It's OFFICIAL! The New Year Intermittent Fasting Challenge is starting on Monday, January 6th 2020! We're kicking off the new year and new DECADE by tapping into fat burning mechanisms, boosting energy levels, eating drool-worthy food and finally feeling GOOD again!


If you haven't already joined in on the Challenge, it's not too late! Head over HERE to join thousands of AENpeeps around the world in the New Year IF Challenge!


In celebration of the upcoming Challenge, today I'm sharing a smoothie recipe that I have been loving lately. If you're an OG AENpeep, then you'll notice that one of the ingredients isn't typically used in my smoothies (can you guess which one??), but it still follows the AEN Nutrient Timing discussed in the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle. I was feeling a change in ingredients - especially with the change in DECADE.


You can swap this smoothie in for any of the smoothies or break-fasts within the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle throughout the Challenge. One note: if following the 7 Day IF Detox, you will want to opt for an unsweetened, unflavored protein or collagen.

Greek Berry and Cream Smoothie

Serves 1

Ingredients:

10-12 oz. water or unsweetened coconut/almond milk

5.3 oz. container of full fat, grass-fed greek yogurt* (see below for the vegan option)

1/4 cup frozen blueberries

1 serving vanilla or unflavored collagen or protein powder**

1 Tbsp. chia seeds

1 Tbsp. almond butter or peanut butter

1-2 Tbsp. cacao nibs (optional)


1. Combine all ingredients except for the cacao nibs in a blender and blend until smooth. Optional to top with 1-2 Tbsp. unsweetened cacao nibs. This surprisingly satiating smoothie is an excellent way to break your fast throughout the upcoming New Year IF Challenge. Enjoy!


*If you are plant-based, I recommend swapping the yogurt for 2 Tbsp. coconut cream.


**If you are using yogurt, opt for the collagen or you can completely remove it. If you are plant-based, I recommend the protein powder route. The yogurt provides a fairly high amount of protein and therefore the protein powder isn't necessary.


Don't miss out on feeling GOOD again in 2020! Head over HERE to join in on the New Year IF Challenge!
