Super Protein Smoothie

I have been taking a walk everyday 2 times a day and I know that I haven’t been good in drinking lots of water and I know that I need more protein then what I am consuming so I decided to amp up this smoothie and add a lot of fresh and interesting things to this to make it different then the other smoothies that I have made in the past. I will tell you that I believe that this is my best one yet.

Ingredients: 

1 cup almond coconut milk 

2 tbls Dannon Vanilla Greek yogurt ( use what you have ) 

1 tbls chia seeds

1 avocado 

6 baby carrots 

3-4 fresh kale 

1 tbls honey 

1 tbls fresh pomegranate

Instructions:

Light and Fluffy Pancakes with Chia Seeds and Strawberries

So I started out with Hungry Jack Light and Fluffy Pancake mix and started added this as I saw them. I would have to say it’s pretty interesting the things that you add to things and didn’t realize how well they tasted. You can add or take items away that you like or do not like. That’s how I look at it.  So I am here to share what I created and it’s up to you to try what I have created or make it your way. I sure hope you all enjoy. 

 

Ingredients:

3-4 Cups Hungry Jack Light and Fluffy Pancake Mix

1 scoop of Vanilla whey protein 

1-2 tbls chia seeds

1-2 tsps cinnamon 

1 tsp pure vanilla 

1/3 cup chopped walnuts ( or nuts of your choice)

6-8 frozen strawberries ( or fruit of your choice) 

 

Instructions:

Combine all dry ingredients and add water to the dry mix until it’s as thin or fluffy as you desire your pancakes. Once batter is to your desire add in the vanilla, walnuts and strawberries and mix well. 

Pour batter onto hot surface and cook until done. You can top with Maple Syrup or a low sugar low, carb syrup or eat as is.
