Healthy Recipes

Here are the new healthy recipes I tried this month. :)
Baked Brown Sugar Chicken (I think I cooked mine on 375 or 400)
Healthy Mexican Sweet Potato Skins (Warning to the heat-sensitive: This was good but way too spicy for my tastebuds.)
Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies (These are healthier than a regular cookie because of using brown sugar instead of white and coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. I added unsweetened shredded coconut to mine. Warning: They are addictive.)
Strawberry Lemonade or Limeade (I made mine a limeade. So refreshing!)
Here's a recipe that I whipped together and eat frequently. Yummy stuff!
Oikos vanilla non-fat Greek yogurt
1 T. natural peanut butter (also great with 2 T. of Chocolate PB2)
1 T. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Also, I wanted to share my protein shake recipe with you all.  I make it all the time and it's SUPER good and healthy. I feel like I'm indulging big time when I make it but I'm not. Gotta love that! ;-D
1 frozen banana broken into three pieces (I always have a bag of frozen, ripe, peeled bananas in my freezer so I can pop one into to my smoothie anytime)
2-3 T. of either natural peanut butter, chocolate PB2, regular PB2 or natural almond butter
4 ice cubes
1 scoop of vanilla whey protein (sometimes I use hemp protein but it's an acquired taste ... I happen to really like it)
1 pack of Truvia
1-1/2 cups of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
