Summer is one of my favorite times for food. All the Farmer’s Markets are overflowing with fresh herbs & honey…& all the fruits that are in season…just one of the many reasons to be a fan of Summer. So I have been playing around with some ideas of how to use all the fresh herbs!! And today I came up with the Peach+Arugula Quesadilla and Fresh Mint Chocolate Frozen Yogurt/Ice Cream
It’s a low calorie option that literally takes a few minutes to create!!!
- Peach + Arugula Quesadilla
- 1 sliced peach
- 1/2 cup arugula
- 1/4 cup or less of mozzarella
- Few pinches of dried oregano/basil
- 1 whole wheat tortilla shell or shell of choice
Once done, top with your favorite salsa! I chose peach mango salsa…mmmmmmmhmmmm.
Some people grill up the herbs and peaches before adding to meals but this was a quick easy way to eat a healthy lunch that packs flavor! Adding grilled chicken/bacon/turkey bacon would be delicious too!
It only took about 5 minutes to create and cook y’all!!
Now for dessert…
- Fresh Mint Chocolate Forzen Yogurt/Ice Cream
- 1 cup frozen yogurt/ or 1 cup almond milk
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder or dark chocolate
- Handful of fresh mint leaves
Combine ingredients into a bowl or straight to blender and bam! That easy!! If choosing the frozen yogurt option you should be able to eat right away or make a smoothie out of it. But I suggest letting it thicken in freezer.
If choosing the Almond Milk option for homemade ice cream…blend all the ingredients and freeze! Then you’ll have a delicious cup of minty goodness to go along nicely with your quesadilla!
Top with dark chocolate pieces, almonds or coconut flakes!!
This was my lunch today folks. And I like my quesadilla a little crispy and my nails are always chipped..because I’m a mom and have to wash my hands like 2,000 times a day from all the things I do!! 😉 so hang tight with me on the fancy photos. Just a lady in her kitchen trying to keep it healthy!
But I promise this will keep you satisfied and so easy & fun to make! And best part of all is how healthy it all was. Plus took next to no time to feel like I was a master chef. 😉
Have a good day everyone!! Much love!!!
