These little flavor morsels are dairy free, gluten free, and can be eaten on the Detox Diet I have listed on our blog. They are easy to make in bulk and can be stored away for a quick and easy breakfast on the go.
Some nights call for breakfast for dinner. Now, if you’re gluten intolerant like me, this simple idea can seem down right impossible. I was able to make this dinner a success by going through my pantry, checking what ingredients I had on hand, and doing a simple google search. I had to improvise with what I found online, and luckily this meal passed the test. Bread loving boyfriend approved.
Here’s what you need:
Almond flour (try buying this in bulk and then storing in an air tight container)
Brown rice flour (also buy this in bulk) Milk (I used coconut milk)
In a bowl combine wet ingredients and mix:
1 cup milk
1 overripe banana
In a bowl combine dry ingredients:
3/4 cup almond flour
3/4 cup brown rice flour
1 tsp cinnamon
Dash of nutmeg
Pinch of salt
2 tsp baking powder
Step 3: Mix the wet and dry ingredients together.
Step 4: Make sauce by heating up 8-10 large strawberries and then purée in a food processor, blender or hand held purée thingy.
Step 5: Heat up a skillet and some coconut oil over medium heat. Place 1/4 cup of batter on skillet, cook until it bubbles and then flip and cook until golden brown.
Step 6: Drizzle sauce over pancakes. Serve up with some fresh squeezed juice! I had a few oranges and some grapefruit on hand to pair with these delicious pancakes.
You could say green smoothies are a bit of oddity to the layman. I admit, I was a bit concerned what my carnivorous boyfriend was going to think of my concoctions when he figured out what I had in mind. Fortunately, the first tester drink was met with a huge sigh of relief, he loved it! To start the day off on a positive note, we like to treat ourselves to home-made breakfast with a new smoothie variation daily. Trust me, it’s worth it — and it will boost your mood.
In a juicer combine:
Kale (one bunch)
3 Celery Stalks
2 Jazz Apples
Shot of pure cranberry juice
Try throwing ice into the bucket that collects your juice for a chilled drink.
