Favorite Skinny Gut Shake Recipes

 

I’m having a great time using Renew Life Skinny Gut Ultimate Shakes!  It has become an easy habit to get up and go straight to my blender to begin making my morning shake.  Because I’m trying to stay away from sugar most of the time, sometimes I prefer to indulge in more chocolatey type shakes, to give me my chocolate fix.  Sometimes, I like it extra chocolatey and add a tablespoon of cocoa powder and a little NuStevia to sweeten the shake a bit more.  But other times, the nice pink shade of a Strawberry Vanilla shake gets me excited and makes me feel like I’m having my favorite Strawberry Shake from Sonic….well, almost anyway.  LOL.  They do, however, make me feel like I’m having dessert for breakfast!

 

When preparing my shakes, I’ve learned to add my powder while the blender is already blending some liquid.  That way, the powder doesn’t stick to the side of the blender jar and it gets mixed in nice and smooth.  I’ve also learned that I prefer my shakes extra cold, so I always blend ice or frozen strawberries as part of my recipe.  Sometimes, I even stick it in the freezer for a while for an extra frosty treat.

Strawberry Vanilla Shake

10 oz of almond milk

1 scoop of Renew Life Skinny Gut Vanilla Shake Mix

 

Unnamed-1

 

Place almond milk and frozen strawberries in blender and blend on high for 30 seconds to a minute.  After it is nicely mixed, add your scoop of Skinny Gut Shake Mix while the blender is still running.  Let it mix together well for another 30 seconds or so.  Pour into your glass and enjoy!

 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake

Chocolate Peanut Butter Skinny Gut Shake Recipe10 oz almond milk
4-5 frozen strawberries or a handful of ice
1 Tbsp of Cocoa Powder
1 Tbsp of Powdered Peanut Butter
1 pinch of NuStevia
1 scoop of Renew Life Skinny Gut Chocolate Shake Mix

 

Unnamed

Place almond milk and frozen strawberries or ice in blender and blend on high for 30 seconds to a minute.  After it is nicely mixed, add your scoop of Skinny Gut Shake Mix, cocoa and peanut butter while the blender is still running.  Let it mix together well for another 30 seconds or so.  Taste.  If you’re a dark chocolate lover, this may be plenty sweet for you, but if you prefer your chocolate sweeter, you may need to add a little bit of NuStevia to make it just sweet enough.  Pour into your glass and enjoy!   That’s it!

 

These shakes are super easy and so delicious.  Next week, I’ll share just how I’m doing on this program and if I’ve noticed any changes in my health…so stay tuned!  And as always, if you have a little weight to lose and would like to join me on my weight loss journey, please do in our Facebook group called Sidetracked by Weight Loss!  You can also follow the Skinny Gut conversation by following hashtag #SkinnyGutShake on Facebook and Twitter.

How to Make Snow Ice Cream ~ Recipe

Are you getting sick of the snow yet?  We actually haven’t gotten much this year, here in Kansas, but I hear most of the rest of the United States did.  This past week, we had our 2nd snow of the “snowy season”.  We had a few inches on the ground and it promptly melted by the next day.  It just happened to be the day that my daughter had to go to the doctor in a town 2 hours away…so most of the kids didn’t enjoy playing out in it.  My teenagers, however, stayed home and before we were even half done with our day, my 15 year old daughter had texted me, asking if she could make snow ice cream.  I told her, sure, just make sure the snow is clean….and especially not yellow.  LOL  I knew she’d love the thought of yellow snow.

We got home and she made us all some fresh snow ice cream.  We were pleasantly surprised how much we enjoyed the snow ice cream.  In fact, I even let my 11 month old baby try some….and she was really mad when the bowl was empty, lol.  (She was eating her peas here….right before she got some ice cream…)

Slow Cooker Maple Glazed Chicken & Sweet Potatoes

I’m trying to eat healthier, so I’m always on the look out for anything with vegetables and sweet potatoes.  This one, I originally assembled backwards and it created mushy sweet potatoes that were over boiled on the bottom.  I’ve fixed that, by moving the sweet potatoes to the top and getting it out of the liquid as well as shortening the cook time.  Plus, I cut them into too small pieces.  Other than my mushy potatoes, it was really good (and I’ll show you how not to have quite as much mush in your finished product).  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!   (This post contains affiliate links.)
