- I had an abundance of blueberries (I’d visited the Reading Terminal Market in Philly and everything was a dollar at this one stall, including pints of blueberries. Needless to say, I went a little overboard!)
- I had a strong peanut butter craving.
- I’d just done a REALLY strenuous lift session (new routine and I bumped my weights up).
This post-workout mini-meal was the result. Now I usually don’t eat before I go to my lifting class (it’s at 5:45 a.m. and I don’t care how agreeable my pouch is, it’s not accepting food that early!) so it’s essential I get something good in me once I get home. This was fast, easy and yummy! I call it a PB&B for peanut butter and blueberries, of course. In my former life I loved blueberry jam on a peanut butter sandwich, so I decided to play with my food and see if the flavor could work in a yogurt set-up.
NOTE: In the end I decided not to use the actual blueberries. (Stay tuned because I found another yummy use for them!)
Nik’s PB&B Greek Yogurt
- 6 oz. container unflavored Greek yogurt (I use 0%)
- No-calorie sweetener, to taste
- 1 tbsp. peanut butter powder (as you can see above I used PB Fit)
- 1/2 serving Blue Diamond Blueberry Almonds (the above is a whole serving because the half serving looked sparse in the picture!)
In a bowl, mix together yogurt, sweetener and peanut butter powder.
Top with almonds.
Simple as that.
Blue Diamond offers a variety of flavored almonds that you can use in a variety of ways. I must admit I was skeptical about the blueberry almonds (I’m skeptical about almost any kind of blueberry-flavored anything), but I really did enjoy them. They were lightly sweet and crunchy. A nice offset to my peanut butter yogurt.
Now, if you’ll excuse me I’m going to use my current post-workout endorphin high to knock out some laundry.
Keep playing with your food!
