good-for-you treat!


today i made this fun little healthy treat for the kids.  it’s basically just a made-up recipe, and i don’t typically measure when i’m cooking.  (not that i’m against measuring, just not how i roll, usually…)  anyways.  my kids LOVE bananas sometimes, and other times their interest begins to wane.  lately they have been more disinterested, but this?  this they loved. 


1 banana
1/2 an avocado
freshly squeezed lemon juice.  (give 1/2 a lemon a good squeeze)
a splash of apple juice
a mitt-full of ground flax seed
honey to sweeten

stick it all in the blender. blend until smooth.

the kids liked this both in a cup with straws, OR in a little bowl with spoons.  it has the consistency of yogourt. 

you could add milk, soymilk, almond milk (which is my new fave after reading that soy milk is not as great as once was believed.  anyone else hear this???  is it true?) 
anyways, i just wanted to share a very yummy and healthy treat that the kids love.  they just finished a whole blender-full and asked me for more.   sure, why not?

  4. Soy is perfectly fine. Eveything in moderation (well, except milk with Bovine Growth Hormone and meat laden with antibiotics–hee hee).

  5. An urgent request– pls read my latest post and pray for a little mozambican orphan named tino.

  6. ooh im making that today!

    i am rather freaked out by soy personally. ive read quite a but about it and it just doesnt sit well with me. try googling “the dark side of soy” for a good article on it from mothering magazine.

  7. yeah, its so hard to know what’s “true”… so many articles saying so many things.
    no more soy milk for my kids.

    new mom, i’m headed over to your blog right now.
