Mini Blizzard + Decadent & Healthy Breakfast Recipe!

Posted Aug 20 2010 5:11am

Wow, that post title is awfully conflicting…

At any rate, I finally got my mini!

My Dairy Queen Mini Blizzard, that is!

I’ve been dying to try the new miniature sized Blizzards (which my Father-in-law says is a crime, as he doesn’t understand why anyone would want LESS blizzard! ;) ) since the “small” size is still ungodly large, so last night Ben and I finally went out to see them for ourselves!

I took one glance at the menu and immediately knew what I wanted – the Oreo Cookie Jar Blizzard. I know!

We’re talking, vanilla soft serve, Oreo cookies and chocolate chip cookie dough swirled with a caramel ribbon!!!! Ben got the same concoction and almost went blind it was so good!

All wrapped up in a tiny little package. ;)

Mini size + big flavor = big fan. It was still a TON of ice cream, but definitely a step in the right direction. Way to be DQ!

This morning I had another decadent feast – but a healthy decadent feast – for breakfast. Apple Cinnamon French Toast!

2 slices 100% Whole Wheat EarthGrains Bread  dunked in a mixture of 2 egg whites, a splash of vanilla & a dash of cinnamon, then cooked up on the stove top.

1 peeled, chopped apple microwaved for 1.5 minutes with a splash of vanilla, a dash of cinnamon, a splash of water (couple tablespoons) and a drizzle of agave nectar.

Drizzle with nut butter, if you dare! (I do!)

The water, agave nectar and juices from the apple create this thick, caramel-like syrup that oozes all over the French Toast.

Sooooo decadent with the nut butter, but healthy. Good lookin’ and good for you.

I’ll be full ’til noon!

At which time I’ll be diving into some leftover Stir Fry . :D

I don’t know if I’ve ever had stir fry with fresh corn on the cob, which is what I used, and it seriously took the dish to a whole new level.

One of these weekends I need to cut a bunch off the cob and freeze it so I can enjoy fresh corn later this winter. Need to do that for my Mother in Law too. She misses the fresh, Iowa sweet corn now that she’s out in DC !

Plus a Coconut Cream Pie Larabar Minifor an afternoon dessert. There’s something about this particular larabar that always leaves it soft and uber moist – like batter almost. It’s amazing!

ALL together now. :D

Well, Ben and I were going to take a half day of work today to head to the Iowa State Fair , but the forecast includes rain, rain, rain all afternoon. I think we’ll take it easy tonight and hang out there all day tomorrow. Sounds like a plan!

TGIF, peeps!

What do you get in your Blizzards?

Do you prefer sweet or savory breakfasts in the morning?

What are you doing this weekend?

Sorry for the barrage… ;)
