WORKOUT DETAILS

Hey POPsters!!

HAPPY MOOOOONNNDDAAYYY!!!!

New video just for you!!! It’s one of the hardest leg workouts I have ever done. Think Call Me Maybe Squats x8. Yeah. Pretty much.

Oh and yesterday one of my friends came over and we made froyo soft serve! It was definitely a success! Here’s the recipe.

INGREDIENTS (serves 3 small bowls or 2 medium sized bowls):

– 1 banana

– 1.5 cups 2% fat plain greek yogurt (the 365 brand from whole foods is so good)

– 2 TBS of cinnamon roll protein powder from MAXPRO brand (Max Muscle stores)

– 1/2 cup of plain coconut milk from Trader Joes

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Mash all and pur into ice cream machine
  2. Mix for about 15-20 min until it looks like froyo (so cool)
  3. Done!
  4. Eat!

NUTRITION FACTS for 1 serving of 3 small bowls or 1/3 of recipe:

180 cals, 3g fat, 16g carbs, 18g protein

I think I can do without the protein powder actually – seems to have added a ton of calories with little volume and not enough of a substantial taste because the banana def took over in flavoring.

Will try this again with other fruits and imgredients to see what happens. Either way though, it was delicious and I encourage you to try it. It was a success taste and texture wise. I will work on the nutrition bit later.

Hope you have a fab start to your week!!! Also, I’d love it if you could tweet @Lolojones the link to the video. I hope she sees it and gives it a try. That would be so cool! She’s our honorary Olympian POPster!!!

Also…I’m gonna start adding my personal workouts to the ends of my posts if you’re interested in seeing what I do at the gym:

  • This sounds so delicious – I’ve been just searching for a healthy frozen yoghurt recipe – and this seems to do the trick. Sadly I do not own an ice cream maker yet, so lets see how it will work without…

  • Sarah B. says:

    Ah, I’ve totally tried to make that soft serve before and failed! But, the recipe I used didn’t call for yogurt. I’ll have to give it another whirl!

    That was haarrdd but i did it!

  • Darny says:

    I love the workout, it kicked my butt! Hopefully I can walk tomorrow. Thanks Cassey! ♥

  • I was just looking at your typical workouts. Wowza! I find it interesting that you do weight lifting and running as opposed to pilates. How do you recommend incorporating pilates into this routine?

  • Doris says:

    LOVED IT! The workout was TOUGH but I found them easier than your abs challenges.. :)

    BTW – what happened to your facebook wall? Cannot see other posts but your own?

  • Anne Katrine says:

    Hi Cassey :)
    Love that you put out your personal workouts on the blog. I was wondering how long your breaks in between each 30 seconds sprint are?

  • Debbie says:

    Holy Crap that was NUTS but Awesome it burned so much!!!

  • Frances says:

    Pfew! That leg workout was killer. I had to switch to stepping lunges instead of jump lunges after the first set, I could not keep doing them! Probably didn’t help that I’d just finished lunch.
    Love the greek froyo… I make it a LOT at home (although never with protien powder), and to make the yogurt even creamier you can make “yogurt cheese” by draining the excess whey out using a coffee filter set in a strainer… of course, I usually add some liquid back in the form of whipping cream (I whip it first, and fold it into the yogurt.), I think it helps prevent the leftovers from freezing totally solid. I suggest trying lemon, peach, honey (just dump a container of honey greek yogurt into the ice cream freezer if you’re in a rush) and try plain yogurt sweetened with brown sugar and flavored with vanilla… it tastes like cheesecake!

  • I also think you’re cute :) This looks really hard, but I’m gonna try it tomorrow. You rock!!

  • Kim says:

    The legs challenge was killer, I can’t believe I did it! Thanks Cassey!

  • Shay says:
