Green Machine Smoothie
½ c. plain yogurt (raw is best)
1 c. fresh spinach (washed, no need to dry, pressed down)
1/2 c. fresh pineapple (or frozen)
1 frozen banana (or fresh)
3 ice cubes
Mix it all up in a blender, making sure that the yogurt is at the bottom of the blender for best mixing. Refreshing!
Peanut butter granola bars
Mix wet ingredients:
1 c. natural peanut butter, unsweetened (or any nut butter like almond or cashew)
½ c. agave nectar (or honey)
¼ c. coconut oil or butter, melted
¼ c. warm water
Mix dry ingredients:
½ c. shredded coconut, unsweetened and unsulphured
3 c. rolled oats
½ tsp. salt
3/4 c. mini dark chocolate chips
Combine everything and stir it up well with a big spoon. Spread into small greased (w/butter or coconut oil) pan. Score pan of bars into pretty small squares, because these bars are rich. Refrigerate overnight for nutritional soaking benefits to the oats. No baking.
I like to pry each one out of the pan when they are good and cold, and place into an airtight Tupperware kind of container so that I can store them in the freezer (or frig.) and just grab ‘em and go as needed rather than cutting each one along the way.
