Snickerdoodle & Oreo Protein Cookies

14581542_738488666960_2317237715070349502_n
Last night I decided to make Snickerdoodle Protein Cookies with the brand new seasonal Snickerdoodle Meal Replacement Shakes using our friend Brandi’s AdvoOreo recipe! They are so quick and easy AND DELICIOUS!

First of all these are seasonal shakes as well as the Caramel Macchiato and Pumpkin Spice shakes. So if you want some of these you better get them while they last because once they are gone they are GONE!

What’s Needed:

  • 1 cup almond flour or 1 cup of raw almonds made into almond flour in a food processor
  • 2 Packets of Snickerdoodle Meal Replacement Shakes
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup (or raw honey)
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • OPTIONAL: “Enjoy Life” Chocolate Morsels

Combine dry ingredients, then add wet ingredients; mix well. Dough will be sticky but drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet, then form into what looks like a cookie. They will spread just a little tiny bit while baking, but they won’t rise, so don’t make them too thin or too thick.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 mins (NOTE: Place oven racks closer to the upper middle of the oven).

If you would like to make the Snickerdoodle Oreo filling then while baking, prepare the filling in a separate bowl:

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 packet of Vanilla Meal Replacement Shake
  • 3 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • OPTIONAL: “Enjoy Life” Chocolate Morsels

Combine ingredients in a small container, refrigerate until cookies are cooled. This will thicken while you wait.

Once the cookies have baked, spread the filling on one of them then top it off with another.

Great tasting hint: If you leave them in the fridge over night they taste even better!

Protein Fudge Recipe! (ONLY 4 Ingredients)

AdvoCare Protein Fudge

Everyone that knows my wife knows that she’s an AMAZING cook! In addition to cooking incredible healthy Paleo meals she’s also made some Paleo desserts; however, she’s not the only dessert chef in this household! 😉 I’ve been eating pretty strict Paleo for the past 5 years now and any opportunity that I have to make a healthy or even “semi-healthy” dessert to satisfy my sweet tooth then I’m going to make it! My favorite healthy desserts seem to always revolve around figuring out ways to use more of our AdvoCare products and lately I’ve done just that by making “easy to make” PROTEIN FUDGE!!! This is by far the best one I’ve made yet and it only takes FOUR INGREDIENTS!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (melt it in microwave… usually takes 30 seconds to completely melt it)
  • 4 scoops AdvoCare Vanilla Muscle Gain powder OR 2 AdvoCare Meal Replacement Shakes pouch (any flavor)
    • Just a heads up… the BEST protein flavor we have tried so far is the White Chocolate Peppermint. IT’S DELICIOUS!!!
  • 5 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • OPTIONAL: “Enjoy Life” Chocolate Morsels
  • OPTIONAL: 1 scoop (use AdvoCare Muscle Gain Scoop) of PB2
  • NOTE: If you are only using 1 MRS then cut everything else in half.

STEPS:

  • Pick your protein flavor here first -> Meal Replacement Shakes (24g of PROTEIN)
  • In a small bowl mix all the above ingredients and stir until it’s beginning to come to a paste. It doesn’t take long, but you want to make sure that the coconut oil is mixed in really well.
  • Then pour the ingredients into an 8×8 glass baking dish lined with parchment paper.
  • Put in the freezer for about 30 minutes or until it begins to solidify.
  • Take the fudge out of the freezer and remove it from the dish by lifting the parchment paper.
  • Place the parchment paper and fudge onto a cutting board and using either a pizza cutter or a knife, cut the fudge into your desired shapes.
  • Place the cut fudge into a cover dish or Tupperware container and store in freezer until you’re ready to eat it!

Here are some photos of the fudge from us and our friends:

Launchapalooza 2.0 Is Where It’s At!?

AdvoCare Launchapalooza

Last year we had Launchapalooza 1.0, which was incredible! Several new products were released and all of them were incredible. This summer AdvoCare has decided to run Launchapalooza 2.0 and there have already been some awesome NEW releases and some oldies but goodies brought back!

AdvoCare On The Go OTG OnTheGo Official sports drink of major league soccer MLSThe first BIG surprise was that OTG (OnTheGo) was made available to consumers instead of just on the Major League Soccer sidelines! Let me tell ya’… DELICIOUS! I like all of them, but if I had to pick a favorite it would be Orange and I think Mariah’s would be Mango Pineapple. We went through the first few boxes so fast that we just ordered more today. We have been told that they’ll sell out for quite some time with the last remaining cases available until this Thursday June 18th. So if you’re going to order, ORDER FAST!

