Roasted Strawberry Protein Shake~ YUM

     With Spring in full swing, I love having all our wonderful fruit and produce.  What better way to celebrate our warming temperatures than to play with roasting our fruit to bring out there natural sweetness !!!  Roasting Strawberries with a hint of stevia was a perfect start to a wonderfully healthy shake !!!  Try roasting with your favorite fruit and see what it "produces"  ;)

     Roast diced strawberries in 425 oven for 12-15 minutes on parchment lined pan after tossing with 1 packet of stevia.  When cooled, blend in Magic Bullet with cottage cheese, milk, flax seed, cinnamon and vanilla.  Enjoy all this flavor and nutrition for 290 calories, 16 gms carbs, 30 gms protein, and 9 gms fiber~ this is a nutritional powerhouse folks  ;)
