The number one problem that people on the paleo challenge struggle with is getting that sweet tooth under control. I feel your pain. Three days into my first challenge I felt like I would rather eat my own shoes than eat another salad. Enter the Paleo Frosty. This is NOT a pre or post workout shake. This is what you turn to after dinner when you start to here the siren song of Cupcake Royale.
This thing is loaded with natural fats and sugars. Several sugar starved cave people have told me that it is the best shake they’ve ever had. Of coarse this is akin to having the best saltine of your life after not eating for 2 weeks. Just the same, it scratches the itch and keeps you from falling off the paleo-wagon and depending on how you are scoring your challenge, can cost zero points against your caveman cred.
The Paleo Frosty:
1 can coconut milk. (I prefer the regular milk but some can only handle the low fat)
2-3 whole pitted dates (all the sugar, none of the points!)
5 ice cubes
1.5 Tablespoons baking cocoa- the unsweetened bitter stuff
That is the base I add cashew butter sometimes and frozen fruits are solid too.
Put it all in a food processor or a burly blender and serve it in a champagne glass.
