Quinoa and cashew mousse breakfast bowl

In the morning, I don’t have time to take my time. And, personally, unless there’s a heatwave, I prefer starting my days with a warm and comforting meal… even during summer! Here’s an easy recipe that you can prepare in advance and put together in a few minutes in the morning.

Ingredients (for 1-2 bowls, depending on your hunger!)

–        1 cup of cooked quinoa;
–        ½ to 1 cup of fresh fruits, cut;
–        ¼ cup of grains or nuts of your choice;
–        1 cup of Dose cashew milk;
–        1 tablespoon of maple syrup;
–        ½ teaspoon of cinnamon;
–        1 pinch of salt.

In a bowl, place cooked quinoa and garnish with fruits and nuts or grains. Set aside.

In a pot, pour the cashew milk and maple syrup. Add cinnamon and salt, then mix with a whisk. Heat over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture becomes hot and nicely whipped. (For this part, you can use a milk frother: it’ll be easier and faster!)

Pour the hot mixture on quinoa. Serve immediately.

ALL NATURAL POPSICLE – RECIPE

I think this Summer is one of the hottest summers I’ve ever lived; I keep looking for places with AC, for pools and for ice cream stands.

So, when I received my weekly pack full of juices in my apartment that doesn’t have air conditioner (😭please send help), I immediately thought of transforming them into popsicles.

The result was so refreshing and delicious that I decided to share this easy peasy recipe with you.

Here it goes!

You need:
– a popsicle mold
– your favorite Dose juices (I chose Melon, Taxi and Zest)
– fruits (I chose blackberries, but you can choose anything)

image

Preparation:
– fill half of each mold with your juices
– freeze for an hour
– fill the rest of the molds with the rest of the juices
(make sure each popsicle is made with two different juices – it’s so pretty!)
– add fruits on the top
– freeze for about two hours
– enjoy ❤

Simple like that!

HOW TO FIX A DISGUSTING SMOOTHIE

image

It has happened to all of us at least once: we’re full of good intentions and decide to make a healthy smoothie, but almost spit it when we take the first sip. But what do you do when you don’t want to throw the weird, bad tasting, beverage in the trash and waste all the good things that you have unfortunately mixed together?

We found solutions for you. They’re super easy and honestly can fix almost every smoothie mistake!

PROBLEM: IT TASTES LIKE DIRT

image

Sometimes, when you put too many raw veggies in your mix, it can taste a bit earthy… Broccoli is good for dinner but a whole bouquet can be intense in a smoothie. What you have to do: add a teaspoon of vanilla extract. It will cover the weird taste, add a little touch of sweetness without being too sugary nor caloric! And if you don’t want it to be sweet, you can add grains or nuts, such as peanuts, sunflower seeds or cashews. It will become creamier with a nutty flavor.

PROBLEM: IT’S TOO SWEET

image

You like bananas, but maybe you’ve went a little bit crazy for your morning drink and it’s now just too sugary? What you have to do: add some lime or lemon juice or a little bit of cider vinegar. Acidity compensates for sweetness!

PROBLEM: IT’S THICK AS RUBBER (OR ALMOST)

image

Its texture is hardly drinkable… You need a spoon, worse: a fork, to consume it. If you wanted a smoothie bowl, it’s okay… but if you were planning to drink it on-the-go, it’s problematic. The solution is quite simple. What you have to do: add some fresh juice (cold-pressed of course!), coconut water or fruits that contain a lot of water, like watermelon for example, to your mix.

PROBLEM: IT’S TOO LIQUID

image

It’s not good when you’re “eating” your smoothie, but having the feeling you’re drinking flavoured water isn’t better when you wanted something smoother. What you have to do: the easiest thing is to add ice cubes! Otherwise, frozen fruits, a banana, yogurt or half of an avocado can solidify your beverage just enough.

Now, to your blenders!👩🏽‍🍳
