Breakfast fit for Dessert or Dessert fit for Breakfast?

I can't believe how good I've been eating lately and without even trying! Either I learned to listen to my body or the noise it made was just impossible to ignore. For some reason I am not craving cookies, cake or chocolate for that matter. I think I had more than what I should have over the holidays and I am being forced to cleanse.  Well, the next recipe involves ice cream, not too healthy but you can always get either frozen yogurt or make your own ice cream by blending frozen bananas, I've tried it and it works!
My toast for breakfast phase has faded and I've moved on to oatmeal and a green smoothie.  Hope you try and enjoy this super easy recipe so delicious that it can be called dessert!

Dessert Oatmeal (for breakfast!)

1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup water or almond milk
Stevia, to taste
2 tablespoons raisins
1 tablespoon natural peanut butter, optional
1 scoop ice cream of choice
1 teaspoon Blackstrap molasses, honey or syrup of choice

Microwave the oats, water or milk, stevia and raisins 1 1/2 minutes. Swirl the peanut butter, top the warm oatmeal with the ice cream and molasses. 
Enjoy immediately. 

Pina Colada Green Smoothie

1 cup almond milk
1 cup water
2 cups green leaf lettuce
1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1/4 tsp coconut extract
1 tbsp ground flax seeds
Stevia, to taste

Blend until smooth and enjoy! (Yields 3 cups)
