With only 10 days till Christmas it's the perfect time to give this festive Gluten Free and Dairy Free Eggnog smoothie a try!
It's packed with plant based protein and so easy to make! Just pop all the ingredients into your blender and blend for 10-30 seconds. I topped mine with coconut whip cream, cinnamon, and a cinnamon stick but this is an optional (but delightful) step.
This Christmas dairy free eggnog smoothie has close to 30g of plant based protein and is vegan friendly. It can be used as a post workout meal or add rum for some holiday cheer ;).

Fits Your Macros is an easy and flexible diet plan that is based around consuming a carefully calculated amount of Protein, Carbs, and Fats on a daily basis. This means you still get to eat your favourite foods while dieting as long as it fits within your limit. Your macros and calories will be tracked by using the Desire Fitness app. Your nutrition coach will have access to your diary to make suggestions on how to improve or answer any questions you may have. Can I have a set menu rather than a macros diet plan? Yes, the option for a set menu plan is available. The set menu is custom made based around the foods you enjoy to eat, any dietary restrictions, and doesn't require any macro counting. A custom menu program is an additional $75 (plus gst). What will my workouts involve? Your program will be a combination of strength and endurance training. There will be 2 programs (4 weeks each) assigned to you over the 8 weeks. Minimal equipment is needed and there will be video demonstrations on how to complete the exercises. If I wish to stop participating in the challenge can I get a refund? Once the challenge has started your fee will become non-refundable. This non-refundable policy is in effect because you are provided with confidential workout plans and a custom diet plan. It also ensures that the prize pot amount stays fair. I have injuries or illnesses, can my program be modified? Yes, when you register please notify Desire Fitness of any injury or illness that may impede your diet or workout plan. The appropriate modifications can then be made to your program.
