It’s been a tough couple of weeks in these neck of the woods but let’s celebrate something light hearted today- It’s Niki’s birthday! As many of you know, Niki is my fourth sister. First there was Kim, then there was Kourtney and then there was
I thought today, besides sharing a stereotypical recipe featuring sprinkles (because sprinkles = birthdays in blog land), I’d also embarrass Niki.
I’ll never forget the time when you were misbehaving and mum threatened to feed you chilli. She went to grab the chilli paste and you were squirming and crying and making a fuss. I came to your defence and what happened? Mum chased ME with the chilli and made me eat it.
I’ll never forget the time when our neighbours gifted you the video of ‘Lady Lovely Locks.’ You watched on at least 12 times a day for 6 months straight.
I’ll never forget the time we went to Iran when you were 5 years old and you were so antisocial, you refused to eat meals with the whole family. Up until the very last day, you’d demand your meals to be eaten in the family room. It’s probably where your Kardashian trait came into the picture.
I’m sorry when I was 10, I convinced you that Pokemon were real and that I had a ‘Pikachu’ who was invincible and caused thunderstorms.
I’m sorry I once hid your Furby for an entire day. I just could not deal with it whinging. I’m sorry for hiding it again the next day because it woke me up at 3am.
I’m sorry I restarted the Simpsons computer game when you were to close to completing it. I was just jealous that I couldn’t get past the third stage.
I can’t believe you thought I was dumb enough to believe you weren’t speaking to boys in the middle of the night. When I came into your room to catch you, your phone was shining next to your ear. You also were smirking. No one smirks like a Cheshire cat in their sleep.
I can’t believe that one time you tried to convince me you were adopted. You didn’t need to convince me. It’s probably true.
I can’t believe you like tidying up and reorganising your room when you’re bored. Why couldn’t you wash dishes, mow the lawn or vacuum instead?
In honour of your birthday, I have a recipe which you’d probably not eat. The sprinkles aren’t gold plated and this wouldn’t be served to you on a silver platter. You won’t be fanned by one of NBA’s greatest and North will only be a direction for you. However, there are sprinkles, it’s delicious and I like it. It’s not ALL about you,
So here we have Healthy Cake Batter dip for one.
This healthy cake batter dip for one tastes exactly like cake batter in terms of taste, texture and deliciousness. Unlike traditional cake batter, this healthy version is packed full of the good stuff without sacrificing on taste and only takes five minutes to whip up! It’s creamy, thick and eating it every day is like celebrating your birthday every day. It’s packed full of protein, thanks to the protein powder used in the batter. It’s also got a healthy dose of those healthy fats and fiber so pretty much, yes. You may call this ‘breakfast.’ Naturally gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free, there is also an option for my paleo friends out there.
I often get questions regarding which protein powder to use. I trialled this using my main three staples-My favorite paleo protein powder, my favorite vegan protein powder and my favorite casein protein powder. I don’t recommend using whey protein as my experiences with it have turned my recipes into pancakes….When my intention was a waffle/cake or ball gown.
Make this healthy cake batter dip for one and toast Niki as you do.
Just kidding, unless your name is Kanye.
- 1 small-medium overripe banana, mashed
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder of choice (I tried a paleo blend, a vegan blend and a casein blend)*
- 1-2 T granulated sweetener of choice**
- 1 T oat flour (sub for coconut flour for paleo option)
- 1 T gluten free cake flour (omit for paleo version)
- Pinch sea salt
- 2 T nut butter of choice (I used almond butter)
- 1 T pure maple syrup (can sub for another sticky sweetener)
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- Dairy free milk***
- Sprinkles (optional)
- In a mixing bowl, combine your mashed banana with the protein powder, flours, granulated sweetener of choice, sea salt, sprinkles and mix well.
- In a microwave safe bowl or stovetop, melt your nut butter with maple syrup until combined. Stir in the vanilla extract and pour into the dry mixture and mix well until fully combined. If batter is still too crumbly, using a tablespoon, add dairy free milk until a very firm batter is formed. If batter is too thin, add a dash more flour.
- Transfer to a bowl and top with more sprinkles and enjoy!
- * Protein powder is optional but if you do omit, add an extra tablespoon or two of flour.
- ** I didn't use any sweetener as my protein powder was sweetened and my banana was sweet enough.
- If you freeze the recipe, it's best to thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
If you have siblings, were you a nice one or a…. nice one?
