Including protein powders into your lifestyle is an easy way to get those nutrients that your body needs. For me personally, I need LOTS of protein, especially with all the training that I do. I train hard. I sweat a ton. And I push my body...whether it is running, spinning, or yoga, I love to move and to sweat, but I NEED to replenish my body with all the goods.

PEANUT BUTTER BANANA PROTEIN NICE CREAM

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 T Biochem Plant Protein Mood Vanilla Flavor (Includes ingredients known to diminish tension, stress and tiredness, helping to support a positive mood)

  • 4x cups of frozen banana slices

  • ¼ cup of nut butter of choice

  • ½ cup of unsweetened almond milk

  • Toppings: Chocolate Chips + More Nut Butter

PEANUT BUTTER BANANA PROTEIN NICE CREAM

Place Biochem Plant Protein Mood Vanilla Flavor frozen banana slices, peanut butter, and unsweetened almond milk into a blender.

  1. Blend on high until a smooth consistency has formed. If the consistency is too thick, you can always adds some more almond milk.

  2. Add in mini chocolate chips and pulse to combine.

  3. Serve with more chocolate chips and a drizzle of peanut butter. You can eat the nice cream immediately, which will have the consistency of soft-serve or you can put it into the freezer for more of an ice cream texture. I recommend eating it immediately!

Gather Superfoods - Product Review

Raise your hand if you LOVE healthy FATS!!! We all know my slight obsession with nut butters, but I also make sure to eat plenty of avocados, mixed nuts, and I always cook with olive oil, and now ghee too. I will 100% admit that I used to be one of those people who was scared of FATS. But this was back in the day when I honestly had no clue as to how to properly nourish my body. Times have changed and I am older and wiser and more in tune with my body and its needs. I LOVE fats!  I eat a lot of fats! They make me feel good inside and out and they work for my lifestyle, my training, and my belly. 

Today I am talking about ghee! I recently partnered up with Gather Superfoods to talk about their ghee and why you should check them out; follow them on social media; and start including their ghee into your eats! ENJOY!

What is GHEE...

Gather Superfoods Ghee is derived from butter. The butter is cooked down to remove all the butterfat/milk solids to create pure butterfat that is lactose and casein free. It is a great substitute for anyone with a dairy intolerance and great for anyone who wants to try another fat that is fabulous for you!

Why GHEE...

Gather Superfoods Ghee is a delicious and nutritious fat that you definitely need to add to your list of healthy FATS. Ghee is an ancient superfood that is known for its amazing healing abilities internally and externally. This healthy fat is known to alkalize our bodies; provide physical and mental stamina; reduce inflammation; and is loaded with vitamins and minerals. Some other fun facts to take note of: 

  • Lactose and Casein FREE
  • High Smoke Point of 485 degrees
  • Rich in Omega-3
  • Packed with Vitamins A, D, E, and K

What do I use GHEE for...

Gather Superfoods Ghee is a great replacement to your butter! You can use it for baking, sauteeing, spreading onto a delicious piece of toast, and drizzling it over your nighttime popcorn. The possibilities are endless! Check out this DELICIOUS Gather Superfoods recipe by my friend Sarah!
