A couple years ago, I FMD'ed a cinnamon roll recipe (The Pioneer Woman's recipe, which is the BEST on the planet) and I could not find a frosting for it. I pondered on it, wanting something light and tasty, not too sweet. I knew it would come to me, so I let it go. Today, as I made my Blueberry Lemon Donuts, I attempted a glaze but it did NOT work out like I wanted. I looked around my baking supplies and it hit me. Blanched Almonds. So I made the drizzle and realized as I tasted it, that it is not only versatile with flavors but with uses, and it would taste amazing on my cinnamon rolls! And my breads! And even pancakes!
This version is lemon flavored but you could add vanilla, cocoa powder, almond extract (tastes amazing on cinnamon rolls), orange zest, lime zest... so many choices!
1/4 cup blanched almonds
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 tsp stevia OR 2 tsp xylitol
Zest of a lemon
Juice of a lemon
1/4 tsp vanilla
Blend it all together in a high speed blender, until super smooth.
Whole recipe is 2 servings of healthy fat.
This is my collection of healthy recipes that are family friendly, tasty, easy and fun! All are SUGAR FREE, I use healthy fats, easy to digest grains and lots of veggies.

Sounds yummy!! Question - do you purchase almonds that have been blanched or is blanching them a process you do yourself?ReplyDelete

Have you froze the drizzle before?ReplyDelete
I only freeze meat and berries. I'm not sure this would freeze wellDelete
Do you think it would work with almond flour? Or is the flour too dry?ReplyDelete
I've not tried that, so I'm not sure.Delete
