I enjoy simple things: solitude, cheap sheet cake, and sunlight. I also believe that white is, in fact, a color. Bring me fresh flowers and we can be friends.

Recipe: Healthy Soft Serve

You guys, this is it.  This is the best thing I've made in probably the past three years.  It was such an accident and successful surprise that I am totally cool with bragging about how amazing and easy it is.  It's basically soft serve. WITH PROTEIN. Soft serve minus the calories, plus protein. What??

It's a million degrees in New York. No exaggeration - a million. Do you know what that feels like? It feels like a swampy sauna that someone left a bag of trash in.  Do you know what it feels like after you work out? It feels like you're swimming in an on Olympic sized pool of your own sweat as you walk home. Now, add some ravishing hunger. How does that feel? Insane is the answer. It feels, insane.  I wanted dinner - fast, with protein, and as cold as possible. 
The only logical answer is ice cream. Lots of it. 

All I did was put a frozen banana, four large frozen strawberries, two spoonfuls of cool whip, two scoops of vanilla whey protein powder, and a tiny tiny bit of almond milk into a blender and turn it on.  What I got - was heaven on earth.  It's creamy, perfectly sweet, cold, and delicious. The best part - you can eat it all with no guilt. 

Try it my friends.  Try it, and feel what it feels like in ice cold, soft serve heaven.
