Hearty Green Smoothie

Hearty Green Smoothie

2 tablespoons flaxseed

2 tablespoons goji berries

4 dates

1 banana

1/4th of an avocado

2 cups leafy greens

1 cup frozen fruit (I recommend blueberries or strawberries)

3/4th cup soy or almond milk

3/4th cup water

Blend together. My stepdad freezes his greens so they last longer. Regular greens work too.

Banana Chocolate Oatmeal

Banana Chocolate Oatmeal

1/4th cup oats

1 banana

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 teaspoons honey

Sliced almonds

Milk

  1. Cook the oats with 1 cup water.
  2. Mix the banana, cocoa powder, and vanilla together. Add to the cooking oats.
  3. Add the honey and sliced almonds. I like the dry roasted honey almonds from Trader Joe’s. Pour milk of choice on top.

Spiced Peach Cobbler

Spiced Peach Cobbler

This is a perfect summer dessert. My mom and I served it with Soy Cherry Chocolate Chip ice cream from Trader Joe’s.

8 peaches cut into 8 slices

2 teaspoons cinnamon

2 teaspoons lemon juice

3 teaspoons vanilla

1 teaspoon nutmeg

½ cup honey or brown sugar

Mix together and pour into a baking dish. I top it with either my almond cookie dough or Williams-Sonoma Cobbler Dough.

Cook at 350ºF for 60 minutes. Check occasionally. Serve hot over ice cream.
