New Year, New Me- am I right?! This last year we made every excuse to eat refined sugars, fried foods and processed snacks. This year, instead of just developing a new year’s resolution we came up with a plan to meet our goals. Anyone can write down a goal- but the plan is what gets you there. I’m excited to be working with Nutrasweet Natural to create some fun, healthy recipes to share with you all. If you haven’t had Nutrasweet before- now is the time to try it! It doesn’t have that bitter taste that artificial sweeteners have because it’s 100% natural and comes straight from the stevia leaf. The best part- 1 packet is equivalent to 2 tsp of sugar but with zero calories.
- Ingredients (makes two .25L Weck Jars)
- -1 1/4 cup Old Fashioned Oats
- -2 packets @NutrasweetNatural
- -2 cups Plant Based milk (I used Oat/Flax milk)
- -1 tbs Vanilla
- -1 tbs favorite healthy nut butter
- -1/4 cup Chia seeds
- -1 tbs Cinnamon
- -1 smashed banana
- -fresh fruit (raspberries blueberries, bananas)
- -honey drizzle
Start by bringing your plant milk to a boil in a small saucepan. Next, add in the nut butter, banana, vanilla and Nutrasweet. Combine until smooth. Lower the heat to simmer and add in the oatmeal and chia seeds. I don’t like my oats mushy so I only let them simmer for a couple of minutes. Add your fresh fruit, drizzle with honey and sprinkle a few more chia seeds. Enjoy!
You can also use these ingredients to make overnight oats.
