Use a medium sized bowl. Add:

  • 2 carrots, finely shredded
  • 2 zucchini, finely shredded
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or honey
  • 4 cloves
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup farro (used pearled or semi-pearled)

Lightly oil your crock pot to prevent sticking.

Pour into the crockpot:

  • Carrot/zucchini/farro mix
  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk

Set on low overnight (6 to 8 hours).  In the morning, scoop it out and top with chia seeds and walnuts.  I found that a little extra honey was needed, and that adding a banana made it much more delicious.

Serve with love!  Happy Valentine’s Day!

Not sure about farro? Me either, until I read this article by NPR’s Laura Weiss.  Make sure to check out her delicious recipe for Tuscan Soup and Kale Salad.
