Sweet Dreams

Sweet DramsMost of us love sweet things. So today I am sharing a few recipes that are delicious, easy to make, and utilize mostly natural sugar from the primary foods in the recipe. These recipes will satisfy a desire for something sweet and provide good nutrition at the same time.

The first recipe is baked bananas. In this recipe when the bananas are baked it enhances their sweetness.

I love this recipe because it is one of those dessert recipes you can make in 5 minutes. You will usually have most of the ingredients on hand and if you don’t it is very easy to improvise.

The second recipe is a rice pudding recipe. In the rice pudding recipe, when the whole grain brown rice and fat from the coconut milk digests, it digests slower which allows for the absorption of nutrients instead of just spiking blood sugar levels like desserts made with processed grains like flour.

Rice pudding is one of my favorite comfort food recipes. It reminds me of baby-sitting for my brother who is 16 years younger than me. I used to make rice pudding and we would both eat it warm. Ahhhh…how comfort food can bring back precious memories.

The last recipe I am sharing today is for a vanilla latte which is a warm beverage that would be great after dinner, as a treat on a cold afternoon or an awesome post workout beverage. I adapted this from Dr. Mark Hyman’s non-coffee vanilla latte recipe.   Instead of using vanilla flavoring, I added two tablespoons of my favorite vegan protein powder.

It is so much fun to share these healthy recipes with you and to receive your feedback.  I love hearing from you.  I hope you find them helpful.

Just an FYI, I am always taking new clients into my. If you ever have any interest drop me a note.

That’s it for today. Thank you for inviting me into your day.

Ta-ta for now,

Patti
