Just because we love our healthy lifestyles doesn't mean we don't love dessert. A healthy lifestyle is a balanced lifestyle, and on the other side of all those protein shakes and kale salads and salmon steaks with sweet potato mash is a world of sweet treats that can give you a toothache just by thinking of them. The thing is, if part of your healthy lifestyle involves shaping up, the split of the balance is not going to be 50/50. It's going to be closer to 80/20, or 90/10. You're simply not going to be able to eat whatever you want, even half of the time, but the cravings for those delectable goodies are going to come, and you're not always going to get to indulge them.


Fear not! Save your salivary glands from working overtime and try out these delish dessert smoothies. They're way healthier than the actual dessert counterpart, and we think just as satisfying.


Chocolate Cake Smoothie

1 serving

  • 1 cup almond or dairy milk
  • 1/3 cups oats
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp carob powder/flour (see note below)
  • 1 tbsp nut butter (any butter works, but we love cashew)
  • 1 tbsp chocolate chips (the darker, the healthier)
  • 2 ice cubes

Directions:

  1. Combine the oats and milk in a small bowl and let soak an hour. This will help make the oats smoother, and prevent your smoothie from becoming gritty.
  1. Once soaking is complete, combine the oats with all the other ingredients except the chocolate chips  — and blend until smooth. Add the chocolate chips and blend on low for 30 seconds. This will add a little texture to your treat!

Peach Cobbler Smoothie

1 serving

  • 1 cup frozen peach slices
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 3 tbsp crunchy vanilla cereal (Nature’s Path is a good option)

Directions:

Put all ingredients except the cereal into blender, mix on high. Pour into a glass, top with cereal, then enjoy!

  • ¼ cup light cream cheese

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
