Try these two tea and toast combinations to treat your taste buds. Simple, classic combos to enjoy morning, noon or night!
Strawberries and Chocolate? Let’s Toast to That!
Try this strawberry-chocolate-coconut tea and toast treat for dessert, or sneak it as a late night snack. This bread was toasted on the stove top with a bit of coconut oil, then slathered with chocolate spread and topped with fresh strawberries to satisfy your sweet tooth while still being nutrient-packed. Pairs well with caffeine-free Rooibos Tea.
What You’ll Need:
- Marathon bread (I purchased mine at Wegman’s, but you can make your own with this recipe)
- Chocolate-nut spread (try making Holly’s Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread)
- 2-3 Strawberries, in 1/2″ slices
- 1-2 Tsp. coconut oil
On medium-high heat, add 1-2 tsp. coconut oil to a small skillet or fry pan. After the oil melts down, add a slice of bread and flip it immediately to saturate both sides. Lower heat to medium, then crisp bread on both sides, gently pressing down on the center for even browning.
Remove excess oil with a dry cloth or paper towel. Spread chocolate-nut spread on evenly, then add sliced strawberries. Enjoy while warm with a cup of Numi Rooibos Tea.
PB & B Toast (for Kids at Heart)
My favorite childhood tea and toast pair of peanut butter and bananas is dressed up on market-fresh whole wheat nut bread with a touch of cinnamon and a drizzle of local honey for the perfect, nutrient-packed breakfast. It’s well balanced when paired with a warm cup of Numi’s Golden Chai for a spicy, nuanced finish.
What You’ll Need:
- Marathon bread (see previous recipe)
- Freshly ground peanut butter
- One banana
- A dash of cinnamon
- A drizzle of local honey
Spread peanut butter on a slice of bread, add diced bananas, plus cinnamon and honey to taste. Enjoy with a cup of Golden Chai, with a splash of almond milk if preferred.
Nutty, fruity, and naturally sweet.
