I love waking up and hanging with Rocky, our family’s pug mix that we adopted a couple of months ago. Here’s Rocky hanging with me on his favorite spot in the kitchen…
Speaking of mix, I was experimenting with Shakeology today. The reason is because I like using our Magic Bullet mixer for the simple fact that it’s sized perfectly for one serving. But, when I made my shake yesterday, it was sooo thick that the Magic Bullet had a hard time. So, today I decided that I would use half of the Shakeology mix and make two smaller shakes instead of one large shake.
So, here’s how I made my first batch of FRUIT PUNCH Shakeology for the Magic Bullet
6 oz. Orange Juice
1/2 Cup of Low Fat Organic Cottage Cheese
2 tbs of liquid flaxseed oil (mixed by hand into the cottage cheese)
2 frozen strawberries
20 g Berry Shakeology mix (approx 3 tbs or half of the single serving packet)
Then mix it all up in the Magic Bullet for about 10-15 seconds and you’ll end up with a very smooth, very tasty berry Shakology. By the way, you can substitute low fat yogurt for the cottage cheese and flaxseed oil combo. I use the combo to help with my colon issues. If you have colon issues, I highly recommend the combo instead of the yogurt. Trust me, you don’t taste the cottage cheese!
I love the taste, love the consistency and love the fact that I can now bring my Shakeology to work and mix it up in my favorite Magic Bullet. Plus, now I get two shakes which really fills me up.
I also eat healthy snacks, like a power bar or a piece of fruit or some veggies between meals which gives me all the energy and nutrition I need to make it through the day!
