Remember how I told you that I can open the new Deliciously Organic cookbook I received recently, and that I can make just about any recipe in it, since each one calls for the healthy ingredients I typically use and have on hand? Wow, have I been having fun. I love reading (and drooling over) these simple, yet tasty recipes that are full of such nourishing foods.
During the next week, I’ll be sharing some of our experiences from our Deliciously Organic taste-testing. I can’t share the recipes with you because they aren’t mine to share. But remember, author Carrie Vitt has put together some very generous deals for you so that you can get your own copy of this great cookbook for a big discount!
Yesterday, we quickly whipped up her Strawberry Coconut Smoothies to go with our lunch.
The coconut milk in these made this treat so creamy and refreshing. It was only slightly “coconutty” – just right. The kids devoured it, and I suppose it goes without saying that Matt and I did too. ;)
What we’re planning to make next is still up for vote. Our ten year old, Elias, has been pouring over the book, as he often does when he gets his hands on a cookbook with awesome food pictures. Can I again just say how nice it is that I don’t have to look at the recipe and tell him, “No, we can’t make that. It uses too many unhealthy ingredients and I’m not sure how to adapt that one.” Instead, I can look at each recipe he points to and give him a thumbs up.
Now to just find the time to make every single recipe in the book as the kids pick them out… :)
