What I shoved in my face today!  I LOVE Almond Butter! Especially when used in a shake!

Almond butter is so yummy and good for you!  Who couldn’t eat it right out of the jar…..please! But just to make us feel better let’s make us some ice creamy shake with it!

I am an ice cream eater, shakes and frozen treats are all my fav’s!  There is just something so appealing about hanging out with friends and eating ice cream!  One could seriously pack on the pounds if you aren’t paying attention.  You should make this great treat instead and get your protein while satisfying your sweet tooth! Make sure you have 2 frozen banana’s ahead of time.  When you have banana’s that are over ripened, chop them up and place 2 banana’s per bag iin the freezer for sweet treats!

This recipe serves 2 friends 🙂

2 Frozen banana’s

1/2 cup Natural almond butter

1/2 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk (just to help it blend, if you want thicker ice cream, use less)

1 Scoop Chocolate protein powder

A handfull of almonds (optional, I like crunchies in my ice cream)

Break up the frozen bananas and place around the sides in the blender for easier blending.  Throw the rest of the ingredients into the blender and blend away. I start with only a 1/4 cup of Almond milk and if has a hard time mixing and too thick I add a bit more and scrape everything off of the sides into the mixer, throw in a handfull of almonds and  blend until mixed.  Add a couple of Almonds to the top and you have a very thick tasty shake!

Depending on the thickness, you could scoop it into a glass for a shake, if you want it more ice cream scoopish place into a freezer safe container and put it in the freezer for about an hour.  Either way it is Scrumpch-ilicious!!  And the bonus is your protein is included 🙂

For looks and extra yummy add a couple of almonds to the top.   Depending on how ripe your banana’s were will be the natural sweetener. Perfect example of clean eating and keeping on track to your healthy lifestyle, but still enjoying your snacks.

Clean Eating Pancakes or Crepes? Yummy is What I Call Them!

DSCN9553DSCN9559

Saturday mornings to me mean let’s eat something sweet and yummy!  These clean eating pancakes are great to add anything to.  My favorite way to eat them is to add some sugarfree all natural strawberry spread with whipped cream and roll them up like a crepe.  If I am feeling like a classic pancake, just some naural maple syrup.  Or if you are feeling crazy nutty….spread some almond butter all over when the pancakes are warm and the almond butter melts all over drippy and gooey! So versitile to what you want it to be.

These pictures are making me hungry!!

It’s an incredibly easy and fast recipe that lets you get to the eating and get on with your day and workout!  Packed with protein and fast carbs they give you the energy to get up and after it fast!

Depending on how many you want to make and the size that you make them you will need to double the recipe if you want a plate full at average size shown in the first picture of this scrumchillies post!!

Clean Eating Healthy Pancakes/Crepes- makes 4-5 small pancakes

1 ripened large banana

2 whole eggs

1 teaspoon cinnamon

In a small mixing bowl, take a fork and mash up your peeled, overripened large banana. Add 2 eggs and beat until your mixture is smoothe.  Spray your griddle and pour into circles.  I do them medium size as it makes them easier to flip.  I tried larger ones and it makes it seriously difficult to flip without breaking! And a big spatchula helps too!  when firm and browned on one side, flip and cook the other side.
