Power Shake

October 25, 2011 § 1 Comment

Since my life has recently become crazy busy, I have found it hard to make time for nutritious meals (also, all the Halloween candy around my house is killing me). As someone who use to pack a lunch and many snacks everyday I am quickly coming to realize that when I do have time for myself I need to make smart choices, or should I say FAST choices. This Peanut Butter Espresso Shake meets all the necessary requirements to make me happy and not kill my diet. Peanut butter, check; Chocolate, check; and Espresso, check. Dump everything in the blender and you’ve got a power protein shake to carry you through the day. This shake is great for breakfast, lunch and even dinner when in a pinch.

Peanut Butter Espresso Shake-recipe adapted from Nescafe Dolce Gusto

Ingredients: 1 frozen banana, 1 Tbsp creamy peanut butter, 1 cup of milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 1 Tbsp cocoa powder, 1-2 shots of espresso (optional) and ice crubes.

Simply add all ingredients to your blend and mix. Simple and tasty; how easy is that?


Veggies with a Twist

The other day I came across this simple recipe for Sweet Potato Crisps over at Young Married Chic. I love sweet potato chips and I had no idea they would be so easy to make. I used two medium sweet potatoes and the slicing attachment on my food processor to slice the potatoes nice and thin. I guarantee that any picky eater in your family will love these chips and they won’t even realize they are eating a veggie. Make these for a nice healthy snack to munch on whenever you have a need for something savory.
