Do you know “The Heart-Healthiest Chocolate Chip Cookies in the World”? From Vegetarian Times? I blogged about them a few months ago and posted my adapted recipe here. Tonight I tried making them without the rolled oats for some reason — an impulse decision — and they didn’t turn out as spectacular as before :(. I also replaced the walnuts with a combination of almonds and cashews and used all brown rice syrup for the sweetener instead of 50/50 brown rice syrup and maple syrup (or agave nectar) and I think all of that brown rice syrup made them a little too sticky. (The photo above is from the first batch I made, not the disappointing batch tonight.)
Since I don’t have a cookie recipe to share with you (except the one I posted before), I thought I’d share a smoothie recipe, specifically the one I enjoyed this morning.
The Classic Smoothie (i.e. Strawberry-Banana)
I wonder how the strawberry-banana smoothie came to be — why not raspberry- or blueberry-banana?
- 1 cup nondairy milk (I make fresh cashew milk = 1 cup water + 6 tbsp. raw cashews, blended)
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 large banana
- 2 tsp. maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
Blend together until smooth. Enjoy immediately.
