I had honestly intended to write about homemade pop-tarts today. But over the weekend I discovered that pie crust is very delicate. So is sprouted flour. Try making pie crust with sprouted flour and you’ve got something so delicate that it’s unworkable. Seriously. It’s back to the drawing board with that one….
But I will continue my experiments, because I would so love to make some apple pies to freeze. And I’m going apple picking tomorrow, so I had better get on that! I’m thinking I will need to do something unconventional to make this work…hmm….
Anyway, on to today’s actual recipe. I’ll give you our current favorite smoothie recipe. I am loving it not only because it tastes great and has excellent nutrition, but it seems to be having the small (and wonderful) side effect of helping Daniel sleep. It’s so weird — if we have a smoothie in the morning, he only wakes 2 – 4 times at night and is easy to resettle. If not, he’s up 10 – 12 times and is hard to resettle, assuming I manage at all. There is something that boy is deficient in and it is in this smoothie. I suspect spirulina, but we’ll see.
1/2 c. orange juice (fresh squeezed is ideal; I don’t bother typically)
1/2 c. plain, whole, organic yogurt (homemade and raw even better)
1/2 c. or so frozen berry mix (I have blueberries, cherries, raspberries, blackberries in mine)
1/2 c. or less other fruit (I use peaches)
1 tsp. spirulina
2 – 3 raw egg yolks (from pastured chickens only, please!)
Add all ingredients to a blender and mix it up. Serve immediately. Makes about 2 cups.
We love it! What’s your favorite smoothie?
