Raspberry Jam

Raspberryjam6.jpg

Summer is my favorite time of the year. Mostly because I genuinely love the sunshine and the heat, but also because my berry plants come alive!! When we moved into our house three years ago, we had no idea there were any berry plants on the property. Then when summer hit I had strawberries and raspberries coming out of my ears! This season the plants have nearly doubled, and I have more raspberries than I know what to do with. 

I've always been a huge fan of jam. But if you look at the nutrition labels at the store there is SO much sugar I could just never justify it! This jam is the perfect solution. It only has three ingredients, and it's just as sweet as anything off the shelf! 

This jam comes together SO quickly it almost blew my mind. Set aside 20 minutes to whip this up and you're golden! 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 280g fresh raspberries (this can be replaced with any kind of berry, the nutrition will just change slightly depending on what you use!)
  • 2 C Splenda/Sucralose
  • 2T lemon juice

DIRECTIONS:

  • Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Take down to a simmer and stir occasionally for 10 minutes. 
  • Transfer into heat safe jar and keep in the fridge! (these also make super cute gifts for friends, family or neighbors! Try putting it in a mason jar with a cute plaid ribbon!)

XL Smoothie Bowl

IMG_4240.JPG

I think the hardest thing for me about dieting...

 in the past was portion control. I felt so restricted and felt like my portion sizes were the size of a quarter. Granted, the flexibility is something I genuinely love about macros, and its allowed me to explore different portion sizes with all my numbers. 

So, I introduce to you, the XL Smoothie Bowl! This thing is a carb monster, but in the very best way. I picked up a few Jamba frozen fruit packets at Smiths a few days ago and have been dying to try them out. I added vanilla greek yogurt to mine to up the protein, but if you have vanilla protein powder on hand that would work great, too!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 Jamba Strawberry Wild Smoothie Pack
  • 1 Light and Fit Greek Vanilla Yogurt Container
  • 105G banana, divided
  • 50g Strawberries
  • 45g Homemade Cinnamon Granola
  • water

DIRECTIONS

  • Throw your smoothie pack, half your banana and yogurt in the blender. Add water until desired consistency is reached.

  • Pour into a bowl and top with remaining fruit and granola.
