“Bananarama” & “Chilled Summer Salad”

me again!🙂

wooah, it’s really hot today.

I know i promised you some hot savory meals/recipes, but i’ve got 2, in my opinion very strong, excuses, besides the weather, of course.

Number 1 is a recipe i adapted from Katie (yes, once again..but i can’t help it- this girl’s a genious!).

I made some very small changes, and called it

“BANANARAMA”

everyone who enjoys  loves peanut butter but thinks it’s a little too “heavy” or dense will love this recipe, as long as he/she likes bananas. but hey, who doesn’t like bananas, right?😉

it’s so easy to make and you don’t need much time. yesterday evening i made half a glass with these ingredients:

– 1 whole, ripe banana

– 3 T peanut butter, unsweetened

– dash of salt

– 2-3 T cinnamon

– 1 T kardamom

optional: sweetener like agave syrup, local bio honey, maple syrup or stevia

–> blend all your ingredients until well mixed. the mixture is up to your tase: you can use more/less banana and pb.

put it in a glass and store in your fridge.

what can you do with the bananarama?

well, this is of course also up to you!

you can either eat it by the spoonful, eat it on a sandwich or so, use it as a dip for anything you can think of, and so on.

i enjoyed the bananarama sandwiched between some apple-bites..

oh, and don’t forget: IT’S HEALTHY! 

about my Number 2 excuse...

i told you about the weather..the sun is shining bright and burning down today, so i couldn’t get myself to doing any cooking.

instead, i decided for some yummy, fresh and protein-packed summer-salad:

“CHILLED SUMMER SALAD”

who says vegans don’t get enough protein?😉

here’s how you do it:

– fresh tomatoes

– fresh pepper

– fresh cucumber

– cooked beans, drained and rinsed

–> cut your veggies into pieces and throw everything in a bowl.

dressing:

(you can make any dressing you like, but i like it simple)

balsamico vinegar

lemonjuice

– any vegetable oil you like

optional: some sort of sweetener

chilli

salt

black pepper

basil

if you like, you can combine this salad with some (toasted) bread or any other grain-food, like rice, quinoa etc.

another thing that would perfectly make up with this salad would be some roasted nuts or seeds.

see, it’s rich in nutrients and simply delicious!

about the amounts:  just go ahead and try! find your own yummy combination!🙂

oh, and don’t you forget about the bananarama!🙂

have a nice day!
