Raw Breakfast Crumble w/ Coconut Whipped Cream {Video}

Raw breakfast crumble

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! I hope everybody’s Saturday is off to a wonderful start. I’m currently sitting in my breakfast nook, sipping tea and daydreaming about the summer ahead. Can you believe June is less than a week away? It blows my mind. There will be plenty of good eats and a move to a new apartment that I can’t wait to decorate in various shades of pink. Speaking of good eats when it’s hot out, the last thing I want is a heavy breakfast. So let me introduce you to this Raw Breakfast Crumble with Coconut Whipped Cream.

I’m not the kind of person who follows different food fads but I’m madly in love with Medjool dates, which taste like caramel. In this recipe they are blended together with a combination of raw nuts, cinnamon and vanilla. Then you crumble the mixture over delicious fresh fruit like peaches, blueberries and strawberries. It’s healthy yet filling and taste a thousand times better than bland oatmeal. Watch the video above to see how’s it done!

After the second quarter, I lost interest and wandered over to the food table where I remained until the end.  Oh well! Enough about the Super Bowl, let’s talk about Valentines…
