creamy avocado & sweet potato soup

This soup is seriously the PERFECT winter pick-me-up.  I made it a few weeks ago and I am obsessed.  I’m not gonna lie, I was really proud of how good it turned out haha.  Especially because I just threw random ingredients together and hoped for the best.

 

runorshine sweet potato soup

Ingredients

  • 2 large sweet potatoes (or 3 small ones)
  • 3 cups of chicken broth (or veggie broth if you prefer that instead)
  • 1-2 cups quinoa (cooked)
  • Garlic
  • Pepper
  • Sirracha
  • Avocado
  • 1 cup Almond Milk

Directions

  • Skin sweet potatoes and chop up into smaller pieces
  • Boil sweet potatoes until soft (usually ~10 minutes will do the trick!)
  • Drain sweet potatoes
  • Throw the sweet potatoes in a blender & add the broth
  • Blend until smooth
  • Pour soup back into pan
  • Add 1 cup of almond milk. (You can also substitute cream but it’s obviously not as healthy!)
  • Add cooked quinoa to soup (I prefer a lot of quinoa but you can obviously add less or skip all together)
  • Add garlic, pepper and sirracha to taste (The sweet & spicy is the perfect combination!)
  • Top with sliced avocado & enjoy!

healthy blueberry oatmeal muffins

ROS-muffins

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 4T butter – softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup plain Greek Yogurt – I used Chobani
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup old fashion oats
  • 1/4 cup stevia
  • 1/4 cup agave
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

 

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 375
  • Line a muffin pan with 10 tin liners
  • Mix softened butter, stevia, agave, eggs and greek yogurt
  • In a separate bowl, mix baking soda, baking powder, oats and flour
  • Slowly combine ingredients while stirring
  • Add in blueberries last.  I like to mash up the blueberries beforehand so that they mix well with the batter.
  • Pour batter into muffin tins
  • Bake for 17 minutes, checking periodically to make sure they don’t burn. (everyone’s oven is different!)

 

 

I got home from work today and I was really in the mood to experiment in the kitchen.  I based this recipe off of the banana muffin recipe (coming soon!) that I usually make and I was so pleasantly surprised with the results.  I love breakfast pastries – especially muffins.  Unfortunately I rarely buy them at coffee shops or bakeries because I know they’re all sugar.  This recipe is great because I not only used stevia and agave instead of sugar, but also oats and whole wheat flour instead of white flour.

 

They’re seriously yummy.  Not gonna lie – I ate two for dessert tonight.  I couldn’t even wait for breakfast.  Oops! : )

 

Let me know how they turn out for you!
