Travel season is officially here! When my family is away from home we still strive to stick with the traditional food style of eating that we enjoy at home. By eating the way we are accustomed we can help reduce any dietary distress and feel our best while we are out enjoying ourselves.
While sticking with traditional food is important to I don’t want to spend too much time preparing meals while away from home. Plus if in a hotel room we don’t usually have a kitchen. My eBook Real Food Hits the Road is 140 pages of our best tips, ideas, recipes, menus and more that we use when traveling that allows us to stick with our traditional foods diet.
Almond Meal Pudding is a delicious and quick dish that we enjoy often at home. It is made on the stove top and would be a great road trip food if you will be staying some place with cook facilities or a camp stove.
Since we often find ourselves in a hotel room with nothing but a coffee maker I developed this variation to Almond Meal Pudding to enjoy on the road. While it is slightly less rich than the stove top version it is still incredibly delicious and filling.
The recipe below serves one. I find it works best to make this in individual bowls- like instant oatmeal is made. You could mix this in a coffee cup or disposable paper cup also. Almond Meal Pudding makes a terrific breakfast, snack or dessert. We’ve even had it for supper!
Almond Meal Pudding- Hotel Room Style
2 tablespoons HOT water
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon honey or ½ teaspoon dry sweetener such as Sucanat
1 teaspoon molasses (optional)
Dash of salt
½ cup almond meal
In a bowl add oil, sweetener, molasses (optional) and salt. Pour hot water over and mix well using a fork or small whisk. When the coconut oil is melted or near melted stir in the almond meal. When combined allow to thicken for a minute or two. Serve topped with fruit (if desired) and heavy cream.
This works best with water that is boiling or near boiling. An electric tea kettle is ideal. An in-room coffee maker or the hot water in the hotel lobby will also work but may not completely melt the coconut oil. If desired, substitute butter or ghee for the coconut oil. I like coconut oil because, of the three, it melts easiest.
