New creations

So last night I prepped my overnight oats in my crunchy peanut butter jar (with a little still remaining) and this morning this is what i got:
yes indeed i enjoyed my Cocoa oats while watching 90210! They were so good! Cant you tell the jar didnt have an oat left in there.
Cocoa Banana Overnight Oats:
1/2 cup oats
1 tbsp chunky peanut butter (any nut butter works)
1/2 water
1/4 cup unsweetened homemade almond milk ( yesterdays post )
1/2 banana (mashed)
1 1/2 tbsp dark cocoa powder
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
splash of vanilla extract
Mix all together really good. Fridge. Enjoy in morning!

So it was Day 43 on LivFit which was Arm, Abs, and Cardio. I went through the moves twice and finished with 30 mins on stationary bike. I had my post-workout shake already made. Blended green tea, green tea leaves, ice, Sunwarrior Chocolate Protein, and 1/2 banana (remaining from breakfast); pretty such downed it in 2 mins.
After running some errands, when I got home I was hungry and wanted something fast:

Pumpkin Egg Whites:
1/4 cup canned pumpkin
2 eggwhites
1/2 cup Skim Ricotta Cheese
sprinkle of ground flax
2 tbsp toasted unsweetened coconut
1 tbsp homemade almond butter ( yesterdays post )
Put pumpkin in pan to heat, add both egg whites and whip together with whisk. Remove from heat to cool. I toasted coconut while it cooled. Pour in bowl, add ricotta and roughly stir. Sprinkle with flaz, coconut, and almond butter. I also had the last piece of my homemade whole wheat banana bread toasted.

Have any good recipes you've made with pumpkin you'd like to share? Or overnight oats?


  1. Your cocoa overnight banana oats have me excited. Must try.
