Candy Cane Shakeology

For our next holiday Shakeology recipe, what could be more appropriate than Candy Cane? I put peppermint extract in my chocolate Shakeology all the time but I never thought about trying it in vanilla! It was a lovely change up from plain vanilla and I think this one will be in my rotation from now on. I didn’t have vanilla almond milk on hand so I used my unsweetened original almond milk and just added 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Perfect!

Sugar Cookie Shakeology

Yum! These holiday themed Shakeology treats have been super delicious! Next up we have Sugar Cookie. With the help of butter extract and vanilla this is also reminiscent of birthday cake. You can leave out the vanilla pudding mix if you want and it is still quite delicious just a bit less sweet and decadent.

Peppermint Mocha Shakeology

The next of our holiday themed Shakeology drinks! This peppermint mocha is perfect in place of your regular cup of coffee. I often use peppermint extract in my chocolate shake and the addition of coffee in this one was super yummy! The original recipe called for 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract but that was a little too strong of a peppermint flavor for me, so I decreased it to 1/2 teaspoon. Definitely experiment with yours to see how much you like!

1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
unsweetened almond milk, to taste
Crushed ice

*For an extra punch, after you blend, add two teaspoons of crushed candy cane, and pulse the blender twice. I found this gave a nice little crunch and added minimal calories!

Gingerbread Latte Shakeology

A fellow coach and I are running a 12 days of Shakeology group where we are sharing 12 holiday inspired Shakeology recipes and so far they are DELICIOUS! I’ll be sharing the recipes here over the next few weeks so stay tuned!

First up is a definite favorite of mine, gingerbread latte! I actually much prefer this to Starbucks syrupy version. We dressed up our shakes with whipped cream for the sake of the photos but really, you don’t need it! These shakes are tasty enough on their own.

Crockpot Maple and Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin

Maple and Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin

My number one most popular recipe on this blog is the Brown Sugar and Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin and for good reason, it is easy (hello, crockpot) and insanely good. However, I have pretty much kicked refined sugar to the curb and I wanted to make a 21 Day Fix friendly version. After a little experimentation I came up with a new twist on the old favorite and, trust me, it is JUST as good!

Ingredients: 

1-2 lb pork tenderloin
2 tsp ground sage
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 – 1/2 cup of water (use 1/4 if you have a 1lb tenderloin, 1/2 if it is 2 lbs)

For the glaze:

3 tbsp maple syrup
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp coconut aminos (or low-sodium soy sauce)

Directions:

Combine sage, salt, pepper and garlic in a small bowl. Prepare loin by trimming any fat and patting dry with paper towels. Rub the sage mixture over all sides of the pork. Place in crock pot with 1/4-1/2 cup water. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

About 1 hour before roast is done, whisk together ingredients for glaze in small sauce pan. Heat and stir until mixture thickens. Brush the pork with the glaze 2 or 3 times during the last hour of cooking. Serve with remaining glaze on the side.

6-10 servings. 21 Day Fix: measure out with your red container and count as one red serving.

This is fabulous served with brussels sprouts and mashed cauliflower.

Broccoli and Bacon Penne with Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce

Broccoli and Bacon Penne with Cauliflower Alfredo - 21 Day Fix Approved

I saw a post recently for cauliflower Alfredo sauce and I thought, hmmm, I’ve already had success with cauliflower pizza crust and cauliflower mash so why not, right? Do you ever think we are going to look back at our cauliflower and kale obsession and be like WHY? Ha. But, for now, I am going to take every chance I can get to sneak extra veggies into my meals. I took a couple different recipes and changed them up to be 21 Day Fix approved. After trying it over plain noodles, I thought it could use some texture and flavor so I came up with this broccoli and bacon penne loaded up with the cauliflower alfredo and it was AWESOME (leftovers were also terrific when reheated).

Ingredients:

For the Alfredo Sauce:
8 large garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp olive oil
5-6 cups cauliflower florets
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 cup low fat milk
1 cup vegetable broth

For the pasta:
8 oz whole grain or quinoa pasta
2 cups broccoli florets
8 slices nitrate free turkey bacon

Directions:

For the Alfredo sauce:
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the cauliflower and cook, covered, for 7-10 minutes or until the cauliflower is fork tender. Drain and set aside.

While the cauliflower is cooking, saute the garlic in the olive oil over low heat. Cook for a few minutes until the garlic becomes soft and fragrant, being careful not to overcook or brown. Remove from heat and set aside.

Transfer the cauliflower, and garlic/olive oil to a blender. Add the vegetable broth, milk, salt and pepper. Blend until the sauce is smooth and creamy. Add additional broth as needed to reach the desired consistency.

This makes roughly 5 cups of sauce. Extra sauce can be refrigerated or frozen.

For the pasta:
Cook the pasta according to package directions, drain and place in a large bowl.  Cook the broccoli until fork tender, chop, and add to bowl. Cook the bacon according to package instructions, chop, and add to bowl. Add in desired amount of cauliflower Alfredo sauce and mix to combine until you reach the desired consistency. Serve immediately.

This would also be amazing with some parmesan cheese sprinkled on top!

Bacon Cheeseburger Salad with Creamy Dijon Dressing

Bacon Cheeseburger Salad - 21 Day Fix Approved

I combined several different recipes together to create this “deconstructed” bacon cheeseburger salad with a creamy dijon dressing. It sounded delicious in my head but I wasn’t sure how it would turn out… well, I LOVED it! It totally satisfied my cheeseburger craving PLUS gave me an extra serving of greens which is definitely better than a side of fries! Plus, it is completely 21 Day Fix approved.

If you aren’t familiar with the 21 Day Fix but would like to know more about it or how to get fit and healthy, send me a message!

Ingredients:

1 lb lean ground beef (preferably grass-fed, organic)
6 slices uncured, nitrate-free, turkey bacon
1 small (or 1/2 large) red onion, finely diced
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
1 14.5oz can diced tomatoes, drained
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4-6 cups salad mix
1/4 cup 2% plain Greek yogurt
1.5 tbsp Dijon mustard
1.5 tbsp rice vinegar
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Cook turkey bacon in a large skillet. When done, remove from pan and allow it to cool slightly before dicing. Dice the turkey bacon and set aside.

Add the beef to the skillet and cook, breaking up the meat, until brown and cooked through. Drain the meat, if needed, and return to pan. Add turkey bacon, onion, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and tomatoes to the skillet. Stir to combine, cover, and allow to simmer for 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

While the meat is simmering, prepare the salad dressing. Combine yogurt, mustard, and vinegar in a bowl, mixing well with a fork or whisk. Slowly add the oil, whisking constantly, until blended. Season with salt, if desired.

Sprinkle the cheese over the top of the meat, recover for a few minutes, and allow the cheese to melt.

Divide greens and top with meat mixture and dressing and serve immediately.

Servings: 4-6
For 21 Day Fix: portion out the greens with your green container (roughly 1 cup), the meat mixture with your red container (roughly 3/4 cup) and the dressing with your orange container (you may only need 1/2 of the orange container worth of dressing).
1 green, 1 red, 1 blue, 1 (or 1/2) orange
