Heyy, so I had this delicious after school snack today. I was craving something like a smoothie or some sort of drink since I came home very thirsty! This definitely hit the spot haha. This recipe is not mine but I was thinking of making something similar for a while so I thought why not? It’s very low-carb and low-fat if that’s what you are going for and its super delicious. Try it out! Take me to the recipe!
Woah, that title is a mouthful! So, I’ve got another great recipe for you all. This one contains a special “surprise”… Actually it’s not much of a surprise but I added spinach to this pudding! It’s my new favourite thing to do because you get all the goodness of greens but without the taste. This is perfect to use up all that spinach that you just can’t bring yourself to eat! Don’t like spinach? No worries, you will like this pudding! It is creamy and delicious, it feels like you are eating dessert for breakfast. Topped with a few crushed pecans and mini dark chocolate chips, this is absolutely decadent.
1/2 cup almond milk
1 scoop vanilla protein powder( I used designer whey french vanilla)
1/2 tbsp natural almond butter
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1/4 cup quick oats
1 tsp flax seed
1/4 tsp xanthan gum (could possibly sub flax seeds)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 handful of spinach
2 drops stevia (or honey/agave/maple syrup/splenda)
8-9 ice cubes
Directions: Place all ingredients in a blender(start with ice) and blend until smooth and creamy. Add a little extra xanthan gum if necessary or more/less ice and almond milk depending on how thick you want your pudding! Top with pecans/mini chocolate chips or sugar-free chocolate syrup( recipe coming soon to the site!).

I also made these delicious skinny chocolate protein pancakes with my own sugar-free chocolate syrup, peanut butter and bananas for breakfast the other day. They were so good! (Recipe from dashingdish.com)
I guess I am in a tropical mood lately because here is another recipe that brings me back to my vacation every time I take a sip! It’s absolutely amazing. Possibly my favourite new protein shake! This is soo rich and creamy, if I could I would drink at least 2-3 cups of this stuff haha. It’s that good! Here’s how you can make it too! Take me to the recipe!
Good Morning! Happy Saturday everyone 🙂 I hope you are all still eating clean as always. I have a new recipe for you guys if you are in that awful breakfast rut I know we all get in. I’ve been there. Breakfast has got to be the hardest meal to figure out what to eat. For me, I just have to have something sweet or carby for breakfast, I like eggs but personally I am not the biggest fan of them. That’s why smoothies are my go to breakfast! There are so many new and delicious combinations of fruit, it’s hard to get tired of them. Only problem is..it’s cold outside and I am drinking an ice cold smoothie…not the best combo. But to me it’s worth it. I will just huddle up near my fire place with a ton of blankets covering me. That’s how I spend my every morning haha.
Back to the smoothie, the mango and strawberries together make this so sweet tangy and delicious. It almost reminds be of a creamy fruit dessert. Try it out and let me know what you think!
-5-6 small ice cubes
-5-6 large sliced and frozen strawberries
-1/3-1/2 cup frozen mango slices
-1/2 tbsp flax seed (optional, helps to thicken shake and add healthy fats!)
-1 tbsp plain 0% greek yogurt
-3/4-1 scoop natural vanilla protein powder (I use the PVL brand)
-1/2-1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk depending on the consistency you want your shake to be (add slowly until you like it)
-Optional: Honey for added sweetness(I didn’t add any since I found it to be already sweet enough with the fruit and protein powder).
Directions: Place ingredients in the blender in the order listed to avoid protein powder sticking to the bottom of the blender. Blend on high until smooth, pour in a large cup and garnish with a fresh strawberry..enjoy!
I hope you all love smoothies as much as I do because this one is a keeper! I previously made a blueberry almond smoothie with just blueberries and it was okay but with the addition of banana this shake was amazing! It requires no additional sweeteners since it is already very sweet on it’s own. It’s also great for a quick breakfast if you are in a hurry! Here’s what you’ll need: Take me to the recipe!
Breakfast today..the usual bowl of pudding consisting of about 3/4 of a banana, 1/2 scoop vanilla trutein whey, 1 tbsp cocoa powder, 1/2 tsp fat-free pudding mix, 1/4 tsp xanthan gum, 4 small ice cubes, 2 tbsp greek yogurt(plus a little for topping), 1 tbsp cottage cheese, 3/4 tbsp peanut butter about 1/4-1/3 cup almond milk and cocoa nibs, carob chips and a pinch of cinnamon for topping.
