I can’t believe it’s the beginning of a new week. Time is flying by so fast!
I spent my usual Sunday off in a 6 hour workshop for school. It was amazing. Learning by doing is something that works for me – I wish that there was a stronger element of that in learning environments so that people like me could at least “get their hands dirty”.
It was nutrition school related, but it didn’t feel like work. It felt like joy. That’s what it means to be learning about something you love.
And by the way, hello and welcome to all my new followers – I love interacting with all of you so feel free to leave a comment or follow me on Instagram!
Day 13 – Coconut Chai
This is so pleasing to the eyes I want to frame it and put it on my wall (this is something I am seriously considering). It’s also pleasing to other senses too, if you enjoy chai, which I so very much do.
- 2 Large Frozen Bananas
- ~1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1 bag chai tea
- Dash of cinnamon
Directions : place tea bag in coconut milk and allow to sit overnight. I like to use the whole can with a few bags of chai mixed in so that I have extra, in case I want to use it for something else or drink it on its own. If you don’t have the time, simply warm the coconut milk so that the tea will diffuse faster. Just cool it before you use it!
Once mixture is complete and you are ready, blend it with coconut milk, bananas, and a dash of cinnamon.
Day 14 – Super Berry
Dive in and supercharge yourself. See? I could be in advertising. But I don’t think I need to talk you into enjoying this Nicecream anyways as it has tons of benefits. It gives you the opportunity to sneak in your greens, and the toppings add a hit of proteins and fat. The recipe is simple but it covers your macros and your micros!
- 1 large frozen banana
- 1 cup frozen berries
- ~1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 tbsp greens blend*
- Walnuts & hemp seeds for topping
* I used Novaforme Cytogreens
Directions: Blend bananas, berries, greens, and almond milk. Top with walnuts and hemp seeds.
Day 15 – Apple Crumble
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the best when it comes to desserts. That’s why I’ve always enjoyed baked apples; they are so fool proof. Apple crumble is a great one for newbie dessert makers too, especially this time of year when the leaves start to fall.
Although the Nicecream itself is cold, this one felt like a warm hug.
- 2 large frozen bananas
- ~ 1/2 cup almond milk
- One small Apple
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp coconut sugar
- 2 tbsp granola
Directions: Slice the apple and sweat on the stovetop in the coconut oil on medium heat until soft. Add sugar and a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon or to taste. Remove from heat.
Blend bananas, almond milk, and remaining 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. Scoop into a bowl and top with warm apple slices and granola.
I love autumn flavours – nutmeg, pumpkin, and anything warm and earthy. What’s your favourite autumn treat?
Thanks for reading!
