cherry softserve

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. 🙂
