How do you Do It In December?

It’s just about the end of the month (year) and we are in the thick of December and Christmas holidays! We’ve had our Big Fat Rebel PT Christmas Quiz Night, been sledging, been to the cinema and run 28 #5kaday (s) so far… not to mention bootcamp in the snow, beach training in the snow and countless quality streets and mince pies. Keep it coming we say and plenty of shining examples of how us #Rebels are doing-it-in-December! Read the blog here on how we planned to #doitinDecember and check out the awesome smoothie recipe and homemade granola recipe that trainer’s, Eilidh and Alice shared with us too.

Eilidh’s famous Super Berry Smoothie Recipe*

450g bag of frozen berries

Pot of Natural yoghurt, if you prefer a flavour look for strawberry (P.S this will change the sugar content)

100ml of milk

25g of porridge oats

2tbs of honey (optional)

*Eilidh later confessed to using a recipe she found on the BBC good food website

Alice’s famous homemade granola recipe*

250ml runny honey

5 tbs coconut oil

50g pumpkin seeds

50g flax seeds

200g almonds, roughly chopped

500g rolled oats

200g dried apricots, chopped

Serve with milk or yoghurt!

Method: Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and line two baking trays with greaseproof paper.

Melt the honey and the coconut oil in a pan until runny, add everything but the dried apricots to a large bowl, pour over the honey mix and stir together until everything is well coated.

Spread evenly across the baking trays and bake for 10 – 15 mins, until toasted and golden.

Stir through the chopped apricots and allow to cool. The granola will keep for up to a month in an air tight container.

*Alice later confessed that her PT recommended the recipe
