Strawberry Banana Protein Ice-cream, Magic Bullet Review, & Video

Hey guys, how was your weekend? I hope it was good!

Yesterday, I was pretty much alone all day, so I was busy making recipes, videos, and writing posts for the week. Do you feel like you get a lot done when everyone stays away from you all day? Moving on, I wanted to do something special for my review of the Magic Bullet, so I decided to make a quick video on the spotlight recipe + what I think of the bullet.

Also, I will post my a sorbet recipe I made that is perfect for summer!

Am I just on a roll of what with all these recipes! Creative ideas are coming my way! Let’s hope it stays this way…

Check out the video here!

Strawberry banana protein icecream

Directions:

  • Blend all ingredients in your Magic Bullet until completely smooth
  • Pour into a container
  • Freeze for 30 minutes
  • Eat in the container or on a cone
  • NOTE: If you eat it on a cone, it tastes better if after you fill your cone with ice-cream, freeze it for about 15 more minutes!

The Magic Bullet is great for making quick smoothies, grinding oats, ice-cream, sorbets, even cupcake batter—> Paleo Cupcakes

You can also use the lower blade to grind your nuts and seeds like I did with my pecan/currant mixture for my Super Food Breakfast Bar

Oh man, fresh made ice-cream in 90 degree humid weather might be the best thing! Can’t beat something cold when it’s boiling hot outside! Anyone with me here?

So, what do you think about this ice-cream recipe? Do you think you will try it?

Let me know if you watched the video!

As I promised in the video, here’s the recipe for the Sorbet! I noticed, that eating something like this, keeps me from craving actual ice-cream that’s filled with sugar and HFCS. If you’re looking for something to fix that sweet tooth late at night, you might as well go out with a nutritious and satisfying dessert, right?

Pale Cupcakes 3

Paleo Cupcakes 2

It’s so simple to make cupcakes using coconut flour because as long as you got a lot of eggs, a natural sweetener, and other simple baking ingredients, you can make these! It’s not hard work, you guys! It’s so darn easy and I hope you guys try these out! My family gobbled them up. I was actually supposed to have 6 cupcakes on the plate but my mother stole one before I could take a picture! Not cool. Don’t mess with a food blogger’s food.

Paleo Cupcakes

I also let you in on my quick and healthy chocolate frosting. I’m not up to date on the Paleo diet…but I know the layout. Not sure if Greek yogurt counts as Paleo, but hey, it’s the healthiest frosting ever so give it a go!

Questions:

  • What’s your favorite cupcake recipe?

  • What kind of recipe should I come up with next? Any ideas?

Cauliflower Crust Pizza Recipe

Good morning and happy Friday!

For today’s Food Friday post, I’m talking pizza.

I posted this on instagram and the blog yesterday from Wednesday’s dinner…

Gluten Free Cauliflower Crust Pizza      Adapted from How Sweet Eats

With Onions, Peppers, Mushrooms and Basil                  Makes 2 Pizzas

Here are my ingredients. Similar to Jessica’s       (Click How Sweet Eats for directions)

  • 2 heads of cauliflower
  • 2 packs of Sargento Mozzarella Shredded Cheese
  • 1 pack of parmesan shredded cheese
  • Can of marinara (check the ingredients and make sure there isn’t any added sugars or HFC in it)
  • Pre diced purple onion
  • Pre sliced mushrooms
  • Pre diced bell pepper trio
  • Basil, Chopped finely (I used basil from my garden)
  • Italian seasoning
  • Red pepper flakes
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder
  • 1-2 tbsp almond flour

– Made one pizza out of one head of cauliflower and another pizza out of the other head of cauliflower. I made identical pizzas though!

– I sautéed the bell pepper, onion, mushrooms and basil and let it cool before adding it to the top of the pizza.

– Head over to Jessica’s recipe for the full directions! You can pretty much do whatever you want to it! Bon Appetite!

Breakfast:

Good ole overnight oats!

But I learned something awesome—- if you slice some banana in with the oats overnight, the oats will taste like banana bread! So good!

I also snuck in a handful of Cascadian Farms Cinnamon Crunch (similar to cinnamon toast crunch!!!! Just not as sugary)

Workout:

Warmed up a mile (kinda fast) and then didn’t feel good afterward at all.

After 30 minutes, I decided to tough it out finish what I started…Chest and Triceps had to be worked!

Then after they felt like jelly, I knew I was through! Got in a good sweat sesh even though my calorie wasn’t high or anything. No problemo

Lunch:

Flat out sandwich with chicken breast, lettuce, and laughing cow cheese wedge, some Crunch Master gluten free crackers, and I had muscadines later!

Had an owl visit us by the kitchen window…he saw me!!!

Dinner:

Black beans, rice, 1/3 of a sweet potato, chicken, broccoli…and yesterday was National Cheese Pizza Day…ha ha! #absaremadeinthekitchen y’all!

Questions:

  • Have you tried Cauliflower Crust yet?
  • Do you push through workouts if you don’t feel good or do you take it as a sign to skip?
  • Favorite cereal?
