chai-spiced no-oatmeal

Today marks the first day of Fall! I have to say that despite being a warm weather girl  at heart, there’s something about the crisp Fall air that I love. Not to mention, seasonally it is such a wonderful time for fresh, local produce. Apples, squash and grapes, specifically Coronation grapes, have you tried these? Do so!

My breakfasts for Fall generally consist of something warming like oatmeal. But with my recently launched Fall ReBoot Detox ebook, we will be avoiding grains for 7 days which is why I have included the Chai-Spiced No-Oatmeal recipe found below. It is perfect for breakfast and is nourishing, fibre-rich and detoxifying!

Chai-Spiced No-Oatmeal

1 medium acorn squash
1/2 can coconut milk
1 tbsp hemp seeds
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cardamom
1 apple, diced
raw honey, to taste

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Cut acorn squash in half. Fill a roasting pan with 1 inch of water and place squash flesh-side down. Roast for 45 mins or until very soft. Scrape out seeds and discard. Spoon squash into a food processor. Add coconut milk, coconut flakes, chia and spices. Blend until smooth and top with diced apple, sweeten with raw honey.

This sounds fantastic! Oats don’t do so well in my system so I will definitely be making this! This is for one serving right?

It can be one large serving or two smaller ones, depending on the squash size :)
