I never eat cereal. Don’t get me wrong, cereal is delicious, but I find myself eating 3 bowls before I’m full, getting a carb and sugar overload, and then feeling like crap afterwards. I can’t even recall the last time I bought a box of cereal, but this morning, I was definitely craving some crunchy, milky goodness.
Rather than eating your typical ‘cereal,’ I usually opt for muesli, a more balanced combination of oats and fruit. I first got hooked on muesli when I was traveling Switzerland. The hotel I was staying in had a breakfast muesli bar with every kind of fruit and nut to choose from, which you then top over uncooked oats with milk. Until then, I had always eaten my oats cooked, so eating uncooked oats seemed rather odd to me. Now, I don’t eat them any other way!
I am constantly experimenting with different ways to make vegan puddings, yogurts, and ice creams. This is by far the most simple (only 3 ingredients) way that I have found to make a chocolate soft serve that is not only good for you, but incredibly easy and delicious as well. You really can’t taste the banana all that much, it just adds a creamy taste and texture with a hint of banana. This dessert is quite addicting. I eat it almost every night, and without the guilt. ;-)
