Lemon Blueberry Keto Cupcakes made with Vanilla Complete Whey Protein!

Always remember that any food cravings can be made with a healthier version in mind! I had a craving for a lemon blueberry cake that my mother would make when I was a kid. We made a smaller portioned version of this cake for a single serving made with almond flour and xylitol for sweetness. We added Creamy Vanilla Whey Protein to the icing which makes this recipe ideal for a quick breakfast or snack full of protein, vitamin C and antioxidants!

What makes this a ketogenic recipe?

Strawberry Mousse made with Creamy Vanilla Raw Whey Protein, fresh organic strawberries and coconut cream!

We love creating healthy dessert options that are incredibly easy to prepare! 

Our Strawberry Mousse is great for a quick breakfast, after workout snack or refreshing dessert!

Ingredients:

1 pound of Organic Strawberries

2 packets of unflavored gelatin

1 can of coconut cream

2 Tbsp. of xylitol (for added sweetness)

2 scoops of Complete Whey Protein in the Creamy Vanilla Flavor

1 cup of Plain Greek Yogurt

Instructions:

1. Heat only the coconut cream, gelatin and xylitol in a saucepan on the stove on low heat just until the gelatin dissolves. Remove from heat.

2. Core the strawberries and blend.

3. Add the Complete Whey Protein and Greek Yogurt to the strawberry blend.

4. Add in the sweetened coconut cream-gelatin mixture.

5. Pour mixture into serving bowls or popsicle molds.

6. We used small heart shaped cookie cutters to make the strawberry garnish.

7. Refrigerate overnight.

Health Benefits of this recipe:

Strawberries are full of healthy antioxidants like quercetin and kaempferol. They also contain vitamin C, folate, potassium, vitamin K, and magnesium.

Strawberries aid in weight management.

Maintaining a healthy weight is one of the best defenses against type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Strawberries are naturally low calorie (around 28 kCal per serving), fat-free and low in both sodium and sugar.

The antioxidants found in strawberries help lower LDL cholesterol and reduce inflammation in the joints.

The potassium found in strawberries can help regulate blood pressure and may even help to lower high blood pressure by acting as a buffer against the negative effects of sodium.

Coconut cream is rich in iron which helps supply oxygen to your blood cells and magnesium which helps over active muscles relax.

Coconut cream contains many vitamins, minerals and electrolytes, including potassium, calcium and chloride.

The saturated fat in coconut is made up of short-chain and medium-chain fatty acids the body quickly turns into energy instead of storing as fat which can aid in weight loss.

Xylitol is like sugar, except good for you. While sugar wreaks havoc on the body, xylitol heals and repairs. It also builds immunity, protects against chronic disease & has anti-aging benefits.

Xylitol is a great sugar substitute that breaks down in the body slower without causing sugar spikes. This is an ideal sweetener for Diabetics.

Gelatin is a SUPERFOOD that helps boost your energy!
Gelatin helps with digestive issues, helps soothe joint pain, helps repair skin, hair and nails and reverses inflammation!

Gelatin
is loaded with protein and can help you lose weight by boosting your metabolism. It also helps you feel fuller longer- a key to fat loss!

Greek yogurt
has twice the protein content of regular yogurts, is lower in lactose and contains probiotic cultures which are great for gut health.

Greek yogurt
 is an excellent source of 
calciumpotassiumproteinzinc, and vitamins B6 and B12.


Consuming Raw Whey Protein every day can help replace fat with lean muscle which leads to a higher metabolism and increased energy.

Benefits of Raw Whey Protein include:

MUSCLE BUILDING

FAT LOSS

IMPROVED ENERGY

DIGESTIVE HEALTH

WORKOUT RECOVERY

IMMUNE BOOSTING

Raw whey protein is an excellent source of cysteine, the precursor of Glutathione which is the most abundant anti-oxidant in the body that protects us from damage due to toxins and free radicals.  

Drinking a Raw Whey Protein shake every day helps with weight loss by reducing fat and adding lean muscle.

Chocolate Cherry Chia Protein Bars January 22, 2018 19:41

Chocolate Cherry Chia Protein Bars made with Complete Whey Protein, dark chocolate, raw almonds, dried cherries and chia seeds!

We made a batch of delicious Chocolate Cherry Chia Protein Bars. Great for breakfast or a quick snack to satiate your hunger! 

So easy to make! This is a No bake recipe with NO Added sugar. Just blend and form the batter into a square to cut into smaller portions or roll into balls:

1 cup of pitted medjool dates (we softened them in hot water before blending)

1 cup of raw almonds

4 scoops of Complete Whey Protein in the Delicious Chocolate flavor

2 Tbsp. of Chia Seeds

1/4 cup of dried cherries

1/4 cup of dark chocolate bitties

2 Tbsp. of Coconut oil

Sprinkle with Himalayan Sea Salt right before serving!

Homemade Protein bars made with Complete Whey Protein, raw almonds, chia seeds, dark chocolate and cherries!

Health Benefits of this recipe include:

The cacoa found in dark chocolate is full of anti-oxidants and serotonin, a natural antidepressant. 

The flavonoids in dark chocolate help reduce insulin resistance by helping your cells to function normally and regain the ability to use your body's insulin efficiently. Dark chocolate also has a low glycemic index, meaning it won't cause huge spikes in blood sugar levels.

Chia seeds help detoxify the body and aid in weight loss.

Chia seeds contain Omega 3 Fatty acids and help dieters feel full longer. 

Chia Seeds contain complex carbohydrates that are absorbed slowly and metabolized over a long time so you feel satisfied for longer periods of time.


When a chia seed is exposed to water, it forms a coating of gel, increasing its size and weight. Since the gel is made of water, it has no calories. It’s also difficult to remove from the seed, meaning that it helps your body think it is full, without adding calories!

