Deepak's Avocado Milkshakes

My husband created this recipe to emulate a treat he was fond of growing up in Southern Africa.  His mom would make it by adding sugar, a lot of sugar according to him.  He was quite happy with the results adding honey instead.  This recipe creates a thick, creamy, rich milkshake that both our girls loved and couldn't get enough of.  Plus it packs a nutritional punch, avocados are full of fiber, antioxidants and healthy fats!  It's pretty fantastic having a husband who can get creative in the kitchen!

Bloom Bake Shop: Restaurant Review

Bloom Bake Shop in Middleton, WI is wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!  When the weather finally started to warm up the girls and I made a little stop after preschool.  Sometimes it's okay to have cupcakes, for no special reason.  And it's easy not to feel guilty with the healthy ingredients they use at Bloom.  I was able to have a gluten and dairy-free cupcake and the bake shop uses local and organic ingredients in their cupcakes!  And the taste...SO GOOD!

Pudding Pops

These "pudding pops" are a healthy and delicious treat that will cool you down and make your taste buds do a happy dance.  Both of my girls loved them, in fact Bebe I ate two within a half hour.  These are the kind of treats that your kiddos will love and you don't have to feel guilty about.

Light & Easy Home Fries

This recipe is a winner in our house and crazy easy to make.  Not to mention cheaper than store bought french fries and healthier than restaurant french fries.  I used to think you needed a touch of olive oil to get crispy fries but often it actually equalled soggy fries- gross!  This method turns out perfect...every time.  Another great combination to try is sweet potatoes and rosemary....DE-licious!  The girls love to dip these fries in Ketch-Yo.  Which is simply organic ketchup mixed with plain greek yogurt.

Super Summer Smoothies

This refreshing drink will cool you down on a hot summer day faster than you can say super summer smoothie!  I like to grate cucumbers with my food processor and save some in the fridge for salads and freeze some in cubes for smoothies.  Both girls adored this one.  For me it's the perfect drink to have after a long run in the summer sun.
