Preparation time: 5 to 10 minutes
Cook time: None
Yield: 1 serving
3 tablespoons brown rice protein powder
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt
1/2 teaspoon stevia
1 tablespoon flaxseed oil
1 to 2 tablespoons water
1 cup fresh or warmed peaches
1/4 to 1/2 cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon shredded coconut
Sprinkle of nut of your choice (optional)
1/8 teaspoon each cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon, or to taste
1 to 2 teaspoons of maple or agave syrup (optional)
In a bowl, mix the brown rice protein powder, ground flaxseed, cinnamon, and salt.
Add the flaxseed oil and water to obtain a dough-like consistency. If you’re steaming the peaches, you can use some of the warm water from the steamer.
Add the peaches, coconut milk, shredded coconut, nuts (if desired), and spices.
Drizzle with a small amount of maple or agave syrup if desired.
Flaxseed oil tends to go rancid quickly. Therefore, it’s best to buy only the smallest bottles and use within 3 weeks. You can buy several and preserve the extras in the freezer for up to one year.
