#FitnessFriday: Cheat Clean GrassHopper Recipe

Chocolate and mint go together like Taylor and Ed, but unfortunately the latter is far more healthy than the first.


Thankfully, Questbars are a thing one of my favourite things tbh) and they are really tasty, gluten, and sugar free! You can use them as a snack on their own or create your own recipes with them, just like Ripped Recipes did. The health blog put together a healthy version of the Girl Scout fav cookie, here is how to make your own:
