RECIPES! Peanut Butter Fudge Protein Shake!

image

Who doesn’t love peanut butter fudge? I know I do!  Sometimes the old protein shake can get real old real quick. I’m always searching for new ways to spice up my protein shake so it never becomes just normal.  This post is dedicated to my favorite fudge ever; the great and amazing peanut butter fudge!  The best part about this protein shake, no blender needed. I use my blender bottles.

The blender bottles I use usually have a whisk in the bottom of them, pictured below. This wisk, I have found, is the very best in the de-clumping procedure of protein mixes. Who enjoys clumps of protein in your mouth when you’re drinking it? I sure as heck don’t!

I recently switch protein powders. I never really thought of how much I was paying in retrospect to the flavor of the powder. Until recently, the only protein powder Walmart carried was Six Star Vanilla whey protein.  I live in a small rural town of only 1,700 people. So if Walmart only carried one protein powder at the time that was my only option. I want you to know that the 6 star Vanilla whey protein powder was very drinkable and I have no complaints.  Recently, Walmart started carrying MusclePharm’s vanilla whey and casein protein powder. This was right up my alley seeing I was about to buy casein protein by itself.  I popped for the 5 extra dollars and got the vanilla whey & casein protein powder by MusclePharm.  I am so happy I did! I simply cannot believe the difference in the taste of the vanilla protein powder. I don’t think I’ll be going back to 6 star unless I’m extremely broke!

In this recipe you do not have to use my brands.  I am just showing you what I use.

In your blender bottle put 2 scoops of MusclePharm’s vanilla whey protein (SOLD AT WALMART)
3 Tbs of Plain PB2 (SOLD AT WALMART)

2 Tbs of glutamine powder  (SOLD AT WALMART)

In the past I’ve added chia seeds to this shake.  You never know they are there! Now shake shake shake-shake shake shake, shake your shaker, shake your shaker!  And your booty! 

Enjoy!  This is my morning or evening sweet crave cheat!

PRODUCT REVIEW: Quest Protein Bars “strawberry cheesecake”

image

image

I first came across quest bars on Facebook.  All the fitness groups I am a member of on Facebook as well as on bodyspace has made me read a lot from my fitness family about Quest Bars being awesome.  I usually buy my protein bars at Walmart or Aldi.  My favorite protein bar from Aldi is the peanut & honey covered in yogurt. My daughter and I, our favorite protein bar from Walmart is cookie dough.  

In my small hometown with a population of only 1700 people, Walmart & Aldi is about all we have here. When we go over to Jonesboro, Arkansas we like to visit the Kroger. Kroger tends to carry a lot of foodie items that I really truly enjoy. While surfing the protein bar isle, I was enthralled at how many choices I had in front of me.  I have not only the options I had at Walmart, but now I have the option of trying a Quest Bar finally!  I chose Quest Bars strawberry cheesecake flavored protein bar. The bar was a bit more pricey than what I’m used to, but it was worth a try based on the reviews I’ve heard.

I noticed the nutritional values on the back of the packaging for the bar. Look above at the picture it pretty much explains for itself! From what I’ve experienced so far this is the truly only low carb are on the market with just two grams of active carbs. Those carbs are only from nutts and not sugars.  Protein in the whole bar is 20 grams!  I was very impressed by what I saw on the nutritional values.

LIKE ALWAYS WHAT YOU WANT TO REALLY KNOW! DID I LIKE THE FLAVOR?!

A protein bar will be a protein bar. Anyone who has ate a protein bar will know that it can be kind of gritty.  Just like all protein bars this bar is no different in that aspect. I was impressed by the natural strawberries that are actually within the bar itself.  Below are pictures of the bar once I opened it.

You can somewhat see the little flakes of dehydrated strawberries in the picture.  I was impressed at the fact that the cheesecake flavoring did not overpower the strawberry taste.   This was my first flavor of trying, but I did enjoy the strawberry cheesecake.

Was the bar worth the price? I don’t think so. I don’t think I’ll be buying another strawberry cheesecake flavor, but I will be trying some of the other flavors and I will be keeping you posted.

Please note this will be a protein bar I will be using during prepping weeks.

Until then, happy hunting and keep pushing strong.

PRODUCT REVIEW: Halo Top Ice Cream “Birthday Cake”

image

I first found this product on Facebook when I liked their page.  Once impressed by visiting their website online I decided to locate the nearest seller of this miracle ice cream.  Bingo! Kroger in Jonesboro, AR carried this treasure!

I want to say as a lobbyist for buying products manufactured in the USA, I approve this product in this aspect of the subject.  It is manufactured in a creamery located in California.  Shown in the picture below.

While we are looking at this picture I want you to note a few nutritional values here.  These are a few things that turn me onto this ice cream.  The serving size is half a cup. The servings in 1 pint is 4.  The calories in only a half cup is 70 cals. If you ate the whole pint on a cheat meal you come out with only 280 calories! Which could make for a better option on depressed days or ice cream craving cheats.  I also want to point out the protein content in this ice cream.  In a half cup you will have 6 grams of protein.  If you ate the whole pint you would have 24 grams of protein! Carbs are 15g a serving, please note that for my prepping fans!

image

This ice cream freezes hard due to the fact they do not use artifical softeners in this product.  I let mine sit out a bit to make it softer. It’s an all natural ice cream made with all natural ingredients, no artificial sweeteners, vegan friendly, no GMOs, & gluten free.

image

The last point I want to make is what we all wonder……  is the flavor good?

YES IT IS! This flavor was out of this world!  It even has hidden sprinkles that we all know we enjoying finding hidden within the ice cream!  It’s like finding the prize in the cereal box.  It tasted like Baskin Robbins ice cream. I was simply blown away!

This is my first time buying this product & I WILL BE BUYING AGAIN.

This roduct is approved by me!
