Sweet Dates with Nuts-Strawberry Smoothie Porridge Bowl


Follow Me on Pinterest
I am calling this smoothie porridge bowl "Sweet Dates with Nuts".  Hope you enjoy!

A FEW WORDS ABOUT DATES

In the Bible, dates are referred to many times, often in reference to their sweetness.  Dates continue to be grown and eaten in-- and exported from-- the Middle East.  Our North American grocery stores now also sell soft delicious Medjool dates grown in the USA.  Such a nice change from the hard cake of dates I knew as "dates" when I was a girl in rural Saskatchewan.

Dates also turn out to have the highest nutritional profile as a sweetener. They contain vitamin K, magnesium, selenium, antioxidants  and of course, fibre.  Early risers during the time of Ramadan (fasting all day) eat dates for breakfast as a chief way to get through the day.   

Date Syrup

Many Middle Eastern cooks make a date syrup-- dates and water-- as a delightful sweetener and for baking.  There are different methods, some more traditional methods with a 100% hands-on approach: soaking the dates, squeezing all the "juices" through cheese gauze, and then cooking the date juice down with constant stirring until a honey-like texture is obtained.  

I made a syrup by pouring boiling water over  2 cups of Medjool dates and letting them overnight.  Next morning I sieved out as much liquid as I could and boiled it down.  I mashed the leftover bits and they are a mass I can call "date butter"-- basically, jam. Very yummy.

The syrup I used in the smoothie porridge bowl, along with thin almond butter to represent "the nuts."  

So, here are the suggested ingredients:

*simple strawberry-water smoothie
*almond butter, thinned with a bit of H2O 
*date syrup (see above)
*coconut yogurt
*strawberries
*Hemp seeds

ENJOY!

Pineapple-Blueberry Smoothie Porridge Bowl


My husband and I generally have a smoothie and a bowl of oatmeal porridge for breakfast.  It was only a matter of time until we blended the two into a "smoothie porridge bowl."

I am going to hashtag these recipe ideas as #tomorrowssmoothiebowl on Twitter and Instagram, the point being that you might like the looks of it, but maybe you don't have the ingredients you would like or try.

Pineapple-Blueberry 
Porridge Smoothie Bowl

Start with a lovely creamy bowl of oats, either steaming hot or overnight oats that you have soaked in plant milk for 8 hours or over night.
(Ours contains about a small
 handful of Thompson's raisins. )

2. Now, gently pour on about a 1/4 of a cup of fairly thick, sludgy smoothie-- I am using plain blueberry smoothie here (blueberry, banana and water).  

3. Add on pineapple chunks, banana rounds and a sprinkle of hempseed.

4. Enjoy with your fave plant milk, or as is!
