Try this quick (10 minutes) recipe for Maple-Herb Roasted Walnuts. They are crunchy and sweet-savory, kinda like candied nuts but more flavorful. You can use just about any kind of nut instead of walnuts: pecans, almonds, cashews or peanuts. We like to put these on our leafy salads. The walnuts are especially tasty on lettuce with crumbled gorgonzola cheese and a simple olive oil + lemon juice dressing
Quick! Before summer is officially over and watermelons and peaches are just sweet memories, make at least one batch of this awesome smoothie! I used some leftover frozen agua fresca that I made last week, plus spinach, coconut milk and almonds. If you don’t have frozen agua fresca cubes, just substitute the ingredients that go into the aqua fresca (watermelon, peaches, ice) and you will have an amazingly delicious and easy smoothie

Sweet juicy peaches. Late summer lazy afternoons. Thunderheads building in the blue, blue sky. Perfect time for a peach pie. Especially if you are having a cooler-than-normal day when you can have the oven on and not bake yourself out of the house! Try this delicious peach pie and check out the Best Ever Pie Crust recipe too.
The Orange Brain Shake is legendary. It’s been featured on a television news broadcast. Also on many school mornings when my two sons were growing up. It’s one of the most popular smoothies I used to make at Florence Crittenton Home (for pregnant and parenting teens) and one of the most requested recipes from the girls after they leave the home. Simple to make, this smoothie has just 6 ingredients: oranges, almonds, lecithin, soy milk, ice and vanilla. Try it! I know you’ll love it
Want a super healthy, kid-friendly smoothie recipe that you can serve your kids for breakfast, lunch, snack or even a dessert? This Peanut Butter Chocolate non-dairy smoothie tastes like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, only better! I made this extra smoothie this week especially for Stephanie and her daughter, Kristina, at her request. I love that she is careful about her child’s nutrition, and remembers how delicious a healthy meal can be! You rock, Stephanie!
When it’s hot outside, a smoothie is the perfect breakfast or lunch. Rich in vitamins, fiber, protein and minerals, smoothies give you just about everything you need in a meal. This one is a true delight, sweet, cold, with an amazing mouth-feel. Tropical Guava Delight is a combination of guava, pineapple, lemon, coconut, vanilla and raw hazelnuts. Just right for a late summer day. Go for it! Yuh-Ummmm!
This delicious smoothie is inspired by memories of the agua frescas we drank on our travels in Central America in the 70s. Watermelon is the perfect refreshing fruit for a hot summer day. Combine it with mango and coconut milk and a half a lime for an amazing medley of flavors.