The next big surprise was the change to the distributor kit. When someone enrolls for the wholesale discount they now get THREE boxes of Spark instead of one box of Spark and one of Slam! That’s nearly $70 of retail product, a 20% discount. your own microsite to order whenever you want AND the ability to earn extra income for JUST $79 with ZERO monthly minimums, auto-ships, monthly fees, etc.! I have always said that it was an absolute no-brainer to enroll for the discount before, but now it REALLY is!

Advocare Distributor Kit Become an Advocare DIstributor ADVOCARE DISCOUNT
The latest product release came today in the form of the AdvoCare Peach Bars! This is the “oldie, but goodie” product! I remember these from when I started using AdvoCare products. They became unavailable for quite a while, but today they have just made a big comeback! Mariah has never had one so we made sure we ordered some of this “limited time only” bar TODAY! You do not want to miss out on these tasty snacks!

AdvoCare Launchapalooza Perfectly Peach Bar Peach Snack Bar

Green Apple Spark IS BACK!

When Green Apple Spark® was first released everyone went crazy over it (It’s what Mariah calls her “Happy Mommy Juice”). However, before we knew it the site said “Temporarily Out of Stock,” but it wasn’t why we thought. It wasn’t immediately restocked because Green Apple Spark® was coming back NEW & IMPROVED! So now, the moment we’ve been waiting for is HERE! Green Apple Spark® disappeared for a while only to come back in much smaller canisters and still in the easy to pour packets!!! It now has less volume, less calories, less carbohydrates, and still tastes EXACTLY the same and offers the identical effect of long lasting, healthy energy!  So we can get stick packs and new smaller canisters now! You mix both versions with the same amount of water and enjoy the same benefits and great taste! This will be super helpful with travel and portability.

AdvoCare green apple spark
For those of you that haven’t had Spark® yet, here’s the rundown: It sharpens mental focus, allows fast acting and long-lasting energy, contains over 20 vitamins, minerals and nutrients designed to synergistically provide a healthy, balanced source of energy AND IT’S SUGAR-FREE!!! This amazing product serves as an all-in-one solution that gives you a quick boost of energy that lasts for hours.

advocare watermelon pink lemonade sparkNot only is Green Apple Spark® back in smaller canister, but Pink Lemonade and Watermelon are too!!! All the flavors are coming out in the new smaller canisters and stick packs soon and are being phased in sporadically. With it being summertime and being out in the sun, Pink Lemonade mixed with Mango Pineapple Rehydrate is my jam! I like to mix my Spark® and Rehydrate flavors just like I used to mix my Kool-aid when I was a kid. Watermelon Spark® is another favorite flavor of mine. This was yet another flavor that when first released in canisters SOLD OUT in less than an hour. I was not fast enough on the draw to score one, but now that they are back for good, you better believe we will always have this one on hand and now that they are available in the new canisters, we can enjoy the same effects and flavor with fewer calories and carbs!

advocare fruit punch sparkBUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE! Like I said, all flavors will be available in the strip packs soon and Green Apple was the first flavor that debuted them. Well, now they have just released Mango Strawberry and my all-time favorite flavor FRUIT PUNCH!!! Did you like the taste of fruit punch Kool-aid as a kid? Well then you’ll probably like the taste of Fruit Punch Spark®!

A lot of my former coffee drinking friends, including my wife, have completely dumped the pot of day coffee habit and now just drink Spark®.

Did I mention you can get all these amazing products at a 20-40% DISCOUNT!? It’s an absolute no-brainer because you get over $58 in retail product just for enrolling as a wholesale customer at the 20% discount without the worry of monthly fees, auto-ships, monthly minimums to keep your discount, etc. It’s much like a Sam’s Club or Costco membership except you get so much more! Knowing how much I love Spark® made it very easy for me to decide to get it at a discount.

Crave Check Yo’ Self!

I’m not sure there’s been a product release that everyone has been more excited about than Crave Check SR™! There have been a lot of questions about it and what it does exactly. Well, here you go!

Crave Check SR is an innovative sustained-release tablet that combines non-thermogenic ingredients to promote weight management.* This new product also supports appetite control by helping to maintain healthy blood glucose levels already within the normal range.

The best part is… it’s ONLY $25.95 and you can even get a 20-40% DISCOUNT!

