Tasty Tidbits

Beautiful and Tasty Appetizer or Snack ~ Place three chunks (1 each of pineapple, banana and strawberry) on a toothpick. Dip one side into dark or white chocolate.  Place on wax paper and allow chocolate to harden.

Dip Strawberries in Yogurt and Freeze on wax paper.  You will get an amazing appetizer or snack!  Cut them in half while frozen for an even more beautiful presentation!

Veggie and Dip Cups ~ Using clear plastic bathroom cups or clear juice glasses, pour a few tablespoons of veggie dip into the bottom of each cup.  Add sticks of celery, carrots along with strips of red, yellow and green peppers for a colorful appetizer, salad, or snack.

Roast Green Beans with olive oil and fresh Parmesan.  Sprinkle with seasoned salt.

Roast Asparagus with grated lemon zest.  Sprinkle with seasoned salt.

Healthy Breakfast Smoothie ~ In a blender, process 2 ripe bananas, 2 cups ice, 1/3 cup yogurt, 1/2 cooked oatmeal, 1/3 cup almonds, and a little honey.

Fruit and Veggie Smoothie ~ In a blender or Vitamix, add: 2 cups filtered water, 1 Tbsp. coconut oil, 1 Tbsp. honey, 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice, 1 cup kale, 1 box strawberries.  Add a few blueberries to get rid of the green color, which may turn off most kids.
