Bowl of Yum!

July 22, 2011 in Sweets and Treats

I want to share a favorite treat of mine that helps when you are trying to beat the sweets! Avery LOVES it, too and will eat it for breakfast or dessert any day!

We call it the BOWL OF YUM!

I don’t usually make it in a glass, I did that just so you could see the layers of goodness!

I usually just use a mini bowl like this, because a little goes a long way!

I guess you want to know what we put in the yum to make it so yummy?!

1 scoop almond butter

A sprinkle of shredded coconut

A sprinkle a chia seeds

A handful of blueberries (or strawberries for Avery-too sweet for me)

A sprinkle of crushed pecans or walnuts

And topped with coconut milk

DUDE, that’s goooooood!!

P.S. Be sure when you buy Almond Butter that the ingredients are just ALMONDS. Do not buy it if it has any other ingredients, except maybe flax like this ONE.

Also, coconut milk should only have coconuts and maybe some water.

    Delicious! Thanks for letting me know about your chalk secrets! Really appreciate it! Going to try it on mine! I had been wondering.

    I have been doing something like this for breakfast minus the coconut- kiwi, strawberries, banana, blueberries, apples with a dallop of almond butter, drizzle of honey and smashed up nuts on top. I make them ahead of time for a grab and go breakfast. I like to make them up in ball jars!

    Appreciate you sharing your yummy treats. Now what about those cookies?

    The blog is so incredible. Love all the whole food tips and recipes. Thank you for sharing your story about your daughter. I have a son with mulitple food allergies/sensitivities and can completely relate to your journey. We have veered off our diet recently, but you have inspired me to get back on track in an even better way. Kudos to you!

    This sounds delicious! Can’t wait to try. Just found you through Darby. My husband and I own a CrossFit gym and have been eating paleo for a long time. As soon as Darby said you eat Paleo I knew I had to check out your blog! I always love finding new paleo recipes!

    That looks absolutely delicious! I think I would make it in the clear glass container everyday just to see its layers, Love Jen’s comment/idea about making it in mason jars for on the go.

    I found your blog recently and just love it! I don’t eat paleo, but pretty close to it and your recipes sound wonderful. I’m 7 weeks pregnant and my stomach isn’t tolerating much…but I made the bowl of yum and it was so tasty and my tummy loved it too. So thank you!
