Pumpkin Smoothie Recipe for Fit Mixologists

Here’s a recipe I whipped up to mentally prepare for fall even though I’m hanging onto the last days of summer as tightly and nostalgically as I can.  I call it Pumpkin Spice Soy Smoothie. As much as I dread cold weather and leaves turning (they're literally dying...it's so sad!), pumpkin flavored foods and drinks always cheer me up.  My Pumpkin Spice Soy Smoothie makes a nice breakfast or post-workout snack for healthy people who want pumpkin without the pie and a preview of Thanksgiving minus the alien baby in-yo-belly feeling! Besides, it’s still August and I, for one, would like to stretch out crop top season a little longer. You're gonna need these tools before you get started: A blender. I recommend a single serve blender like the Nutribullet or Magic Bullet. A flexible ice cube tray like this one A bendy straw (not really a tool but what the heck)   Ingredients and recipe (serves 1): 1 can organic pumpkin...

Berry Good Popsicle Recipe - Dairy Free!

Last summer around this time, I went dairy-free. It hasn't been easy and I've definitely veered here and there but I feel much better when I limit my dairy intake.

The simpler, the faster, THE BETTER! Check out my homemade recipe for Berry Good Popsicles using the new Unsweetened Silk Almond Coconut Blend milk that literally just arrived in grocery stores.

Is There A Healthier Gum?

-- This is a guest post by Anna Bernstein --

When I was first introduced to PÜR Gum I thought, who needs “healthy” gum? I never thought of gum as being unhealthy, but seeing all the reasons PÜR Gum is a healthier chewing gum made me second guess my opinion. PÜR Gum is said to be healthy because it is gluten-free, non-gmo, nut-free, dairy-free, and most importantly aspartame free. Who even knew there were so many ingredients in gum?

Aspartame free gum is a big deal. The reason being that aspartame is a synthetic sweetener found in most sugar-free gums. It has been associated with cancer, diabetes, psychological disorders, and birth defects, just to name a few things I'd rather not subject myself to.

I know many people chew gum to stop their hunger, but does this really work?  While doing some research I found that chewing gum actually will make you more hungry. While chewing gum you produce a lot more saliva and any food that is in your system will be...

A "Winning" Chocolate Protein Smoothie Recipe

Katia Lin, winner of my Rainbow Light Protein Energizer Giveaway, just wrote in to share her latest smoothie recipe. Check it out!

Hi Mizzfit

Just finished my workout and off to class with my chocolate-PB-and-nana shake!

The recipe is:
1 cup of skim milk
1 scoop of Rainbow Light chocolate protein energizer
1 frozen banana
1 Tbsp peanut butter

I'm addicted to peanut butter and what's better than having my peanut butter AND some chocolate? The answer is nothing. The Rainbow Light Protein Energizer is great because it has all the chocolatey loveliness without any added sugars. I'm feeling energized and ready to take on the school day. Thanks!  --Katia Lin