Crave Check SR™

Paleo Blueberry Crumble

Paleo Blueberry Crumble Cobler

This is one of our FAVORITE recipes not just because it’s EASY to make, but because it also tastes DELICIOUS!!! We saw a similar recipe at Elana’s Pantry for “Peach Crisp.” So because we LOVE blueberries we modified it and added an extra layer of dough on the bottom! Once you try this amazing recipe you’re going to want to buy stock in blueberries – IT’S THAT GOOD! The cool part is… you can make it with ANY fruit that you want! For an additional little dessert treat, you can make healthy ice cream to go along with it! You won’t need your Carb-Ease® Plus or Crave Check SR™ for this one!

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds blueberries
  • 2½ cups blanched almond flour (we use Honeyville – click here for the ingredients we use)
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter or palm shortening
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, combine almond flour and salt, (melted) butter, maple syrup, and vanilla
  2. Spread a thin layer of your dough on an 8 x 8 inch baking dish
  3. Once the bottom is covered, pour your blueberries on top of it
  4. With the remaining dough, roll small balls (crumbles) to place on top of the blueberries
  5. Bake at 350° for 35-45 minutes
  6. Remove from oven, then cool and serve

It even looks good being made! (See below)

Mariah and I are SO EXCITED about the additions to the AdvoCare product line and the changes that are coming! A couple weeks ago AdvoCare released the NEW flavorless fiber drink and the cleanse system! Then at Leadership School a BRAND NEW product was announced AND changes to everyone’s favorite product… SPARK!

Spark is new and improved. It now comes in less volume, less calories, less carbohydrates, and still tastes EXACTLY the same and offers the identical effect of long lasting, healthy energy!  So we can get stick packs and new smaller canisters now! You mix both versions with the same amount of water and enjoy the same benefits and great taste! This will be super helpful with travel and portability. Here is a comparison for you:

new advocare spark stick packs

 

So far Pink Lemonade and Mango Strawberry are available in the stick packs and the rest of the flavors are sure to follow! Now we won’t have to pack an extra suitcase when we go on long trips! 😉 The canisters are an even bigger change! They’re about half the size of the normal canisters and can literally fit in a purse! They will be released VERY soon!

Advocare crave check srThe brand new product that AdvoCare has released is called Crave Check SR™! Crave Check SR™ is aninnovative sustained-release tablet that combines non-thermogenic ingredients to promote weight management. This product also supports appetite control by helping to maintain healthy blood glucose levels already within the normal range. Works in conjunction with MNS®, AdvoCare Core™ or as a stand-alone product!

advocare sys eye creamCrave Check SR™ and Spark stick packs weren’t the only big announcements either! Drew Brees hinted to another new product to the DB9 series which we CANNOT wait for AND the SYS Eye Cream now comes in a canister as opposed to a tube making it much easier to use! Check it out:

There are so many upcoming changes that we can’t wait to hear about! I’m sure there will be much more to come!

 

It’s That Time Again… TO GO ALL IN!

advocare 24 day challenge

This is for everyone and especially those that joined us in January’s All-In 24-Day Challenge! We are excited to announce the BRAND NEW simplified version of the Herbal Cleanse System! This changes up the entire first 10 days of the Challenge, making it easier than ever! The new fiber drink is the best part in my opinion – flavorless, smoothest fiber drink yet, AND it can be mixed with ANYTHING!

This couldn’t have come at a better time because it has been 90 days since the last ALL IN Challenge, which means that IT’S TIME FOR ANOTHER ONE!

Phase One of the Challenge is never going to be the same! Instead of the way the first 10 days used to be with changes on Days 3 to 4 and 7 to 8… ALL 10 DAYS are EXACTLY the same! :)You’ll take your Spark, Probiotic Restore, afnd fiber drink every morning, Omega Plex at dinner, and the Herbal Cleanse tablets at night.

Brand new advocare fiber drink and herbal cleanse system

For the new fiber drink, the measurable differences are flavor and source of fiber. All three flavors provide 10 grams of fiber but Citrus provides more insoluble fiber – which does not absorb water and moves quickly through the digestive tract. the NEW unflavored fiber drink has a greater amount of soluble fiber – similar to Peaches & Cream – which means it’s gentle and better choice for those with sensitive guts, has better ‘mixability’ with any beverage which will assist with compliance and consistency of use, and less than half the calories of the other varieties. It comes down to individual preference between varieties and picking a Fiber you will take every day for all ten days of the Cleanse.

Did I mention you can get all these amazing products at a 20-40% DISCOUNT!? It’s an absolute no-brainer because you get over $58 in product just for enrolling as a wholesale customer at the 20% discount without the worry of monthly fees, auto-ships, monthly minimums to keep your discount, etc. It’s much like a Sam’s Club or Costco membership except you get so much more!
