Hina’s World: Strawberry Banana Orange Neon Vi-Shake

strawberry_banana_orange_neon_vi-shake

You are probably wondering how or why I came up with this recipe above and instructions below;     I had the Tropicana juice in my fridge and figured I may as well try it in my shake and see how it tastes; that was yesterday’s experiment, not bad at all, I’ll share the recipe of that later, however today it was ok, I need energy, I need my shake, I can definitely combine the two.  But, how about combining that juice too.  It was definitely delicious yesterday, it can definitely work.   As I was imagining how it would look like, down to the last core of what I would add and what not.

So, that’s exactly how it played out.  So yeah, I got my shake, yeah I got my energy with the Neon too.   PLUS:  It tastes amazing!  Amazing, truly fantastic, incredible.  You just have to try this and see for yourself.

Now I know there are other variations you could add instead of the below; and play around with it, you’ve got the vi shake mix in your hands, and hopefully you’ve tried the Neon too, if not then definitely message me and I’ll hook you up to getting some Neon in your fridge today.    But; I think if I do need more energy tomorrow or later on tonight; I’ll try adding the lemon Neuro or Raspberry Neuro, or even try adding the Vi-Defy, or Go or Pro to it and seeing how those plan out in the recipe like below.     Mind you, I’ve already experimented with the whole Neuro, Vi-Defy, Pro and Go in a shake and those were amazing too.  I’ve even added some supergreens into it because I needed that extra kick.

This is a definite must try once in a lifetime kind of moment, or if you really enjoy it like I do, something you can have everyday.   For those that do not want to use the Tropicana version, then I highly recommend using fresh strawberries or frozen ones, and real bananas, and real freshly squeezed orange juice for it instead and I’m sure it’ll taste even better.

Now; I do not know about you; but I’m going to go back and finish some things up, while enjoying this nice, cold, refreshing drink.

Vi Muffins

Vi_Muffins_DeliciousThere’s this story behind this, very interesting story!      Last week I saw the recipe for Vi-Donuts and as I checked out the ingredients, the vi- shake mix in it specifically I was impressed and totally prepped for making this soon.     I made sure we had all the ingredients even down to the mixed frozen berries that I would throw in.     And as the days went by, I kept saying not today, tomorrow.  Well, that day came this afternoon as I decided no time wasting and started preparing.

It was until I got to all the ingredients I realized 2 things.   1) No more frozen berries, that was used up this morning for my mixed berries shake.  2) no donut pan to make these in.  So I settled for a cupcake cake pop pan, and a muffin pan which still worked out really good as you can see above.

The ingredients are as follows;
Ingredients:

For the donuts:

1/2 cup flour (you can increase it to 1 cup for more donuts)
1/2 cup Vi Shape Meal Replacement shake mix
1/3 cup white sugar (I ended up substituting 1 Tbsp of brown sugar, 1 Tbsp of white sugar, and 2 scoops of vi shake mix.   Yes more shake mix, I felt the sugar it was asking was still too much for me.
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp cinnamon powder
1/4 tsp salt (I used Himalayan pink salt)
1/3 cup buttermilk ( I ended up using almond milk with the 1/2 tsp white vinegar)
1 egg beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp oil (I used Olive)
1/2 cup of fresh berries (I didn’t use any of this)
But for all the ingredients above, I increased it to get more batter and more donuts.   Especially for these hungry kids here all eagerly awaiting for it.  Which reminds me, after I finish typing this, I should let them know it’s ready as they are playing outside in this beautiful weather.    However I’ll let them continue playing while I finish this up and soak in how quiet it is.

For the frosting:
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips ( I used Velata’s milk chocolate meltables)
2 tsp low fat milk (I used 1 tbsp. veg shortening)
Preparation:
1. In a large bowl, whisk together the following; flour, shake mix, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
2.  In a small bowl, stir together the buttermilk, egg, vanilla, and oil.   Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir with a wooden spoon until fully blended and mixed in.  I used a whisk all the way through.
3.  Here I was suppose to add the berries and stir, but I didn’t  have it so I continued stirring with the whisk to make sure even the bottom didn’t have any flour remaining.
4.   I preheated the oven ahead of time to 350F- then greased the pan, and added the batter in by spoonful     I baked it for 10-15 minutes until it was a light brown color and all the way cooked.
5.  Removed from oven and cool in the pan, then transferred to a serving platter.
6.   This is where I melted the chocolate chips with the milk in a microwave for 25 seconds, mixed it again and then microwaved it for another 25 seconds.      At this point it was melted, and the donuts  were cool.   I just drizzled the chocolate over it, and served it.

As it sits there, I tried a couple and it was sure good, very delicious.       I see my kids playing outside with their friends and think should I call them inside?  Or should I let them remain out there until it’s time for them to come inside?    Hmmmmm.   I’ll stay here and type this, and let them stay outside until it’s time for them to come inside.        Enjoy!
