Realistic Cooking Ideas

for Busy People! And sharing our life adventures along the way!

In mid-July I am starting Beachbody® 21 Day Challenge with a group of people who are dedicated to taking their lifestyle to the next level! As such I will be going through older recipes and converting them to the container system for anyone who might be following their program. Their Shakeology® formula is wonderful and is much better than the protein shakes I was using to start my days. Over the upcoming weeks and months I will be sharing my journey as I continue to transition to whole foods and an overall healthier lifestyle.

I am a Beachbody coach and you can find more information through my Beachbody webpage. On the left-hand side, you will find a link to my profile, how to purchase any products, and additional information about the company and success stories.

Today I am sharing a delicious recipe for a Chocolate, Banana and Almond Shakeology! It is a great way to start your day or enjoy after a workout. Shakeology comes in different flavors and I used Vanilla for this recipe. All I needed to do was add a teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa to transform it into a chocolate shake! For a thicker shake use 8 ounces of Vanilla Almond Milk. Another option is 8 ounces Vanilla Almond Milk and 4 ounces spring water. (Be sure to use unsweetened ingredients as you do not want to add sugar to a healthy recipe.)

Add the ingredients to a blender that can chop ice cubes. Pour in your Shakeology Shaker Cup that you can take on the run to enjoy a healthy breakfast or replacement meal!

    I’m totally into smoothies and start most days with one.

      I use to do a protein shake and a banana. Now I am hooked on Shakeology since it is so much more. I found as I increased my workouts and reduced my calories that I needed to really re-think my food. 🙂

    I’m looking forward to following along during the challenge. I’m still focusing on a Paleo “based” diet and always looking for healthy options to change things up.

      You can make it thick and use a spoon or add more Almond milk or water for a thinner consistency. Either way it is delicious!!
