Milkshake for Breakfast??

Posted on

Breakfast tasted like dessert this morning.

I woke up, not really craving anything in particular.  I headed over to the fridge and just started pulling things out that looked good, and I ended up making this DELICIOUS treat! Seriously, it tastes like a milk shake!

Almond Cacao Milkshake Smoothie

  • 2/3 frozen banana
  • 1 Tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tsp raw organic cacao
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze
  • 1/4 cup nonfat plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1 packet stevia
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ice cubes to thicken things up

Combine all things in the blender and enjoy!  Seriously… 😉

 

 

 

 

The Bachelorette…Party

Today, I am headed to the lake and then out on the town for the night celebrating my friend Erin’s bachelorette party!

Last summer at Erin’s white coat ceremony

Because I love to pitch in when it comes to making food, I made a little Greek yogurt and spinach dip.  Again seriously addicting and delicious, I hope you enjoy!

Greek Yogurt Feta Spinach Dip

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red onion
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 4 green onions
  • 10 oz spinach
  • dash of salt
  • 2 Tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 1 cup of nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup of reduced fat feta
  • 1 tsp of dried dill
  • black pepper to taste

 

Directions

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.  Cook the onion, and garlic for about 2 minutes until soft.  Then, add in the spinach.  Continue to gently stir until the spinach is completely wilted down.

When the spinach is wilted, scoop it with a slotted spoon into a food processor.  Pulse about 5 times.  Next, add in the rest of the ingredients except the black pepper. Pulse until desired consistency.

Stir in the black pepper to taste.  This dip can be served cool, or warm!  Enjoy!
