Anti-Inflammatory Ginger Peach Oatmeal (GF)
This was a fun combo as I wasn’t quite sure to do with these peaches that were a few days old in the fridge but wanted to use them.
I decided to throw them in the blender, and then added in ginger, then apple cider vinegar and things just started getting crazy! LOL
No, for real, this is how every recipe turns out!
I made this puree and then I’m like, ok what do I do with this? So I added it to some sparkling water to make a cocktail, but it was a bit thick so that didn’t work out. Then was thinking about a bake then came to the conclusion that having a little puree for oats would be fun to drizzle on top!
So with this thick and creamy puree I thought I’d make oats like I usually do, boil water, add oats, add sea salt, add vanilla extract, and voila - oats! But this time there was a twist with some fun puree and its great to start your day with a little ginger and ACV!
The peach is an added bonus to sweeten things up AND its a stone fruit which is a double bonus! As we know stone fruits are angiogenic and cancer fighting fruits so incorporating these as many ways as possible!
A fun little twist with the oats was adding them to the blender. I like to do this once in a while and I also added chia to add more protein and nutrients so double whammy!
So I blended the oats, added in some almond milk because when you start to blend oats, they get thick, fast! So you have to keep adding liquid to keep it blending.
I just wanted to smooth them out, but nothing too crazy.
After a little blending, I removed the oats from the blended poured them in my bowl and they looked so pretty! Then I added the puree and topped it with hemp seeds and almond for more antioxidants and protein!
These were amazing! It was so fun to mix things up! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
