Meathead Fro-Yo (Yo!)

Share This:

Lisa and I are heading on vacation to the Dominican Republic in 23 days, 17 hours, and 43 minutes (but who’s counting?), and as such have both been “dialing it in” on the nutrition side of things.

We haven’t been depriving ourselves too much. We still venture out into the city every weekend to find a new restaurant to try out and raid their bread basket, but she and I have definitely been a bit more “strict” during the week.

Lately, Lisa’s been making this cool low-carb/low sugar concoction every night that I thought I’d share with all of you since I’m sure many are similarly looking for healthy snack alternatives that don’t taste like sandpaper.

Meathead Fro Yo

1 Scoop Vega Chocolate Protein Powder, or Biotest Metabolic Drive Chocolate Protein Powder.

Note:  Any brand of protein powder will get the job done. But for those with gluten or dairy allergies, VegaSport would be the best option.

1 TBSP Spectrum Decadent Mix Blend (this stuff is delish —->)

2/3-1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk

1/2c Cup Canned Pumpkin (Note:  this is just regular ol’ pumpkin.  NOT pumpkin pie mix.  Nice try).

Some Ice

Blend it up! (Magic Bullet or some kind of serious Vitamix or Ninja recommended)

Choose a topping (or two…)

1 TBSP Cacao Nibs

1 TBSP Unsweetened Coconut Flakes

1 TBSP Chia seeds

It’s Creamy. It’s a little crunchy. It’s the perfect way for a meathead to end the day!

Give it a try and let me/Lisa know what you think.

Did what you just read make your day? Ruin it? Either way, you should share it with your friends and/or comment below.

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.

    DR for the wiiiiiin. You know MFF is going at the end of May, but I'm going on a pure vacation with my lady there in April. For a moment I did my math poorly and got excited about the possibility of an international meet-up. Then I looked at the calendar haha. Have fun!!

    What a jerk, Tony... DR? Seriously? I'm jealous. I've heard nothing but great things. My fave dessert: 2 6 ounce containers of 2% Fage Greek yogurt, placed in freezer for 13 minutes; dump into bowl; add three tbsp of Splenda; two tbsp of Polaner All Fruit; and as much PB as I feel like having.
