Cherry Soft Serve and Hybrid Sweet Potatoes


Yesterday morning I whipped up another Cherry Soft Serve/Smoothie


Frozen Cherries, Banana, Almond Milk, and Ice




The finished swirled and layered result


With a fresh plump cherry on top 


But make sure you eat it quickly before it starts to melt!


Lunch was a slightly burnt Grilled Wrap


 Sauteed Spinach, Cottage Cheese, Chicken, and Red Onion


And like always, I put it in the George Foreman Grill, only this time I got distracted 
reading the horoscopes in yesterday's paper! ...hence the reason it got a little charred


Here's a new Sweet Potato/Yam we haven't seen on Snacking Squirrel yet


I found it at Red Barn Market, thinking it was 
a jumbo version of a Japanese Sweet Potato


But when I looked inside, it was orange! 


The ironic thing is that it tastes exactly like a hybrid of a

So pretty: I can only aspire to presentation like that.

After finally finding Japanese sweet potatoes I have become addicted to them: fourth day in a row I'm going to have them for dinner!

That lovely cherry soft serve parfait looks delicious! I love Japanese sweet potatoes but I've only seen the type that has purple in the middle.

Love the look of your oatmeal swirl in the cherry soft serve! Yum!

Your parfait is very stunning - love the vibrant colour from the cherry soft serve. And as always I am amazed by the flakiness of those grilled tortilla wraps.

Oh my gosh how'd you get to swirl?! That's beautiful! And looks soo good! One thing I have to say is that your wraps always look like something I want to eat (sans the meat lol). But seriously, they look so full of yummy bites. I love Japanese sweet potatoes... I wonder if maybe they mislabeled it? Or maybe it is a hybrid? Call in the experts! :p

XOXO!

Ahaha, I think it's too early in the morning for me to be reading blogs - I thought that first shot of the cherry softserve was a lung or a tongue or something!! I definitely need more caffeine. But I love how you swirled it; how did you do that?!

Hannah Bone said... [reply]

I quite like the swirl of your soft serve!

I always liked a bit of burnt crispness, your wraps always look so mouthwatering!
And your eats are always so colorful, you seem to have a rainbow for a diet :)

Your swirled breakfast looks so pretty!

Beautiful breakfast! I love the swirl effect.

Your grilled wraps always make me hungry!! Maybe one day I'll get a sandwich press...

That cherry softserve/overnight oats combo looks so pretty swirled! Love the presentation, it makes me feel hungry for breakfast already and I just ate dinner...

Lindsay @ The Lean Green Bean said... [reply]

Jayme said... [reply]

That is by far the best looking oats + smoothie combo I've ever seen. I'm loving the swirl! Perfect photo op.

The swirl is beautiful! I just froze a few bananas to make smoothies this weekend. I like your idea of cottage cheese in a wrap, haven't seen that before!

Aine @ Something to Chew Over said... [reply]

Yum I love the idea of cherry soft serve! I've only had it with bananas - this looks delicious :)

That panini looks INSANE, oh man like so good! I love the George Forman, makes any sandwich better!

I am amazed that you can tell the difference between two types of sweet potatoes enough to be able to spot a hybrid! That is impressive!
