Healthy Recipes for Recovering

CAKE PROTEIN SHAKE

- 1/4 frozen banana

- few crushed walnuts

- 1/4 c baby carrots

- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use Prodigy) and you can use 1/2 scoop chocolate 1/2 scoop vanilla. It's tasty that way.

- a bit of flaxseed

- cinnamon

- nutmeg

- vanilla

- you can add a touch of coconut extract or real shredded unsweetened coconut

- ice

- almond/soy coconut milk

Start with carrots and banana first in blender add liquid. Bled up. Add rest of ingredients.

Thought I'd share this shake recipe, as it was lunch on my second week of recovery. Fantastic. Helps to grind the nuts first

PEPPERMINT DAIRY FREE HOT CHOCOLATE

- 2 cups unsweetened coconut milk

- 2 peppermint tea bags

- 3 tablespoons cocoa powder

- honey, agave raw sugar or coconut sugar for sweetener

- crushed peppermints

- top with whipped coconut cream (refrigerate coconut milk…full fat and then when you open, scoop off the thick cream. whip that up with a bit of vanilla or peppermint extract)

In a pot combine coconut milk tea bags and cocoa. Mix and heat; allow a few minutes for tea to steep. Add sweetener to desired taste. Pour in mugs. Top with Coconut whip and crushed peppermints.

Recovery is going very well. I am pleased to feel more like myself before Christmas. It had its hurdles but nothing feels better than being on this side of healing. I look very forward to lifting again. Had to pop in and share these delicious drinks with you all.

Wish everyone a happy and healthy Christmas
