Chocolate, caramel, pecans like those Turtle candies. Soooo good. Makes a great breakfast or afternoon protein-packed snack. I had it for breakfast early this AM and still feel full and satisfied.
Shelly's Turtle Protein Dip
3 oz. Fage Greek Yogurt (I use 2%)
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Caramel Sauce Topping (Smucker's)
1 scoop Chocolate Protein Powder
1-2 Tablespoons Pecans, chopped
Mix together till thoroughly combined. Serve with banana slices, strawberries, apple slices, protein cake cubes for dipping. If you are early on... skip the pecans.
It really makes a difference when you actually love the protein powder supplements you use. I can seriously stick my finger in mine and lick it it's that good. I know some of you have given up on protein supplements... I did too, as soon as I was able to get all my recommended protein grams in from food. I was just so sick of choking down gnarly protein shakes and spending oodles of $$ on tubs of vileness some of which I wouldn't mix up for my worst enemy. Then at around 8 months I had a month long scale stall and was told I needed to up the protein. Oh. GOD. NO! Reluctantly (umm more like kicking & screaming) I went to my local nutrition store and well **insert hallelujah angel chorus** I found SEI's Max/Ultimate Protein and my post weight loss surgery life got 150% better.
Just so you know... I AM NOT BEING PAID FOR THESE STATEMENTS OF LOVE. Though... come to think of it. Hey SEI: I will gladly except most major credit cards and cold hard cash ;)
Seriously. It is good stuff. Happy to have found it and let all my post-op peeps know they don't have to suffer. They need to make sample packs. If you were in my 'hood I'd gladly make you up a shake or share a bowl of protein ice cream. Maybe grab a post-op pal and go in on a tub together the first time. Warning: you'll be hooked.
I know you were hoping by the blog title for some hot, sweaty & breathless sex story. Damn it I was too ;)
