#RECIPEFRIDAY: Protein Packed Berry Spread & Topping!

Hey everyone and welcome another edition of...


Yep...
It's already that time again!

I must admit...

I had a bit of hard time creating a recipe this week as...

The thing I had initially wanted to share didn't quite turn out as I had hoped! (Although the idea in my head was awesome!)

It's not that it didn't taste good ...
It just wasn't AS good as I had envisioned it to be.
I don't want to give out a recipe that's doesn't really work so...
I'll rework it another time :)

Anywho....

I did end up concocting something that came out tasty so...

That's exactly what I will be sharing with you today!

It's easy...
It's quick..
It's tasty and best of all...
It's protein packed!

Now...

If you're like me then...

You love adding a little sweetness (and a little protein) to some of your favourite eats!

So...

I decided to come up with my very own Berrylicious Protein Spread/Topping!


So far...

I've used it to top my Greek Yogurt...


And...

To spread on my Oatmeal Protein Bites!


I won't deny...

Both ways have been quite delish!

But what's even better is...

It only takes 4 ingredients to make!


Here's the recipe friends!

Protein Packed Berry Spread & Topping

by *CaNdY FiT*
Cook Time: 2 minutes

Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup Mixed Berries of choice (I went with Blueberries and Blackberries)
  • 2 tbsp Ground Flax Seeds
  • 1 scoop High Whey Revolution Protein Powder (I only had Chocolate but I think Vanilla or Strawberry would have been really good too)
  • 1/4 cup Water
Instructions
  1. Add your Berries into a medium sized bowl
  2. Place your bowl in the microwave for about 1 minute (until berries turn soft, almost into a liquid state)
  3. Remove from microwave and with a spoon, smoosh the berries
  4. Add your Ground Flax Seeds, stir and microwave for about 30 seconds
  5. Remove from microwave, add your Protein Powder and a touch of water (if necessary, you'll know based on the texture you prefer)
  6. Mix together until thick (and gooey like) in consistency
  7. Place your mixture into a Tupperware container and refrigerate until you're ready to spread or top the goodness around!
Note
  1. You have the option of first combining the Berries, Ground Flax Seeds and Water then placing it the microwave for about 1 min 30. After mixing it all together, you would then add your Protein Powder (both ways work).
  2. You can also add more water if you want a less jelly and more liquid like texture.

Also, if you don't want to add the Protein Powder, enjoy the spread without it! Use it like you would a jam, spread or topping or sorts!

  21. Simple and yet so perfect. You're so creative. I am thinking of making this and spooning it over chicken or a white fish, like Halibut or on a crostini with goat cheese and a glass of wine. Perfecto!

  23. Other than the consistency being different I wonder how this would work without yogurt to make it vegan? So many ideas come to mind for using this topping. Pancakes...yum! Or in oatmeal!
