Healthy Recipes To Go Along With My #30dayworkoutchallenge
SKINNY PINEAPPLE SMOOTHIE
A sweet and tangy pineapple smoothie this is secretly healthy! No added sugar AND there is a dairy-free option!
Recipe type: Snack/Dessert
1 cup frozen pineapple
½ medium banana
½ cup crushed ice
½ cup vanilla yogurt (or greek vanilla yogurt)
1½ cups fat free milk OR coconut milk
Add pineapple, banana, yogurt and ice to blender. Add 1 cup of the milk. Pulse until mixture is smooth. Add more milk about ¼ cup at a time until desired consistency is reached (I wanted to be able to slurp mine with a straw and it ended up being about 1½ cups of milk). Pour into a glass and drink up!
***DAIRY FREE OPTION: use coconut milk and leave out the yogurt.
THAI SALMON TACOS
Incredibly flavorful sweet and spicy Thai salmon tacos! A quick and healthy 30 minute dinner that will delight salmon lovers!
Recipe type: Main Dish
1 to 1½ pounds salmon (or 4 medium/6-ounce salmon fillets)
1 cup sweet Thai chili sauce (you can find this in the Asian section at most grocery stores)
⅓ cup soy sauce
3 teaspoons minced garlic
¼ cup cilantro leaves, finely chopped
optional: ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
2 cups thinly sliced cabbage or cole slaw (without dressing)
1 mango, thinly sliced
8 taco-sized soft tortillas
Combine sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, garlic, cilantro, and (optional) ginger in a bowl and whisk til smooth and well mixed. Reserve half of the sauce and set it aside.
Add salmon fillets to the bowl with ½ of the sauce and toss to coat well. (If desired, you may marinate this for 30 minutes - overnight, but marinating is not necessary)
Cook the salmon either on a nonstick skillet for 4-6 minutes on each side, or in the oven turned to broil for the same amount of time. Cook until fillets are pink and easily flake with a fork.
Assemble tacos with cabbage (or cole slaw), mango slices, salmon, and top with remaining reserved sauce and drizzle with fresh lime juice. Serve immediately
