Mixed Berry Smoothie Bowl {High Protein}

 

This is literally my second smoothie bowl ever! I know, I’m so late to the party and really I have no excuse because these bowls are amazing!


 

 

Last week I was at the mall and decided to try my very first smoothie bowl. I went simple and ordered a acai bowl complete with bananas, strawberries and granola on top. And just like that, my new breakfast obsession was born. Smoothie bowls from a trendy juice joint can get expensive so today I made my own bowl using frozen berries, almond milk, protein powder and then topped it with granola, fresh berries and chia seeds!

 

 

I used PEScience Gourmet Vanilla because it tastes like ice cream! You can get it for 30% OFF by using code PBCHOCO on their website www.pescience.com

Healthy Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

Happy Saturday Night! I plan on spending mine in front of the television with a pumpkin pie milkshake in hand while I binge watch crime investigation shows. Ahh… the perfect Saturday night!

This unbelievably low calorie milkshake was made using Arctic Zero frozen dessert but you can replace it with any low calorie ice cream that you prefer. I also recommend Halo Top if you don’t mind dairy.

Blackberry Lime Passion Tea with Chia

I have recently discovered how delicious chia is in a beverage. I’ve always just sprinkled it over some oats, made some chia jam or pudding. Watch out chia pudding, there’s a new chia craze in town, chia tea!

I’m on my ninth year working for Starbucks (#tobeapartner) so you can only imagine how much Teavana Tea I have collected over the years–like loads of it. I decided to start incorporating it into some of my recipes to ya know, try and clean out my kitchen cabinets a bit.

Last week I made an incredible Orange Green Tea Lemonade with Chia for another company and it was so tasty I started dreaming up other flavor combinations. I decided to combine my favorite fruits with my favorite Starbucks Tea, thus giving me the most delicious (and healthiest) tea I have ever had to drink…IN MY LIFE!

Vanilla Strawberry Protein Pudding Pops

If you are looking for a quick and simple popsicle recipe, then you are going love these super simple instant pudding popsicles. When it comes to my diet, I try and stick to eating mainly whole foods and all natural ingredients but every once in a while I like to indulge (without actually indulging in calories) in the artificially flavored stuff. Life is short and having a instant pudding on occasion is not going to kill you–or make you fat.
