-300g greek yogurt (vanilla would be obvious choice here!! But I cant help but think the fat free plain would have less sugar)

-Fruit, any type amount dependent upon how fruity you want it. I usually buy the frozen mixed kind in the freezer isle.

-Chopped raw nuts, honey, peanut butter, oats, cinnamon, anything else you’d like optional!

In a large bowl mix all ingredients. Line a 9×9 pan with wax paper or tin foil. Pour into pan, cover with plastic wrap, freeze over night. BOOM!

OMGLOOOOB I just discovered sugar free chocolate syrup!!! 15 calories/0sugar/0fat/50mg sodium per 2 tablespoon!!! I will be putting this on EVERYTHING. Including the new Sea Salt Caramel Arctic Zero

 

rice-main

Just by making a few changes like using gluten free (which is also made with brown rice) rice krispies, and honey instead of marshmallows, and adding protein powder, these become a well-rounded snack that is perfect to make with kids, or as a pre or post-workout treat!

4 cups rice krispies

1/2 honey

1/2 cup protein powder

1/2 cup peanut butter

sugar free chocolate chips

Pour rice krispies into a large bowl, and pour honey, peanut butter, protein powder, into bowl with the rice cereal.

Spray a spatula with non-stick spray, (this will make it so the batter doesn’t stick to the spatula), and stir until everything is well combined.

Spoon batter into the prepared baking dish 9×9 sized, and spread batter evenly into pan with the spatula.

If using chocolate, melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until chocolate is melted. (Be careful not to over-microwave, or chocolate will burn). Pour the melted chocolate over the batter and spread evenly.

Place rice krispy treats in the freezer for about 30 minutes, until they firm up, and move them to the fridge. Keep rice krispie treats stored in the fridge to keep them at the perfect ‘firm’ texture! (Note: You could also cut them into squares, and wrap them individually, and put them back in the freezer for a quick healthy treat that is ready when you are!)

 

 

Clean Eating PB & J Overnight Oats 2Photo May 20, 3 19 11 PM

Ingredients:
• Nut butter jar, with little nut butter left inside
• 40g oats
• Fruit of choice
• Sweetener to taste or cinamon
• 1/8tsp Maple or Vanilla extract if desired
• hot water, or amount desired (I used just over 1 cup, whatever filled the container) Almond milk & Coconut milk would work great too

Add all of the above to the nut butter jar
Seal tight with lid, shake and place in fridge overnight or a few hours just enough for oats to absorb liquid.
Enjoy cold or hot

If you have not already done so, I HIGHLY recommend you do yourself a favor and march right out and pick yourself up some Arctic Zero ice cream right meow. I like to mix my flavors.  Half vanilla maple, half mint chocolate, or chocolate peanut butter. But I will always shovel cookies and cream in my mouth like there is no tomorrow!! You can also do things like this:

I always bake my Quest bars, just maybe 5-10 minutes in an oven, or 15 seconds in the microwave. If you bake them in the oven and make cookies, you can then make an Quest bar Arctic Zero ice cream cookie sandwich.

Easy way to cook and peel hard boiled eggs

Easy way to cook and peel hard boiled eggs

I love this idea because eggs are wonderful in every way!! And keeping a big ole tub of hardboiled eggs in the fridge is an easy go to snack or breakfast, but they are so much work!! And for me usually turn into a mess because I never cook them right, and then they get all over the place when I try to peel them I end up looking like they’ve exploded everywhere…

Preheat your oven to 325. Bake for 30 mins. Remove & put them in ice water for about 10 mins!
