“You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love” ~ Henry Drummond

I hope that you all find a way to spread the love today.

Nourish your relationships and the people you care for by feeding them something fantastic you’ve made by hand. Perhaps…a parfait?

‘Be Mine’ Berry Banana Parfait 

½ cup almonds
½ cup rolled oats
½ cup medjool dates, pitted
¼ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp dry ground ginger
½ tsp vanilla extract

Soft-serve layers
2 ripe bananas, peeled and frozen
½ cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)

1. Combine the granola ingredients in a food processor and pulse until it begins to clump together.
2. In a clean food processor, blend the frozen bananas until a smooth, soft-serve-ice-cream-like consistency is achieved (approximately 2 minutes).
3. Remove 1 cup of the banana ice cream and set aside. Add the blueberries to the food processor with the remaining banana ice cream and blend until the blueberries are well incorporated.

4. Layer the parfait components in glasses, starting with granola, then the reserved banana ice cream, followed by the blueberry ice cream and repeat to fill each glass.

Serves 4.

Love, Lisa xo

    We will still have our dancing night. And it will be all the more magical because it will be on a day of our choosing. Happy Valentine’s Day, my sunbeam. xo
