I didn’t have avocado oil so here’s my version:
- 1 cup of chopped strawberries
- 1/2 tsp coconut oil
- drops of vanilla
- 2 tbsp coconut bliss ice cream
DIVINE~~~ berries and coconut is definitely a winning combo! 😉
my version: grilled asparagus with poached eggs.
Review #1: Maranatha Almond Butter
I bought it last weekend in Costco with a good deal and haven’t been having it with oat bran every morning since then
Coco’s review: I have mixed feelings about it. From on hand, I like that it’s smooth and runny, even stored in fridge, no stir required, so it’s easy to eat/melt. From the other hand, its lack of body and creaminess let me unsatisfied, I also find it not salty enough. So, I think I won’t buy it again. Rating: 3/5.
I made a tortilla-free burrito. hehehe…. well, it’s just rice/bean chili that I made the other day topped with a bed of greens.
I just started reading Country Driving: A journey through China from farm to factory
Dinner featured another stir-fry of greens: romaine, broccoli, mushrooms with garlic and sesame oil.
Review #2: Few days ago I received from Sahale Snacks 3 packets of their flavored nuts and they’re all gone!!! 😆
#1 : SOLEDAD: This delectable snacking experience features almonds, apples, and flax seeds, tickled with date, balsamic vinegar and cayenne.
Coco’s review: this is my favorite one. First because I love almonds. And then the combination of flavor is amazing, a bit sour, a bit spicy, perfectly balanced with the sweetness of the dates. Rating: 5/5
#2: Cashews with pomegranate + vanilla: a perfect combination of sublime flavors: Pomegranate, Vanilla, and Cashews. The whole roasted Cashews are teamed with Pomegranate and Apple, and balanced with pure Vanilla bean. Our light glaze adds just the right amount of sweetness.
Coco’s review: this is an interesting combo, it tastes like dessert for me although a little bit too sweet. Rating: 4/5.
#3: Barbeque Almonds with Mild Chipotle + Ranch. Enjoy the harmony of classic tastes with an all-natural twist. The Barbeque Almonds are seasoned with a proprietary “Dry Rub” spice blend and accented with tangy buttermilk ranch. Then, they’re slow roasted to a smoky, spicy-sweet perfection.
Coco’s review: it sounds really good but I didn’t like the flavor. It was like eating a meal when I was actually snacking. I guess it would be a nice topping for salad (I should have saved it for that instead of just finishing the packet without enjoying it). Rating: 2/5.
Overall, I like their products, their creative flavor combos and the handy packet size. I definitely will buy them in the future.
Q: Do you like flavored nuts? If you can make one, what would be?
