Berry Dessert! + Thankful Thursday

Hey all! Happy one day closer to the weekend, if you will. :)

Today’s a.m. workout:


smoothie in a bowl!

Smoothie in a BOWL.

In the mix:

  • huge handful spinach
  • 1 cup frozen berries
  • raspberry Kefir <—about 1/4 cup
  • choc milk <—-about 1/4 cup
  • choc protein powder <—-1/2 scoop
  • water + ice
  • cinnamon
  • topped with oatmeal squares and pieces of a peach

I love voluminous breakfasts!

After snapping some photos I realized I forgot to add my signature raw oats on top!

my kind of sprinkled pretty

THEN after taking a few bites I realized I forgot the Greek yogurt and the raw oats were QUICK oats, not old-fashioned. Yuck.

oh well. It was still pretty good!

Berry Dessert!

So last night I had an amazing dessert (yes I sometimes eat dessert. duh!) that you MUST recreate at home. Especially because it is super easy, somewhat healthy, and very tasty. And you can believe me on that!

easy, quick, delicious

In the mix:

  • angel food cake (this was store bought)
  • light whipped cream
  • blueberries

See? Easy. Simple. Somewhat healthy. Versatile. Feel free to mix up the type of fruit! What kind of dessert type are YOU? Sometimes I go full on out and eat delicious Swiss chocolate, and sometime I go lighter fare if that is what I’m feelin’.

up close and yummy

Grab a friend and dig in!

    I am thankful for my childhood best friend moving back to town!!! That’s funny about the oats… once I discovered the old fashioned kind vs. the instant kind, I never went back! And I converted my sister!
