So, because these are easy, you can have a photo tutorial and try to figure it out without words. Heh.
Oh, that was mean to just tease you with more yummy pictures?! Ok, here’s the written recipe. LOL!
- 4 Gluten-Free & Vegan Frozen Waffles you can do this with your own waffles, but it's faster this way--and my waffle iron broke in the making of this recipe, so, there's that. heh
- 1 banana
- 2 cups sliced strawberries
- 1 cup coconut milk whipped cream
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1 cup Fruity Pebbles Cereal
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Thaw waffles in toaster, as per directions.
Allow waffles to cool to the touch.
Roll waffles flat, gently, using a rolling pin or straight-edged glass. Be careful not to smash, but flatten. This should be a gentle process.
Flip a muffin tin over and gently fold the waffles into a taco-shell shape.
Place waffles in oven for 10 minutes.
While the waffles are stiffening in the oven, you can slice your fruit and make your whipped cream. Or, if you're like me, you'll be so tempted by the smell of the Fruity Pebbles, you'll bust-out a bowl and dig-in. Heh.
Remove waffles from the oven and allow to cool to the touch.
Fill with a layer of sliced banana, Fruity Pebbles, whipped cream, strawberries, Fruity Pebbles, blueberries, whipped cream, and Fruity Pebbles. In that order. Heh.
Set before your ravenous post-school-monsters and watch them melt into smiles and joy as they fill those hungry bellies. LOL!
