Stuffed toast

Lately I've been seeing a bunch of pictures on Instagram of French toast, stuffed French toast, banana bread, cinnamon bread...mmmm. Where was I? Toast! I finally caved in and got some bread, and after a failed attempt at French toast this morning I settled on stuffed toast. It's not French but its still delicious, and takes a whole 3 minutes to make. 

-2 slices Ezekiel cinnamon raisin bread 
-1/8 cup frozen blueberries
-1/8 cup frozen strawberries 
-1/8 cup coconut milk
-Maple syrup

1. Put bread in toaster. 
2. Blend berries and coconut milk in vitamix.
3. Top a slice of toast with 3/4 of blended fruit and maple syrup. Top second slice with remaining blended fruit, maple syrup, and frozen berries. 

Get it in your mouth!

Plum ice cream

My stepbrother brought over some deliciously ripe plums last week, and since I wasn't in the mood for them, I chopped them up and threw them in the freezer. This made a great ice cream that took a whole 60 seconds to make. 

-1 cup frozen plums
-2 frozen ripe bananas
-1/4 cup coconut milk

1. Chop frozen bananas and add all ingredients in vitamix or food processor and blend till smooth. 
2. Scoop in bowl and freeze for several hours for a firmer texture. 

Enjoy it in your mouth!

Half raw tacos

So I originally made this salad and for some reason it just wasn't hitting the spot. Throw in some corn tortillas and bam! taco time! Goes really well with some limes tossed in sparkling water. Because I made this as a salad, measurements are approximate.

-1/2 head cauliflower 
-2 cup cooked mushrooms
-1 diced avocado 
-1 cup diced tomatoes
-1 cup chopped celery
-6 corn tortillas
-2 tablespoons lime juice
-salt, pepper, garlic powder, cayenne pepper

1. Pulse in food processor (or blend in vitamix) cauliflower till rice size pieces form. 
2. Pulse in food processor (or blend in vitamix) mushroom till ground. 
3. Mix all ingredients together and season to taste.

4. Heat up tortillas in microwave. 
5. Fill tortillas, plate and serve with limes. 

Remember to chew in your mouth!

Neapolitan ice cream

This is my new favorite addiction that I've just been devouring, covering my face in chocolate. Sorry I'm not sorry. Growing up as a kid this was the ice cream I usually had in my freezer, and now it's just so much better for me.

-4 frozen bananas 
-1/2 cup frozen strawberries 
-1/4 cup cocoa powder
-2 packets stevia
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Bend 1.5 bananas with vanilla till smooth. Pour in bowl.

2. Blend 1 banana and 1/2 cup strawberries. Layer over vanilla. 
3. Blend cocoa, stevia, and 1.5 bananas. Layer over strawberry. 
4. Freeze for at least two hours till firm. 

Nom nom in your mouth!

Ranch-ish dip

Everyone loves ranch dressing. And it's completely normal to slather in on everything from veggies to pizza. But actual ranch dressing isn't healthy at all, so I made this version of it. I also roasted some broccoli to dip.

-1 package silken tofu 12 oz. 
-Juice of 2 small limes
-Chives (green onions)
-Black pepper
-Creole seasoning

1. Strain tofu through a cheesecloth. 
2. Add in all ingredients, season to taste.  
3. Blend.
