home made healthy clean desert. i made some tonight. its based on the concept of the peanut butter cup.
basically i take 2 scoops chocolate whey powder, bout 4 teaspoons splenda or whatever sweetner u have. teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder and about a cup of water. stick it in a blender or if u dont have one, just stick it in you shaker and shake it up till its blended. then i pour the protein shake mixture into small desert bowls. my recipe made 5 bowls. then i added a tsp of peanut butter into each bowl. it drops in and sinks into it. then you stick it in the fridge and let it freeze for an hour or so till its frozen. then u take it out and eat it. its like a seriously delicious healthy frozen peanut butter cup. so i will have one now for desert and the rest is in the fridge for the next few days.
next time i make it im gonna make it with casein powder as i tend to eat them as my last meal of the day at night… so i might as well make it count.
but yeah good stuff, healthy and feeds the sweet tooth craving. taste like choc ice cream with pb. and everyone knows the marriage between choc and pb is a match made in heaven.
this is one of my favourite and easy to make healthy deserts. takes 5 mins. 1 week ago
ice green tea.
i may have posted this somewhere else. but thought i should put it here on this goal.
i make and drink this every day.
basically every night i boil 500mls of water in the kettle. pour it in a measuring jug, steep a green teabag in the water for a few minutes, i also add some matcha green tea powder for extra green tea goodness. steep and swirl it so all the good stuff goes in. let that cool in the jug for an hour or so. once its cooled down, i pour it in my water bottle and stick it in my fridge overnight. the next day i take it out the fridge and i take it to work to drink or i use it as my “water” to drink during my work out. this way i get a minimum of 2 cups of green tea a day, and it goes down really easy as a cold refreshing drink esp during a work out. on my rest days i just drink it normally with a meal, i even have it with my lunch at college. it looks distgusting, like spirulina etc but its all good for you, and you get used to the taste.
i also tend to make a cup of hot green tea with the same teabag i used for my iced green tea, the same night before i throw it away.
i love green tea, its an obsession, teabags, tablets, powders, and its helping with weightloss. 2 months ago
of the ways i love to drink my water at work and sometimes at home is… to pour a tall glass of water with ice, and then i take some slices of lemon and add it to it. and then i squeeze some more lemon slices into the water so that the lemon juice goes in, and then i also add fresh mint leaves to the water. and it makes a refreshing strong minty lemon drink. i get lots of comments on it, cos everyone sees my water glass with tons of lemon and mint in it. but i like it, and it helps when im thirsty ina busy restaurant. and i jsut top it up when i finish drinking it. 2 months ago
Banana pancakes today for breakfast! Mmmm happy pancake day y’all! :) 3 months ago
is my homemade banana popsicles. before and after chocolate :) 3 months ago
the recipe for my banana popsicles that i love so much AKA chocolate banana and peanut butter popsicles!
this is a healthy treat and much better to have instead of icecream or normal popsicles. in my opinion tastes just as good if not better. the banana once frozen gives the consistence/impression as if it were real ice cream. really good treat if u have a sweet tooth but dont want to be naughty!
this makes 4 portions.
tsp coconut oil
3/4 blocks dark chocolate (also really good with mint dark chocolate)
basically u cut the bananas in half. then slice the halves vertically. then you spread some peanut butter on one of the banana slices. insert a skewer on the peanut butter spread. put the other banana slice on top. then secure them together. do that 3 more times so that you have 4 banana peanut butter skewers. i then wrap mine individually in some grease proof paper and put them in the freezer to freeze until firm.
once your popsicals are all the way frozen. take your dark chocolate and melt it with the coconut oil. i like to put it in a mug and put it in the microwave on a very low heat so that it doesnt burn. it needs to jsut melt. once that has melted, i take the banana popsicals out the freezer and hold them by the skewer and dip them into the melted chocolate in the cup. and keep dipping until the whole banana is covered. you will find that the chocolate hardens and dries within 3/4 seconds, due to the fact of the hot sauce on frozen banana. once these are done, u can enjoy immidately or pop back in the freezer, and have them when ever you feel like a “ice cream treat”. i actually still ahve one of these left in the freezer so i will prob have it now :)
i usually will have one after supper as desert :) seriously my favourite healthy desert. this is great for kids too.
the above picture is taken from the internet where i found the original recipe. i will post my pics of my ones in the next 2 entries :) 3 months ago
made a delicious healthy chilli dish for supper tonight! a healthier take on traditional chilli con carne.
about a tblsp coconut oil
2 cans chopped tommatos
2 cans kidney beans
500g cubed chicken peices (minced in food processor)
chilli pepper (salt & pepper and any other spices herbs u want to add – i added some thyme and a bit of parsely)
traditional chilli con carne is usually served with beef mince i believe and rice… however i opted for no rice, and used chicken which i minced instead of beef mince. i served this with a cup of mixed veg instead of rice.
anyway basically saute the chopped onion in coconut oil in a pan (i used a wok). then once thats nearly done add the garlic… then add the chicken mince and cook till the chicken is no longer pink. then add the chopped tommatoes and the kidney beans. and finally all the spices to taste. once all mixed nicely… set to a meduim heat, cover and cook for 30mins.
serve with rice or mixed veg or salad. or whatever u like. this made a big portion. it will probably last me for the next 3 days as i am the only one who is eating it. or 4 servings.
came out really nice, tasty and spicy. this is gonna be a staple for me. and a really healthy dish!
