Chocolate covered cherry smoothie, yum!

Our oven is back in business!  Thank goodness I have such a handy hubby that can fix anything.  Well, he is the one who actually broke the oven so it’s a good thing he fixed it!  Ha!

The love nugget and I decided to stay home this morning and get some stuff done around the house.  After a busy weekend and a busy start to our week I haven’t had much time to make him any food.

I started the morning off by making him some banana pancakes and me a chocolate covered cherry green smoothie that I adapted from Peas and Thank you.  My new Vegan cookbook that I am loving!

Eggless Banana pancakes

1 cup of whole wheat pastry flour or whole wheat flour

1 tbsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1/3 cup applesauce

1 medium mashed banana

1 tbsp vegetable oil

1 cup of water

Sift together four, baking powder and cinnamon.  In a separate bowl, mix together applesauce, banana, oil and water.  Add to dry ingredients and mix well.  Drop 1/4 cup of mix into a greased pan and cook for a few minutes on each side.  These puff up quiet a bit so after I flip them once, I press them down with the back of a spatula.  Then flip them again.

To go with his pancakes, I decided to try out a little green smoothie for the love nugget.

Baby Green Smoothie

2-3 slices of frozen organic peaches

1/4 cup frozen organic blueberries

1/2 cup organic spinach

1 tbsp plain baby yogurt or greek yogurt

1/2 – 3/4 cup of water (the love nugget hasn’t had milk yet but if you’re little one has you can use that instead)

Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.  If it’s too thick, add in a little more water/milk.

The love nugget was in heaven!  Great way to get in some fruit and vegetables!

 Chocolate Covered Cherry Smoothie

1/2 banana

1/2 cup frozen cherries

1 tbsp almond butter

1 tbsp cocoa powder

1 cup chard, kale or spinach (today I used chard)

1 cup almond milk

Dash of Stevia

Blend all ingredients in a blender, enjoy!

Now that we’ve started our morning with a yummy, healthy breakfast, we’re off to cook away!
