The 21 Day Smoothie Challenge (Day 8-14)

So, how did you do with week 1? We find that replacing a meal with a smoothie is not only a great way to get some nutritional goodness into your body but it is also a great way to take your meal on the road. You can make your smoothie before you head out to work and drink it for breakfast or save it for lunch.

Here’s the Shopping List for this week: (if you started with us last week, you may have some of the ingredients so only buy what you need.)

Day 8

Manic Monday

2 tablespoons raw cacao nibs
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup coffee, cooled
4 tablespoons coconut milk
1 1/2 tablespoons raw honey
1/4 tsp of Vanilla extract
1 handful of ice
 
Brew the coffee first to give it time to cool. While your coffee is cooling, add all of the other ingredients together in a blender, or Nutribullet. Once the coffee is cooled, add it to the blender and blend until smooth. Add some cacao nibs on top for an extra crunch.
 

* You can brew the coffee the night before and place it in an ice cube tray. The next morning just pop them out and throw them in the blender.
* If you are not a coffee drinker, add 1/2 a scoop of protein powder (chocolate or vanilla) Mama Kat prefers Vanilla whey protein powder.
