We Snack (mostly) Raw Wednesdays: 6 Ingredients, 4 Treats!

6 Ingredients = 4 Delicious Desserts


I entered this in a contest with Tone It Up last summer for their new protein, Perfect Fit Protein. It was fun and tasty!  And all of these are raw except the cookies =)



Start by blending the banana, chocolate Zico coconut water, Perfect Fit Protein (or any Protein powder you have on hand), Cocoa and Peanut Butter.  Then you can pour in a glass and enjoy "Chocolate Coconut Chill" or pour into a popscicle mold and freeze for a few hours and you have the "Peanut Butter Cup Pop." To make the "Creamy Coco-Nana" just pour into an ice cream maker, or freeze and stir every 30 minutes until it's the consistency of soft ice cream. 
Then to make the "No Bake PB Bananers" pour the blended ingredients into a sauce pan and heat with the extra Tbsp of peanut butter.  Add the oats and remove from heat.  Combine and add carob chips.  Drop spoonfuls on wax paper and refrigerate for an hour.  Enjoy 4 delicious desserts with good for you ingredients!!!

  1. I wanted to tell you that I'm glad (and hoping) that you keep up your regular Wednesday post. I've enjoyed these last two!

    I have a question regarding your recipes though. I hate coconut water (I know most people adore it, sorry). Can I just skip that and the protein pack?

  2. Thanks Mama!! ;)
    I actually don't like coconut water either, except Zico Chocolate coconut water! It the only brand I know that makes chocolate, and it is good. The other flavors and brands I have to add to smoothies or freeze into ice cubes to enjoy. =)
    If you skip the coconut water and protein you'll have to add something else I would think to keep some of the right textures and consistencies. The coconut water could maybe be replaced with juice or regular water. And you can use 1 serving of any protein powder. I am not sure what would make a good replacement for the protein powder though.
    Try it out and let me know what you liked and how your changes went! I'm interested to know!

  3. Thanks. Maybe I can get some protein powder sample packets to try out from one of my gym-going friends. Surely they give away that kind of stuff to get you to buy that HUGE container, right? LOL. And I'll try the chocolate coconut water too - as long as I can find it here. :/ I don't go shopping again until Monday, but I'll try to come by and let you know how it goes!
