Remember a few months ago when I posted about Gena’s uneblievable Banana Softserve? Well, I was reading a few blogs the other day and came across Angela’s Cherry Banana Softserve! I love bananas and I love cherries, so this is like a match made in heaven.
I searched high and low for frozen cherries at every grocery store around. Why doesn’t anyone have frozen cherries?! I have found them in the past, but yesterday I needed cherries, so I bought a bag of organic cherries and froze my own.
I don’t have a cherry pitter, so figuring out the best (and quickest) way to pit an entire bag of cherries was interesting. I started cutting them in have and scooping out the pit, but that took forever, so I resorted to the fondue skewer.
It worked perfectly and quickly. In no time I had a bag of cherries to freeze and enjoy this morning.
This morning, I added 1 frozen banana and 6 frozen cherries to my food processor.
No more than two minutes later, I had this!
Oh my goodness.
Cherry banana softserve is delicious, but it is by no means a meal. So, I needed to add some protein and carbs to this breakfast.
I took out a serving of my pre-cooked steel cut oats from the fridge and stirred in a little milk and amazing grass chocolate protein powder. Then, I layered the oats and softserve to create a parfait.
I snuck a layer of strawberries in their too. And, topped the parfait with more strawberries and raw cacao nibs.
This may look like a fancy breakfast, but start to finish it only took 5 minutes to make. While the softserve was being created, I mixed up the pre-cooked oats, then layered. Viola!
This way the best way to start a Thursday.
