blogger-image--333294641Everything I make is typically “Big Batch”. Partly because of the size of my family and partly because I figure if I’m in the kitchen I might as well get a bang for my buck. So the majority of the recipes I post will give you enough to enjoy immediately and some to freeze for later.

1 cup almond butter
1/4 c Nutella
5 heaping Tbsp natural cocoa
1 heaping scoop vanilla protein powder
1 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (optional)

How to get your little ones to eat their vegis…

 

 

Every family has at least one child that absolutely refuses to eat their veggies. Mine is Kristyn. Anything that is green, she resolutely refuses to ingest, even if we bribe her with dessert. There is one exception, juicing. If I juice just about anything and mix it with carrot or apple juice, she will drink it.

This morning she drank carrot apple lemonade. It is so yummy. We make a pitcher of it in the morning, and it is gone by the end of breakfast.

 

Here is the recipe.

 

2 carrots

1 apple

1/2 lemon

 

Wash everything. Don’t peel the apple or lemon. (Try to get organic) If you cannot get organic, peel the lemon, put leave the pithy part (the white part). Put the apple and lemon in the juicer and then push thru with carrots.

 

Drink immediately. If you cannot drink immediately flash freeze in the freezer for about 5 min. and then put in the fridge.

 

Be blessed

Chanelle 🙂
