I am so thrilled to have another tasty “Healthy Alternative” Shakeolgoy recipe for you today!
I am not lying when I tell you this shake takes JUST like a Samoas Girl Scout cookie! I gave my roommate a sip and she loved it so much she whipped one up right after me.
I am actually not a huge fan of coconut but I do love Samoas…weird right? Well as you can see in the comparison image a serving size is only 2 cookies. I could probably eat 6 in one sitting so those calories, fat and carbs quickly add up in the 2 seconds it takes to eat them.
Luckily my Samoas Shakeolgoy hits the spot, keeps me full and has SO much more protein. I drank mine this morning right after completing The Fix Challenge, a bonus DVD in the 21 Day Fix Extreme program that can be used to substitute out a Cardio Fix workout during the week.
This workout is different than the normal DVDs since there is no breaks at all. It is a vigorous 30 minute bodyweight workout featuring a variety of high-intensity moves. There are 13 moves in all and you do 4 reps of each.
The first move is surrenders which anyone who has done the original 21 Day Fix will remember, then you add on inchworms, hi-lows, hip dips, side planks, push-ups, cross knees, leg lifts, burpees, sumo jumps, lunge jumps, curtsy lunges and skaters.
You start with surrenders, then add on each move one by one starting from the surrenders each time until you have added them all onto the series. You repeat all 13 two times through at the end. This workout makes surrenders seem like a piece of cake!!
I definitely earned my shake after this one!
