This post includes a recipe for a carrot cake protein smoothie!
I’m off to the gym so I am keeping this brief–but this smoothie was so good that I have to share with you! This was a spontaneous creation (& Holy freaking cow–it’s better than the real thing).
I like to wing it in the kitchen (no measuring!) and this smoothie was done that way…
Recipe: Carrot Cake Protein Smoothie
All raw & organic:
-Soaked chia seeds
-Vanilla protein (I used Garden of Life’s Grain Free Vanilla)
-A handful of baby carrots
-Several cubes of ice.
Blend and boom! A healthy, rich, satisfying treat.
After a run last night I was craving something filling, but didn’t want to stray from clean eating. So, I created this treat off the top of my head! The picture might not do the recipe justice.
This warm bowl of
Organic Coconut “Oatmeal”
is delicious and decadent! As you might have guessed, there is no actual oatmeal in this bowl. Instead, there are several delicious substitutes. I will break down the process of making this to make it simple and understandable (these measurements are not exact because I eye-balled them until the concoction was the desired texture):
Start with a bowl
Put about half a cup of almond milk into the bottom of the bowl
Add a few tablespoons of PB2 (powdered peanut butter–85% less calories than peanut butter)
Add a few tablespoons of coconut flour
Add a sprinkling of both chia and flax seeds
Add a half scoop of Jay Robb’s protein
Add half a banana (sliced up)
Add 2 drops of stevia
Mix all of these ingredients together and add more almond milk or more coconut flour as needed (the consistency should be like pancake batter)
Next, since I’m not a fan of microwaving foods, I put this mixture in a skillet that has coconut oil in it (on medium heat).
I simply heat the mixture through until it is similar to warm oatmeal (stir it around often) and then put the cooked mixture in a bowl and enjoy with a spoon! Add cinnamon on top for extra richness and flavor.
