Desserts,mainly chocolate, have always been my biggest weakness. If it weren’t for sweets I would be sporting the most incredible body right now.
I have been having way too many sweets lately…cookies, muffins, candy, etc. Needless to say, I started feeling gross and realized it was that time again to force myself to not have any desserts for two weeks. This is a huge deal for me. Refer to paragraph above, sweets are my weakness. I don’t believe in completely depriving yourself though. Deprivation typically leads to someone being worse off than before! Before starting the dreaded weeks, I knew I had to create some yummy alternatives so I wouldn’t drool watching York commercials.
My Cinnamon Chocolate Ice Cream…very yummy and easy to make. It almost tastes like the real deal to me!
1 C Almond Milk
1 Tsp Honey
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1/2 Tsp Vanilla
2 Tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa
10ish Cinnamon Almonds
1/2 Tbsp of Almond Butter
I just love cocoa!
Blend it all up..it’s quite noisy
Some other treats I have to ward off the sweets cravings…
- Red wine, of course! 🙂
- Frozen grapes
- Yogurt with almonds on top
- Whole wheat toast with PB and honey
- Oatmeal with some cocoa
