TROPICAL PARADISE "SWIRLY" SHAKEOLOGY


I know I'm usually on here touting about my love of nutrition, health & fitness, but the truth is... I have a very deceiving love affair with swirly drinks. Yes, swirly drinks. Ya know, the kind that oozes out of a machine that has been so nicely swirling your favorite flavor{s} into frozen concoctions? Yea, that's a swirly drink. I countdown to my very first PIDA of the season {Pain in de ass - for all of you Ocean City Seacrets virgins}, and literally melt at the first sip--the perfect combination of rum runner-meets-pina colada. Swirled, appropriately. But, I don't discriminate against any swirlies - catch me at a Fat Tuesday and I'll mix-and-match any flavor I can get my mouth on.

So, leave it to me turn a nutritious-packed Shakeology into a Summer tastebud-pleasing flavor. Adding in bright fruit like pineapple and peaches, mixed with a Strawberry pack of ShakeO, gives this power-shake the flair of swirlies, with a teeny tiny fraction of the calories - and absolutely NO guilt. Though, admittedly, I totally feel guilty sucking this down - it's that deceivingly good! Trust me when I tell you that I have thought more than once about adding a splash {or two} of liquor to this bad boy - but I almost feel like ShakeO packets across the world would shudder. Sans alcohol, the only ingredients you need are:

  • 1 packet Strawberry ShakeO {or 1 scoop}

  • 1/2 cup frozen peaches

  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapples

  • 1 cup fresh spinach

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened original almond milk

  • Ice to your liking

Throw it all together in a blender {no rhyme or reason} and blend until smooth. Then sip, melt, and try to refrain from grabbing the rum...
