I. Love. This. So much. Chocolate is addictive (I'll write a post about that soon enough...when I'm ready to admit it), and incredible. But this dip is perfect with any fruit. My favorite is raspberries, but I love it with bananas, apples, strawberries...anything I can get my hands on. Don't let the ingredients fool you, it tastes like chocolate, looks like chocolate, and is better than chocolate. There's no guilt, no sugar, and no dairy (also gluten free!). Perfect for me!
This makes enough for about 6, with 107 calories per serving (a serving is a lot of dip), and if you add 1 cup mixed berries, that only another 70 calories. So this dessert is only 177 calories total, not bad considering how much food it is for a snack/dessert.
Here's one of my favorite home recipes. Proof that veggies are meant to be together! This is a child of boredom, and I make it almost daily. Super cheap, and and fast to prepare.
You will need:
1 Russet Potato
3 Mini Bell Peppers (I use the red and yellow for color)
1/2 Medium Onion
1/4 Cup Carrots
2 Corn Tortillas
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Pepper
Seasoned salt to taste
Slice the potato and start to simmer (I use water instead of oil). The thinner you slice it, the faster it will cook. Let it simmer on the stove while you prep the onions, peppers, and carrots.
Slice the onions into strips and chop the carrots and peppers. When your potatoes are cooked about half way add the veggies.
(You may need to add more water to keep the veggies from sticking, but don't add too much or you'll boil instead of saute)
Cut the mushrooms, tomato and avocados. When the other veggies are cooked, add the last group of veggies and let it sit for a few minutes. Add salt, pepper and seasoned salt.
Warm the tortillas.
Remove from the stove and serve! I add Tapatío to spice it up.
- 1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oats (healthier than instant and usually cheaper)
- 1 cup water
- 3/4 cup assorted berries (or any fruit for that matter, but this is my favorite)
- 1 banana
|Try adding cinnamon for some extra flavor!|
Put your oats and water into a microwave proof bowl.
Heat for one minute, stir the oats and water, and then heat for an additional 30 seconds. Keep your eye on it, it might need a little more time, just make sure you check it every thirty seconds after the initial minute otherwise it might overflow allover your microwave.
Remove bowl from microwave, add fruit, mix and enjoy!
I often have this as a snack too, especially if I'm up late studying and I want something sweet but not really caloric. It's also really colorful so it looks pretty. :)
