Shakeology and its Low Glycemic status is actually the buzz that got me to try it, in a time where I was desperately trying to get my Diabetes under control.
Can you guess which Shakeology flavor scores the lowest? FYI, an apple rates a 39 on the Glycemic Index! This is a really great read.
Yum this is one of my all time favorites! I love me ANYTHING with caramel/caramel flavoring! Do you feel the same way about caramel?
Ahhh, peanut butter. You can never go wrong with peanut butter! You can also use any other nut butter – I am sure it works with all of them! (and now I am on a quest to find out…)
Would you try it?
Can I get a YUM?!
Creamy Vegan Mac-n-Cheese
10 ounces dried macaroni (or about 2⅔ cups)
1 cup diced yellow potatoes
¼ cup diced carrots
⅓ cup chopped onion
¾ cup liquid from pot of boiled veggies
½ cup raw soaked cashews
¼ cup canned coconut milk
2 1/2 Tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon Himalayan salt
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
Soak cashews in boiling water for 15-30 minutes while you cook everything else.
Cook macaroni according to package instructions and drain; set aside.
Bring 2-3 cups of water to boil in a small pot. Place chopped potatoes, carrots, and onion into the boiling water, and cook for about 10 minutes, or until vegetables are tender and soft.
Use a slotted spoon to remove the veggies from cooking water, and place them in your blender (a high-powered blender works best).
Add ¾ cup of that cooking water to your blender, along with the remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth.
Pour sauce over cooked macaroni noodles and enjoy! Great over broccoli or other veggies!
Mmm watermelon… I simply do not care if summer is on it’s way out – I will eat or drink watermelon year-round!
A great snack, easy to make, good for you, portable… so many reasons to make these little babies, especially for those days you need a treat but don’t wanna bust out a whole carrot cake (can anyone actually eat just ONE slice of that stuff!?)
Store these in an airtight container in your fridge and they keep for up to a week! 🙂
Would you try them?
A little citrus to lighten this up a bit! Really good blend of flavors, for me!
Does this combination intrigue you?
Mmmm perfect time for this!
If you use more ice, it becomes thicker, and like a froyo style!
Ahhh summer and Peaches really do go hand in hand, am I right?! You can also do peaches that aren’t frozen – the frozen peaches add a little thickness and a lot of coolness to a hot summer day!
