Recipe – Homemade Peppermint Castile Exfoliating Scrub

This is seriously one of the easiest recipes I’ve made. I came up with this idea simply because I wanted to have a good exfoliating scrub to use in the shower but I am using up any products I have at home before I buy new ones. I had a bottle of Peppermint Castile Soap sitting under my counter that didn’t have a use right now. I originally bought it to mix with vinegar for our homemade cleaning spray – until I discovered that castile soap and vinegar don’t mix…..

We use other soaps for hand soap so I was left with a bottle that rarely got used. I ordered microdermabrasion crystals online a while ago to use with my face and body wash so I thought why not combine that with the castile soap for a homemade scrub!

The ingredients are only three things: An empty soap dispenser, a bottle of natural soap, and microdermabrasion crystals. I picked up my soap dispenser at Walmart for .88 cents. The Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Castile Soap you can find on Amazon. And the microdermabrasion crystals you can find on Amazon as well.

I simply poured soap into the soap dispenser until it was almost full. Then I added 2 tablespoons of microdermabrasion crystals to it. I shook it up and it made the soap foamy white. And done! The crystals will settle on the bottom of the soap dispenser so I shake mine up before I use it.

Now I have an all natural exfoliating scrub with no yucky chemicals in it! (^.^) I like the peppermint scent in the shower because it’s invigorating. I’ve used the scrub on my face and my body. I plan to make more scrubs myself in the future! I like knowing exactly what’s in my products and the words being easily pronounceable.

Recipe – Mango Kale Madness Smoothie

Here is another smoothie recipe for you using 310 Nutrition shake powder! As with all my smoothie recipes, you can use any powder you would like in it including weight loss and protein powders.

I made this one for my breakfast shake today. It’s a very yummy blend! It’s another simple recipe because the last thing anyone needs is a complicated recipe to make the process harder! (^.^)

Feel free to share the pic above with the recipe on it, I like to add my recipes on my pictures to make it easier to share.

Recipe:

1/2 cup of cottage cheese
1 scoop of 310 Nutrition powder (I used Salted Caramel)
1 cup of frozen mango chunks
1/2 cup of frozen kale
2 cups of water

Blend and enjoy!

Seriously, it’s just that simple. I would recommend keeping cottage cheese or yogurt on hand for your smoothies. It adds healthy calories to them as well as thickening them up a bit. I use plain yogurt to avoid the extra sugars in the fruit filled ones. Look for organic if you can, if not it’s okay! Use what you can afford to get. (^.^)

The Salted Caramel is really good when you mix things in with it! I found it too sweet mixed with just almond milk or water. The addition of non sweet things like yogurt and the frozen veggies help mellow out the sweetness.

Please understand these products are made slightly sweeter because that is how the general population eats. We’ve become way too used to overly sweetened foods as a society! Due to that, companies who make healthy shake mixes have to make things a bit sweeter because if they didn’t, everyone would complain they are too bland….

With any shake mix, do what you can to tweak the recipes before you give up on it!

Recipe – Tropical Green Smoothie

This morning I went outside and at 8am it was already HOT. This week we are having a heat wave so I thought a smoothie mix would be a really nice treat!

I used my 310 Nutrition Salted Caramel shake mix but this recipe can be used with any powder! You can use a nutritional powder, a protein powder, a weight loss powder, etc. Just add one serving of your powder to the mix and enjoy! (^.^)

Recipe:

-1 cup of water
-1 can of pineapple juice 6oz
-1 organic Greek peach yogurt 3.5oz
-1/2 cup frozen spinach
-1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks
-1 cup of ice
-1 scoop of Salted Caramel 310 Nutrition shake powder

I blended this all up in my Ninja Master Prep blender and it was ready to serve! This made 2 and 1/2 tall glasses full of smoothie for me! I found the taste to be even better than expected, especially since I found the Salted Caramel to be a little too sweet for my taste by itself. This mix was REALLY good and not overly sweet! On top of that, I couldn’t taste the spinach at all.

