I love breakfast. And most days it is the meal that is most rushed. But lately I have been taking the time to really slow down and enjoy it. It’s often my quiet time of the day when I can peek at a magazine or a cookbook or two, or just sit and make my to-do list for the day. So, I wanted to share with you what I’ve been enjoying for breakfast almost every day now since organic berries are popping back up in the markets. I feel it really gets my day off to a great and healthy start.
Crocodile Crunch – I adapted this recipe from Alicia Silverstone’s The Kind Diet. The version from her book is here. It’s a great recipe to play with adding whatever fruits you like or have on hand. The recipe below is what I normally use. Makes 1 serving.
4 strawberries (hulled and sliced)
a handful of blueberries
1 banana sliced
a sprinkling of coconut flakes
a sprinkling of Grape Nuts or Kashi’s 7 Whole Grain Nuggets
For the syrup –
1 teaspoon spirulina
1 tablespoon non-dairy milk (coconut, rice, hemp, soy)
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 teaspoon almond butter
Whisk all together and pour over bowl of fruit. Enjoy! 🙂
Yes, it’s green, really green. But so tasty! I hope you enjoy as much as I do! Have a great week!
