Instructions

Line a cake pan,
skillet, or springform pan with parchment paper. If you wish for pizza look than
I recommend a circular pan.

Combine

  1. The almond flour, cacao powder, chopped peanuts, PB2 powder, salt, the monk
    fruit syrup, vanilla extract, and coconut oil stir the mixture in between each
    ingredient addition.
  2. Using your fingers mix until it comes together into a sticky dough.
  3. Press the dough evenly along the bottom of the prepared pan. You may brush the bottom of the
    pan or a skillet so the parchment paper could stick better without moving.
  4. Chill the base in the fridge for roughly 10 minutes.

Filling:

  1. Using an electric mixer, combine softened cream cheese, whipped cream, Swerve sweetener, PB2 powder, and vanilla extract.
  2. Mix until smooth and thick in texture.
  3. Pull the pizza base out of the fridge and spread evenly filling then put it back in the fridge for ten more minutes.

Topping:

  1. Wash and pat dry berries, or any other the fruit you have chosen to use.
  2. Distribute fruit evenly on the top of the sweet filling.
  3. Dust with a bit of Confectioner Swerve and garnish with fresh mint.
  4. Allow to rest and chill in the fridge for approximately 30 minutes before serving.

Notes

  • You may use any sweetener that you prefer.
  • If you are allergic or sensitive to peanuts, please use alternative products such
    as unsalted chopped almonds, and
    PB2 Almond Powder The outcome will be
    slightly different but nonetheless very tasty.

Saving the Day with Danone® Products at Publix!

This post is sponsored by Danone North America. The opinions and text are all mine.

A Waffle Breakfast Board would not be complete without the signature sides of luscious fruits, yogurt, homemade granola, and jam.

Waffle Breakfast Board

My family loves a quick and easy meal, especially during the weekend, so we have been making some type of board every Saturday or Sunday.

This week we decided to create this graceful and gorgeous spread with the help of Danone. I was so enthralled by the way it turned out.

It is bright, tasty and popping with colors. There is truly something for everyone.

Danone has been a part of my family for a long time, and I continue to buy their products for myself all the time.

Their products are an amazing snack and are definitely a quick on-the-go breakfast, school, or work lunch essential.

Waffle Breakfast Board

With that being said, I’ve created many phenomenal desserts using Activia® and Two Good® yogurts, such as parfaits, making incredible salad dressing, using it in my baked goodies, and smoothies.

It is such a versatile product packed with delicious ingredients. I also picked up Stok® Cold Brew and So Delicious® Coconutmilk Creamer.

Also, if you spend $20 on participating products you will receive a $5 Publix gift card and a chance to win the grand prize, a Vitamix Blender.

I love the Save the Day Stack the Savings promotion at Publix because everyone loves an amazing deal, and Publix definitely has it.

You can purchase so many delicious products that you likely already use, so check it out. Do not miss this excellent opportunity, because it is a great one!

In addition to my Waffle Breakfast Board in the morning, ifyou genuinely love a good iced coffee and silky creamer, Publix has your back.

Stok Cold Brew Coffee

Well, I need my coffee hot every single morning, but my college son adores his coffee iced, no exceptions, with a generous amount of creamer.

Most of the time when he is home, I get him excellent Stok Black Unsweetened cold brew coffee.

As well as a complementary sweetener such as the rich andcreamy coconutmilk creamer from So Delicious.

They are both qualifying products for the Save the Day Stack the Savings promotion at Publix.

Creamer from So Delicious

Nevertheless, this iced coffee and creamer naturally makean outstanding addition to our Waffle Breakfast Board!

Easy and Quick Salad Dressing

When it comes to lunch or dinner, one of my favorite multi-purpose salad dressings is this incredibly creamy dressing using Two Good plain low-fat yogurt.

I sincerely love it with romaine lettuce, radishes, and cherry tomatoes.

Salad with Yogurt Lemon Dressing

However, if you have some tomatoes and cucumbers, this dressing instantly makes one delicious salad. Perhaps use it to make a pasta salad.

Also, serve it on the platter with vegetables like peppers, carrots, cucumber, etc., you would be surprised how tasty it is.

Yogurt Lemon Dressing

  • 1/2 cup Two Good plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • Salt to taste

DIRECTIONS:

Mix ingredients in one medium-size bowl. Set aside for about 15 minutes to allow all flavors to develop.

Gingerbread Cookies

Gingerbread Cookies

Gingerbread Cookies

Gingerbread cookies are the most popular cookies during the holiday Xmas season at my house. It is a shame that I never posted on my blog.

The thing is I always thought that there are so many recipes online why would you even make mine.

However, I decided to post all the holiday recipes because why not.

I really love making them with my kids. Well, I feel terribly sadden that they are growing so fast.

I just want to turn back the time and relive those days when they were little all over again.

Tap here for more tasty sweet recipes

Although, I am happy to see them grow into these amazing individuals. I am like every mother or a parent out there.

Anyhow, I really enjoyed making these this year and doing it with my youngest one.

He will turn 13 soon, so I am treasuring this time before he finds his mom boring. hahaha (sobbing).

Gingerbread Cookies

So, one fact about me that might not know before. I have never eaten these cookies before I came to the United States.

We have so many cookies that are served over the holiday season, but gingerbread cookies were just not traditional at all.

That being said, I love them. I like the taste, soft texture on the inside and crunchy on the outside.

You can use any cookie cutter to make different shapes and sizes. Of course, the most popular gingerbread cookie is Gingerbread Man.

Gingerbread Cookies

In my opinion, I love to make them in all shapes and sizes so I go crazy… maybe a bit too crazy.

I don’t have many cookies on my blog. However, I set my mind to start making different ones now that I am more comfortable around making baked goodies other than bread.

Jokes on the side, I am really getting better at making sweets and I am so very proud of that.

Gingerbread Cookies
Yield: Makes about 3 dozen cookies, depending on the size

Gingerbread Cookies

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Chill Time: 1 hour
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes

Gingerbread cookies are the most popular cookies during the holiday Xmas season.

Ingredients

  • 6 oz, 170g unsalted butter (one and a half stick)
  • 3⁄4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, slightly mixed
  • 1⁄2 cup original molasses
  • 3 cups, 360g all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon, 5.2g ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon allspice

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl or a stand-up mixer bowl, beat softened butter, brown sugar, and egg on medium speed until well blended
  2. Whisk the baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices into measured all-purpose flour.
  3. Gradually stir in dry ingredients until blended and smooth, but do not add more flour because the dough will firm up once it's chilled.
  4. Divide the dough in half, this way it will be easier to roll out, and then pat each half into a thick rectangle. Wrap well, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  5. The dough may be sticky and hard to roll if not thoroughly chilled, so make sure it's cold before continuing.
  6. Preheat oven to 375F (190C)
  7. Prepare baking sheets by lining with parchment paper.
  8. Place one wrapped dough portion on a lightly floured surface or use two plastic wraps, on the bottom and top, large enough to roll out dough. Roll dough to a scant 1/4-inch thick.
  9. Cut out cookies with a desired cutter; gingerbread man, flour, snowflakes, etc. Space cookies 2-inches apart because they will spread a bit due to the addition of baking soda.
  10. Bake 1 sheet at a time for 10 minutes
  11. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow the cookies to cool for a bit until they are firm enough to move to a cookie rack. After cookies are cool you may decorate them with traditional royal icing any way you desire.
