Tropical Sorbet

Yes, not the best pic I know but it was delicious ;)  We had sorbet with our lunch today.  I was running low on fresh fruit so I decided to make the kiddos a treat....mushed fruit (lol!)  

Tropical Sorbet

3 cups Organic frozen fruit of choice    (Ours had mango, papaya, pineapple and strawberries.)
Water                                                       (However much needed for desired consistency.)

That's it, 2 ingredients.  Put the ingredients in the blender and blend until you reach the consistency you are looking for.

Delicious and healthy.....enjoy!

Cinnabun Baked Oatmeal....Delish!

This was an awesome warm breakfast on a cold morning.  Quick and easy!  The kids said it was a "Do Again" recipe and I agree!

Cinnabun Baked Oatmeal
  • 1 cup oats (50g)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 Tbls unsalted sunflower seeds 
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tbsp maple syrup 
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce 
  • 1/2 cup milk 
Optional Ingredients: Fresh berries, extra splash of milk, sprinkle of brown sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine raw oats, spices, applesauce, and liquid. Pour into greased small ramekins. Add the sprinkle of brown sugar before baking if desired.  Cook for 15-20 minutes, or more until it’s firm. Finally, set your oven to “high broil” for 2 more minutes (or simply just bake longer, but broiling gives it a nice crust). 

After baking, top with a splash of milk and fresh berries. There are so many different variations that can be done with this.  Remember to keep it healthy with whole foods ;)
