Breakfast Bomb

Not every random breakfast concoction I make is a success. Today’s breakfast would be a prime example of a breakfast bomb.

It wasn’t so awful that I didn’t eat the entire thing, but it wasn’t amazingly delicious either.

I started with cottage cheese and applesauce.

Cheesy Apple

I blended the two together with lots of cinnamon.

The flavor was great, but the texture was all wrong. I think it would have tasted ten times better if I would have skipped the blending.

I topped the cinnamon apple cottage cheese with Kay’s Naturals apple cinnamon protein cereal.

The tasty little o’s definitely saved this breakfast mess.

While I was quite disappointed with my sorry attempt at a innovative breakfast, my mood remained positive because I was greeted with a wonderful little surprise when I opened the fridge to pack my meals to take to work today.

Who Doesnt' Love a Love Note?

I have one heck of a fiance! 🙂

Soft Serve Bananas

I am not the proud owner of a food processor. I want one, but haven’t decided which one I should purchase (recommendations welcome!) and my mom let me borrow hers until Thanksgiving.

Using my loaner food processor, I was anxious to make the soft serve bananas Gena blogged about, saying they would “change your life.”

Frozen Bananas

I started by placing chunks of two frozen bananas in the food processor.

I let them blend away for several minutes until the bananas were creamy and totally blended.

Soft Serve Bananas

I cannot believe how delicious this is! It honestly tastes like creamy banana gelato. I was so impressed.

When I brought Ryan his bowl he loved it and asked what was in it. He was shocked when I said that bananas were the only ingredient. If you haven’t already, you must try this!

What is your favorite healthy dessert?

  1. Can’t beat Gena’s recipes! 🙂

  2. I’ve certainly had my own kitchen bombs before. 🙂

  3. I should try this banana recipe, I have a baggie of frozen bananas in the fridge.

    I am not a big dessert person but I love apples and caramel dip.

  4. Hey Julie,

    I own a cuisinart food processor and I am not impressed. I’m probably going to buy Bobby Flay’s food processor from Khol’s because I really like the idea of the built in blade storage. Last year around Thanksgiving I was searching through the back of my cabinet searching for one of the blade attachments and it found me before I found it 😦

    Hope that helps, love the blog!

  5. I am dying to try this banana soft serve! I have also seen this recipie made with cottage cheese to add protien, and also with vanilla whey. WOOT!!!
    I have a food processor, I dont know what’s taking me so long to do just it already!

    Mine is just a hamilton beach – 6 cup I think…maybe 8. not huge, but not teeny either. All it has to do is chop, it wasn’t expenisve ($25) and it gets-r-done!

  6. You’ve got a great man. Thats so sweet.

  7. Banana soft serve.. wow, so simple and healthy!!

  8. I got a really nice Kitchen Aid food proccessor for Christmas last year. I love it. I’ve only used one blade, but it comes w/a whole lot. There are endless possibilities.

    • Oh thanks for the link. That’s so creative!

    • Yum! I’m totally trying this today. I just actually bought a mini (holds four cups of ingredients) food processor yesterday and was so excited to use it but didn’t have many ingredients, so I decided to slice up an apple and throw in a scoop of peanut butter and MAN! It was so good! I just scooped it right out of the processor and ate it. A little healthier than scooping each apple slice the in the PB jar (which is what I normally do 😉 )
