5 Day Green Smoothie Challenge I was recently inspired by Holly to try out the whole green smoothie thing. I love vegetables even though I probably don't eat them as often as I should. I also had never tried making a smoothie with greens before, so I wanted to try it out-for fun and health. Day 1: I made a smoothie of 2 cups blueberries, 1/2 a banana, 2 big handfuls of spinach and 1 cup of water. Day 2: I made a smoothie of 2 apples (one gala and one granny smith), 2 big handfuls of spinach, 1 cup water and 1/2 cup crushed ice. Day 3: I made a smoothie of 1 cup raspberries, 1/3 cup coconut flakes, 2 big handfuls of spinach and 1 cup water. Day 4: I made a smoothie of 1 1/2 cups sliced peaches, 2 big handfuls of spinach, 1 tablespoon honey, 1/4 cup raw oats and 1 cup water. Day 5: I made a smoothie of 1 cup fresh pineapple chunks, 1/2 a banana, 2 big handfuls of spinach and 2 cups water. All berries and the peaches were frozen and slightly thawed before use.

FamilyStyle Food Two Blue Lemons: Lemon Blueberry Scones Direct quote: "These are vegan?" Yup! They are also quick, easy, and relatively healthful as scones go. (All things in moderation.) Since we've been having some real scorchers lately I decided to use fresh summer flavors - blueberry and lemon - but the possibilities are endless! Virgin coconut oil is my preference over margarine or canola oil in vegan baking because it is simply oil from coconuts, is minimally processed, and contains no additives. Ingredients:2 cups whole wheat pastry flour1/2 cup whole oats1 tablespoon baking powder1/4 teaspoon kosher salt1 teaspoon ground cinnamon1/3 cup vanilla bean sugar (or 1/3 cup raw sugar plus 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)Zest of 1 lemon1/2 cup cold virgin coconut oil1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)1/3 cup oat milk (or soy, almond, hemp, etc.) Preparation:1. (Jo-Ann, I'm still working on the Whole Foods recreation!)
Fragrant Vanilla Cake How Sweet It Is Pomegranate Yogurt Bowl Recipe I'm hoping this breakfast sets the tone for my entire day. I love the pretty pomegranate swirls intertwined with ribbons of a Turkish black pine honey a friend gave to me. There are little puffed BBs of quinoa, toasted sunflower seeds, some bee pollen, and creamy clouds of Greek yogurt. It was a fluke, with everything just falling into place after I reached for the pomegranate juice leftover from my ongoing juicing experiment. I can imagine cooking down a bunch of the fresh pomegranate juice to make a thick homemade pomegranate molasses the next time around, although I love the brightness of the fresh juice and the way it tangles with the honey and yogurt. Here's an ironic update - not two hours after writing this, I lobbed off a good chunk of my thumb using a mandolin. - More Yogurt Recipes - - More Pomegranate Recipes - - More Breakfast / Brunch Recipes - HS: After some experimenting with the juicer, I think pomegranates are best juiced by hand.

This Rawsome Vegan Life Happyolks Seeded Popovers Recipe The most delightful thing my oven produces is the popover. Gougères are a close second, but the popover wins for sheer drama. They're golden-crusted bready crescendos made from the simplest ingredients. Their crunchy exterior belies a billowy eggy interior that absolutely begs for a slather of butter or honey. Popovers are worth learning to make well. I'm going to talk a bit about technique down below, but before you dive down the rabbit hole related to then endless number of popover techniques that are out there, you really want to make sure your oven is on point. Before we get to the recipe, I'll mention that just about every variable related to making popovers is up for discussion - both related to the recipe and the technique. - More Sesame Recipes - - More Millet Recipes - - More Breakfast / Brunch Recipes - I use individual timbales here, but you can use a special popover pan, or muffin tin. Start by preheating your oven to 425F / 220C, with a rack in the low-center. Print Recipe
