Peanut Butter & Jell-O Yogurt Bowl {Macro Friendly Mondays #1}

 

When I first started weight training and tracking macros about 7-8 years ago, one of my absolute favorite desserts was Greek yogurt with sugar free black cherry Jell-O! I loved it because it was super #MacroFriendly and filled me up with the volume. @lorifitlife and @_littlefitone have been posting about their Jell-O bowls recently on Instagram and I’m like, why have I forgotten about these!? My favorite addition is PB 2 powdered peanut butter. Swirl it in the yogurt, then get a bite with the Jell-O. It’s like a PB&J!🥜

My two favorite yogurts to use in this bowl are Light & Fit toasted coconut Greek and Siggi’s vanilla. Well technically Siggi’s is skyr, not yogurt, but it is very similar in taste, texture, and macros. Both are loaded with protein. I love the coconut light and fit, but if you want to avoid artificial sweeteners, go for the Siggi’s.

My absolute favorite instant Jell-O flavor is the back 🍒 and I always make it following the speed set instructions *BUT* this is KEY: use 6oz boiling water and cold water / ice to 8oz NOT 10oz. Better flavor and better texture! If you want an all natural Jell-O / no artificial additives, I have a recipe here that uses Vital Proteins gelatin and fruit. It works with pretty much any frozen fruit, and fresh fruit would work as well!
