We go through stretches in our house when we eat tons of rice cakes and we also have rice cake droughts. I was recently gazing into our pantry and checking out a bag of rice cakes that was looking sad and lonely. My slight obsession with transforming one type of food that miiiiight be labeled as “boring”..Read More
My husband makes a Lemon Drop drink that I have not yet shared here (soon!). He came up with this simple syrup recipe to use for his trademark drink because neither one of us loves that suuuuper sugary version of simple syrup. Plus, all that refined sugar!Read More
What is it about the month of May? It's always such a crazy month, packed with totally fun and good things. Between getting our pool open for the season (this is such a major pain) and going to track and field days and squeezing in..Read More
If our lives had a title right now it would be The Walls Are Closing In. School snacks, backpacks, stacks of papers and piles of laundry litter our RV. There are many signs letting us know this mobile chapter of our lives is coming to a close.Read More
I haven't posted a kid-friendly recipe in ages, which is totally silly considering I spend a good chunk of my waking hours preparing meals and snacks for two very picky but cute kids. It's funny how this yummy little recipe fell into my lap.Read More
My eyes are burning! Thank goodness for the cup of coffee that sides to my right. Buddy has been awake since 5:00 and my cutie boys were eager to start the day shortly after that. Before 8:00 a.m. we: had breakfast, did a load of laundry, had an adventure at the..Read More
Nice weather is (mostly) here, and that makes me one happy girl. At this very moment I am working outside while my little boys run around and play "castle" in our bushes. I have longed for this moment for seven months and it is finally here! Pinch me!Read More
This juice might look scary to little ones, but it is DELICIOUS! And HEALTHY! Drink up!
The only reason I have labeled this juice as "scary" is because that was my three-year-old's reaction to it. When I asked him if he wanted to try a sip, a frightened look came over his face and he said, "No, thank you!" as he ran quickly into another room. At least he was polite about it! As scary as it might appear to a toddler, it is honestly far from it.
I'm not always good about eating fruit in the winter, so this is an easy and totally yummy way to drink some good vitamins and nutrients.
Place the following ingredients into a food processor:
1 cucumber, peeled and cut into chunks
3 kiwis, peeled and quartered
2 handfuls of fresh spinach
1 apple, peeled and cored
A long drizzle of honey
Process until smooth, chill and enjoy your non-scary Scary Juice!
