Every once in a while (aka every 8 hours or so), I am in need of a sweet treat. I have found that this dessert, which uses Chocolate PBFit, is one way that I can get my fix without killing my diet.
The main ingredients in this dessert are banana and avocado. Add a few additional ingredients, and you have yourself a rich, creamy dessert that is guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth.
2 Ripe Bananas
1 Ripe Avocado
1/2 Cup Lowfat Milk
3 TBSP Chocolate PBFit Powder
5 TBSP Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 TBSP Honey
1 TSP Organic Bourbon Madagascar Vanilla
Directions: Blend banana, avocado, and milk. Add in Chocolate PBFit powder, cocoa powder, honey, and vanilla and blend until smooth. Refrigerate for two hours. Top with an assortment of slivered almonds, chia seeds, and coconut flakes. The avocado gives this dessert a rich and creamy texture, the banana and honey deliver the sweetness, and the Chocolate PBFit, Vanilla, and Cocoa powder bring the flavor to the party. Enjoy!

Breakfast is BY FAR my favorite meal of the day. I love coming up with new ideas and recipes for this day part. I am a huge fan of quinoa, but up until now, I was mostly eating it at lunch or dinner in savory dishes. If you enjoy oatmeal, you will LOVE quinoa used as the main ingredient in this subtly sweetened breakfast bowl.
