BSN Desserts recipes

A few weeks ago, I bought some new protein because, well, I was out and needed some. I grew kind of tired of the Nectar Latte Cappuccino so I ordered some BSN Dessert in Fresh Cinnamon Roll and Chocolate Coconut Candy. Both are good on their own, made per manufacturers instructions. For myself, I prefer either a thin shake or an icy dream of a shake so I manipulated the recipe.

    The Almond Joy

8oz Almond milk
1 scoop (35g) Chocolate coconut candy BSN powder
app. 5 ice cubes
Blend everything together really well and enjoy


6oz FF Skim milk
1 scoop (35g) Fresh cinnamon roll BSN powder
App. 5 ice cubes
Blend it all together well and enjoy.

A recipe! It’s goooood.

A few years ago, before getting pregnant with Nugget, I tried another diet to lose weight. I managed to lose 3 pounds over 2 weeks before I gave up because I was not convinced that it was a healthy diet. I won’t mention which diet this was, but I will say that it is very healthy on a beach somewhere down South.

Ahem! Cough, cough!

Anyway, I still have a book with recipes because I love me some cook books and many of the recipes are fairly healthy. I was looking for something sweet and high protein today to follow some pureed soup. I found one called Ricotta Lemon Zest Creme or something close to that. (I don’t feel like gettin’ up to look right now, k? Sorry.) Want the recipe? I promise it is better than it sounds. Also? I modified it a bit to taste and so it would fit into my tiny VSG tummy and.

2oz Ricotta cheese
1/4 tsp. lemon juice or 1/8 tsp. lemon zest
1/8 tsp. vanilla extract
1 pkg sweetener

Mmmmm… but with 1/2 cup soup, I couldn’t eat it all. I’m so disappointed, yet thrilled that I can no longer stuff food into myself just because it tastes good. For the first time in my LIFE, my stomach tells me when it’s full before consuming a horrendous amount of food.

VSG is amazing!
