Gingerbread cookies–but better!

I always feel guilty eating ginger bread cookies because I eat the heads off first or maybe the arms. Then they are headless or armless little men. I feel bad for them, but then they are a cookie that is their duty in life – to get bitten. Ha!

But what if I could make a gingerbread cookie smoothie that didn’t involve eating a head or an arm? I would love that! No guilt on either part!

Well I will do just that. Tada! Gingerbread Man Shakeology!

Go forth and MAKE!

How about some apple pie with that….

Fall shake line up.

UP NEXT…..

Apple Pie.

This is so good y’all! I wasn’t sure I’d like it because it has applesauce in it but I was so wrong! Not a big applesauce fan. It’s a texture thing.

I bet even better next time if I use applesauce with cinnamon in it that it would be killa illa illa!!

Shakeology for Fall Y’all

fall-pumpkins-and-leaves

In honor of the first official day of Fall how about we get things kicked off right!

You better believe it when I say -

Fall is my favorite time of year! The smells, the crisp air, the colors, the foods, the pies, the football ~ everything!

Since introducing shakeology to my nutrition, I’ve fallen more and more fond of it and I cannot wait to try some of these recipes for my favorite time of year! They have all the right ingredients to keep me away from the pie table but fill that craving! Plus I get the added bonus of doing something so nutritious for my body it’s got to be illegal! Shakeology alone is truly the superest superfood on the Planet by far! Is superest even a word?? Oh well…. it is today SmileSmile

Yep, everything from pumpkin pie to candy canes! Each week I will share my favorite finds. So to my current and future shakeology fans, I hope you fall in love with them just as much as I already have!

You can create you own too. If you have a knack for making recipes, share one of your ideas here! Sharing is caring yo! Smile

For all you (and me) everything Pumpkin lovers, lets start off with a Pumpkin Pie Shakeology. Now this one you can do with either Chocolate or Vanilla. Either flavor will work.
