Key Lime Pie Cups

Oh hello!  I have been slacking on my recipe sharing lately so I thought that I’d share my most recent creation: Key lime pie cups!  I was put in charge for Easter dessert this weekend so I went with something simple, quick, and delicious of course.  These are actually mini yogurt cups but key lime yogurt sounds weird.  Without further ado below are the ingredients and instructions!

What you need:

Nonfat yogurt (I used Siggi’s Vanilla)

Graham crackers (I used low fat Honeymaid)

Honey

Lime

Liquid Stevia (optional)

What to do:

Take 150g nonfat yogurt (an individual container is this size) and place in bowl

Zest lime and add a squeeze of lime juice

Add 1/2 tbsp honey

Add 1 drop liquid stevia (optional)

Blend ingredients

Pour 1/2 yogurt into cup

Take 1 graham cracker and smash up in Ziploc bag

Pour 1/2 cracker crumbles on top of yogurt

Layer on the other 1/2 of yogurt

Pour the rest of the cracker crumbles on top

Add additional lime zest and wedge for presentation

Black Bean Chocolate Protein Brownies

When I posted this photo of these brownies a couple of months ago I got a lot of requests for the recipe and have been meaning to share.  Anyways, two months later here it is!  I have tried a lot of different “black bean brownie” recipes and it seriously took me months to finally get it right.  Believe it or not these are just as good, if not better, after being refrigerated for several hours!  These actually have the consistency of brownies and a true chocolatey flavor!  This also uses minimal ingredients which is always ideal for me.  If a recipe has too many components I am bound to mess it up 🙂  These may be a fun weekend experiment if you are trying to stay on track through the Easter holidays and want to still get your chocolate fix without devouring 50 cadbury eggs!  Here is what you need:

1 can black beans

1 scoop chocolate protein powder

3 tbs dark chocolate chips

2 tbs Peanutbutter & Co Dark Chocolate Dreams

3 packets Stevia

Directions:

Preheat oven 350F

Drain beans and fill can halfway with water then blend

Pour mixture in mixing bowl and add protein powder, chocolate chips, and stevia

Mix well and pour into small baking pan

Bake for 20-25 minutes

Cool for 5 minutes and then top with Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanutbutter as frosting.

Also make sure to refrigerate for at least a few hours after making them so that the flavors blend.  While you can barely tastes the beans to begin with, the longer they refrigerate the less beany/more chocolately they taste!  I usually will refrigerate overnight.

This makes 8 servings
