Green Chocolate?

I know it looks and sounds awful but it tastes great! In a hurry today to get to the Farmer’s Market so I concocted this little number in my trusty Ninja blender. I probably should have blended it up a little longer…oh well!

What does it taste like you ask? It actually tastes delicious like a chocolate banana milkshake that’s actually good for you 🙂

Off to the Farmer’s Market to pick up some more healthy greens. Have a great day everyone!

PB2 and Banana Power Oatmeal

Mmmmmm….Peanut Butter!

Who loves peanut butter (me pointing at myself) this girl! The only problem is that I have absolutely no self-control around an open jar of it and can easily mow through half of it in 2 seconds flat. OK, I’m exaggerating but only a little.

So, I cannot tell you how happy I was when I discovered PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter. With only 45 calories, 1.5g of fat and 5g of carbs in 2 Tablespoons, it was as if I’d found the holy grail! Now whenever I need a PB fix I mix together some PB2 powder and water so I can indulge without overindulging.

Anyway, this morning after my workout I realized I had a couple of bananas that were going to spoil if I didn’t use them soon so here’s what I came up with:

Since this is generally my post-workout meal, I cook 1/2 c oatmeal in the microwave for about 2 minutes. Next, I add in the protein and peanut butter powder with a splash of flax milk. Continue adding in the flax milk until it’s the consistency you like and mix in a packet of stevia (optional). Top off with a sliced banana and you’re ready to start the day.
