Sweet Sustenance (Kris Carr)
If you like oatmeal cookies as much as I do, you’ll love this recipe. Rolled oats add a thick creamy texture and are also rich in soluble fiber, which can help you feel full for a super long time. The recipe gets a flavor boost from ground cinnamon and a touch of sweetness from lucuma powder.
Pro Tip: Lucuma is a fruit native to Peru, and powder derived from the fruit has a mildly sweet flavor that hovers somewhere between butterscotch and vanilla. As an added bonus, it can be used as a low-glycemic sweetener. You can find the powder at health-food stores and online; I like Navitas Naturals and Sunfoods brands.
1 banana, frozen
1/3 cup rolled oats
2 tablespoons almond butter
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon lucuma powder
1 1/2 cups nondairy milk of choice
1. Wash and prep all ingredients.
2. Blend and serve.
