Hey peeps! Gosh dang I haven’t posted in a while, I really want to change that. School has been holding me back from posting for quite some time. I usually have homework or a project every week. But hey! it’s  thanksgiving break! so I managed to at least post this.

I am so freaking excited for Christmas! lol I made sure to take a picture of this recipe in front of my Christmas tree. We actually set our tree up weeks ago, which is pretty ridiculous 😀

OK! Now on to the recipe!

½ cup rolled oats

2 tbsp chia seeds

2 ripe bananas, 1  mashed, the other cut into round slices

Chocolate Peanut Butter Nicecream Protein Power bowl

My mom has been constantly telling me that i should stop eating vegan because i am not getting enough protein. She claims that she even thinks my hair is thinning out from protein deficiency (ugh). Well you know what mamasita? Watch me eat this protein power bowl, because it is literally overflowing with protein, AND IT’S NOT FROM ANIMAL PRODUCTS, IT’S FROM THE FREAKING BEAUTY THAT IS PLANTS! 😛

anyways, I went in the kitchen this evening to make some nice cream for dinner and decided, well heck, i’ll go fancy with it! I absolutely love how this turned out!! I chowed it down in literally 5 minutes, it was that good! I wish i would have made a power bowl sooner! I see them online all the time and they always make my mouth water lol 😀

 

Also, in case you were wondering  what protein powder i used in this recipe, it is Hemp Pro 50 plant based protein supplement. I was searching for a vegan protein powder to get more protein in my diet (hello,mom) and I found this beauty at Sprouts Farmers Market about week ago. It has been AMAZING for nicecream! It is wonderful because it has 15 grams of protein, 2.5 grams of omega 3 and 6, 7 grams of fiber, and NO ADDED SUGAR! Literally the only ingredient in this beauty is raw cold milled hemp protein powder!

Sadly, i am almost out of this already. I got this near my dad’s house in Houston one weekend and now i’m back at my mom’s. Their are like NO health food stores where my mom lives, so finding things like vegan protein powders prove to be quite difficult. Dang i should really move to my dad’s house one of these days 😛

Hey everyone! ever heard of rawnola? if you haven’t then you need to make this and eat it now because you are missing out! I first heard of rawnola a few months ago on Feastingonfruit.com (an amazing site EVERYONE should visit). Ever since I tried it I have been completely and utterly in love 😀 Anyways, the original rawnola is only made with 2 ingredients; rolled oats and dates. Well, a few days ago i got to thinking about how i could create more flavors of this delicious topping. Then BOOM! peanut butter came to mind, and holy fudge sicles am i glad i thought of it. I think this is my favorite kind of rawnola, besides chocolate rawnola of course ;D
