Lately, I feel as if I have been bitten by the travel bug. I constantly think of the foreign lands I want to adventure to, the sights I want to see and the food I have been dying to experience. I have read about European cheeses, French wine, distinguished Italian flavors and Greek cuisine but feel that I can not truly define their essence until I have traveled and immersed myself in their societies. One day I will plan this dream trip, but until then, I will just have to let it influence the foods that I try locally. This morning, I took a little inspiration from Europe, integrating Crofter’s Europe Superfruit Spread into my overnight oats.
In the bowl: 1/3 cup steel-cut oats, soaked in 1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1/3 cup Greek Yogurt and cinnamon overnight. In the morning add 1 TBS Almond Butter, 1-2 TBS Crofter’s Europe Superfruit Spread and 1/2 of a large banana.
The Europe spread was amazing! It is composed of black currents and pomegranate blended with morello cherries and red grapes. The black currents are the star of this spread. After mixing my bowl together I continuously found whole currents, and each bite provided an explosion of tart/sweet, decadent, and concentrated current favor. I love this in my cold oats, but think it would be even more amazing heated over ice cream, or pancakes!
