Quick ‘n Easy Summer Smoothies

I know it’s the end of summer but gosh was it HOT today! It was the perfect day to blend some strawberry banana smoothies. Here’s a quick way to quench your thirst! You’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup of sliced frozen strawberries (I slice and freeze mine at least a day before or you can pick up a bag in your frozen food section)
  • 2 bananas (sliced in thirds)
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup water

Toss everything in a blender and blend away. We get 2 full glasses from this batch. Enjoy!DAWN - WIN_20140831_190135

 

Kids <3 Yummy Soft Banana Cookies

I always bake these cookies with the kids… They love smashing up the bananas. I’ve also tried adding walnuts for a banana-nut cookie alternative. Next time, I’ll try chocolate chips. These cookies are soft, I like to think of them as a cross between a cookie and a muffin. A muffie? At any rate, I think these are the easiest cookies I’ve ever made. And they are probably a healthy alternative for kids.
