A Berry Yummy Parfait

19 Apr

This reminds me of the parfaits at Chickfila which might be why I love it so much:) It’s delicious and has way less calories, fat & sugar than Chickfila’s version!

Ingredients:

4oz Plain Greek Yogurt
1 Tbsp Vanilla Whey Protein
20 Almonds
1/3 Cup Berries of choice (I chose Strawberries!)

Directions:

Measure out 4oz of yogurt in a bowl. Then add the protein powder and mix until it is blended together evenly. Next add your berries. If you choose strawberries, I like to cut them into smaller pieces so that I get a little bit in each bite:) Next, place almonds in a baggie and crush. I actually use a hammer (because it’s fun) However you can use what ever method you prefer. Be careful not to crush into a powder (although my husband did that and it still taste good) I just think it’s a little better with a crunch:) Also, If you prefer the Chickfila parfait with cookies instead of granola try using Cocoa Almonds! They are absolutely delicious and you will hardly tell a difference!!

Craving Chicken Salad but not wanting all the calories & fat?! Here is an easy solution that is clean and EASY (One of my favorite words if you haven’t noticed!) It takes about 5 minutes and is made of only 4 ingredients. Enjoy!

Low-Carb Chocolate Pancakes

28 Jan

I posted a picture of these chocolate pancakes on twitter the other day and I’ve had a lot of people ask for the recipe! Soooooo here it is! 🙂 These are great for a late night snack (because it’s LOW CARB) & also for a quick on-the-go snack. They are also perfect for sweet cravings!! *Sugar Free Syrup makes them even better.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Scoops of Chocolate Protein (I use Myofusion Milk Chocolate because it taste amazing!)
  • 2 Egg whites
  • 1 Whole Egg
  • 1/2 C Almond Milk
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • Butterbuds (optional)

Directions:

Mix powder, eggs, milk & cinnamon in a bowl. You may have to adjust the amount of almond milk based on the texture of the mixture. You want it to be similar to pancake mix with no clumps. Then cook like a pancake. When you take the pancake off the pan sprinkle it with the butterbuds (or even add extra cinnamon) It will melt giving it a really good flavor! I use about 3 tablespoons to make each pancake which makes.
