The search for the perfect smoothie…

I’m on the lookout for the perfect smoothie.  If you find it, let me know, please. 

I don’t know a lot about smoothies but I do know this – the perfect smoothie does not have ice.  (I hate those little flecks of ice in a smoothie.)  It also doesn’t taste like protein powder or peanut butter even if it contains them. 

So far, this is the best I can get.

I really like the flavor of this one.  Most smoothies are tolerable, but not necessarily enjoyable for me.  This one, however… mmmmmm. 

So, give me your most delicious, non-ice, non-protein or peanut butter-tasting smoothies, please!

Pesto is a favorite lunch food at our house.  We especially love pepperoni pesto wraps.  They are super easy and a quick lunch. 

Spread your chickweed pesto on a tortilla, top with pepperoni and cheese.  Roll them up and pop them in the oven or the microwave to melt the cheese.

An Herbal Recipe: Chickweed Grilled Cheese…

HerbFairies-Chickweed4 One of the joys of homeschooling is getting to spend our mornings together at the park.  Every morning the kids and I take a walk around our local park for a little fresh air and exercise to start our day.  It was beautiful this morning and the dandelions were beginning to pop up along the trail in the grass.  A couple of the kids ran to pick a bouquet and they all agreed it’s been way too long since we last had dandelion fritters. 

My bunch absolutely LOVE eating dandelions. 

Do you ever eat the “weeds” in your yard?  Those pests are actually nutritious, delicious plants that can provide wonderful nutrients for your family!

Kimberly and Hailey share a recipe today using chickweed that you can probably find in your own yard.  This recipe, chickweed grilled cheese sandwiches, can be found in the free Herb Fairies cookbook you can get here. 

 

Look for more delicious herbal recipes right here this weekend!
