Peanut Butter Banana Protein Oatmeal

10 Sep

Oatmeal is one of my FAVORITE things to eat for breakfast! ¬†Its quick, easy, cheap and filling… oh, and very nutrient dense.

I make it several ways – cinnamon raisin, diced apples, blueberry, etc… but my super FAVE is my PB Banana Protein Oatmeal. ¬†TRY it sometime!

  • 1/2 ¬†cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup water + a little more
  • 1 Tbsp all natural peanut butter (or PB2)
  • 3/4 scoop of banana protein powder (I use Gaspari’s Myofusion)
  1. Add oats into a microwave safe bowl and pour the water on top.  Use 1 full cup and then a few dashes more so that your oats come out a smidge liquidy
  2. Microwave for 90 seconds.
  3. Stir in PB and banana protein powder

Its THAT easy and quick!  Then you have a great meal to start your day Рgiving your body complex carbs and protein to get your metabolism going.  Oh yeah, and drink a big glass of water with that too!!

I’d love to hear your favorite oatmeal recipes…. especially any pumpkin ones if you have them!! ¬†Comment below! ¬†Also, be sure to let me know if you end up trying THIS recipe and let me know what you think ūüôā

3 Sep

Recently, the demand for Shakeology has been through the roof and I have been sending out more samples than usual.  I’ve noticed people have been asking me what my favorite recipes are for Chocolate Shakeology.  Personally, my all-time favorite recipe is to blend Chocolate Shakeology with 8-10oz of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (or Fat-Free Milk), 1 tablespoon of Peanut Butter, a handfull of ice cubes and a 1/2 a Banana.  The more liquid and less ice you use, the less thick it will be.  I have also compiled my other Top 5 list of my have Chocolate Shakeology recipes.  Give these a try and let me know what you think!

1. Peanut Butter and Jelly: Blend Chocolate Shakeology with ice, 8oz fat-free milk, 1 tablespoon of peanut butter, and strawberries

2. Cheeky Coconut: Blend Chocolate Shakeology + 1/2 Banana + Coconut Extract + ice

3. Mocha Chiller: Blend Chocolate Shakeology with 8-10oz of your favorite cup of coffee (chilled), and ice cubes

4. Pina Banana: Blend Chocolate Shakeology with 6oz water, 6oz pineapple juice (or pineapple chunks), a banana
