Sunday Kitchen Experiments

Taking little bit of mental and physical relax this Sunday. Easy shakeout 5 mile run (8 km) in the morning followed by fun in the kitchen.

Breakfast Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/4 hokkaido pumpkin (cca 250 g)
  • 200 ml CHI coconut milk
  • 2 tea spoons of coconut butter
  • 1 peach
  • cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
First I cut up the pumpkin in pieces (without peeling it, only washed) and put it together with the coconut milk in my Catler mixer to create the puree. Then put it on the stove for some time to warm up and soften a little, add coconut butter, cinnamon and pinch of salt, finally added the cut up peach, just to make it warm but not cooked.

I have been lot into warm breakfast "porridges" with different ingredients lately. It should help balancing out and giving me strength for the whole day according to the Traditional Chinese Medicine and I have to say I really like how I feel after.


Paleo Banana Bread 
(recipe by Civilized Caveman)

Finally decided to give this my first try, again used my mixer, so pretty easy to get ready, about 10 minutes prep time and 45-60 minutes baking, easy peasy. Tastes like heaven!!! This might get addictive :o)

For the recipe options, I used coconut oil not grass fed butter and also coconut butter not nut butters. But this was only due to availability of what I currently had in my kitchen :) Came out just perfect, smooth texture, not too dry.
