Pumped Up Vanilla Peanut Butter Dip!
Good morning Friday! I am so happy that I got to start today a little slower this morning. We stayed up a little later than a normal night after going to the movies with the kids. We did not end up seeing Back To The Future, due to them changing the schedule, so we saw Jurassic Park. Wow, that brought back so many memories of when Tony and I first met. Also, it totally scared the poo out of me. It's funny how much scarier it was on the big screen! The sounds actually shake you and well, the dinosaurs are HUGE! The kids loved getting treats during the movie too. We can't do that all the time, but it's fun to watch them enjoy milkshakes and popcorn while watching a movie!

Tony's sister and her family will be venturing here tomorrow to pick up my nephew and hang out here for a couple of days. Today will be a scrub the house because 3 stinky boys have taken over kind of day! I have roped off the room that they have been sleeping in so no one can enter other than the boys. I grew up with 4 girls in our family and I swear, we made messes, but I don't think we created a stink like the one boys can make. Hello Fabreze!

I'm also going to venture to the running store check out what shoes may be the best for me. I'm hoping they have magic shoes like Kristin wears! Speaking of Stuft Mama, she made a pumped up peanut butter goo concoction a month or so ago that reminded me of something I gave Tony when he was tracking his calories/protein intake. I made his for a sandwich with sliced banana...this stuff is knock your socks off good! My current addiction is having it over celery...

Pumped Up Vanilla Peanut Butter Dip
(1 small snack serving)

2 TBSP peanut flour (I get this one at iherb, you can use this code for $5 off)
2 TBSP vanilla protein powder (I used Life's Basics)
stevia to taste (depending on how sweet you want it)
1-3 TBSP water or almond milk (depending on how thick you want it)

Stir it all together and enjoy!

The cool crisp celery paired with the creamy slightly sweet peanut butter with a hint of vanilla...YUM!

I'm craving all watery vegetables lately. I think it's due to the horrible heat and air quality! I swear, I went to the store yesterday and I had sweat dripping from my ankles! Miserable!

What are the temps where you are? What foods/drinks do you crave in the heat?

    The dip sounds awesome---right up my alley!

    I agree---boys are stinky! My nephew's feet smell so bad sometimes. I just don't remember my sister and I ever having those issues!

    Boys are so stinky. I think they just don't care when they're dirty!
    I've been craving salads. And smoothies. I've had a smoothie almost every day this week. :)
    Enjoy your weekend!!

    LOL - gotta love those scrub-because-you-have-guests cleaning days! Hope you have a nice visit. I need to try that "dip" I love PB2 with hazelnut stevia so this just takes i up a notch.

    I have this for late night snack nearly every night now. I add some cinnamon and a bit of crushed cereal and eat it like cake batter. Peanut flour is life-changing. :)

    So many boys! I always wonder how moms with all men do it.

    Is that peanut flour lower in fat than PB too? I've always wondered if it is defatted like coconut flour or if you can simply rehydrate it to make regular PB

    Alisa - Yes! It is lower in fat! Honestly, I love the stuff and the one I linked to is the company that was branded as Trader Joe's when it was in their store. There are 16 grams of protein and 110 calories in a quarter of a cup. I've been on a crazy protein kick lately and this stuff is so great to have around. I think it's cheaper than PB2? Mixing it in with my chocolate protein powder makes for an amazing chocolate peanut butter pudding! I hardly ever eat regular peanut butter anymore since I really need more protein, not more fat in my diet. I rehydrate this with water or almond or coconut milk anytime I need peanut butter.

    I've made something similar like this, and I LOVE it! Peanut flour is also good mixed with vanilla syrup!!!

    I live with TWO stinky boys if you count Basil? ;) today was my bathroom cleaning and vacuum the WHOLE house day, so I know of what you speak.

    in the heat (we are FINALLY getting some real summer heat, like 90's WOOO) I always crave fresh and cool... salads, lots of water, fruit, veggies and smoothies.

    and pb dip... ;)
