Peanut butter banana oats with maple drizzle and a few updates!

Hey everyone! I got this recipe inspiration from instagram and I wanted to share with you! I also wanted to share some other updates.

I've never combined nana ice cream and oats before and if I had to do it again, I would let the bananas sit in the freezer a little longer because they weren't as frozen as I wanted. For good nana ice cream freeze your bananas for 4-6 hours depending on how cold your freezer is. My freezer is super cold so I only froze them for 2 hours but it wasn't enough time.

2 frozen bananas
2 tbsp of peanut butter
1/2 cup of rolled oats
1 tbsp of maple syrup
1 non-frozen banana (optional)
Blend the two frozen bananas and the peanut butter until the ice cream is smooth and creamy. Pour into a mason jar or bowl. Stir in the rolled oats and top with the non frozen banana and drizzle with maple syrup. Store in the fridge overnight. You could put this in the freezer for a few hours instead and enjoy everything frozen.

I just had a contest on IG with one of my fellow vegans and we picked four winners to win our ebooks! It was alot of fun. I meant to mention the contest on this blog so I will remember to do that next time! I haven't had much time for blogging because of my yoga teacher training schedule but I promise to start blogging at least every other day from now on.
I'm also selling a vegan meal plan on my website to help get people started with the vegan lifestyle. It's $20 for a meal plan with recipes, photos, a grocery list, nutritional facts and full email support from ne. If you want to sign up, go to my website and click on buy meal plan. I'm excited to get people started, I love helping new vegans/vegetarians :)

My yoga teacher training is really heating up and it's FUN! We are smack dab in the middle of it, actually after this weekend we get a break for the 4th of July and then we only have two more weekends. Tonight we are going on a field trip to a museum, can't wait!
Since moving to NYC, I've tried a few vegan restaurants and visited a few grocery stores and bakeries. I'll be sure to write a vegan guide to NYC in the coming weeks so anyone visiting or moving to the city will know what is up.
Stay well friends!!

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
