Raspberries

Raspberry and Banana Breakfast Parfait

Morning! Happy almost-Friday. 🙂 Last night I caught up on the Biggest Loser from Tuesday, and its amazing to see how far the contestants have come already! There transformations to date have been incredible, so I can’t even imagine how they will look at the finale. This show always sucks me in… Do any of you watch the BL? Who do you want to win from the Final Four? I’m sort of torn between Darius (because he’s so sweet and already looks amazing) and Ashley (because she’s the only female left and I think she’s handled being a lot bigger than the other contestants and still have a lot of weight to lose a million times better than Michael).

Moving on… today I had some raspberries that were on the verge of turning and really needed to be used, so I made an easy raspberry sauce. I put the raspberries in a mini food processor:

Blended them up:

Strained out the seeds:

And had a delicious and super easy raspberry sauce!

I went with the sundae theme that I had going earlier this week, and made a Raspberry and Banana Breakfast Parfait for breakfast.

I made Vegan Overnight Oats with:

  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 3/4 cup light soy milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds

Then I layered the overnight oats with the raspberry sauce, the remaining raspberries, and 1/2 a banana, chopped up.

It was sooooo tasty! The raspberry sauce made the whole thing sweet and having the layers made it fun to eat because every bite was a little different. Plus you can’t go wrong with something that resembles a sundae for breakfast!

Be back later!
