I’m on Day 3 of my no carbs, no dairy, no added sweeteners, no processed grains diet. Let me just say, it doesn’t take long to get tired of eating eggs every morning for breakfast. I had to create something on the sweeter side that my diet allows so I can stay sane. I think I found my fix!
Before this diet, my usual go-to breakfast was always a whole wheat English muffin with butter and jelly or cereal with vanilla-flavored almond milk. It’s easier to get up and pour yourself a bowl of cereal than prep and cook an omelet every morning. I’m the person who has a sweet tooth from the time I wake up in the morning to the time I go to bed, so I needed to create a sweet breakfast my new diet allows.
This is so easy and really helps my sweet cravings. Since oatmeal is on my No Foods List, I had to recreate a new kind of “porridge” that won’t sabotage my healthy eating plan. You can pretty much throw whatever fruit or nuts you prefer in your breakfast “porridge.”
1/2 c. plain almond milk
1 very ripe banana, mashed
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1 Tbsp cashew butter
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 c. blueberries
1/3 c. pink lemonade blueberries
1/3 c. slivered almonds, walnuts
1 Tbsp dried cranberries
Sprinkle pumpkin seeds
Sprinkle shredded coconut
Using a wooden spoon or food processor, combine the almond milk, ripe banana, chia seeds, ground cinnamon, and cashew butter until well combined. Give the chia seeds sometime to bloom and thicken the almond milk mixture. Pour the mixture into a bowl and top with the blueberries, shredded coconut, slivered almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, and dried cranberries.
Voila! It literally tastes like delicious, creamy yogurt. Super easy and super yummy.
