    Serves 7 / Makes 14

     

    Ingredients
    1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
    1/4 cup plain low-fat Greek yogurt
    1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    2 scoops chocolate protein isolate
    3 Tbsp. coconut sugar (or sweetener of choice), divided
    1/4 cup PB2
    5 Tbsp. water
    Pinch of salt

    Instructions
    1. Mix together the almond milk, yogurt, cocoa powder, chocolate protein powder, 2 Tbsp. sugar, and a pinch of salt. In a separate bowl, combine the PB2, water, remaining tablespoon of sugar, and a dash of salt. Continue stirring until both mixtures are totally creamy and smooth.

    2. Prepare a mini muffin pan with liners, and spray with oil. For the first layer, spoon 1 tsp. of the chocolate mixture into each section. Then top it with 1 tsp. of the peanut butter mixture. Finish with an additional layer of chocolate.

    3. Freeze the mini muffin pan for a couple hours, until firm. It should be easy to peel off the liners.

  • WHAT IS 5-HTP? A quick guide to the many benefits of 5-HTP

    Here's the lowdown on exactly what 5-HTP is, what it stands for and the many affects it can have on your health. This supplement is especially beneficial to those who suffer from a lack of sleep, depression, anxiety, migraines and fibromyalgia.

    5-HTP, also known as 5-hydroxytryptamine or oxitriptan, is a naturally occurring amino acid that is produced in your body. It is a chemical by-product of L-tryptophan, which is a protein building block. 5-HTP works in the brain and central nervous system by creating serotonin.

    5-HTP Creates Serotonin
    Serotonin is a vital chemical hormone because it can affect and regulate appetite, sleep, sexual behavior, and pain sensation. Serotonin also plays a crucial role in your mood. Sometimes referred to as the “happy hormone”, studies have shown that those individuals who lack the production of serotonin will often struggle with health issues such as depression or anxiety. By taking a 5-HTP supplement you can help manage and regulate your body’s ability to create serotonin.

    How is 5-HTP Produced?
    The supplement 5-HTP is produced in two different ways.

    First, it is chemically manufactured by creating a synthetic version of the protein building block L-tryptophan. However, the most common way that 5-HTP is produced is by manufacturing it through the use of Griffonia Simplicifolia (GS). This is actually a plant that is native to West and Central Africa. GS is a woody climbing plant that grows to be about 3m tall and yields greenish flowers. Technically considered an herbal supplement, the seeds of GS are what are actually used in the production of 5-HTP.

    Benefits of 5-HTP
    5-HTP is used for various other things such as:
    Sleep aid
    Anti depressant
    Anti anxiety
    5-HTP has been proven to help normalize hormone levels that may have caused depression or anxiety. It also helps promote relaxation in order to help you sleep.

    While studies are still being conducted, 5-HTP is also said to help with body pain such as:

    Headaches
    Migraines
    Menstrual cramps
    Fibromyalgia
