Banana oat coconut shake

The summer is in full swing swing and today I have been in the milkshake making mood! Well in between sitting outside in the sunshine preparing for my first 'Health Food Store Tour' happening next week... eeek so excited!  I have some more cool milkshake recipes to come your way next week too!

I love my green smoothies, but sometimes something a little more creamy, with a touch of indulgent sweetness takes my fancy. This was perfect served straight from the fridge. 

I've been testing out the new drinking oats by Rude Health, and because they are super fine and flaky, they blend effortlessly into smoothies thickening them up without the need for extra banana or nut butter... not that there is anything wrong with either of those ingredients, it's just that sometimes you don't want hugely bananary smoothie and sometimes you want a few extra carbs over fats. In this recipe I used one very small banana, whereas typically I would've needed a much larger one to create the same thickness.

I've also been trying the new Rude Health coconut milk as you saw in my choc banana oat bakeand it makes for a lovely change poured over a mini fruity bowl of muesli. 

P.s new give-away next week! Remember I said i'd teamed up with lots of companies I love, well next week I'll be launching a bundle of Rude Health products! Watch out for it...!

Recipe: Banana oat smoothie

Serves 1

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk (I used rude health coconut milk)
  • ¼ heaped cup rude health drinking oats (or 3 tbs fine oatmeal*)
  • 1 small banana
  • A pinch of cinnamon or vanilla powder 
  • coconut flakes to serve

Method

Blend all together until think and creamy. Add coconut flakes for a chewy topping.

Serve immediately or chill to cool and thicken slightly.

 *you could use regular fine oatmeal- it might just have a bit more of a texture than the drinking oats.

The super thin drinking oats...they 'dissolve' into any liquid!

Choc-banana-hazelnut oat bake

I'm trying lots of new products at the moment. Having done a couple of giveaways I recently decided to get in touch with companies I love and whose products I use on a regular basis, I figured if I love them then you probably would too!

Over the next few weeks in amongst my recipes I will be showcasing their ingredients. I'll also throw in some reviews and more giveaways for you lot!

You cool with that!?

Last weekend I also went to V-Delicious and the Allergy and Free-From Show in London, which was a other great opportunity to try new foods, talk to manufacturers and make new contacts for future blog collaborations... watch this space!  

The pic on the right shows a few of the things I bought- all new to me!  I'm particularly excited to try the raw Pana Chocolate as I was given this sample for free from 'Mr Pana' himself! :-)

Have you tried any of them?

 

 

Today I have for you an oat bake recipe.... it's been a little while since an oat bake, and this is actually one of the first combos I ever made but I didn't capture it on camera at the time. 

On Sunday I remade it with a selection of Rude Health's products... namely their oats and the new coconut milk. I also tried a recipe with their new drinking oats.. but i'll save that for another time once i've perfected it.

This coconut milk would also be perfect for making the tropical pineapple version with... still one of my favourite bresserts of all time!!

Why not serve it up for a leisurely breakfast with an extra glass of coconut milk on the side!

Recipe: Choc-banana-hazelnut oat bake

Serves 2 (could easily double up and use a larger pan to serve 4)

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup porridge oats (could use any of these from Rude Health except the oatmeal)
  • 1 heaped tsp ground flax 
  • Pinch salt
  • Handful of hazelnuts (roasted or raw) this would also be good with coconut chips
  • 1 tbs cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 banana- half mashed, half sliced.
  • Approx. few drops stevia or 1-2 tbs sugar/syrup to taste.
  • ½ cup non-dairy milk (I used Rude Health coconut milk)

Method:

Mix all dry ingredients together in a medium bowl, add the mashed banana and sweetener to the milk then mix all into the dry ingredients.

Arrange the sliced banana on top of the mixture once spooned into a small pie dish.

Use a medium pie dish- approx 18 cm diameter (the mixture should be approx 2cm deep). Bake at 180C for approx 20 mins until the top is golden and banana lightly browned at the edges.

Note: for speed you can microwave the bake for 2 mins and then grill the top to lightly brown for 2 mins. Keep a close eye to prevent burning!
