Almond Milk Tropical Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c frozen pineapple 
  • 1/2 c frozen mango
  • 1/3 of a frozen banana 
  • almond milk (I use silk original)
  • Unsweetened coconut chips (optional)

Add the fruit to the glass you will be drinking it out of. Fill almost to the top with the almond milk. Dump into a blender, blend till smooth. Pour back into glass. Top with coconut chips (optional). 

You can also use water instead of almond milk and just add a sweetener like juice concentrate or honey. 

Whole Wheat Banana Bread

This is an easy Banana quick bread that my kids love to eat when they get home from school!

Add all ingredients to a large bowl and stir well

Pour into a greased 9×5 inch loaf dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and nuts.


Bake at 325 for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the dough. If the top is getting too brown cover loosely with foil for the last 5-10 minutes.

Serve with plenty of butter! Enjoy!
