I most definitely am going to incorporate some of these yummy eat to our menu!
Today I tried an experiment… I really wanted to get away from serving rice all the time. The kids love it but I thought it was time for a change. As I was preparing the couscous I was thinking there is no way these kids are going to eat this! So I pulled out the agave nectar and some raspberries and they ate it! Not saying they were asking for more haha but they ate it. I think next time I will put it in the fridge for a while so it is more like a dessert. When I served it this time, it was room temp.
They may need that extra bit of protein as well.
I use this recipe alot and the kids are always asking for more.
In a blender I throw in…
natural vanilla ice cream
natural peanut butter
Chocolate almond milk
and some honey.
I blend it and add more almond milk if needed to get the right constancy.
The kids really love this snack.
To make the roll ups I spread plain cream cheese over a large tortilla. Then I spread the carrot marmalade over the cheese.
I then roll up the tortilla and slice cross wise to make bite size pieces for the kids.
At Christmastime I put a little food colouring in the cream cheese to make it green and I use strawberry jam instead of the marmalade.
If you don’t like using food coloring the red jam with the white cheese looks nice too.
Not only do I love the smell as a body lotion it tastes great as a smoothie! hahaha =-)
The kids love the sweetness of this drink.
I found in the organic section of my local grocery store pineapple coconut juice. So, I made smoothies with the juice, vanilla greek yogurt, and a bit of natural vanilla ice cream. I threw it all in my little blender and then .. there ya go!
This spread is yummy on apple wedges, banana slices, or on crackers!
2 cups unsalted peanuts
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup raisins
I use a blender, but a food processor would probably work much better.
I start by adding the peanuts a bit at a time… blend until a paste is formed. Then I add the rest of the ingredients and blend until mixed together well.
I keep mine in the fridge for a week. ( If it lasts that long )
