Firecracker BCAA Slushie

 
Please tell me you all LOVED the “Firecracker” Popsicle as a kid, like I did! (well I still do, even as an adult)

MuscleSport BCAA’s taste EXACTLY like them! I normally just add a scoop to my water bottle and drink it while I’m working out.. but today I wanted to make a slushie…. & holy sh*t, it tasted dead on. Im obsessed. Greg (Videographer) was shocked at how identical it tasted to the Popsicle. BCAA’s can be taken through out the day as well, not just during your workout, so this would be a good option if you’re craving something sweet but want to stick to your diet! Use my athlete code for 30% off: “dalis30”

Arctic Zero 

A whole pint of ice cream that’s only 150 calories? Sounds way too good to be true, I know. BUT I recently received all of these flavors the mail.. & I’m in heaven.

These are the only flavors I’ve tried so far but I plan on trying the rest (haha). My favorite out of these 5 is the Buttery Pecan. You’re supposed to wait about 15 minutes after taking it out of the freezer to dig in so that it can have its creamy consistency. I’m not sure I made it the full 15 minutes but it was still amazing! 😍

I’ve attached some pictures of the nutritional facts below. You’re going to be in shock! I love that this company truly cares about the health of their consumers. Go check out their site & try these bad boys for yourself!  www.arcticzero.com

FullSizeRender

Recipe:

1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
1/3 cup baking stevia
2 egg whites (if using liquid egg whites 6 TB)
1 individual snack size unsweetened applesauce + a little more (5 oz.)
1/3 cup walden farms calorie free maple syrup
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
3 TB unsweetened milk of choice
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
Stevia sweetened chocolate chips (optional)

**Whisk all ingredients together. Fold in Stevia sweetened baking chips. Bake at 350 for 18-20 min.


Trail Mix

Trail mix is a perfect & easy snack to help give you energy through out the day! The problem with store bought trail mix is that it normally contains a lot of added salt or sugar. Easy Solution: Make your own! The one I made here contains:

Unsalted pistachios, sunflower seeds, pecans, cashews, organic raisins & banana chips, & granola.


Bake your QuestBar!

Need an alternative to Chocolate Chip cookies? These are perfect! Protein packed Quest Bars. My favorite flavor is chocolate chip cookie dough. You can put it in the oven as a whole, or chop it up into smaller pieces to make multiple cookies.

Bake in the oven on 350 degrees for 7 minutes! 

I also put some PB2 on there afterwards! I purchase them off of Amazon or their offical website because it is cheaper but you can also purchase them at GNC & other local places.
