Banana Date Apple Cinnamon Smoothie

Last night I was thinking of a super duper sweet smoothie that involved coconut, dates and bananas. I threw in the apple at the last minute. And what better spice to go with all of that than cinnamon?
I drank this along with my citrus water...I made orange/lemon juice and let it sit overnight. Both were very hydrating and the smoothie really filled me up. Onto the recipe!

5 medjool dates (pitted)
4 bananas chilled in the freezer
1/2 apple
Cinnamon (as much as you want)
1 1/2 cups of coconut water
A splash of coconut milk

You only need to chill the bananas for about 1/2 hour to an hour. The idea is just to get them cold.
Put all the ingredients in your blender and blend on high. Pour in your favorite mason jar and enjoy :) It tastes like a beautiful fall day!

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.
