I recently had the opportunity to speak at the 2008 Successful Mothering Convention at
the South Towne Expo Center. It was an amazing event put on by Media One and MANY
dedicated women. I spoke on children's nutrition and had a GREAT response!
For all those AMAZING mamas who were in my class, thank you so much for your enthusiasm
and support! Here are the recipes I shared in class. Hope to see you again next year!
Purple (Green) Smoothie
1 C packed spinach
2 C fresh orange juice
2-3 C frozen blueberries
Blend in a blender and serve immediately
1 C natural cocoa powder
1 C agave
Whisk until smooth and serve with tons of fresh fruit for dipping.
1 head romaine lettuce
1 pint strawberries
1 C frozen strawberries (thawed) [FORGOT TO WRITE "THAWED" ON MY POWERPOINT AT THE CONVENTION. THIS RECIPE WON'T WORK UNLESS THE STRAWBERRIES ARE THAWED! MY APOLOGIES TO THOSE WHO ATTENDED!]
1 T honey to taste
A splash of balsamic vinegar (optional)
Cut romaine into strips, arrange on 4 plates. Peel, section, and cut oranges into bite size pieces. Slice strawberries. Arrange fruit on top of romaine. Blend all dressing ingredients in a blender. If necessary, add a small amount of water to make blender run smoothly.
