Almond Joy Shake (The good kind)

Hello everyone! Today is an awesome day and it’s day of gratitude towards the Lord. I’ve been able to eat raisin and chewy foods in 3 weeks after the surgery. I LOVE almond joy candy bars. Except for the part that they have tons of sugar in them and milk. (I am sort of sensitive to milk) so I have created a recipe where you have the same taste of an almond joy but has lots of protein and little sugar.


  • 1/2 almond milk (you could use coconut milk also)
  • 1/4 unsweetened coconut
  • 1 big handful of ice
  • 1 big chunk of a dark chocolate bar
  • 1/2 cup almonds
Get out your nice blender, that I’m sure everyone has and put in the the almonds and dark chocolate in and blend until fine. Use a butter knife if the almonds and chocolate stick to the blender. Then put in all the rest of the ingredients and blend until everything blended smooth. ENJOY!

Liquids and Soft Foods: Piña colada protein smoothie

Yesterday was January 18th today is January 19th and these two days have been some of the best days ever! I got my new laptop which is drum roll please oh never mind I got a a MacBook Pro. I got gum line surgery on Jan 16th and was in a little pain the next day. But I have been taking pain meds to slow down the pain just a wee bit. I will be eating soft foods and liquids for the next 2 months. I have been drinking cold soups, cold protein smoothies, and already I have been able to get eggs and pancakes down my throat. YEAH! Its has been a good life and God has helped me heal quicker. So for todays recipe I am going to share with you my take on piña colada.

Here is the list of ingredients you will need to make this recipe:

  • 1/2 can of pineapple chunks and all the juice
  • cottage cheese (2-3 spoonfuls)
  • 1 c of ice
  • protein powder (I use Vega Vanilla Almondilla) (1 spoonful full)
  • half a can of coconut milk
  • 1/2 half cup rice milk (My body doesn’t process cow milk very well)
To start, add in all the ingredient after another into a blender and blend for about 3-5 minutes. It’s as simple as that. Pour into cups and ENJOY! It makes about 4-6 servings depending how much a person wants!
Have an awesome day and adieu!
