Silk Disappointment

So yesterday I was trying to decide what I wanted for breakfast, and something cool and refreshing sounded good. I went for yogurt and frozen berries, and tried out Silk Live! Yogurt.

The color was a little bit darker than I expected, but I figured that wouldn't change the taste. I gave it a good stir (to get rid of the liquid-y top) and added a few blueberries. Unfortunately, the taste was way off. It had a weird tangy aftertaste. Almost like Greek yogurt... but not quite. I'm not sure what was so off about it, but I was totally disappointed. I was glad I didn't waste a lot of blueberries mixed in, because I ended up throwing almost the whole bowl away. Very disappointing.

After throwing that away, I decided to have some protein banana "ice cream".

Into the food processor:
1 frozen banana, chopped
1 packet of stevia
1 scoop Jay Robb Chocolate Protein Powder
about 1/2 cup of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze

Approx Nutritionals: 250 calories, 25g protein

Blend and enjoy. This was so delicious that it made up for the less than stellar yogurt. Plus, the stats are pretty good!

I had that with a Van's Lite Frozen Waffle.

In my opinion, these are the best frozen waffles for the stats. At 70 calories per waffle, these are not only healthy, but also vegan! Yay! I had this smeared with a little Trader Joe's Almond Butter and it was amazing!

In my opinion, Trader Joe's has the best almond butter, but then again, I haven't tried them all!
