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?

Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie Recipe

 

This fine Monday, I’ve got a fabulous recipe and review for you. I was very blessed to receive a package of Vega One (All-In-One) Protein Powder from the wonderful people at Vega.

Now, I’m really picky about my protein powder…which, I assume most of you are. My protein powder needs to be:

  • Nutritious
  • Tasteful
  • Easy to use in all my recipes
  • And most importantly…made with EXCELLENT ingredients.

I’m very happy to say, that Vega HIT all of those key points. This health nut is quite pleased.

Here’s some delicious information about Vega One:

  • It has 50% of your daily intake of vitamins & minerals!
  • A whopping 15g of Protein
  • 6g Fiber
  • 1.5g omega-3…what!? Awesome
  • Antioxidants
  • Probiotics (which is so, so important! Especially for those who don’t take probiotics in their daily habits)
  • AND you get your GREENS! Yay

I think my favorite part of Vega All-In-One shake is that I can get all of that nutrition without putting so much effort. This is probably one of the best things, in my opinion, for those who are busy and on-the-go. We all forget to take the time to get our vitamins in or planning our meals to make sure we get out all of our greens and antioxidants. Vega makes it a little easier for us. Thank you, Vega!

As soon as I got the protein, I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to make. I’ve been in the mood for chocolate and mint lately, so why not make an extra creamy Mint Chocolate Chip smoothie!? It was the best idea ever. It was so good and there are seriously no words to describe it.

Mint Choc. Chip Smoothie

I added a little water after I got everything going in the blender since the cashews will make it extra creamy and thick.

If you happen to serve it to others or you just want to take a pretty picture, you can garnish it with more mint leaves and chopped dark chocolate…mmmm, yum!

I think I will be making this A LOT this summer. A LOT.

Questions:

  • What’s your favorite protein powder?
  • Do you think you’ll make this smoothie?

Friday Faves 4/19

Ahhhhh, adorable! I couldn’t help it.

Okay so this morning I forgot to take a picture of breakfast.

It was eggs and waffles. Very uncreative. I need more easy clean breakfast food ideas. Throw ‘em at me if you got any! **

So here’s what my breakfast would have looked like if I would have taken a picture today. Sorry for the recycled photo, guys.

I feel like somebody would say…

Lol…

Anyway, so a few of my faves I’ve been loving this week.

I took a trip to Target the other day over the weekend and found some new things I’m kinda in love with.

Essie nail polish.

Anything Peplum…sorry this picture doesn’t do the shirt justice. Its super cute. AT TARGET, my fashion friends! I have another shirt, that’s super cute, that I will share with you on Sunday! But Peplum is where its at, kids.

I actually wore this shirt to an interview that I had Tuesday.

I love Botanics products and found this cleanser. A few of the reviews were really good, so I thought, why not try it. I love the way it makes my face feel. I still need to keep using it though because I doubt just using it 5 times, isn’t going to be enough. I’ll let you know how it works 2 weeks from now.

**I need some new food products to try…anyone got any ideas?