Keeping balanced levels of blood sugar is important for both health and energy. Both the gelling action of the seed, and it’s unique combination of soluble and insoluble fiber combine to slow down your body’s conversion of starches into sugars. If you eat chia with a meal, it will help you turn your food into constant, steady energy rather than a series of ups and downs that wear you out.

Raw Almonds are a SUPER FOOD. Almonds contain: Protein, Dietary and Insoluble Fiber, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin E, Thiamin, Folate, Vitamin B, Biotin, Potassium, Iron, Calcium, Zinc, Copper, Magnesium and Phosphorous.

Medjool Dates
are full of fiber, vitamins and minerals. They contain B Vitamins, Copper, Iron, Potassium, Folate, Manganese and Calcium. They help keep your bones strong and your digestive system healthy! They add great flavor as well as being a natural sweetener. Their gooey texture is ideal for creating healthy snacks you can take on the go.


Coconut oil
contains fatty acids which help boost brain function, contains Lauric acid which is highly anti-microbial, and can help you lose weight by reducing abdominal fat.

The medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil have been shown to increase 24 hour energy levels by as much as 5%, which can lead to significant weight loss over the long term.

Dried cherries are a great source of natural fiber, potassium, copper, protein, iron, and carbohydrates. The red coloring in cherries contains anthocyanin which is a powerful antioxidant which prevents free radicals from damaging our cells.

Dried Cherries
are great for your immune system as they contain vitamins A,C & E.


Raw Whey Protein can help replace fat with lean muscle which leads to a higher metabolism and increased energy.

Raw whey protein is an excellent source of cysteine, the precursor of Glutathione which is the most abundant antioxidant in the body that protects us from damage due to toxins and free radicals.

Chocolate Chip Vegan Cookie Dough Bites May 15, 2017 17:28

1 cup of raw cashews
1 cup of almond meal
1 cup of oats
1 cup of coconut oil
1 tsp. of vanilla extract

The flavonoids in dark chocolate help reduce insulin resistance by helping your cells to function normally and regain the ability to use your body's insulin efficiently. Dark chocolate also has a low glycemic index, meaning it won't cause huge spikes in blood sugar levels.

Raw almonds are filled with healthy fats. While they do contain a small amount of saturated fat, most of the fat in almonds is monounsaturated fat, which is known for its ability to promote healthy cholesterol levels and cardiovascular health.

The medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil have been shown to increase 24 hour energy levels by as much as 5%, which can lead to significant weight loss over the long term.

The health benefits of coconut oil include hair care, skin care, stress relief, cholesterol level maintenance, weight loss, boosted immune system, proper digestion and regulated metabolism. It also provides relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV, and cancer, while helping to improve dental quality and bone strength. These benefits of oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, and their respective properties, such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-fungal, antibacterial and soothing qualities.

Homemade Coconut Matcha Ice Cream October 29, 2016 08:13

Homemade Coconut Matcha Ice Cream

Make your own creamy Green Tea ice cream packed full of healthy fats, immune building amino acids and healthy antioxidants! This recipe is so easy to make!

Blend all ingredients and freeze overnight:

1 can of coconut cream (we like Trader Joe's)

1 avocado

2 scoops (1/4 cup) of Complete Whey Protein in the Creamy Vanilla flavor

4 tsp. of Matcha Green Tea powder

4 Tbsp. of Xylitol (for sweetness)

1 tsp. of Pure Vanilla extract

Dash of Himalayan Sea Salt

Squeeze of lemon juice

Benefits of the ingredients in this recipe:

Green Tea contains the antioxidant EGCG which causes your body to produce heat increasing your metabolism which burns off your body fat.

EGCG Health Benefits include Weight Loss!
Obesity has risen to epidemic proportions in many Western countries. EGCG may help you lose weight via three main mechanisms:
    •    Higher Metabolism
    •    Higher Fat Burning
    •    Reduced Fat Storage

Green tea has strong anti-inflammatory properties and thereby decreases arterial inflammation which decreases the chances of sticky build up on the artery walls. This could also lower blood pressure as it eases the heart’s task of pumping blood through less inflamed arteries.

Green Tea causes carbohydrates to be released slowly, preventing rises in blood-insulin levels and this also causes your body to burn fat. In addition to burning fat, green tea lowers cholesterol, prevents diabetes, stroke and dementia. 

Other positive effects that may happen when you consume green tea on a daily basis are reduction in hair loss!

Read more about it here: Can Green Tea stop hair loss?

Coconut cream is a good fat full of lauric acid which boosts immunity and speeds up your metabolism. When lauric acid (in coconut cream) converts to monolaurin (an anti-viral, antibacterial, and antiprotozoal monoglyceride), it boosts your immune system and defends your body against many viruses. Coconut cream also improves digestion and bowel function and helps speed up your metabolism.

Avocado is rich in monounsaturated (good) fats which can reverse insulin resistance and help to regulate blood sugar levels. Perhaps the biggest health benefit of avocados is that by adding avocado to certain foods, you can improve your absorption of nutrients. This means that when you combine other fat burning foods with avocado, you can improve your nutrient absorption up to 400%!

Xylitol is like sugar, except good for you. While sugar wreaks havoc on the body, xylitol heals and repairs. It also builds immunity, protects against chronic disease & has anti-aging benefits. Xylitol is a great sugar substitute that breaks down in the body slower without causing sugar spikes. This is an ideal sweetener for Diabetics. You can find Xylitol at Sprouts and Market Street.

If you could design a perfect protein for the human body it would closely resemble Complete Whey Protein with all of the amino acids that your body needs to function at its best. Your body will love it!
