Two sort-of sweet treats

Who is gearing up for the LuRong Paleo Challenge? C’mon it’s a fitness challenge too. Come to the informational meeting on Thursday night after the 6pm wod. If at the very least to hear about the challenge, listen to success stories and get good recipes that are full of nutrients, protein, good fat and good carbohydrates to fuel your body for grueling wods.

This smoothie has made it into my weekly recipe schedule and it will continue to do so until I’m sick of it. It’s pretty awesome.

Pumpkin Spice Smoothie from the 21 Day Sugar Detox cookbook (also author of Practical Paleo, another great cookbook)

This smoothie would be great for those 3pm blah’s at work, it’s sweet and filling and could be enough to fuel your afternoon wod. =)

Servings 1-2
1 C full fat coconut milk, canned (Thai Kitchen FULL FAT coconut milk can be found at Kroger in international isle)
1/2 C water
1 green-tipped banana
1/4 C canned pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Small handful ice (optional)
1-2 Scoops of whey protein powder (I use About Time Protein because it only has 4 ingredients in it, use coupon code JULIE 25 for discount, it’s great)

Blend and enjoy.

1 green apple, peeled cored and chopped

2 TBSP Almond butter

1 TSP vanilla extract

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
