Sour Cherry Oatmeal With Mango and Shredded Almonds

DSC_0020

I’m one of those people who prefer sour cherries to normal sweet cherries. Today, instead of making sour cherry smoothie (like I did three days in a row before), I made some warm sour cherry oatmeal and added fresh mango for sweetness and shredded almonds for crunchiness and proteins. To make the oatmeal even sweeter (without using any refined sugar), add a few chopped dates or a few drops of date syrup. It tastes amazing! đŸ™‚

Sour Cherry Oatmeal With Mango and Shredded Almonds

Seves: 2

Ingredients

1 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2 cup sour cherries
1 ripe mango
1/2 cup shredded almonds

In a pot, heat coconut oil, add oats and milk and cook for a few minutes, stirring constantly. If you have frozen sour cherries, add now and cook for about two more minutes and if they’re fresh, add in the end. Transfer the oatmeal into a bowl, add shredded almonds and top with sliced mango. Enjoy!

1. Oat pancakes with cashew lemon sauce, warm blueberries, fresh strawberries and banana

One of the good things about holidays and weekends is having enough time to make delicious and healthy meals. Another ones are going on trips, discovering new places and not worrying about anything. Today I went on a hike along Slovenian coast and when I came home, I was craving something fresh but filling and came up with this lentil salad with pan-roasted cauliflower, cabbage, spring onions, fresh parsley and mustard dressing. I think this is my new favourite salad! Continue reading “Spring Lentil and Roasted Cauliflower Salad”

I think there’s no such thing as a vegan, who doesn’t like hummus, the chickpea-based dip/spread. I guess I’ve tried every hummus brand available here in Slovenia, but the store-bought hummus can never be as good as the home-made one! Continue reading “Beet Hummus”
