Beachy Papaya Boats with Papaya Seed Drizzle

We’re getting all beachy today on Nutrition Stripped. Just picture yourself on sandy beaches, ocean sea water at your toes, and a Beachy Papaya Boats with Papaya Seed Drizzle in hand. I’m obviously trying to hold on to summer as long as I can, even though here in Nashville I don’t need to try that hard it’s been SO hot here lately! Nonetheless, even if you’re in the middle of fall or winter for all my international readers, you can still enjoy this recipe to bring a little of the tropics and beachyness to your side of the globe with this recipe.

Beachy Papaya Boats with Papaya Seed Drizzle has been a recipe I’ve been making for a couple summers now, since I started enjoying papaya, and have come up with several variations using these unique tropical fruits. The center of the papaya is hollowed out so we can squeeze more goodies inside such as, fresh avocado, hemp seeds, juicy figs, crunchy cashews, and a dollop with Sweet Cream. They’re truly a dessert for breakfast kind of thing… or breakfast for dessert- however you look at it, it’s delicious!

Grilled Peaches & Sweet Cream with Crunchy Bits

Grilled Peaches & Sweet Cream… with crunchy bits. Oh yes, the sweet cream is amazing, but these Crunchy Bits completely steal the show. I always am flooded with ideas and inspiration from peaches during the summer months, we have our favorite peach providers (a.k.a. the Peach Truck) here in Nashville during the summer and I utilize every day I can get my hands on those peaches! Today I’m sharing a recipe that can be enjoyed for both a breakfast, brunch, or dessert.

Grilled Peaches with Sweet Cream & Crunchy Bits

As much as I’m a fan of the Crunchy Bits in this recipe, the Sweet Cream is incredibly delicious as well and dense with healthy fats, protein, fiber, and is completely dairy-free and refined sugar free. I use both macadamia nuts and cashews with coconut milk, dates, vanilla, and a touch of sea salt to create a delicious cream. Both the Sweet Cream and Crunchy Bits are rich, therefore pairing it with an untouched fresh peach, warmed through on the grill, is the perfect balance between sweet, creamy, light, and rich.

Cherry Cardamom Bircher Muesli

It’s summer. I’m taking every chance I can at incorporating my favorite summer fruits and vegetables this time of year and enjoying them in everything! Last summer I shared a delicious Tart Cherry Chia Pudding that oozes cherry flavor; today I’m sharing a unique twist on my classic Nourishing Muesli, Cherry Cardamom Bircher Muesli. This recipe has quickly become my favorite summer breakfast and even dessert, it’s raw- no fuss with cooking- easy to digest, tastes amazing, contains fiber, protein, and packed with antioxidants from the cherries.

I love this combination of flavors in this bircher muesli, it’s sweet, tangy, cool and warm at all the same time from the warming spices used and the way it’s prepared. I love adding traditional ingredients to this recipe such as lemon juice, oats, fruit, and nuts/seeds with a global twist by incorporating cardamom. Bircher muesli this time of year is lovely, it’s cool and refreshing since there’s no cooking or heating involved. It contains a healthy dose of fiber, healthy fats, plant-based protein, complex carbohydrates, and is incredibly simple to whip together. You can even make this for a quick breakfast by making it the night before and storing it in the fridge until the next morning.

Mulberry Soaked Oat Porridge

If you’ve been keeping up with me on Instagram, then you know my new amazing discovery in our yard… mulberry trees galore! I’ve found about four luscious mulberry trees surrounding our home each one dropping heavy juicy mulberries by the minute. This Mulberry Soaked Oat Porridge was inspired purely from these gorgeous trees in our yard. Although it’s been quite some time since I’ve had fresh mulberries,  I use dried mulberries throughout the year when fresh isn’t in season in my smoothie bowls, muesli, and snacks. Mulberries are beautiful fruits to be added to a wide variety of dishes, but I particularly love them with breakfast and hearty porridges.

Growing up, my family had several mulberry trees and I specifically remember the journey it took to get my little hands on those purple gems, it took skills of climbing trees, hopping fences, and finally reaching the long branches filled with mulberries. I would always be so proud at the accomplishment of grasping and picking them off the tree and having my own treat foraged, with purple stained fingers and mouth taboot.

These Carrot Cake Tahini Pancakes are not only gluten free but also vegan. I’ve had so many requests from all of you out there to do a vegan variation of my pancakes and today that’s what I’m here to share! These cake-like, sweet and chewy pancakes are filled whole food ingredients such as sweet bananas, carrots, nuts, cinnamon spices, and nutty tahini paste.

Carrot Cake Tahini Pancakes {vegan} // nutritionstripped.com

I’ve always loved carrot cake and tahini has been a kitchen staple of mine for years, so blending the two of these came very naturally. I love pancakes all day long, for breakfast, lunch, or dinner but sometimes you need a different topping than good ole’ maple syrup and tahini is the beez neez. It’s loaded with vitamins and minerals especially calcium, magnesium, and zinc. These Carrot Cake Tahini Pancakes are not only loaded with minerals, but also contain a good amount of plant-based protein and fiber, perfect to add into a vegan lifestyle.
