MRP and Almond Milk

I don’t normally plug supplements, but I was approached about a year ago to lead the recipe development for the launch of www.ketologic.com, and I cannot say enough good things about this company and their new products. Everyone that I have worked with has been very professional, polite, diligent and direct. They are much more ethical than a lot of supplement companies out there, and their products seem to be very legit. The feedback from individuals that have used these ketogenic supplements has been nothing but positive thus far. I would recommend that anyone looking to pursue a ketogenic diet take a look at the meal replacement (MRP) mix offered by www.ketologic.com. It is an easy and natural way to supplement the day’s calories when life gets too hectic to find a meal that fits within the strict macronutrient restrictions.

Try mixing your next meal replacement with a cup of unflavored, unsweetened almond milk. You’ll be surprised at how much it enhances the flavor and the creaminess of your next shake, but with only an added 30 calories and zero effect on total carb intake. Also, try throwing it in the blender with a few cubes of ice for a “milkshake” on a hot day.

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 scoop MRP (flavor of your choice)
  • 8 ounces unflavored, unsweetened almond milk
  • 4 ice cubes (optional)

PREPARATION:

  1. Simply mix together 1 scoop of MRP with 8 ounces of almond milk or combine both with the ice in a blender and mix until smooth.
  • Yield: The recipe makes one serving.

  • 2 tablespoons cashews

Mocha Cookies and Cream Smoothie

Mocha Smoohie

This month’s recipe is a complete breakfast that feels like a guilty pleasure. While it may taste like dessert, it is a nice balance of protein, carbs, healthy fats and caffeine that are perfect for starting the day. This smoothie is great for those that like to work out in the morning. Drinking half of it can make for great fuel before your training, and finishing the other half afterwards is perfect for recovery and continuing on with the rest of the day. Smoothies are easily digestible, also making them convenient for providing the energy needed during activities such as a long bike ride or hike. I like to keep mine in a hydro flask to keep it cool, and I sip on it throughout the morning to stave off hunger for much of the day.

The recipe yields about 4 servings.

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 1 tablespoon almond, cashew or peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons cashews
  • 1 tablespoon dark chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (optional)
  • ½ cup strong, cooled coffee
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1-2 cups ice

Preparation:

  1. Combine all ingredients except the ice in a blender.
  2. Add one cup of ice and blend until smooth.
  3. Add more ice if needed for texture and/or temperature consistency.

8-ounces (1 cup) is one serving.
