Happy Wednesday! June Bootcamps are now launched and I am so pumped to be outdoors I had an awesome time this past week sweating up a storm with our Ottawa Chick Sergeants and Chicks (they are fierce!) and the warm weather got me thinking about summer pre workout snacks that won’t disrupt the tummy during a sweat session and are tasty too (I have the prob where food like to come back to “haunt” me during burpees – yikes!). So before my bootcamp with the Ottawa chicks I made the “ice cream” that I always make at home for a treat (I’m a dessert junkie) that is all natural, low cal, full of nutrients and not to mention delish.
The verdict? A killer workout, totally had energy and I did not feel like anything was going to come back up – yay!
Here are a few of my fave Chick Style “Ice Cream” recipes that I love and I hope you will too! All you need is a blender and a little patience to play with the proportions to find the balance that works for you.
CHICK STYLE “ICE CREAM” RECIPES
- Frozen Raspberries
- Fresh Orange (cut in half and scoop out the pulp & juice)
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (make sure to check for fake sweeteners and added sugars!)
SASSY STRAWBERRY CHOCOLATE
- Frozen strawberries
- Cocoa Powder
- Almond Milk
CHOCO BANANA PEANUT BUTTER
- Frozen Bananas
- All natural Peanut Butter (can also sub any other nut butter)
- Chocolate protein powder (make sure to check for fake sweetners or added sugar!)
You may need to add a little more liquid as needed or if you prefer it a little creamier – add some avocado for a healthy fat. It may change the color a bit but will taste great.
Also, all of the above can be changed into a smoothie by adding more liquid (throw some greens in too for extra nutrition!). Try them out and let me know what you think!
Have a fab day,
Your Head Chick, Laura xo
