Last day of Beverage week. After finding these recipes there are so many that I want to try! I chose this one because who doesn’t love cinnamon rolls? Well other than my 5 year old? Every time I go to the mall I pass Cinnabun and think, Man I want one, but I don’t want to destroy my whole day by getting that really big Cinnabun. This way I can get my cinnamon bun fix without those at least 800 calores lol.
1 frozen banana, cut into four pieces
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pure maple syrup
Cinnamon stick, for garnish
- Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth, and add more almond milk if necessary.
- Pour into a tall glass, add the cinnamon stick for garnish, and enjoy.
Makes one serving

This recipe was chosen because I am always looking for new energy bars that taste good. It is really hard to find one that taste good AND doesn’t have tons of sugar.
- 1 cup rice crispies (brown or white, or certified gf) (30g)
- packed 1/2 cup oat flour (70g) (Or make your own by grinding rolled oats in the food processor until they turn into a fine powder. Measure after blending.)
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3 tbsp roasted cashew butter
- 5 tbsp agave (Honey will work, but is not for strict vegans.)
- optional: a handful of sprinkles
- optional: replace up to half of the oat flour with your favorite protein powder
Combine all dry ingredients and stir well. In a separate (large) bowl, combine wet and stir to form a thin paste. (If your cashew butter is cold, warm it a little for easier mixing.) Pour dry into wet (not the other way around), and stir until evenly coated. Line a baking dish or Tupperware container with a large piece of wax paper and pour the mixture into the dish. Fold the extra paper over the mixture and squish down as hard as you possibly can! Use a heavy object to really press it down. (The mixture will fill a 7×5, or about 2/3 of an 8×8.) Stick in the fridge or freezer to harden before cutting into bars. Store in the fridge or freezer. Makes 6 bars.

Day two and Day three of T focus 25 finished. Yesterday’s workout my son did with me. Today I did it while he was having his breakfast. He was a little upset that he could not “help me” and made me promise to let him workout with me tomorrow. Today’s workout was total body workout. I notice I had to do a lot of the modified version. That did not bother me since I know I will be able to better myself every single day. I am a work in progress.
This week’s challenge is for me to eat every 2-3 hours. I know what some of you think. I wonder if that girl is eating whole meals every three hours. Uh. No…. three meals a day and small snacks. I tried the tropical strawberry shakeology this morning with coconut milk and it taste a lot better. Thanks to the girls on Facebook for suggesting it to me. I will be sure to update you when I try it with the almond milk. There is also a recipe calendar with different ingredients you can put in it. I had no idea that my son robbed it and had it in his room. Little guy must of taken it whiles I was looking at the other stuff from the box.
What workout are you doing?
