Operation dessert makeover was a success last night!

Around 7:45, just as I was about to settle in to watch The Bachelorette (this season looks juicy!!), I got my nightly craving. Instead of reaching for Ben & Jerry’s, though, I reached for Frozen Banana Custard…with a twist!


I whipped up Gena’s life-changing, one ingredient, frozen banana custard and at the end, I threw in a Tablespoon of milk chocolate chips.


Those babies took this thick, creamy, cold custard from good to GREAT!


Seriously. One ingredient. A frozen banana. And you get this. It’s crazy. And without the chocolate chips, you get over a cup for under 100 calories! You can’t say that about too many of Ben & Jerry’s concoctions! ;)


In other news, we’ve got another scorcher on our hands today, so I made a no-heat-required breakfast of an AB&J Thin Bun!


That’s one EarthGrains Thin Bun smeared with Crunchy Roasted Flaxseed Almond Butter and Red Raspberry Preserves.


Look at those crunchy almond and flaxseed pieces. This stuff is the creme de la creme of almond butters!


This sugar-free jam tastes a little like Koolaid. I’ll probably move on after this jar. Any good jam recs that don’t have a TON of added sugar?


Easy, fuss-free and NO HEAT REQUIRED!


I’ve got my favorite thing for lunch – leftovers! :D



6 Cheese Tortellini with Goat Cheese Marinara Sauce and broccoli.


Honestly, I would eat this sauce with a spoon if I could. It is so amazing.


Nothing like microwaving broccoli at the office to get people all fired up. It has a certain…odor…when cooked, shall we say, that a lot of people don’t care for. Ah well, what can you do?!


And some more crunchy almond butter and carrots. These days I find myself wandering around my kitchen, wondering what else I can put this almond butter on…it’s that good!


Got to get a move on – I’m treating myself to a cold, refreshing iced latte from Starbucks before work today. It’s my first iced one of the season – whee!

ps: I’m wearing white today and it’s not Memorial Day yet. Kind of freaking out about that…

Have a good Tuesday!


If you could have coffee (or tea!) with anyone this morning, dead or alive, who would it be?

I’d like to have coffee with my Grandma. She reads the blog every single day and I miss her!
