Hey there! I would LOVE it if you could spare 90 seconds to so that I can better serve you!

Gluten Free Banana Nut Waffles // These healthy & delicious waffles are the perfect way to start your morning. Made with oat flour, you can have your favorite waffles without any wheat! Topped with maple candied pecans and bananas, they are a treat you don't want to miss! | Tried and TastyI have been on a serious breakfast kick around here. Between my Orange Banana Breakfast Smoothie, 100% Whole Wheat Waffles, Tropical Fruit & Yogurt Parfait, & Strawberry & Banana Overnight Oats I’d say I’ve been giving you some pretty tasty options! Today is National Waffle Day and I’m back with some of my blogging friends to give you a selection of fantastic waffle recipes! If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw recently that I was sent an AMAZING new Blendtec Designer 625 Blender. Love, love, LOVE it! I’ve been a fan of Blendtec for years (if you haven’t checked out my Why I Love My Blendtec: Blendtec vs. Vitamix post, it’s a must read). I’ve had so much fun these past couple of weeks playing around with it.

You are probably wondering what my blender has to do with this recipe? Well, in the next couple of weeks I will be bringing you a pretty awesome series of how to make your own flours and nut milks. In these Gluten Free Banana Nut Waffles I actually made the oat flour as well as the almond milk that I used. It is SO easy to do and I can’t wait to share with some really fun posts AND a video! Stay tuned, you are NOT going to want to miss it. Until then, you can pick up some oat flour on the shelf or in the bulk bin section of your grocery store. You won’t want to wait to make these waffles. They are DIVINE!

Cucumber Kiwi Agua Fresca | Looking for a delicious green drink made without any artifical coloring, soda, sherbet or ice cream? This Cucumber Kiwi Agua Fresca is PERFECT for you! It's all-natural, delicious, and really simple! Try this refreshing beverage today!  // Tried and TastyHappy St. Patrick’s Day! One of my favorite days of the year. Why? Not because I’ve got Irish blood in me {because I don’t}, not because of the corned beef and cabbage {which would be a great reason}, not because I like leprechauns {although they are pretty cute}, but because it’s the day that is all about GREEN! Could I ask for anything more? A holiday centered around my favorite color. Wahoo! I wanted to bring you one last [not making any promises] green recipe for your special day.

I know there are all sorts of fun drinks and punch for this special holiday and they all have artificial food coloring, soda, sherbet, or ice cream. I wanted to provide an option that doesn’t have ANY of those! This recipe doesn’t even have any refined sugars in it. Could you ASK for anything more healthy? Between this and my Minty Lime Water {a.k.a. Virgin No Sugar Added Mojito} I don’t know which is better. Both are fantastic refreshing and delicious options. Make both and you decide which is better!

Tropical Green Smoothie // Taste the tropics with this healthy green smoothie! Great for breakfast, snack, or especially post-workout! The tropical flavors will send you back to the island as if you're soaking in sunshine and sipping on coconut! | Tried and TastyWe are creeping up on St. Patrick’s Day and what better time to share with you my Tropical Green Smoothie?! Green is my FAVORITE color, and it’s no secret. I pretty much tell any and everyone any chance I get. So naturally, you can understand how I’m drawn to smoothies like these BUT only if they taste good! when I was creating The Beginner’s Green Smoothie I wanted to make another next-level option and this one is fantastic! 

The best part about this particular smoothie is that there are no added sweeteners! It’s absolutely perfect with just the sweetness of the mango and banana. This would be perfect anytime, but especially great for your St. Patrick’s Day morning breakfast! Have you nailed down your menu yet for the holiday? Not only do I have have great green options for your ‘green’ options (including The Ultimate Green Salad and Minty Lime Water {a.k.a. Virgin NO Sugar Added Mojito}), but I also have for you my Mint Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding and of course Corned Beef Braid and Reuben Swirl Rolls. Basically, if you’re here on Tried and Tasty… you’ve got options!

Tropical Fruit & Yogurt Parfait // Want a quick and easy breakfast that will transport you to the tropics without leaving home? This Tropical Fruit & Yogurt Parfait will leave your tastebuds dancing like they're on vacation! Only five ingredients! | Tried and TastyI don’t know about you but I’m always wanting to be on vacation. Like always. Last December my husband and I went on a cruise with friends and were able to travel to the Southern Caribbean. It was nothing shy of amazing. The breathtaking views wiped all the cares of the world away. Life was easy, carefree, and simple.. for a couple of weeks. Often times I wish I could go back of course. Since I can’t, I like to enjoy this tropical parfait to taste the flavors of some of my favorite memories. 

Last Saturday I had the opportunity to present at the Salt Lake Home + Garden Festival at the South Towne Expo and showed four ways you can begin your day with a quick & easy healthy breakfast! During my demo, I made one of my favorite granola recipes, my Honey Almond Granola Recipe. Once I whipped that up, I made my Fruit & Yogurt Breakfast Parfait with Honey Almond Granola. I followed that with my Strawberry & Banana Overnight Oats. I then showed this tasty tropical recipe (which I think ended up being the favorite) and ended the demo with my Orange Banana Breakfast Smoothie. The point of the hour was to prove that with a little preparation you really can have a pretty rockin’ breakfast that’s not covered in sugar like the popular sugar-coated breakfast cereals or carb-heavy breakfast pastries that are all too often too convenient to grab.
