It’s time to say goodbye to your favorite coffee shop Frappe, this is where it’s at! Delicious and filling with 15 grams of protein and zero sugar (only 4 carbs) in Plexus 96, this is not just a drink but a meal replacement!
Here’s what you need:
- 4oz Trader Joe’s Coconut Cold Brew Coffee
- 1 packet Chocolate Plexus 96 (You can get it here)
- 8oz Vanilla Coconut Milk
- 1 cup ice
Pour into blender and blend, pour into large glass, this makes one big Frappe!
Weight Watchers SmartPoints:
- 7 points (5 for coconut milk and 2 for Plexus 96)
- 5 points (if using unsweetened vanilla coconut milk 3 and 2 for Plexus 96)
- 3 points (if using plain unsweetened almond milk 1 and 2 for Plexus 96)
I’m not much of a baker, at all, so when I make cookies I always worry a little, lol. To my surprise these came out great, they may not be pretty but they taste fantastic!
Here’s what you need:
- 2 cups rolled oats (or quick oats)
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup hot water
- 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350
Place butter, sugar and vanilla into mixing bowl, using a mixer, mix until fluffy.
Add flour and salt, mix well.
Add baking soda into water and stir well, add to mix. (If not all of the baking soda comes out of the cup just add a touch more of water to get it out).
Stir in oats and chocolate chips.
Drop by teaspoon full unto a greased baking sheet, cook for about 7-8 mins.
This makes 36 cookies 🍪 and they are 5 Weight Watchers Smart Points per cookie.
You know by now if you follow my blog I like to keep my recipes very simple, this is another one of those! My little guy has an egg allergy so I traded in the eggs for flax, I’ll put both variations in here but the WW Smart Points are with using the flax in place of the eggs, so keep that in mind when tracking.
Here’s what you need:
- 2 cups rolled oats (I used Trader Joe’s but any will do)
- 2 apples, any kind, chopped
- 2 cups of reduced fat milk (or whatever suits your family)
- 3 eggs (egg substitute: 3 tbsp milled flax seed & 5 tbsp water, set aside in bowl for 5 mins, stirred well)
- 1 oz craisins or raisins
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 1/2 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 325. Mix all dry ingredients together first, then add all wet ingredients, apples and craisins, mix well. Pour into greased baking dish, I used a 9×13. Bake 30-40 minutes or until sides and topped have a light brown color.
- Weight Watchers Smart Points: 7
- Makes 8 servings
💖 Refrigerate leftovers, reheat each serving in microwave for 1-2 mins, I added about a tbsp of vanilla almond milk on top of mine to give some extra moisture to it. So yummy!
My weight loss journey has been slow…. super slow… I breast fed for 20 months, yep and proud to do so BUT my body would not let go of the weight. So when I finally stopped I still wasn’t losing.. oh yay.. but I did NOT give up, I can officially say in the last month my body has regulated from nursing and my metabolism is back on track and I stepped on the scale this morning to see a number I haven’t saw in a very, very long time. I’m proud of myself, my journey even slow it’s happening, I feel FANTASTIC, I have energy, I workout, I eat right and take some certain amazing health products! So you guys, don’t quit, don’t give up, you got this!! Keep an eye on me because I have some major goals I aim to crush this year!
I’m always on the hunt for really great exercise pants, preferably capris. I stumbled upon these on HSN.com last week and I wanted to try them because obviously they’re cute, I love Jessica Simpson Style and they were on sale, so I ordered two pairs.😍
First off, I love the capris so much but I think they run very small, I normally would wear an XL in workout bottoms as I’m a size 16. I ordered size 3X because I read to size up and I have noticed a trend in designer clothing running smaller. (I probably would have fit in the 2X just fine because they are very stretchy.)
They are very comfortable and stretchy, they move with your body and do not heat you up while you work out, so your legs won’t get super sweaty.
I wore my colorful purple pair today while working out and I got several compliments on them, I’m telling you, they are really cute! 👌🏻
They also have a zipper pocket in the back to store your keys or card, it has a reflective stripe above the zipper as well.
The retail price is $54.00 each but I scored them on sale for $14.97 which I think is a great deal! I highly recommend giving this brand a try, I personally can’t wait to try more of her workout gear, just remember to size up!
