SunsetSmoothie-2

Ingredients:
Makes 2 servings
1 cup Frozen Strawberries
1 cup Frozen Mango
1 Large Frozen Banana
1 cup Water / Coconut Milk / Almond Milk < Choose whatever liquid you want!

Directions:
1) Blend 1 frozen banana, 1 cup of frozen mango and 3/4 cup of liquid in a blender. This is the first layer of your smoothie, so it needs to be thick in order for the layers to build properly. Add more frozen mango if you need to thicken the mixture. Pour 1/3 of the mixture into 2 glasses.

2) Add in a 4-6 frozen strawberries and a splash of liquid so the mixture isn’t as thick as the first layer. Blend and pour the mixture into the glasses leaving enough for the last layer.

Chocolate Covered Heart Strawberries

February 10, 2015 — by Griffin Thall

Trade that boring box of chocolates for this healthier sweet snack. Feeling loved is all about feeling special, so spend some quality time making these with your boyfriend, BFF, girlfriend or Grandma this Valentine’s Day.

Supplies:
Strawberries
Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
Small Knife
Microwave-safe Bowl
Wax Paper

Directions:
1) Wash and dry the strawberries. Cut a “V” into the top of each strawberry, then cut in half so the strawberry can lay flat.


2) Put a handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Set your microwave’s power level to 50%. Microwave for one minute at a time, stirring often. This is an important step to avoid burning the chocolate. The residual heat will continue to melt the chocolate. Stir, stir, stir until smooth!


3) Time to skinny dip!

4) Lay them flat on wax paper and refrigerate for an hour. Then grab a loved one, press play on a mushy chick flick, snuggle under a blanket and enjoy!

Send some sweet love to your Valentine by sharing this post with them.
