I’ve always wanted to try sweet couscous. But somehow I’ve always chosen hearty couscous dishes like couscous salad on sweet couscous. Now I finally did dessert bowl of couscous with cinnamon plums, pomegranate and almond butter. And it turned out so delicious and comforting!
It should be served hot with a good pinch of cinnamon and a glass of almond milk or green tea. Delightful! I’m a big fan of couscous, mostly because it’s super easy to make. It has definitely become a staple in our kitchen over the past couple of years. I love making a simple couscous salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, and lots of fresh parsley for barbecues and picnics. And it’s also great with ratatouille or curry.
Obviously you could also call this couscous dessert bowl a couscous breakfast bowl. And isn’t it just amazing that you can have dessert for breakfast and still eat super healthy?! If you want it to look a little fancier, for example for Thanksgiving or Christmas, you can also serve it in dessert bowls and create several layers of couscous and fruit. It’s also super delicious with homemade coconut whipped cream.
I’m not usually much of a breakfast person. Most of the time, I’m perfectly happy with my daily green smoothie with kale, bananas, and maybe some berries and ginger. But now that it’s getting colder I like to have a hot breakfast. These are usually overnight oats or millet porridge with fruit, but this fruit couscous was a great change! I just checked the weather app on my phone and can you believe it’s supposed to snow on Wednesday and Thursday?! Snow in early November just doesn’t sound right! I definitely anticipate more hot breakfasts to come…
The night before making this breakfast bowl of couscous, Flo and I just whipped up a fresh batch Almond Butter, so of course I had to add it to the sweet couscous. We used our blender to make this and while it always comes out super creamy, I always swear it’s the last time we make this at home. It just takes forever to make almond butter with our blender (we have an Omniblend V). But it’s so much cheaper than buying it at the store and I love the feeling when it’s finally done and you have this super smooth nut butter… Haha!
I hope you enjoy this couscous dessert bowl as much as I do. Happy start of the new week everyone!
