Yummy Blueberry, Banana, Swiss chard Frozen Blitz

September 30, 2017 in Cooking/Nutrition


It’s still warm out but getting cooler, how about a healthy snack for the kids or your husband. Good all year really, right? I used what I had on hand to create this yummy frozen drink.

You can consume it right after you create it or freeze it and eat it with a spoon.

Set it out about 5-10 mins for easy scooping.

What you will need:

1 banana

½ an apple

½ cup of frozen or fresh blueberries

A handful of raw almond or other nuts

4 dates chopped

2 cups of Swiss chard or spinach

½ cup of almond milk or other plant milk

1 cup of ice cubes

Optional: 1 T Flaxseeds, 1 tsp Tumeric

Blend until smooth.

Add some to small cups and place them in the freezer for later.

Cooking with Kids

My granddaughter Julia and I spent the morning cooking and we wanted to share our happy experience with you.

We made Carrot Cake Energy Balls. They were made of carrots of course, dates, walnuts, coconut and spices. No cooking involved, you’ll just need a food processor and good old hands on rolling. Julia really liked that part. I love Anja and her awesome recipes and videos that take you through them step by step. Julia and I thought they were um, Yum!  Mom and one of her brothers liked them too.

Give it a try, go to: CookingwithPlants for the recipe

PS This is the first of many posts to come about food and nutrition. I decided to add another healthy aspect to The Singing Nurse website. I will be sharing some yummy recipes I’ve been trying and share fun ways to get the kids to eat their fruits, veggies and other healthy plant based foods. I recently finished a nutrition course with Cornell online based on “The China Study” by T Colin Campbell PhD & Thomas Cambell MD which was really awesome and eye opening. So, I will be passing along some great info that I know will encourage and challenge you.
