Remember how I said I drank a protein shake as breakfast. Well the one I was drinking, the Raw Vegan one, is just so gross…It’s really a trial and error when it comes to protein shakes. I am trying the Isagenix brand new vegan protein shake. It has 8G of fiber, 22G of proteins and is soy free. I blend it in my ninja blender (I LOVE that blender) but I think a regular blender wil work too. Besides the already 8G of fiber, I add an additional scoop of fiber I purchased at a local vitamin shop.
It is a Berry Harvest taste and I must say, I really like it! I only added a 1 1/2 cups of coconut milk and a bit of splenda (You don’t have to) and it tasted really good! For the raw vegan one I had to add so many fruits and splenda to make it taste “ok”. But this one is really yummy!
I am also trying to stay away from Soy as much as I can. I have read and heard that too much soy is not good for you so I am experimenting with other soy-free products.
At $46 a box with 14 packets (about $6 a meal) it’s not too bad for a healthy, vegan, and tasty meal!
You didn’t read that wrong! yes ice cream! delicious, healthy, fat free, low sugar, and vegan ice cream!
There are many ways to make a delicious vegan ice cream
– Freeze a banana or as many as you want for future use
– Put the banana in a blender along with 2 tablespoons or cocoa power and Splenda to taste (don’t use brown sugar, it doesn’t mix right)
– Add some soy milk or coconut milk or any other milk alternative
– Blend everything in the blender until the texture is similar to that of frozen yogurt.
Another way to make popsicles is by blending any fruit you want with some milk alternative, Splenda, and a teaspoon of vanilla extract and freezing the mixture in popsicle containers overnight. The next day you’ll have some delicious tasting and very healthy popsicles!
And if you don’t want to go through the ice cream making process, then you can buy vegan ice cream at your local whole foods. So delicious is really delicious and you can find many many favors. It is pricey though so making your own assures you’re using the best ingredients and it’s inexpensive.
