As soon as I saw these, I literally squealed with delight!!! I cracked those babies open to taste test and then decided on some yummy apple with PB2 and Choco PB2!!! Oh, nothing could get me down right now….except this:
Not to worry, I had another one hanging out ready to be sliced up and smothered with PB2…so, onto the apple slicer
I guess it is time to retire throw away my apple slicer….no hesitation, I need to buy a new one asap!! After I pried my apple out of the slicer and then hacked it to death I made a yummy plate of peanut butter goodness
It is so sad that as soon as I crack open a new treat, I am already thinking about how to ration it out until I leave here because I don’t know if I should order anything so close to us leaving! I will savor every single heaping spoonful bite! Then it was time to get my butt in the kitchen and whip out some more goodies….the plan: coconut butter, chocolate/banana coconut butter to make into raw fudge cake (a la Katie ), peanut butter/chocolate/coconut balls, and then some almond date balls for a post-run snack! So here we go, some new ingredients to add some different flava!!
The food processor seems to be heading down the same road as the apple slicer…it is just not cutting it (ha ha, get it?) I had the raw coconut going for about 20 minutes and it STILL did not turn to buttah, so I am going to have to try to and get another one so I do not have these problems. I was waiting so long for the coconut, that I started to roll and crush the Kashi Go Lean for my balls!
Gavin was happy to chill in his high chair eating some yummy Arrow Root Biscuits from Canada. He loved watching the garbage awesome processor whirl the coconut around!
We got the coconut/banana/chocolate butter all made (finally!) and pressed into a container to freeze. Then it will go in the fridge so I can cut it into mini triangles for some yummy raw fudge cake…I am going to put a drizzle of Wax Orchards, Natural whipped cream, and (hopefully) some fresh strawberries on top!
Okay, time for the peanut butter, Kashi Go Lean, Date and Chocolate balls…mixed up: 1/2 cup of Kashi Go Lean (crushed) 2 tsp PB2 powder, 1Tb Cocoa, 8 dates, and 1tsp of shredded raw coconut….use more crushed Kashi for dusting!! These look the same as the other Fudgie Friends, but have such a different taste!!
Next was the traditional Almond/Date fudgie friends, but with a few tweaks due to the new ingredients! I added some coconut buttah shreds, a drizzle of almond soy milk and a little cocoa! Of course, I rolled ‘em up with a few dark choco chips!
I decided to whip up my overnight oats so they are ready for my trail run with Tricia and WOOT tomorrow morning, I just want to eat them as soon as I make them!!!
So enough with the kitchen, the Youngin’ and I are ready to shake of the day. He chose to scream and laugh at Eric through the patio window (Eric is working on James’ Batmobile- AKA: Power Wheels that he has pimped out). I decided to shake it off with the Shred!!! Love that Jillian Michaels!! I spoke to a friend who recommended her Yoga Meltdown…so guess what I am going to be doing tomorrow to meet my Yoga goal for the week?!!! I plan on doing it in the afternoon after I have ‘Mommy and Boys” fun together…the Hub is goin’ fishin’ with the big boys!! I will give a review of what I think about it, but I am sure it will be awesome!!! !! I know I had a GREAT day, and cannot wait for a trail run, new fudgie friends, and a day with my boys tomorrow!
