Let’s start the final easter week motivated and with my special and personalized Easter basket. Last Monday I’ve shared my favourite brunch places in Vienna, for alle the people who were looking for the perfect Easter brunch. If you’re not the type of person who’s in the mood to visit a brunch location this personalized Easter basket might be the perfect thing.
Since I’m in the last week of the Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide 2.0 – I still can’t believe I made it that far – I decided to stick to all the healthy rules that I have followed so many weeks now. My last workout will be on Easter Sunday and I decided to renounce all the yummy chocolate and easter treats. Since we’re going to be in Kraków for the Easter weekend, it is very likely that I’ll be put to the test. However, my will is stronger and with this healthy personalized easter basket I’m going to survive ;)
The Perfect Personalized Easter Basket Needs Carrots
There’s no easter brunch without some freshly baked croissants. I love to have them with cottage cheese or some jam and it also makes the perfect Sunday breakfast for me. I have bought some short pastry and formed little carrots. Instead of jam and chocolate I decided to fill them with some cottage cheese. To me it’s the perfect replacement of a croissant and tastes awesome with some fresh dill on top.
- short pastry – 1Pkg.
- 1 cup cottage cheese
- 1 bunch fresh dill
- Food colours: red and yellow to receive orange
Start by forming long noodles and as thin as possible. I used the tip of a piping bag to form the perfect carrot. Once you’re done colour your little carrots and put them in the oven at 180°C for 10 minutes (top/bottom heat). When the time is over, they should be perfectly brown with a hint of orange. Let them cool aside and stuff them with some cottage cheese.
What would be Easter without all those Easter eggs? Quite boring I would say, that’s why I swapped my yoghurt bowl for this little oatmeal treat. The surprise eggs from the supermarket are important as they come with those capsules that help you form the perfect egg.
- 2 ½ cups rolled oats
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 5 tbsp. milk
- 1 tbsp. peanut butter
- ¼ cup mini chocolate chips (optional)
- Sprinkles for decoration
- Plastic eggs
Mix all the dry ingredients in a small bowl together and put maple syrup, vanilla, milk and peanut butter in another bowl. Stir until mixture is combined and add the dry ingredient to the large bowl. Don’t forget to mix with hands. If you like you can add some chocolate chips too the finished mixture. Use a spoon and press everything into your plastic egg. Put the filled eggs in a bowl in the fridge for 45 min. Once you’re done be gentle when opening before you serve.
All these foods make a huge personalized Easter basket with lots of healthy stuff. If you’re a avocado lover like me, you can include in your basket too. If you have wondered about the caffeé latte: I added a slight amount of lavender syrup, as I’m a huge fan of lavender drinks since my honeymoon ;)
Have a beautiful day!
