Good news – I’ve found coffee’s perfect mate!
Nope, not Coffeemate, good ol’ Half & Half with a sprinkling of Sun Crystals.
Sun Crystals is a stevia/sugar blend and lately I’ve been adding about a teaspoon of it with 2 Tablespoons Half & Half into my coffee.
I’ve always been a French Vanilla Coffeemate kind of gal, but the sweet Sun Crystals combined with the creamy Half & Half, seriously makes for the best cup of coffee I’ve ever made at home.
Dreamy and satisfying – and about $3 less than a Starby’s latte. I can get into that! What do you add to your coffee?
Now, if Half & Half + Sun Crystals is coffee’s perfect mate, vanilla whey protein powder is a Green Monster Smoothie’s perfect mate! (omg my hair is so long in that link!!)
I’m a HUGE fan of vanilla whey protein powder.
It’s silky, not grainy, slightly sweet, and adds such a lasting feeling of fullness to my smoothies.
The Swanson brand was no exception. It gave the Green Monster I made for breakfast a nice, thick texture, a sweet hint, and staying powah!
In the mix:
- 1 scoop Swanson Vanilla Whey Protein Powder
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 Tablespoon almond butter
- 1 cup skim milk (out of almond!)
- 2 big handfuls spinach
Blended to the moon and back,
and presto! A nutritious and refreshing smoothie. I love drinking spinach for breakfast. It sets such a good tone for the rest of the day, no? :mrgreen:
Even better news, I’ve found lunch’s perfect mate – Mayo Free Tuna Salad!
I HEART this recipe.
It combines crunchy carrots, zesty pickles and protein-packed tuna, with creamy Greek yogurt and Dijon mustard.
SO FLAVORFUL!!!!!! And perfect to plop onto a Thin Bun with some spinach and call it a day lunch.
Well we better add a Tropical Fruit Tart Larabar,
and a sweet Pink Lady Apple, THEN call it lunch. ;)
In other news, Bachelorette?! I can honestly say that for once, I was surprised! I truly thought she wasn’t going to pick either guy! Do you think it will last?! I…don’t… :( I know! I think they’re both great people, but I just don’t see it. I hope they prove me wrong!!!!
Since I liked the Vanilla Whey Protein Powder so much, Swanson Vitamins decided to let me give away a cannister to a reader – wheee! You have until 5pm tonight to enter by leaving me a comment describing your favorite smoothie combo.
Have a great day guys!
