Versatile recipes are important to have in one’s repertoire. I love this recipe as it can be a healthy breakfast, snack, or a dessert with just a simple ingredient swap. Enjoy holiday flavors, festive colors, and a quick prep dish this holiday season!
Base Breakfast Recipe:
1 Cup Almond Milk (Regular or Reduced Sugar)
1/2 Cup Maraschino Cherries + Juice (Cherry Man is my gluten free choice)
1 RIPE banana
1/4 Cup Chia Seeds (organic is preferred)
Mash the banana
Add the almond milk and cherries and stir till combined
Add the chia seeds and stir
Chill in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes or until desired consistency (add more liquid or if you wish a “thinner” consistency)
To convert to a mid-day snack…serve 1 cup with a 1/2 cup of walnut pieces or slivered almonds and 1-2 tbsp shredded coconut (low sugar or sugar free)
To convert to a dessert…Use VANILLA Almond Milk or add 2 TBSP vanilla flavoring to the Base Breakfast Recipe.
