Trying out UCAN, and LOVING IT!
Thought I'd share a new smoothie recipe that I can't get enough of!
As you may know, I am a Triathlon Coach with Lifetime Fitness and Lifetime is connected with UCAN. It's a great nutrition and hydration product line that utilizes natural sweeteners and no sugars. The superstarch line is great for energy and I recently experimented with implementing it with a blueberry smoothie.
I have been trying out the cinnamon flavor and it's AWESOME in smoothies, not so much as a coffee additive. ;) Yes, I tried it in coffee and it doesn't really work out well. Stick to smoothies and mixing with water.
On to the recipe!
Here's the breakdown:
Oikos Triple Zero Plain Yogurt - 0.5 cup
Blueberries - 0.5 cup - I freeze them - YUM
Almond Breeze Unsweetened Original Almond Milk - 1 cup
UCAN Cinnamon Superstarch - 1 scoop
PB Fit Peanut Butter Powder - 2 tablespoons
Lifetime Fitness Grass Fed Vanilla Whey Protein - 0.5 scoop
Ice Cubes - 1 full tray
Just toss it in a blender and ice crush to mix fully. Just that easy.
Here's the nutrition breakdown.
Just pour in a cup and enjoy the flavor and energy high! Heads up - don't drink a few hours from when you want to go to sleep as it might interfere with going to bed and actually being able to get to sleep in a timely manor. Hours of steady energy, focus and no sudden crash!
