NON-DAIRY STRAWBERRY/ BANANA ICE CREAM

Ingredients (makes about 4 cups)

  • ½ cup (or less) non-dairy milk alternative (coconut, soy, rice, almond, etc)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 or 2 frozen bananas
  • 12 ounces frozen strawberries

 

Directions (these are for a Vitamix, modify for a regular blender…you will need a strong blender!)

Add ingredients to blender in the order listed, keeping the cap of the lid off. Set to frozen dessert setting, turn on, and use the tamper to push the frozen fruit down towards the blades.

If you don’t have a frozen dessert setting, pulse several times to break up the bananas and strawberries, then turn on and run for a few minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of the blender.

PB&J WARM QUINOA BOWL

INGREDIENTS

  • ½ cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 ½ cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tbsp natural, unsalted peanut or almond butter
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 dates, chopped
  • 2 tbsp almonds, chopped

DIRECTIONS

In a medium saucepan on medium-high, add quinoa and almond milk. Bring to a boil and swirl in peanut or almond butter. Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for 13 – 15 minutes, until quinoa is tender and almost all liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and keep covered.

In a separate saucepan, while quinoa is cooking, cook strawberries and maple syrup on medium heat for 3 minutes. Mash berries with a fork and add chia seeds. Reduce heat to low and stir occasionally until thickened. Remove from heat and keep warm.

Stir quinoa with a fork and divide between bowls. Swirl in strawberry mixture and top with dates and almonds. Top with a splash of almond milk.
