Super Fruit Smoothie

On days that are busy, but you want nutrient dense foods, I whip up a smoothie! With smoothies, there really is no measuring. So, below, is approximate measurements. You really can't go wrong!

First, I use these mixes:

I put about a scoop (1 TBSP) of each
I use Almond Milk (Homemade) or Coconut Milk as my "base"
(About 8-16 ounces depending on how much "smoothie" you want)
I use about 1-2 cups of Organic Frozen Mixed Berries
I use a handful of Spinach or Kale (remove stems) or both!
For more sweetness you can add a banana or honey

Mix well. Key!

Then I will serve in a fun glass :) The left overs get frozen into popsicle molds OR small glass Pyrex containers. This is one of our "convenience foods". Grab out of freezer and GO!  This is also our "ice cream".
Talk about HEALTHY! You can eat this every day and feel amazing!



Wishing you peace, health and happiness!

Guacamole

This is one of the best go-to recipes for multiple purposes! You can use it as a side, as a topping, as an appetizer or a meal! I make Guacamole once a week! Super nutrient dense food!

In a bowl add:
1/4 small organic onion chopped
2 ripe organic avacados pitted and smashed

2 Organic Roma Tomatoes diced or 1 cup of cherry tomatoes diced
4 organic garlic cloves diced
Juice of 1 lime
Splash of Apple Cider Vinegar (1/4 tsp)
Cilantro (use as much as desired)
1-2 Organic Jalapeno cored and diced
½ tsp Celtic Sea Salt

Mix all ingredients together and chill.

You can also place all ingredients in a food processor for a creamy guacamole.

Optional: ¼ tsp Paprika

Also, you can make a guacamole veggie wraps by topping romaine lettuce with guacamole and add cucumber.
