Hey guys! I just got in from having dinner with my mom and sister at our favorite hibachi style restaurant. My belly is fully and my eyelids are heavy, but I thought I’d pop in real quick and say hi!
Plus, I just HAD to share with you guys the stroke of genius I had while making breakfast the other day…ok, well I’m sure I’m not the FIRST person to think of it, but hey, when you combine two of your favorite things for breakfast and it ends up tasting like a decadent dessert (that’s also healthy), I think it deserves a little morning dose of narcissism. 😉
It all started with a craving for yogurt…but not just any yogurt…
Stonyfield’s French Vanilla low fat yogurt!
(The last of the stash from the “milk and yogurt” run)
The sugar content is a bit high on these, especially being that it’s just vanilla flavored (21g) but lately I’ve had an out-of-this-world raving sweet tooth, so I haven’t even batted an eye…I mean c’mon, there are worse things I could be doing a face plant into, right?
So anyway, it started with a craving for yogurt…but then my ADD self got to thinking that maybe I wanted a protein smoothie…and then I spotted some preeeeeety ripe bananas…
Oh, I crack myself up!
Behold the wonderment that was my bowl of
True story…I went to TJ Maxx looking for a good “banana bowl”
Yep, some dreams DO come true! 😉
1 cup French vanilla yogurt plus one scoop vanilla whey protein powder
Pure, decadent, make-you-forget-what-you-were-saying deliciousness!
Wait…where was I?
Oh yeah, you know what you do when you find yourself on the cusp of the most brilliant “dessert meets breakfast” moments?
You raid your pantry for a bazillion toppings to take it over the top of course!
Go big or go home!
Ahhh, if only I had had some whipped topping…
Oh the troubled life I lead…
And you know what? Sometimes such deliciousness was meant to be shared…
I think I got Tiger’s seal of approval on this one!
I’m not sure why it took me so long to combine yogurt and protein powder, but now I’m super excited to try out more combinations with different flavors of protein powder. I figure I’ll stay with the basic vanilla or maybe a plain flavor for the yogurt so it keeps it’s richness, but how good would this be with chocolate protein powder? Or peanut flour!?
What yogurt/protein powder combo would you try?
What would you top your protein sundae with?
Well, I’m off to bed! Gotta get up early for a run…I missed my workout this morning because the ever-so-soft cotton containment beneath my head just wouldn’t allow me to budge…even when my alarm went off for the FIFTH time! Let’s hope I can defeat the little cushy devil tomorrow! I don’t know…
It’s so FLUFFaaaaaaay!
