Ingredients

  • ½ mashed ripe banana
  • 1 small egg
  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup organic whole wheat flour (adjust accordingly so batter isn’t too dry)
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp dark chocolate chips
  •  

Directions

  1. In a mug, mash your banana with a fork then add the egg, honey, and vanilla extract and mix thoroughly with your fork.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and combine until a nice, thick but smooth batter forms.
  3. Microwave for 45 seconds and remove to check done-ness. You’re looking for a firm, cake-like top that springs back into place when you press it. If it hasn’t reached this point yet, keep microwaving in 15—20 second increments until done (microwave times vary so much depending on mug size and microwave power).
  4. Remove and let cool for a couple minutes then enjoy!

Banana Nice Cream with Healthified Reese’s Crumbles

Banana Nice Cream with Healthified Reese's Chunks 1

*Sitting here waiting for Vitamix to sponsor me because I basically only eat smoothie bowls and nice cream*

Seriously though. The healthy dessert combinations you can make with some frozen fruit and toppings are ENDLESS!!!! When I first became intolerant to dairy I immediately mourned the loss of ice cream (previously one of my all-time favorite foods) BUT now that I have my Vitamix (or any high-powered blender works), I think I like smoothie bowls and nice cream even more than real ice cream if that’s even possible!

Just think about it. You’ve made it to tonight. You had a delicious, healthy dinner. You’ve had a good day of exercise. You’re sitting on the couch watching Wild, Wild Country (okay so you’re probably not all watching what I’m watching on Netflix right now, but if you like documentaries I strongly recommend giving this one a try!). You’re craving dessert. Do you:

  1. Undo all your healthy progress from the day by giving in to ice cream and having a bowl full of cream and sugar that will cause all sorts of health problems for you ORRRRRRRRR
  2. Whip up a quick bowl of banana nice cream with Healthified Reese’s Crumbles on top?

Option 2 DUHHHHHHHHH!!! Nothing bad’s going to come to your body from a bowl of bananas, peanut butter, and dark chocolate. Nope. Nada. You’re actually going to get tons of vitamins and nutrients. Instead of having a heavy, crappy feeling in your stomach you’ll feel light as a feather and be ready to binge a million episodes!

So boycott the ice cream cravings and break out the blenders!!!! And enjoy your healthy guilt-free dessert.

Rootz Nutrition Paleo Protein Smoothie Bowl

rootz smoothie bowl 1

Okay you guys I used to have the hardest time when searching for a good protein powder. A lot of protein powders are just straight chemicals or seem good but then you read the ingredient label and you see some words that have like 40 letters in them and you’re just like huh? What exactly am I putting in my body?

Another common deterrent for me is when a protein powder has added sugars, contains dairy (like whey protein), or isn’t all natural. But then I came across Rootz Nutrition. I did some research on the company and basically it was founded by a guy who took up the Paleo diet, but quickly realized there were no pre or post workout supplements on the market that were Paleo-friendly. Since he was cross training daily, he wasn’t willing to give up that supplementation so he set off to create an all-natural, Paleo-friendly workout supplement.

And I am SO GLAD he did. I tried the pre and post workout supplements and not only did I hit several personal bests while lifting (and I usually don’t opt for a pre-workout supplement because I don’t like the jittery feeling it gives me, but no jitters after this guy, just straight natural energy), but both powders tasted DELICIOUS. Like, I cannot wait to have it again after my workout today. I’m motivating myself to lift hard again just so I can come home and make a protein smoothie bowl.

And just check out these ingredients. For the post-workout powder, it’s chocolate banana nut flavored and is made up of 4 different blends with some additional all-natural ingredients:

Protein Blend
Egg White Protein, Sacha Inchi Protein, Hemp Protein

Electrolyte Blend
Coconut, Banana

Superfood Blend
Chia Seeds, Flax Seeds, Maca Root, Bee Pollen, Acai, Goji Berries, Blueberries, Royal Jelly

Green Detox Blend
Spirulina, Chlorella, Kale, Spinach, Broccoli

Other Ingredients
Natural Chocolate Extract, Natural Vanilla Extract, Stevia Leaf, Cinnamon, Natural Sea Salt

IS THAT NOT AMAZING?! (And the ingredients are equally as amazing in the pre-workout too). So you’re loading up on crucial all-natural vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, AND protein! I definitely recommend. I’m a huge fan. And what I love about this smoothie bowl made using the post-workout protein powder is that it’s made with very basic ingredients so you get the full taste of the protein powder (which actually tastes GOOD). It’s not gummy or protein-tasting like other protein powders, it just tastes like chocolate banana nut. Exactly as advertised. So whether you’re looking to switch to a cleaner, nutrient-packed protein supplement or you don’t work out every day but think your body could use a little extra boost, I highly recommend Rootz! Check it out you guys! AND you can use the discount code “bitesbybai” for 10% off of your entire order, so get going!
