Basil Yogurt Smoothie

February 9, 2011 § Leave a comment

We have been having a very hot winter here in Los Angeles, so I decided it was time to cool down with a smoothie.  But not the super sugary kind that gives you a sugar high and causes you to crash by 4pm.  This smoothie is as good for you as it is good!  With yogurt, basil, and honey it is a fabulous mid-day snack for relaxing on a weekend or even to serve with a sweet breakfast — AND you can’t beat the color!  It is simply beautiful!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup basil leaves
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 cup plain yogurt (I love to use Greek)
  • 1 tablespoon of honey, dissolved in 3 tablespoons of warm water)

Directions:

This smoothie could not be easier to make – so simple!  Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.  Pour into tall glass, garnish with basil leaf, and serve!  Yum!

Jazz Up Your Breakfast!!!

August 9, 2010 § Leave a comment

I love love love love love breakfast!  I am always trying to think of easy one or two-step ways to jazz up a plain or normal breakfast into something great.  Thanks to summer, and its fresh berries, making a delicious hot topping for french toast, pancakes, or waffles is easy.  Take a look….

Ingredients:

  • Blueberries (or another fresh fruit)
  • Honey

Directions:

1.  Start with a normal breakfast item, like french toast, pancakes, or waffles.

2.  Put about 1/2 cup (or a handful) of blueberries in a microwave safe dish.  Add about 1 tbsp. of honey (more or less depending on how sweet you want your fruit topping) to the blueberries.  Put the microwave safe dish into the microwave for about 1 minute (or until the berries are cooked).

3.  Put the blueberry topping on your ordinary breakfast to transform it into an extraordinary breakfast!  Enjoy!
