Completed Day #1 of the Best Body Boot Camp. Getting organized and prepped for it was really easy, Tina provided all the information, I just needed to put in the work, and work I did, wow it was a great workout.

So after my workout I wanted to really fuel my body, so I made a Recovery Smoothie with fruits and spinach.

Recovery Smoothie Recipe:

  • 1 Cup Coconut Milk
  • 1 Scoop Protein Powder
  • 1 Banana
  • 6 Large Strawberries
  • 1 Handful Spinach
  • 6-8 Pitted Cherries
  • 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 Scoop Date Sugar
  • 2 Ice Cubes
  • 1 Handful Kashi Cereal (added to the top as a garnish)
Blended and served immediately.

The banana and spinach were fresh and the cherries and strawberries were frozen from my smoothie stash.

Today I added a little Swanson Organic Date Sugar into the mix, I really wanted to see if it would sweeten it up a bit.

Date sugar is a lower calorie and healthier option to brown sugar. Two of the little scoops are only 30 calories. I only used a 1/2 of the scoop, just to give it a try. Verdict, I liked it, and it did give the smoothie a sweeter flavor that it needed. I look forward to using in a muffin recipe that I plan on making.

I really love the little scoop that it came with.

Loaded  up the smoothie maker and let it run for about 45 seconds, I had to shake it up a bit and run it for another 30 seconds to really blend the ice cubes well.

This is just what I needed. This will hold me over until dinner tonight.

I also added a handful of Kashi Heart to Heart Cinnamon Oat Cereal.

Question of the day: What’s your favorite cold cereal?
