Cheerio Sizzlers! I am leaving day.after.tomorrow. get. excited. As for me, I've been busy as a fox in a henhouse trying to get everything ready for my departure. However, I am stopping to take a breather and share some nomtastic recipes with you.
As summer comes to an end (kind of but we all know in Houston it's going to stay hot till November) people start to get tired, worn out and weary from the heat. That's why it's important to feed yourself healthy #nomz to keep you up and running.
Recipe Número Uno- VEGAN BERRY BANANA SORBET
So the heats got you hotter'n a hen in a wool basket; before you stick your head in the freezer, stick your hand in and grab some of this here sorbet. It's so easy to make and quite healthy.
WHAT YOU NEED:
-1-2 Bananas. I change my opinion on whether or not I like bananas pretty much every full moon or so. Use 1 if you aren't feeling banana-ish, use 2 if you're super excited.
-3 cups of your berries of choice. You can use frozen berries, but I used fresh cherries, blueberries and strawberries.
- 1 can of coconut milk. Not coconut water, ya hear?
- I added a dash of rose water because I was feeling adventurous but you can skip this. You can also add cinnamon, vanilla extract, or whatever little add in you choose.
WHAT YOU DO:
-Put everything listed above in the blender. It should be pretty thick. If necessary, add a little more coconut milk (I keep 2 cans handy just in case I get too excited and add too many berries.)
-Pour it into a container.
-YOU ARE DONE.
-Give yourself a hug. Put it in the freezer. Check on it. Check on it again. Make sure your freezer is frozen. Ok, finally. Dig in.
Easy as pie. Except it's sorbet.
Recipe Deux- POWER MUFFINS
I love muffins. But I don't appreciate a muffin top. So, I decided to make these little treats to eat for breakfast, or for dinner if I don't feel much like eating.
WHAT YOU NEED:
This recipe makes 12 muffies.
- 2 cups of dry oats
-2 scoops of vanilla protein powder. (I went to the store and just bought a little pouch of Source of Life energy powder. In my opinion it tastes great and has extra nutrients that keep you bouncy).
-4 egg whites (I was naughty and used the whole egg. I'm not into wasting half of the egg)
-1 tsp baking soda
-1 tb vanilla extract
-1 tsp cinnamon
-Optional: I added some fresh halved cherries, but you can add nuts, raisins or whatever else your little heart desires.
WHAT YOU DO:
-Pre-heat oven to 350
-Mix all your stuff in a bowl
-Divide mixture into your muffin pan
-Bake for 12-15 minutes.
-Muffin miracles. You're done. Hug yourself again because you made some tasty stuff.
And there you have it folks. Tasty, healthy and EASY.
Tomorrow I'll be posting another recipe and some restaurant recs. Peace out for now!
