The warm air approaches quickly and it is time to get ready for summer. I made a watermelon salad the other night and had leftover watermelon. I decided to throw some in my smoothie the next morning and oh my goodness — DELICIOUS! Here is what I did.
- 1 – 2 cups diced watermelon
- 2 tbsp fage plain yogurt
- 4 drops liquid stevia (organic)
- 1/2 avocado
- dash of cinnamon
- 2 scoops USANA vanilla protein powder
- 1 cup coconut water or coconut milk (if you want a creamer texture)
- 1 cup ice
- 1 tbsp local honey (optional)
Blend on high until its a smooth constancy and indulge.
I do not eat waffles very often any more, but when I do I treat myself to the best (in a healthy kind of way). After allot of searching and testing, I found this next recipe on the web and had to share —- again DELICIOUS (no need to recreate)!
Paleo Chocolate Waffles
1 cup applesauce
4 tbsp coconut flour
1 cup Superfine Blanched Almond Flour
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp sea salt
½ tsp vanilla
4 tbsp cocao powder
¼ cup dark chocolate chips (organic and no added sugar)
2 tbsp of coconut oil
¼ cup of dark chocolate chips (I personnaly added a few drops of liquid organic stevia to the chocolate sauce)
Combine all the ingredients for the waffles in a large mixing bowl and blend until well combined.
Turn on your waffle maker to high
Pour ¾ cup into your waffle maker and cook for 4 – 5 minutes. Remove and Repeat.
For the Chocolate Sauce place the coconut oil and dark chocolate chips in a small sauce pan and on low and melt the chocolate. Whisk to combine and pour over the waffles. Can top with shredded coconut and fresh strawberries if you like.
