Fruit Smoothie-with hidden ingredients including avocado

What You Need: See ingredient sidebar for photos and WHY I use the ingredients I do

1-1/2 cups Fage Total Fat plain yogurt

1/2 Banana

5 Frozen Strawberries

Handfull of Frozen Blueberries

Quarter of an avocado

Coconut Milk Unsweetened-around a cup (I honestly just guestimate this.  If you want it thinner use more, thicker use less)

Throw it all in the blender, I use a Ninja blender, and a ninja it is.  It sounds like a straight team of ninjas coming through my kitchen, but it does make a damn good smoothie 🙂

*I use frozen fruit to make it icy

*I give him a straw because it is easier to drink and avoids a hot mess of a spill

* I Also sneak in 4 capsules of fish oil made for kids (has some citrus flavor)

To see these products, learn where to get them and more importantly to learn WHY I use them see sidebar titled INGREDIENTSImage

2 eggs

1/4 cup coconut milk unsweetened 

1 Heaping Tablespoon of Coconut flour

Cinnamon-just shake a little in there 🙂

Coconut Oil

Truvia-to sprinkle over pancakes

In mixing bowl mix: eggs, coconut milk, coconut flour, and cinnamon.

Heat pan to medium and use a pan safe brush to lightly coat pan with coconut oil.  Pour batter into pan and you will see the edges start to firm up.  Gently lift the edges to check underneath like you would a regular pancake, flip once.

To eliminate high loads of sugar instead of using syrup, or even organic maple syrup I sprinkle truvia and cinnamon on top of the pancakes.  He ALWAYS asks for seconds

Note: These pancakes don’t get dark brown like regular pancakes, they stay a lighter color.
