Trail Mix, Purple Oats, and Green Protein Ice Cream

It was a cold day today in MN. There were even threats of frost overnight tonight! What is going on?!?

On Friday I made this wonderful Trail Mix recipe from the Eat-Clean Diet website, including the coating. It is a wonderfully yummy snack and I CANNOT keep my hands off of it. Let me warn you, IF you make this recipe, package it into single serving portions and only eat one portion per day. Otherwise, you may never stop eating it.

This is the wonderful purple oats combo that I made for myself for supper on Thursday. It was delightful! It is a combination of the following:
All placed in the Vita-Mix. It was really good, but next time that I make this I will only mix the blueberries, chia seeds, wheat germ, protein powder and almond milk in the Vita Mix and then pour over the reheated porridge, because I really like the texture of the oat groats and brown rice.

Here is the Post Workout Ice Cream that I have been making for myself lately. It is the perfect mid afternoon pick me up!
  • 1 handful spinach
  • 1 scant handful strawberries
  • 1 tbsp flax seed or chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp wheat germ
  • 1 frozen date
  • 1/2 cup coconut water
  • 2-3 ice cubes of frozen whey strained from yogurt cheese
  • protein powder
