If your like me as a busy wife and mom I love finding simple recipes to add to my healthy eating collection. My friend Stefanie is gifted and creative in the kitchen. I love when she comes up with simple recipes that are delicious and nutritious.
This is a simple way to get your protein in addition to some fruit and raw honey for a pick me up. Stef says freezing your berries is the key! So whether you buy the berries frozen or freeze them yourself(this is what I do) be sure not to skip this step!
Stefs protein of choice is Arbonne and trust me it is awesome! . You really should do your research and find a good quality protein. I prefer almond butter, but a natural organic peanut butter will be great as well!
Delicious and Nutritious Protein Powder
1 scoop of your favorite protein powder 2 tsp nut butter of choice 1 cup mixed frozen berries drizzle raw honey and a dusting of cinnamon
In a small container heat about 1/4 cup of water set aside Mix 1 scoop Protein powder with just enough water to create pudding consistency then add Nut Butter Next add Frozen berries, trust me.. you want them frozen it amazing! drizzle honey and Cinnamon and…. Whala Yummy!

If your like most women there are just times where you feel like you have to have something sweet, right? Problem is we are not always prepared for that moment and may grab something without thinking to satisfy that sweet tooth.
A good rule of thumb is to STOP and ask yourself, why do I want this? Is this taking me closer to my goals or further away? This works well for me unless I have allowed myself to get too hungry(BIG NO NO) and then mindless eating wins! UGH!
Or maybe its that time of the month and you feel like you could eat everything in sight and just might! This is when we need to be REAL, ladies and just find HEALTHY ways to satisfy that sweet tooth. I promised some clients that I would share this particular recipe.
I usually find recipes from my favorite bloggers. I like to experiment with different ingredients until I find what I like! The Coconut Mama has a GREAT variety of simple healthy dessert recipes.
This recipe has been made over many times. I have found this one to be a perfect blend of Protein, fiber, and just enough sweetness!
Protein Energy Balls
3/4 cup oat flour (I grind this myself from old fashioned oats)
2 tablespoons of flaxseeds (I grind these myself also)
1/3 cup of raw local honey
1 tablespoon water
2 scoops of Fit 3 ACTIVE protein powder (If you are interested in more information after clicking on the link shoot me an email to order! .
1/2 cup of natural organic peanut butter
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until blended. It will be thick and clumpy, this is normal. Then cover and put mix in fridge for 30 minutes. Roll into balls and leave in fridge. The protein and fiber will leave you feeling full and satisfy your sweet tooth. Leave a comment and share if you enjoyed this post and recipe!
