Warm Apple Crisp

Spring is a little chillier than usual and so this morning I took the liberty of warming an apple and topping it with these gorgeous ingredients:

1 apple, cored & cut in half
1/4 c pineapple, diced
1/4 c oats
1 t cinnamon (I like a lot)
1/2 c milk of choice ( I like rice, coconut or almond )

In single serve bowl, place pineapple and apple halves. Fill with oats and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Place in microwave, or oven if you have the time in your morning, and bake to soften apple. Approximately 3 1/2 minutes on medium.

Remove from oven and top with blackberries, medjool dates, coconut butter & milk of choice.

Luscious Juice!

Nothing like fresh juice in the AM. Today I enjoyed a simple apple and romaine blend that was frothy, sweet but not too sweet and very fulfilling.

3 gala apples
2 hearts of romaine

Juice and drink straight away.

Pure awesomeness.

"Better Than Rice" Pudding

1 c Almond Pulp (or any amount)
1 t Cinnamon (or to taste)
1/4 c Raisins

Combine ingredients and let stand up to an hour or enjoy right away. Store in fridge for up to two days.

Rider Game Day Pudding

For the athlete in you ;)

Love this. It is so creamy & rich and green of course!

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 5-10 minutes

1 scoop Vega Bodacious Berry smoothie blend
1 avocado
Flesh of one young Thai coconut
1 T Trophic Greens Concentrate
1 T Maca powder

Blend together in VitaMix or favorite high speed blender.

Pour into parfait cups and serve.

You can also freeze this, in which case you have ice cream. Even better ;)

For added sweetness where required, try adding medjool dates, banana, vanilla bean or cinnamon. For creaminess and thickness where coconut is not available try cashews or chia seeds. Experiment and let your taste buds guide you!

Greens powder, Maca powder and Vega products are found at whole foods markets, organic shops and health food stores. Check the yellow pages in Regina for the locations of all our local whole food grocers - Body Fuel Organics, Nature's Best Market, Old Fashioned Foods ( we've got six, well five now, of 'em! ), Eat Healthy Foods, Dad's Organic Market, and now Superstore's natural food section - gotta love 'em!

(quite the list Regina! Impressive!)
