Raw Blueberry Macadamia Nut Pudding

From Food.com

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh blueberries (or 2 (10 ounce) packages frozen)
  • 2 cups sliced banana
  • 1/2 cup medjool dates or other soft dates
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 cup macadamia nuts, raw cashews or raw nut butter

Directions:

Blend all of the ingredients together on high speed for at least 30 seconds or until a thick, creamy consistency is reached. If you don’t have a high-speed blender and it is taking a while to get the consistency you want, you may wish to take a little break in between blending sessions so that the mixture doesn’t get too hot.

Chill in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours or until firm. Enjoy topped with a few fresh berries!

Banana Bread in a Bowl

From Chocolate-Covered Katie

Ingredients

 

1 banana (I use a frozen one, but you don’t have to)
1-2 tablespoons walnuts (optional)
1 cup milk of choice
1 cup flake cereal, such as Arrowhead Mills’ spelt flakes (You can use a gluten-free cereal)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions

Put all the ingredients into a blender, and blend. Now eat! This gets thicker, the longer it sits.

Oh, and cinnamon or chocolate chips make nice additions. But then again, chocolate chips make a nice addition to anything!

Strawberry-Banana Oatmeal

From The Oatmeal Artist

Ingredients

1/2 cup regular rolled oats
1 cup liquid (water and/or milk of choice)
1 ripe or overripe banana
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
fresh strawberries
 
Directions
  1. Bring 1 cup liquid (I use an equal mixture of almond milk and water) to a boil, add 1/2 cup regular rolled oats, and reduce heat to medium. I also add a spoonful of milled flax at the same time as my oats.
  2. Mash up the banana and add to the oatmeal. Stir.  (You could also mash half and slice the other half as a topping, if your banana isn’t too ripe!)
  3. Once more of the liquid has dissolved, add 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, a tiny pinch of salt, and 1/8 tsp of cinnamon. Stir.
  4. If you’d like to add any additional ingredients (coconut oil, raisins, sunflower seeds), do so now.
  5. When you’re pleased with the consistency of the oatmeal, transfer to a bowl. Top with 4-6 diced strawberries and serve with another splash of your milk of choice and any additional toppings (shredded coconut, nuts, etc.).

    • 1/8 to 1/4 tsp cinnamon
    • scant 1/16th tsp salt

Elvis’s Oatmeal

From The Oatmeal Artist

Ingredients

1/2 cup regular rolled oats
1 cup liquid (water and/or milk of choice)
1 very ripe banana
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 or 2 tbsp peanut butter
pinch of salt
honey
Directions
  1. Bring 1 cup liquid (I use an equal mixture of almond milk and water) to a boil, add 1/2 cup regular rolled oats, and reduce heat to medium. (If you’d like to add flax or chia seeds, do so now.)
  2. Mash up HALF the banana and add to the oatmeal. Stir.
  3. Once more of the liquid has dissolved, add 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, a tiny pinch of salt, and 1/8 tsp cinnamon. Stir.
  4. Slice the remaining half of the banana into the oatmeal and swirl in the peanut butter (you can either stir it in completely or allow it to be in “clumps” like I do). If you’d like to add any extra ingredients (coconut oil, dried fruit, nuts, sunflower seeds), do so now.
  5. When you’re pleased with the consistency of the oatmeal, transfer to a bowl. Serve with another splash of your milk of choice and drizzle generously with honey. You could also top with nuts…or bacon.

Nutty ‘Nana Berry Oatmeal

From The Oatmeal Artist

Ingredients

1/2 cup regular rolled oats
1 cup liquid (water and/or milk of choice)
1/2 a ripe banana
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1-2 tbsp nut butter
a couple large handfuls of fresh berries
pinch of salt
 
Directions
  1. Bring 1 cup liquid (I use an equal mixture of almond milk and water) to a boil, add 1/2 cup regular rolled oats, and reduce heat to medium. (If you’d like to add flax or chia seeds, do so now.)
  2. Mash up banana and add to the oatmeal. Stir.  
  3. Once more of the liquid has dissolved, add vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Stir.
  4. If you’d like to add any extra ingredients (coconut oil, dried fruit, nuts, sunflower seeds), do so now.
  5. When you’re pleased with the consistency of the oatmeal, add the nut butter in small globs, dropping them various spots of the saucepan (if you add it in all at once, you’ll have a difficult time “spreading out” the nut butter, and it will stubbornly stay in one clump). Swirl a spoon around the oatmeal a few times.
  6. Drop in berries and stir them gently, just enough for them to get warmed up and “wet.” Then transfer to a bowl. Serve with another splash of your milk of choice and any other additional toppings (shredded coconut, nuts, etc.). You could also top with more fruit, like I did.
