Coconut Milk Eggnog
- 3 Cups Coconut Milk – I use this brand
- 4 Organic Egg Yolks, preferably pasture raised
- 1 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract (I make my own)
- 1/4 Cup Maple Syrup (or more if you like)
- Coconut Whipped Cream (optional)
- Cinnamon (optional)
We enjoy a lot of smoothies in our home this time of the year. They make for easy breakfasts on hectic days and are also a great way to sneak healthy ingredients into our diets.
This Pina colada Smoothie is a refreshing beverage to start the day with! It’s full of healthy fats, vitamins, minerals and natural sugars for energy. It tastes great as is, but you can add extra ingredients like gelatin and egg yolks for added protein and nutrients!
I think I finally perfected my Orange Julius recipe! I posted my original recipe a few years ago, which included whole oranges and Keifer. It had good flavor but wasn’t quite as good as the real stuff!
I love this recipe not only because it taste good, but because it is packed with nutrients. Fresh squeezed orange juice provides 100% daily value of vitamin C and is also rich in thiamine, potassium and folate.

I really love recipes that are both HEALTHY and TASTY! My kids do too!
Homemade ice cream is one of my favorite desserts. Ice cream can be a nutrient dense treat too!

According to Mr.Stone, ice cream is almost as nutritious as mother milk! Continue reading
