Too good not to rave about. I am not easily "blown away" by a lot of "healthy" recipes. I am not that starving... YET... however, if I don't share this with you, you will never understand how amazing my breakfast was this morning. It knocked my socks off and it all began last night. I was doing my usual thing... browsing blogs that I have come across, searching for new recipes to try just to change things up a bit and there it was. BANANA CHEESECAKE OATMEAL. I don't eat a lot of banana's. I am more of an orange person lately but I had some and thought anything that is supposed to taste like Cheesecake has got to be good right? A-MAZING! So since the recipe only called for 1/2 of a banana I also made myself a Banana Cheesecake Protein shake using the other half of it. DELISH.

Banana Cheesecake Protein shake
1/2 banana
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
ice (to your liking)
1/4 C cottage cheese or yogurt
1 Tbsp cheesecake pudding mix (sugar free, fat free)
blend it up and wha-la you have the yummiest creamiest "shake"

Back to the oatmeal. I only used about half of it in my oatmeal. I didn't mix it in, I just threw it on top and had a little with each spoonful. I then ate the rest of it after the gym for a quick snack. So good. Too good. What are you waiting for? Go try it!
