Hey all! I thought it was about time I posted a new recipe! I can’t even remember the last time I shared one with you guys! But this recipe was worth the wait..This easily just became my new favourite go-to snack. This is absolutely delicious and is wayyy better for you then any regular ice cream! It can actually be eaten as a meal replacement (highly recommend it for breakfast!). It’s perfect for the warm weather coming up. It even looks like spring haha :). So now to the details I know you all want to know.. This little treat packs a good 284 calories, 5g fibre, only 3g fat, 21g yes 21g protein!(no protein powder!), & 41g carbs. You are also getting lots of healthy vitamins & nutrients from the fruit! So now how does that crazy high protein number come in when there is no protein powder you may ask? WELL, I guess you will just have to read more to find out….. Take me to the recipe!
I decided to create this recipe after trying a really good key lime pie yogurt on vacation. You can’t get it where I live so I thought why not attempt to make my own? It turned out really good! I also wanted to create this healthy alternative since I know one of my best friend’s absolute favourite desserts is key lime pie ;). This may not be 100% the same but it definitely tastes pretty dang good for being healthy. Not to mention it’s super high in protein. Don’t believe me? Just give it a whirl.
-1 tbsp low-fat cream cheese
-1/2 cup greek yogurt
-1/4 tsp vanilla extract
-2-3 drops stevia sweetener (or another sweetener to taste, I would guess about 1 tsp of granular sweetener)
-1/2-1 tsp lime juice (depending on how strong you want it)
-1/4 tsp lime zest
-1 tsp honey graham cracker crumbs/crust
Directions: Stir or beat together cream cheese and yogurt until well combined. Mix in the stevia and vanilla then add the lime juice to taste. Top with freshly grated lime zest and graham cracker crumbs. Enjoy!

Hey everyone! I am so happy to share with you this recipe but also if you’ve been to my site before, you may notice I have a new header! Okay, so..not that exciting to all of you but it took a lot of work to create a new one! I felt like my old header was a little out of date since I made it when I first created the website. This new header is much prettier in my opinion, haha and it better reflects me! Anyways, before I get on to the recipe I just have to tell you my reason for not posting yesterday..Well, I was making my after school snack as usual and I poured myself a tall glass of water. If you don’t know, I am probably one of the most clumsy people you will meet. So of course, I spilt my whole glass of water. Now that would have been alright, I mean it’s not hard to clean up water but where of all places did that water land? That’s right, all over my Macbook Pro. As you might picture, I immediately started to freak out and turned the laptop upside down as it dripped out water. I put it on a towel upside down like that with a fan blowing on it for the rest of the day and today I cautiously tried turing it on and I am soooo happy to say it works! (Knock on wood). I guess macs are tougher then you might think! So that is the reason I didn’t post anything that day! Just thought I’d share :). Now finally onto the recipe!! Blueberry Almond high Protein Smoothie! *No there is no protein powder. This drink is perfect as a filling quick breakfast! Take me to the recipe!
I made this snack as we have about a pound of ripe bananas that need using up so instead of another smoothie I decided to chop some banana over plain 0% greek yogurt(mixed with a drop of coconut extract, 1/8 tsp vanilla & a few drops of stevia) topped with cinnamon, pecans & unsweetened shredded coconut..mmmm.
I also had this great snack of tuna mixed with my usual dijon mustard, pepper, yellow mustard, green onion and 1 small dill pickle chopped and then I also ate 1/2 an apple with chopped almonds, a drizzle of sugar-free maple syrup and a few raisins.
This has been my most recent creation and favourite HEALTHY snack ever. I could honestly eat a tub of this stuff daily. Seriously go make this. Now. Take me to the recipe!
Another one of my frozen-fruit concoctions. This one was a nice change from eating my usually raspberry-banana I eat everyday 🙂 All I did was replace the banana with peaches! Take me to the recipe!
Hey everyone! This was breakfast this morning..So delicious, I hope you all try this out. It’s absolutely delicious!
This is a twist on my original: Fat-Free Yogen Fruz Frozen Yogurt recipe that I created with strawberries and blueberries. Take me to the recipe!
If you are like me and absolutely loveeee Yogen Fruz(Frozen yogurt stand) Then you will love this recipe. It tastes exactly like it! (Believe me I would tell you if it didn’t!). You may be a bit weirded out by the ingredients, because..there is actually no yogurt in this recipe! But you don’t need it(I have tried with greek yogurt and it tastes good but not AS GOOD as with cottage cheese!) I known many of you dislike cottage cheese but honestly you cannot taste it at all and it gets blended so creamy, it is just like the block of frozen yogurt they use! Just give it a shot and come back here and tell me you didn’t like it 😉 Take me to the recipe!