I added up the calories and it has 378 according to MyFitnessPal. Not a bad morning breakfast! I had to force myself to drink all of it because I felt very full long before I got through the whole thing. I do try to drink it all just to ensure that I get all the calories my body needs for the morning.

Recipe – Watermelon Cucumber Alcoholic Lemonade

Here’s a quick fun drink recipe for you! (^.^)

This Watermelon Cucumber Lemonade IS alcoholic so it’s meant for the 21+ crowd!

I put 20 oz of water in a glass mason jar. I mixed in one packet (1 serving) of 310 Lemonade into the water. Then I blended up cucumber slices and added 1/2 cup of the cucumber puree to the jar. Next I added a shot of watermelon vodka to the jar. I put the lid on, and shook it up really well! Lastly, I added 6 ice cubes to it to keep it cool while I sipped on it. And the final touch – my stainless steel straw which I *LOVE*! They are AMAZING for cutting down on plastic use and waste!

This recipe was adapted from my bartender friend who makes hers with regular store lemonade. I had 310 Lemonade sample packets I was waiting to try, so I figured I’d use them in this recipe!

You can use slices of cucumber if you don’t want cucumber puree chunks in yours. I like the flavor and the cucumber bits in mine so I blended it. (^.^)

You can add however much vodka you want, just remember that Smirnoff Watermelon Vodka has 65 calories per shot in case you are watching your calorie count! As the recipe is shown, the calories are approximately 90 per drink.

Recipe – Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Shake

My 310 Nutrition Sample Starter Pack arrived yesterday! I had already had my daily shake so I patiently waited for today to try a new flavor out. This morning I tried the chocolate and boy am I in love! I like it way better than the Vanilla Chai flavor. Keep in mind, taste is subjective. I am not trying to tell you one flavor is bad and one is good, I’m just sharing my preferences. (^.^)

I mixed up a simple recipe this morning to try my chocolate shake in. I added one 8oz cup of coffee to my blender, 1 cup of water, 1/2 cup of So Delicious Dairy Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl ice cream, and one scoop of chocolate 310 Nutrition powder. I blended it all up and it came out super tasty! Like my last shake recipe, this one also filled up 2 tall drinking glasses for me. They were so good that I chugged them both right away!

This recipe can be used with any powder! You can use a nutritional powder, a protein powder, a weight loss powder, etc. Just add one serving of your powder to the mix and enjoy! (^.^) I would recommend a non-fruity powder with this recipe though, as the ice cream is a chocolate peanut butter flavor that might not mix well with some fruity flavors.

Recipe – Pineapple Banana Cream Shake

I decided to join the 310 Nutrition Community on Facebook because it’s always great to have a community with others who are trying to be healthy! One thing I’ve picked up on really quick is that making your shakes into something fun can help a lot! Recipes are shared daily and it’s been really fun to see all the combos people create. (^.^)

This recipe is one I created this morning and I’m sharing it in the group as well. I was thinking of things I could do to help make the Vanilla Chai flavor more enjoyable for me until the other flavors arrive. I knew I had a few small cans of pineapple juice in the fridge so I figured I’d add that and go from there! Low and behold, I had some Arctic Zero Banana Pudding in my freezer that needed to be used. Arctic Zero is not my favorite brand as I find their ice cream to be hard and not taste that great. I figured putting it in a smoothie would probably be the best way to get it gone.

I mixed one scoop of 310 Nutrition Vanilla Chai with 1 small can of pineapple juice, 1 cup of water and 1/2 cup of Arctic Zero Banana Pudding ice cream in my Ninja blender. It made 2 tall glasses full for me, and I drank them one after the other to get really full and see how long that fullness will last me through the day.

This recipe can be used with any powder! You can use a nutritional powder, a protein powder, a weight loss powder, etc. Just add one serving of your powder to the mix and enjoy! (^.^)
