Do you ever crave waffles drizzled with syrup, cheeseburgers with all the fixings or red velvet cake? Maybe a better question is “who doesn’t?” Katie at Dashing Dish has a knack for taking calorie-packed recipes and making guilt-free versions that taste just as decadent, which is why she’s landed on our bookmarked reading list! Here’s what keeps her moving and motivated.
My favorite way to work out: A combination of weight training and interval/HIIT (high intensity interval training).
5 things I can’t live without:
- My husband
- My family and friends
- My Pomeranian Zoey
- My Bible
- My Nike tennis shoes
I’m happiest when I’m: In my pajamas at night cuddled up with my husband watching movies!
My fave fit snack: One of my protein shake or protein muffin recipes!
My gym bag must-have: My iPhone (which has a fully loaded iTunes workout playlist) with my armband and headphones.
Of course we had to ask Katie to share one of her favorite recipes! Click below for her 187-calorie cake batter shake—a much lighter take on the treat that can sometimes offer a full day’s worth of calories.
Cake Batter Protein Shake
- ½ cup lowfat cottage cheese
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (like Designer Whey protein powder)
- 3-5 drops almond extract or butter extract
- 1 tablespoon sugar-free vanilla instant pudding mix OR 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3-5 Stevia packets (or sweetener of choice to taste)
- ½-1 cup water
- 5-10 ice cubes
- Optional: Sprinkles for topping!
Put everything into a blender and blend, adding as much water and ice until your desired, creamy consistency is reached. Top with sprinkles if desired, and enjoy!
