut stevia provides a coconut enhanced lemonade.

What ideas are coming to your mind?
