Tag Archives: Almond milk

I really want to try this recipe. I didn’t even know you could bake oatmeal! I learn something new everyday.

Yield: Serves 6

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Ingredients:

2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped almonds
2 cups Almond Breeze Vanilla Unsweetened Almond Milk
1 large egg
3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted and cooled slightly (or melted and cooled butter)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 1/2 cups chopped peaches
Peach slices for the top, optional

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8×8 square baking dish and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, mix together the oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and almonds.

3. In another medium bowl, whisk together the almond milk, egg, coconut oil, vanilla, and almond extract.

4. Arrange the chopped peaches on the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Pour the oat mixture evenly over the peaches. Pour the almond milk mixture over the oats. Gently shake the baking dish to make sure the milk covers the oats evenly. If desired, add a few sliced peaches to the top of the oatmeal. It makes the oatmeal look pretty:)

5. Bake for 40 minutes, until the top is golden and oatmeal is set. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve warm.

Note-this baked oatmeal is great reheated in the microwave. We like to add a splash of almond milk for extra creaminess! This recipe can easily be doubled for a 9×13 pan. Use gluten-free oats to make this recipe gluten-free.

Last day of Beverage week. After finding these recipes there are so many that I want to try! I chose this one because who doesn’t love cinnamon rolls? Well other than my 5 year old? Every time I go to the mall I pass Cinnabun and think, Man I want one, but I don’t want to destroy my whole day by getting that really big Cinnabun. This way I can get my cinnamon bun fix without those at least 800 calores lol.

INGREDIENTS

1 frozen banana, cut into four pieces
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pure maple syrup
Cinnamon stick, for garnish

DIRECTIONS

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth, and add more almond milk if necessary.
  2. Pour into a tall glass, add the cinnamon stick for garnish, and enjoy.

Makes one serving

I saw this and I just knew I had to make it day 2 of Skinny Beverage week. I love my Nana’s pumpkin pie. She makes the best! When I saw this  I thought it must taste great!

Ingredients:
1 cup unsweetened pumpkin puree (to make your own, click here)
1 frozen banana
1/2-1 cup unsweetened almond milk, or other dairy-free milk
1 scoop unflavored (or vanilla) protein powder* – optional
2-3 TBSP agave or maple syrup, to taste
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. ginger
Small pinch of cloves
Small pinch of salt
Ice – optional

For the coconut whipped cream:
1  15oz. can full fat coconut milk, chilled overnight
2-3 tsp. agave or maple syrup, or to taste – optional

Directions:
Blend all ingredients until smooth – add almond milk to thin to the consistency you want. Top with coconut whipped cream if desired… and who wouldn’t desire it? Garnish with a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg, and enjoy!

For the coconut whipped cream:
Remove the well-chilled can of coconut milk from the fridge, and turn it upside down. Open the can, and pour off the coconut ‘water’ (this can be saved for later use in other recipes, or for drinking). In the bottom you’ll be left with the separated coconut fat. Spoon this out into a bowl, and whisk or beat with a mixer until smooth. Mix in a little sweetener, or some vanilla or other spices, to taste. Store any extra in the fridge and re-whip when ready to use.

Day two and Day three of T focus 25 finished. Yesterday’s workout my son did with me. Today I did it while he was having his breakfast. He was a little upset that he could not “help me” and made me promise to let him workout with me tomorrow. Today’s workout was total body workout. I notice I had to do a lot of the modified version. That did not bother me since I know I will be able to better myself every single day. I am a work in progress.

This week’s challenge is for me to eat every 2-3 hours. I know what some of you think. I wonder if that girl is eating whole meals every three hours. Uh. No…. three meals a day and small snacks. I tried the tropical strawberry shakeology this morning with coconut milk and it taste a lot better. Thanks to the girls on Facebook for suggesting it to me. I will be sure to update you when I try it with the almond milk. There is also a recipe calendar with different ingredients you can put in it. I had no idea that my son robbed it and had it in his room. Little guy must of taken it whiles I was looking at the other stuff from the box.

What workout are you doing?
