Bust out a SWEET @GenUCAN cinnamon blueberry smoothie!

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!
