Kiwi Mango Smoothie

Kiwi Mango SmoothieSo I had some kiwi and mango and thought a smoothie sounded good! I threw some ingredients in a blender and this is what I got. It makes about 2 servings so I froze the other half in a mason jar. The next time I wanted the rest of it,  I set it out on the counter for a few hours. Then, I dumped it in the blender and pulsed it until it was smooth! Enjoy!  

Serves 2 Servings

Oatmeal Raisin Protein Bites

I love the tastes of fall. Cinnamon is one of my favorite spices, but I tend to use it a lot more in the fall. These protein bites remind me of one of my favorite kinds of cookie… the oatmeal raisin cookie! They take a lot less work, require no baking, and are healthier! 

I just put the ingredients in a bowl. Then I mixed it with my hands ( the easiest way in my opinion). I used a tablespoon to scoop out the mixture and rolled them into balls. I placed them separated out on parchment paper in a 9×13 pan. It made about 15. Then I put them in the fridge for at least an hour. I like to freeze them as well. Then, I just get them out as needed. I usually like to let them thaw a while before eating them though. They are easy to put in lunches and make great snacks!

Base: 1 C. Oats, 1/2 C. Peanut Butter, 1/3 C. Honey

THEN ADD 1/4 C. of a Mix In

I chose coconut for these, and they were delicious. There are lots of options such as chocolate chips, raisins, other dried fruit etc. Be creative!
