I am 38 and have been investing in this for 4 years. Here is what I invested in:

Blended Fund Investments The Blackrock LifePath Portfolios LIFEPATH 2050 50% (not a mutual fund)

Stock Investments Specialty FID REAL ESTATE 50% (mostly common stock)

I don't have any specific recommendation, but, that seems like a very high allocation to real estate. You indicate that the LifePath is not a mutual fund, but, it sure sounds like one.

I assume it contains investments in both stock and bonds, domestic and international, large cap and small cap and it otherwise well diversified. That seems like a reasonable choice in a tax advantaged account.
