Gotta love Fridays! Especially when you get to enjoy delicious treats like this 🙂 Who says healthy food has to be boring and gnarly? Not me! This yummy apple bowl is packed with protein, fibre, and yummy deliciousness. Plus it’s also a great recipe to have for the fall…oh no, summer is almost over! Oh well, bring on the pumpkins! 🙂
Recipe: serves 1
1 organic red apple
1/4 cup organic quinoa (cooked)
3 tbsp canned organic unsweetened coconut milk
1/8 tsp organic pure vanilla extract
1 organic sweet leaf stevia packet
A dash of cinnamon (for the apple)
Dark chocolate shavings (optional for topping)
Pre-heat the oven to 400°F.
Core your apple and sprinkle the top with a dash of cinnamon. Place apple on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 20-25 minutes.
Boil raw quinoa in a skillet over medium heat with 1/2 a cup of water for 15 minutes or until fully cooked. Strain out the water and place the quinoa into the skillet. Add coconut milk, vanilla extract, and stevia and let it cook for 5 minutes over medium heat until a thick pudding has formed.
Take out the apple from the oven when ready and top immediately with the quinoa pudding. Top with dark chocolate shavings.
