I propose a Scottish dessert that offers a lot of energy. Scots are known for their iron health, especially due to sport. And when it comes to food, they carefully choose their most natural foods, being recognized as some of the most demanding in this regard.
Ingredients for the Scottish dessert: 1/2 teaspoon coconut butter or olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon agave or raw honey or Manuka nectar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 and a half oatmeal, 1 tablespoon hazelnuts or walnuts, 2 plums, 115 g frozen raspberries, 1/2 teaspoon rose water, 4 tablespoons skimmed yogurt.
Preparation mode: heat the coconut butter in a pan, along with the agave nectar and cinnamon. Add oatmeal and hazelnuts. Brown for 2-3 minutes, until slightly golden, then set aside. Squeeze the plums. Pour the juice into a blender, along with the remaining ingredients and oatmeal, and stir until it has a creamy and homogeneous consistency. Dilute with a little water if it is too dense.
Health benefits: hazelnuts are one of the richest sources of vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that helps neutralize free radicals that affect cells, weakening the body. Raspberries and plums provide fibers that support the health of the intestines, being full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that provide a good overall health. Manuka honey is antiviral and antibacterial, helping to heal wounds and maintain the health of the digestive system.
The Scottish desert fills you with energy
Oatmeal and walnuts in this healthy version of a Scottish dessert provide plenty of slow-release energy, as well as hunger-reducing proteins. If you want the drink to be gluten-free (for those with gluten intolerance), you can use buckwheat flakes instead of oatmeal. Especially hazelnuts are a rich source of protein, and are also rich in manganese, which stabilizes blood sugar levels. At the end you can add a stop of Scottish whisky, you can decorate with whipped cream and raspberries.
It’s delicious! Have a good time!
