Don’t you love recipes that can be served any time of the year and that always make people swoon? Fruit Pizza is one of those recipes. I see this dessert/appetizer/party food at summer parties just as often as I see them at holiday gatherings.Read More
We got a thick blanket of snow overnight and I am loving it. I might sing a different tune a few months from now, but it's so pretty out there and the cold is exhilarating. I promised my boys some snow play time after school today, so I am getting geared up for forts and snowmen!Read More
Do you ever take a series of photos of a particular food and forget that you took them? Only to find them, weeks later, screaming out to you from Lightroom? That's exactly what I did to these parfaits. And I feel terrible because they were delicious. I hope they can find it in their crunchy, creamy, fruity hearts to forgive me.
I had made this delicious granola as one of my challenge recipes, and knew that I wanted to throw it together with some other ingredients to create some sort of parfait. I pondered these parfaits in my sleep. I do that every so often. Ponder food in my sleep.
Here's what I did.
I purchased two of those convenient little 6-oz. containers of Greek yogurt and mixed about a tablespoon of honey in each container.
I put the yogurt-honey mixtures into the bottoms of two separate tall glasses.
I put a few spoonfuls of granola on top of the yogurt.
For the top layer of one parfait, I mixed together:
1 kiwi fruit, chopped
1/2 of a mango, chopped
1 pineapple slice, chopped
For the top layer of the other parfait, I mixed together:
4 strawberries, sliced
1/4 cup of blueberries
1/4 cup of raspberries
Easy, delicious breakfast served! Just like that.
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!
