Here's where you can get creative.
This chilly treat is great as a healthy desert option, especially when you add extra cacao nibs on top and a few fresh berries to top it off.
If you'd like to have it as more of a smoothie bowl, meal option- then it's super yummy with granola (make you own granola!), fresh fruit, and coconut flakes as a topping.
The thing is, if you don't have a bunch of fancy toppings, the ice cream is really flavorful and delicious exactly as it is. Plus, it's a great way to chill out on a hot summer day.
This is according to our serving size for two people. We had plenty of left overs.
*we chose gluten free tortillas made out of black rice, which were super yummy, but also fell apart really easily. It helps to get LARGE wraps, to make sure the ingredients don't burst out of the sides and make too sticky for the foil.
-1 Can of black beans
*you can also use dried beans, too.
-1 Sweet potato
-1 Red bell pepper
-1 Yellow bell pepper
-1 Yellow onion
-1 Bag of Spinach
-1 Red onion
-1 Clove of garlic
-1 Can pickled jalapeños
-1 Jar sliced black olives
-Salt and peper
*I like coconut milk
*make sure to avoid canned milk/cream, or options with a lot of added sugar
-Whole Rolled Oats or Quinoa Flakes
*I like pumpkin seeds and shelled hemp seeds
*I used apricot for this one
*I used blueberries this time
*My choice was a mix of almond, cashew, peanut and hemp butter
-Start with a bottom layer of Chia Pudding, about 1/2 cup (or to your liking)
-Layer 1 - 2 tablespoons of nut butter on top of Chia Pudding
-Add 1/2 cup of Granola (or to your liking) above nut butter
-Top off with fresh fruits of your choice
-Option to add additional seeds, dried fruit, cacao nibs, and/or nuts
*I like coconut milk because it has a heartier consistency
*make sure to avoid canned milks, or options with a lot of added sugars and/or preservatives
*great way to spice it up (literally)
-Cacao powder to mix with milk
-Cacao nibs to add once done
-Fresh or dried fruit
-Granola (make your own!)
-Whole Rolled Oats
*make sure NOT to use steel cut and/or instant oats
*we used Quinoa Flakes instead of oats as a healthier option, but this is a bit pricier
*if you're not fussed about keeping it vegan, you can use honey instead, or a combo of both
- 3 Cups of Whole Rolled Oats (or Quinoa Flakes)
- 1/2 Cup of Maple Syrup
- 4 tablespoons Coconut Oil
-Preheat oven to 150 C (300 F)
-Use non-stick baking paper to ensure mixture doesn't get stuck to pan.
-Spread mixture THINLY onto baking tray to ensure it cooks all the way through.
-If you have small trays, you may need to use more than one.
-Pat firmly if you prefer chunky granola
-Bake for about 10 minutes
-It's tricky to know when the granola is done, because it won't fully harden until it cools.
-Even if it's still sticky/moist, but it cooked maple syrup/honey, then it's probably done.
-I usually bake for about 10 - 13 minutes only.
Naturally, you can eat as is. But, there are tons of options you can add this yummy mixture to, as well. Below are a few of my go-to dishes.
-Serve with coconut and/or nut milk as a cereal substitute
-Add on Smoothie bowls (for extra crunch!)
-Eat with Coconut yogurt
-Combine with Chia Pudding (make your own!)
-Include in a Breakfast Parfait (make your own!)
-Eat with fresh fruit
-Snack on it as it is!
