Healthy Fruit Dip Recipe

Fruit Dip 3

Healthy Fruit Dip I made this fruit dip for my Local Summer Slim Down weigh in clients to sample this week. Everyone that tried it, loved it! When I teach clients about healthy snacking, I always say to pair a protein and a veggie or fruit. For example, the natural sugars in fruit will give a quick burst of energy and the fiber and protein will help sustain it by keeping blood sugars regulated. Examples would be apples paired with this Healthy Fruit Dip,  Hand-full of walnuts and berries, string cheese and an orange. Other examples of healthy snack pairings would be things like carrots, celery with hummus or banana and Natural Almond butter. More healthy snack ideas can be found HERE. Now on to this super simple recipe! 1/2 cup Plain greek yogurt 1 T Natural Peanut Butter (the oil on top kind, my fav is Schmuckers) 1 tsp Raw…

Smoothie in a Bowl Recipe

Smoothie In A Bowl

Sometimes I “eat” my smoothie instead of drink it. Especially if I am having it for lunch like I did today after church. This is my favorite but you can mix up the yogurt flavor, fruit, lime instead of lemon etc. to make it custom to your tastes. 1 container of Siggs Coconut yogurt 1 scoop of Shaklee 180 Vanilla Smoothee Protein mix Generous squeeze of fresh lemon Mix that together Top with several blueberries and granola with sliced almonds This is so good! With Siggs yogurt about 13 grams of protein and 1 scoop of Shaklee 180 protein at 8 grams of protein, this is a great option as main course for any meal! Enjoy! Let me know your variations and favorite recipe combos!
