WIAW-Coconut Vanilla Almond Butter SmoothiePosted: August 15, 2012
happy WIAW! thank’s again to Jenn for hosting!
side note..I leave for school in 5 DAYS. SAY WHATTT
i should probably start packing?
since I came back from Newport yesterday morning I stopped at my favorite coffee shop Annie D’s to get breakfast and coffee
of course I forgot to snap a picture but I got a delicious ham, egg and cheese on an english muffin..i normally get my beloved carrot raisin muffin but I resisted the temptation
took the Duke mister (which would be my golden retriever in case your confused lol) for another 2.7 mile run around Wellesley College
meet my new obsession.
yes this jar mayyy be $9.99 but it could be the best 10 dollars ever spent..i just can’t get over how good it is!! (my pre-work out fuel this morning was 3 spoonfuls of this..i felt a wee bit nautious but it was worth it)
so instead of just shoveling straight spoonfuls of this..I put it to good use yesterday and came up with a delicious smoothie!
Coconut Vanilla Almond Butter Smoothie
- 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup ice
- 1 tbsp vanilla almond butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp coconut extract (or coconut flour or butter could add in extra coconut flavor!)
- 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 drop stevia (optional for added sweetness)
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Instructions: place all ingredients in a blender and blend!
slurrrrped out of a guinness glass (cause who even likes guinness?! bleh)
topped with some leftover toasted coconut
we had a few people over from our gym for dinner so we had a nice small barbecue!
i made some of my grilled pineapple guac which was a hit!
my trainer Cheryl (who now reads my blog hi Cheryl! ) brought two delicious salads!
a pasta salad with spinach, tomatoes, olives, and thinly sliced squash
and a delicious arugula salad with watermelon and feta!
my mom and I made chicken kebobs with a homemade peach barbecue sauce
I loaded up my plate with a bit of everything
my mom also made really delicious watermelon sangria that i had a glass of
earlier in the day I cut up a bunch of fresh peaches, plums, and strawberries and drizzled them with agave nectar and about a tbsp of granulated sugar
I let the fruit sit covered in the fridge all day and then we served the fruit salad with some frozen yogurt
best summer dessert ever.
Late Night Snack
a couple handfuls of reduced fat white cheddar cheese its which I failed to take a picture of
not healthy whatsoever but i would have to say that cheese its and gold fish are my two “junkie food” obsessions..do NOT put one of those big boxes of goldfish in front of me..it will be bad news bears
this is why I don’t babysit children because i would probably just eat their goldfish all day long
and just another side note..not that i ever remember to snap a picture of everything i eat every day but I did a really bad job of taking a picture of everything I ate yesterday..woopsies..maybe next time!
i hope everyone has a great day!
Question for ya!: What is your favorite “junkie food” snack?
hands down cheese its and goldfish..this is why I try not to ever buy these at schools! but everything is okay in moderation i think!
