More Recipes!! Plus other stuff :-)

Last night I made the yummiest protein ice cream! Yes, I just might be addicted to protein ice cream, LOL! Here's what I made...

Super-Chocolaty Protein Ice Cream
makes 2 servings, or 1 very large, very tasty serving :-)

  • 3 scoops (1.5 servings) Champion Nutrition Pro-Score 100 Chocolate protein powder (roughly half a cup of powder)
  • 1/2 cup 0% Chobani Greek Yogurt, plain
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tsp almond butter

Blend well (I used a Magic Bullet), then pour into ice cream maker. Let it run about 20 minutes, then serve! I added sliced banana and sugar-free caramel syrup. You could add some instant coffee crystals to your mix for a mocha flavor, too!
Nutrition:  (just the ice cream) per serving: 183 calories; 29 g protein, 6g carbs, 5g fat, 2g fiber, 2g sugar, 259 mg sodium.

No gym this morning, instead I have Tab's killer Muscle Class this evening :-)  I'm still sore from Total Body Conditioning on Saturday! LOL! Food today...
Breakfast - Oatmeal & grapefruit
Snack 1 - Greek Yogurt (plain 0% Chobani) with pumpkin and granola
Lunch - 4 oz grilled chicken breast, half cup brown rice, 1.5 cup steamed zucchini
Snack 2 - Chicken muffins & pear-apple
Post Workout - Pumpkin Protein Muffin

Dinner is TBD as I'll be heading from the gym to the bowling alley - might run home during the day to grab some more chicken muffins and slice up a red pepper - those make great meals on the go :-)

I am loving my oatmeal these days! Pumpkin pie, woohoo! 
Here's my recipe:
Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup dry quick oats
  • 1 scoop/serving (20g of protein) vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin (not pie mix)
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 Tbsp NuttZo (or almond butter)
  • water to mix

Mix everything but the NuttZo/almond butter, microwave 1 minute, stir in nut butter and enjoy! Woot! 

I begged my daughter for permission to blog this and got a resounding "YES!", lol!  So here's her news (she'll be 16 in Dec.)...
Homecoming is Saturday, and she's all ready to go... has dress, shoes, jewelry, etc, got her nails done yesterday, lol. She was planning to go with a bunch of friends, then this morning at school....she got this...
I mean c'mon, how sweet is that? :-)

  2. I'm a little behind on my blog reading, so sorry I am just getting around to commenting. How exciting for your daughter (I think I can feel the butterflies in her tummy from here!). And the Mother of that young man needs to be handed a trophy. She taught him well!

  3. That is so sweet. My daughter is almost the same age. Sounds like she has a very sweet boy there.
