Dessert was cooking for hours...

Here's a quick Saturday recap before we start our whirlwind Sunday!

9:30:  Hot Lemon Water

10:00am:  "Biggest Loser" Protein Pancakes with peanut butter & syrup

I must have not used enough egg whites because I only managed to squeak out 2 'cakes this morning, but they were really dense and even better then the 3 skinny minisJ 

11:15am-12:30pm:  Power yoga class
My Saturday morning teacher weighs about 85 pounds and she will KICK. YOUR. ASS. with a multitude of chatarungas, 1-armed downward dogs and hero to bridge poses.  NOT for the faint of heartJ

1:30pm:  Lunch- Toasted Vanilla Greek Oikos Yogurt with a sprinkle of Flax seed & toasted almonds & Coffee with creamer
This wasn't a low-fat flavor (had 4.5 grams), but TOASTED COCONUT was just screaming out to me from the shelves.  And, quite frankly, those 4 grams of fat made this baby taste like a creamy & luscious DESSERTJ  Between that & the flax and almonds, this kept me so full!

4:30pm:  Snack-Apple

6:30pm:  Dinner-  Wasn't the 'original plan,' but after loosing track of time moving my Mom into her new home (!!!!), I had 2 slices of pizza in between lining kitchen shelvesJ 

Dinner may have been last minute, but in this house:  Dessert had been simmering for HOURS!!!!J  Into my small slow cooker, I whisked:
  • 1/2 can fat free condensed milk
  • 1 can light coconut milk
  • 2 oz. chopped dark chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Drop of coconut & vanilla extract

And let this sit on low for 5 hours!  The last hour I set the slow cooker to 'keep warm' and that allows the hot chocolate to REALLLLLY thicken  up

Even with the 'lighter' ingredients, this hot chocolate was sooooo rich & almost pudding-like.  It's the closest you will ever get to drinking a chocolate barJ  Topped with a little whipped cream & toasted coconut and we were whisked off into a blissful chocolate comaJ   

We sipped while finally catching up to the rest of the planet and finally got to see Ted.  HIL-FREAKING-LARIOUS!  Scott almost chocked laughing 3 timesJ 

Today we have some running around to do, BUT have a gooooooooood lunch trip planned.  Can't wait to tell you about it tomorrow!  Have a great Sunday!
