Today I woke up in the strangest mood. I was frustrated about it for a while but then I turned the frustration switch off and turned on the creativity switch which resulted in this awesome treat! I find it beneficial to be able to turn bad moods into awesome creative things. You'll feel much better and get much more accomplished too! It's definitely something that takes practice and isn't easy. But definitely worth it!
I have been trying to think of something awesome to make for the past couple of days and this just popped in my head for no specific reason at all. I love this because you can have it for pretty much any meal or snack that you want. Breakfast, yep! Midnight snack, you got it! Endless possibilities. The best! You have a raw brownie base, pumpkin ice cream in the center, and coconut whipped cream on top. So fun! It's something that you need to take outside and lay under a beautiful tree to enjoy!
Pumpkin Brownie Blizzard
1 cup dates
1/4 cup oats
1 tablespoon cacao powder
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon coconut oil
In your blender or food processor, blend together ingredients. Remove from blender and press 1/2 of the batter into a glass. Set aside. If you're making 2 servings, use 1/4 of the batter in each glass.
Pumpkin Ice Cream:
3 frozen bananas
2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
1 tablespoon cashews
1 tablespoon almond milk
1 can full fat coconut milk*
Blend together all ingredients and pour into glass.
Top with coconut whipped cream, pumpkin seeds, and cinnamon if desired. Serve, enjoy!
*To make whipped cream place can of coconut milk upside down in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours. Open and pour liquid out, leaving the whipped cream.
