NUT SPREAD & FRUIT CUTOUTS

nut spread and fruit cut out shapes for kids

This was FUN!! …..and chaotic!! 2 adults and 4 little ones in our small kitchen today to help Max with his Snax!!! His cousins came over to play and have lunch and we made nutella and pnb banana, strawberry tortillas then cut shapes out of them!

The kids all helped cut out their shapes and ate most of them before we even got them on the plates!! I needed a reason to buy nutella-I never have-and this was it!! Yes, I had some on my Ezekiel toast this am….no, I don’t feel bad about it.

To make:

Take 2 tortillas-whatever kind you like

Spread nut butter on one side-about 2 tbsp. (use any kind-peanut, almond, cashew, nutella…etc)

Top with thin sliced strawberries and bananas

Top with other tortilla

Use fun shaped cutters to make shapes or use a pizza cutter and make triangles if you don’t have cutouts!

Devour

Enjoy!!

xo,

A and Max

Little bit of everything Smoothie

little bit of everythything smoothie Collage

Bringing you a new smoothie idea EVERYDAY this week! You’re welcome!!! This one is great and you know sometimes you just want a little bit of everything in your smoothies and if you are anything like me then in life too!!!

Ingredients:

1 c unsweetened almond milk

3 tsp oats

1 tsp chia seeds or flaxseed

1 scoop or approx 20 grams of chocolate protein powder or 3/4 c plain greek yogurt

Few ice cubes

Fruit:

A few of each-strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, mangos, kiwi, blackberries and avocado

(I have frozen bags of strawberries, blueberries, pineapple and mango in the freezer, the avocado, blackberries and kiwi were fresh. Frozen fruit is the way to go as it is frozen at its peak and you don’t have to worry about it going bad in the fridge over time!)

I added some fresh parsley and then blended til smooth and creamy! I write this at 7:45 am and my smoothie was consumed at 5:30 am-I am still satisfied and full but will eat again with in the next hour by 9 am……as I am sure I will be ravenous again!!

Smoothies are a great way to get a balanced on the go breakfast as you can drink it in the car on the way to work or where ever your day may be bringing you!!

 

Enjoy!
