I am feeling like quite the genius right now. I bet nobody has ever even heard of putting fruit in a blender.
Whaaaaa…you have? Ok, fine.
I had a rough weekend in the food department. Saturday I went to work and was surrounded by peanut m&m’s, Costco cookies and brownies. Basically my favorite foods all in one place.
Then Sunday I had another work event that involved cookies, peanut butter bars and brownies all from my favorite vegan bakery.
I am still on lock down due to my cleanse. I decided I needed to come up with some type of dessert because I can only eat so many beet chips.
Which by the way, I got my mandolin and I have perfected beet chips. They cook for 30-50 minutes depending on how thick or thin they are. Keep a close eye on them once they start to crinkle up.
That probably doesn’t look good to anyone but me. But they are good, I promise. The key is to stop cooking them before they are blackened to a burnt crisp. It’s a fine line.
Back to my dessert.
I am allowed one handful of blueberries a day. So I made this really quick sorbet and threw a little berry protein powder in to give it some oomph.
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 tablespoon berry flavor Vega Sport protein
3 tablespoons unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Place ingredients in a small blender or food processor. Blend until a frozen dessert like consistency. Eat!
This picture is a two for one! I said, “Lilly, look beautiful!” and she did just that. She is feeling SO much better. 🙂
Here is the vega sport protein. My favorite protein powder.
I will have more Vega recipes later this week!
