Gluten-Free Vegan Banana Donuts with Dragonfruit Glaze
Soy-Free, Gluten-Free, Nut-Free, No Refined Sugar, Vegan)
1/2 cup gluten-free flour
3/4 tsp baking powder (corn starch-free and aluminum free)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup mashed banana
1 TBSP organic date syrup
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup coconut milk
1. Mash banana and stir all ingredients together.
2. Pour into coconut oil or avocado-oil greased donut pan.
3. Bake 16-20 min or until golden and set. Cool on a wire rack and drizzle with optional glaze.
To make the glaze: Whisk vegan vanilla protein powder with water and dragonfruit powder or melted frozen pitaya until a spreadable texture is reached.
Add plant-colored vegan sprinkled if desired! (And of course, you desire).
Now, while they are baking...You have at least 15 minutes to boost your metabolism and get your muscles toning. Repeat set 4 times.
Move 1: Get into a plank position (either on your forearms as pictured or with straight arms) and lift your right leg up into the air, keeping it straight. Repeat 15 times then switch legs.
Move 2: Stand up and get down on your knees, one leg at a time. Stand back up and repeat 15 times. Bonus: Jump at the top or hold a kettlebell or medium weight (or a toddler!)
Move 3: Get into a hands-and-knees position (knees in line under hips) and lift your right leg. Keeping it straight, lift it up and down THEN out 90 degrees to the side and pull it back in line to the starting position. Repeat set 15 times on each leg.
Move 4: Get into a bridge position (on your back, feet planted on the ground, hips lifted in line with your spine). Raise your right leg until it’s in line with your left thigh. Push your hips up, keeping your right leg lifted then slowly lower your body and leg back to the start position. Do this 15 times then repeat with other leg.
Bonus: Squat with a resistance band above your knees.
Stand farther apart than your hip's width, put your weight into your heels, sit down and back as low as you can without tumbling backwards. Do this 25 to 50 times. Now enjoy that treat, already!
