My Favourite Anytime Snack

by James Kerrison on April 15, 2010

I am a creature of habit.

When I find something that works, I tend to use or apply it over and over again.

Why keep looking for something bigger and better when you already have the solution or answer in front of you?

This brings me to my Favourite Anytime Snack.

Favourite meaning tasty, easy, enjoyable.

Anytime meaning to be enjoyed morning, noon or night (without the need to do a massive workout to earn it)

Snack meaning something to fill a void in your stomach without the need for a full meal.

In a moment of clarity I have come up with an insanely easy recipe that is super easy to customise to your liking, takes about 2 minutes to make, is super healthy, and will probably also get rid of those after dinner cravings!

Sounds great!!

I must admit though, I didn’t entirely come up with the idea myself. In fact you may already be doing this, but because there may be even one person reading this post that isn’t, I decided to tell you all.

Basically we are making a flavoured yogurt.

Start with one cup of natural yogurt. Low fat or full fat, you decide. The full fat is typically only about 3-4% anyway.

Add 1/4 cup of your favourite flavoured protein powder and mix in. The best way is to mix it, leave it for 2-5 minutes then mix again.

Add 1/2 cup of your favourite (frozen, thawed or natural) berries.

Mix again and eat!

Quality protein, quality carbs and a quality taste.

You can add 1/4 cup of crushed nuts into the mix for some good fats and extra fibre, or just eat them by themselves afterwards like I do!

My current favourite is banana protein powder and blueberries. I have played with chocolate and vanilla powder, both mixed with strawberries, which is just as good.

I am going to try the coffee protein powder without the berries and see what that tastes like. I’m not sure what coffee and berries would be like, although I have seen some recipes that mix coffee (or mocha) with raspberries. I’ll give that a crack and let you know!
