Siggi’s Triple Cream Lemon Almond Pudding

I searched all of Philadelphia for Siggi’s new Triple Cream yogurt with no luck. Then I went to visit my parents and finally had success! Of course I was not disappointed at all. I decided I needed a little dessert this weekend so here’s what I threw together. It’s slightly sweet with just enough lemon. Creating new recipes with my favorite products is so much fun!

This yogurt has only 8 grams of sugar and has 9 grams of protein. It’s ridiculously thick and creamy. Plus these ingredients are too good: Pasteurized Whole Milk, Pasteurized Cream, Cane Sugar, Lemons, Fruit Pectin, Live Active Cultures. I challenge you to find and try this new yogurt! P.S. This is not sponsored I just love my Siggi’s!

Energizing Green Morning Smoothie

Green smoothies can be packed with sugar or be a refreshing healthy treat. I love freezing leftover kale and spinach to use in smoothies. This smoothie packs in the vitamin C perfect for fighting off those winter colds. If you know Sincerely Nourished then you know I love my Perfect Fit protein, but I decided to go with Natural Citizen for this smoothie! It’s a plant-based organic protein powder made with hemp protein, brown rice protein, pea protein and sacha inchi protein. I’m currently obsessed with their Organic Energy blend. This is not a sponsored post – I just love the stuff!

Orange Cranberry Protein Muffins

Minneola oranges are a cross between a tangerine and a grapefruit. They are a bit tart, but sweet as well. You can absolutely make this recipe with regular oranges, but I had Minneolas on hand! This type of citrus is available from January to April. Oranges of course are a great source of vitamin C. Don’t forget they also have fiber, folate, and thiamine. One orange is approximately 120 calories and has 3 grams of fiber and 83 milligrams vitamin C! The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for vitamin C is 60 mg per day. Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that is essential for collagen production and repairing and maintaining skin, bones, and teeth. It acts as an antioxidant which protects cells against damage caused by free radicals and boosts our immune system against viruses and bacteria, as well as improves iron absorption.

Bonus: this recipe is made using protein powder. Baking with protein powder can be tricky, but it’s a fun way to add protein to baked goods. Make sure to store any baked items made with protein powder in the refrigerator! More protein powder recipes to come.

Peachy Chia Seed Pudding

DSC_0114Snacking throughout the day is important to keep your body energized. Choosing snacks that are satisfying and nutritious is key! This simple recipe is perfect if you’ve never tried chia seeds.

Chia seeds are a great source of fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and protein. They contain all nine essential amino acids making this a complete protein. Per 1 oz chia seeds contain 9.8 g fiber, 6.7 g polyunsaturated fats (omega-3’s are part of this group), and 4.69 g protein.

For this recipe you can use white or black chia seeds. There is no nutritional difference between the two.


Peachy Chia Seed Pudding

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milkDSC_0159
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp agave
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup diced peaches
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes

Directions

Whisk together almond milk and protein powder or use a blender bottle to combine. Mix in chia seeds, agave, ginger, and cinnamon. Make sure there are no clumps of chia seeds left. Place in the refrigerator overnight. Stir in peaches and unsweetened coconut when ready to serve.

Note: I love Vega Protein Smoothie plant-based protein powder. While whey protein is always a good choice this protein powder is my personal preference.
