What a beautiful day in Boston!

Seriously, Mother Nature, what is going on with the weather? I’m starting to get seasonal depression from this supposed “summer”! 😕 Ick.

With this type of weather for the millionth day in a row, I needed something to brighten up my morning. I got a package of Nasoya Silken Creations the other day, so I thought it would be a nice treat in my morning bowl of oats. Nasoya Silken Creations are a non-dairy starter for smoothies and desserts, but why not in oats, too? Hey, I’ll try anything once! 😉

The vanilla-flavored Nasoya Silken Creations made an excellent addition to my oats! With a banana thrown into the mix, they tasted like banana cream pie! Delish!

The vanilla Nasoya Silken Creations tastes like rich, creamy pudding. I can see how it could be easily combined into dessert and smoothie recipes. It’s even a decadent treat right out of the package– I stole a few bites while waiting for my oats to cook!

Nutritional Info for Nasoya Silken Creations

In the mix:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup Nasoya Silken Creations
  • 1 banana, sliced

I skipped my usual iced coffee this morning and drank tea some special tea from our trip to the Fairmont Empress. It was a wonderful breakfast for a gloomy day like today.
