The first recipe we want to share with you are cupcakes made with quinoa and dried pineapple. This is a recipe that all members of the family can enjoy; get out of the routine, maintaining a healthy lifestyle. During the last years the quinoa has taken relevance in thousands of dishes and is due to its great benefits because it reduces muscle damage, eliminates hunger, is a nutritious food for all members of the family, has a low glycemic index and also we can find it in its natural form or in flour. For this occasion, we will need quinoa flour; one of the great advantages is that it does not contain gluten.
For this recipe we will need:
- 1/2 cup of quinoa flour
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup fresh cheese smoothie or yogurt
- 2 tablespoons grated coconut
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
- 1 cup of almond milk
- 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon of Vanilla essence
- ½ cup of organic dried pineapple
- ½ cup of sliced almonds
To start making this recipe we will need to preheat the oven before anything is done. Later, in a container place the quinoa flour, the baking powder, the eggs, the cheese or yogurt cup and the almond milk and start stirring; then, add the grated coconut, the coconut oil and the vanilla essence. Finally, add the pineapple until it has no lumps.
In the cupcake tray serve the mixture and add sliced almonds on top of each cupcake. You need to bake 30 minutes at 374 F; you can check with a toothpick if they are ready. It needs to be introduced into the cupcake; if it comes out clean it means that they are ready. That easy we have a great recipe for an afternoon tea, send a healthy cupcake for our children’s lunch or a delicious dessert.
Organic dried pineapple ice cream.
After eating who does not crave something sweet to finish a delicious meal. However, many times we limit ourselves by the amount of calories this would imply, so we often end up without dessert or eating one that we do not like very much just because it contains fewer calories.
Ice cream is a delicious dessert but usually contains large amounts of sugar so it is unthinkable to consume it (for many people). The most important thing is to take a balanced diet, this does not mean that we have to forget all our guilty pleasures in the world, but we can modify them a bit and enjoy those pleasures more often, changing habits that allow us to achieve our weight goals to maintain a healthy life.
For this recipe we will need:
- 1 frozen banana
- ½ cup of dried mango or 1 fresh mango
- 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
- 2 cups of organic dried pineapple
- ¾ cup of almond milk
To prepare it we will need to place the dried pineapple and the fresh mango or dried mango in the freezer for an hour so that they are very cold when making the ice cream. In case you do not have time to put them in the fridge you can add ice in the mixture. Then, we have to gather all the ingredients in a blender, blend until there are no lumps and have a creamy texture. This is a dessert between smoothie and ice cream but you can freeze it for 30 minutes so that it has the consistency of ice cream. Finally, you only have to serve it; you can do it with some chia seeds at the top of each glass of ice cream and a slice of fresh banana.
Sometimes, during the weekend we consume food that usually we don´t eat but it is not about limiting everything; simply balance it and if one day we eat too much we can compensate it with a day of healthy food like incorporating a detox juice the next day.
