This smoothie really does taste like key lime pie. It has a strong lime flavor with a touch of sweet. The dates and almond milk bring out flavors you’d find in a crust like almond, vanilla and maple while the banana and avocado give it a creamy texture.
Creamy, Delicious, Bananas and Cinnamon! It’s like a dessert.
These bars are definitely a favorite with the kids. And of course the adults like them too. The nourishing and energy packed ingredients make them a great snack before athletic competitions or on hot days filled with lots of activity.
Homemade almond milk is more nutritious than what you would buy in the store, it tastes better, and it’s really simple to make.
This orange vanilla smoothie tastes like an orange creamsicle only with healthy ingredients that will boost immunity and give athletes the strength and stamina to compete and train like a champion!
My Chocolate Pistachio Energy Bar makes a convenient and healthy snack for all ages. I tested these bars with some 9- and 10-year-old kids at a soccer tournament and they were a hit! Plain old water and a Chocolate Pistachio Energy Bar is a healthy and efficient way to restore energy without resorting to high sugar sports drinks.
There’s nothing better than real whipped cream to top your favorite dessert or added to fresh or frozen fruit—a favorite at our house.
This recipe uses a touch of vanilla and local grass fed cream. If you can’t find a good local dairy that offers grass fed cream in your stores, Organic Valley does have a grass fed cream that I will use on occasion. Like most cream that comes from large manufacturers, Organic Valley adds gellan gum, an anti-settling agent, thickener and stabilizer to their cream. It’s not a necessary additive and cream that contains it doesn’t whip up as nicely as pure whipping cream.
Adding any kind of sugar to whipped cream isn’t really necessary, however my kids prefer it with a touch of pure maple syrup added for sweetness.
12 oz. local grass fed cream
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 – 2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup (optional)
Pour cream, vanilla, and optional maple syrup into a medium bowl and whisk on high speed until medium peaks form, about 1 minute. Do not over beat.
