Cherry-Almond Smoothie

We plowed through a bag of frozen cherries from Costco recently making these yummy smoothies. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  • 1/2 banana (you can use fresh or frozen)
  • 1 TBSP honey
  • 2 TBSP almond butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup frozen cherries
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt (we used So Delicious plain unsweetened coconut yogurt)
  • 2 TBSP milk (we used unsweetened vanilla almond milk)

1. Puree banana, honey, almond butter, and salt together until smooth.
2. Add remaining ingredients. Puree until smooth, scraping down sides as needed. Enjoy!

And honestly, sometimes I just throw it all together in the blender at once rather than taking two steps to mix it up.

Gooey Banana Bread Batter Instant Steel-Cut Oatmeal

This is a recipe that comes from the oh she glows website. Honestly, my food processor was dirty, so I skipped grinding the oats into flour and I just made it with the whole steel-cut oats. Still delicious. Here’s a link!

WORLD: Frosty Banana and Peach Kinda-Like-Ice-Cream

This was originally a recipe for some kind of sauce, but when the food van brought us a load of peaches, Buffy and I ate this just like ice cream. You’ll need a sturdy blender or food processor.

1 cup chilled or partially frozen chopped peaches
1 ½ cups sliced frozen banana
2 tsp lemon juice or 1/8 tsp unbuffered vitamin C crystals
1-2 tsp light agave nectar or honey (optional)

Place the peaches in the blender. Process for 10 to 15 seconds, or until pureed. With the blender running, add the banana slices, a few at a time, until all are incorporated and the mixture thickens to the consistency of soft ice cream. Mix in the lemon juice or vitamin C crystals. Add the agave nectar or honey to taste.

Variation: Substitute strawberries, apricots, nectarines, cherries, or blueberries for the peaches.

You can also make this sauce using frozen peaches (or other fruit) and unfrozen banana. Just remember that one fruit must be frozen and one fruit must be a banana.
