Smoothie of the morning

This household loves smoothies!!!! My husband’s affectionate nickname for me (especially when he wants a smoothie, hmmmmm :) ) is the “Smoothie Queen”. Last Christmas I was incredibly blessed (and spoiled!) with a Vita-Mix blender to help support our habit (our daily smoothie habit, that is). I’ll try to share some of my favorite recipes as I think of them or make them.

Raspberry Pina Colada

1 cup plain yogurt

1/2- 1 cup of coconut milk (depends how much you like coconut) or 1-2 large Tbsp of coconut paste

3/4 cup frozen raspberries

1 cup frozen pineapple

2 frozen bananas (broken into 1/4 pieces, they blend easier)- my daughter added an extra 1/2 banana today and it was fine

honey to taste (1-2 Tbsp.) or Stevia (2-3 packets?)

enough water to get it all moving- probably at least a cup, depends on your blender

any superfoods you want your family to have (ie. flax oil, bee pollen, green foods, ground flax seed, ground sesame or pumpkin seed, etc.- there are so many to choose from! I don’t use greens in this smoothie because it ruins the nice color)

Serves 2-3 (my husband and I have a good sized glass, and my almost 3 year old has only a little bit less than us- the 5 mth old gets it vicariously through his milkies)

A Parent's Guide to Natural Remedies eCourse

I don't know if you've seen it or not, but I've shared a couple times this week about a collection of resources I'm honored to be a part of with some really brilliant authors and bloggers.

Before it's gone, I wanted to make sure that you knew that "A Parent's Guide to Natural Remedies" eCourse is included in the collection. If you're anything like me, you want to learn more about using natural methods for taking care of your family, but sometimes it's just hard to know where to start. Roxanne and Wendi have done a masterful job of boiling down the complexities of wholistic family care - including homeopathy, cell salts, essential oils, probiotics, and a bunch more - and making it really accessible for regular moms.

The crazy thing is...although they usually sell the eCourse at $95 (and it's a steal at that!), they've agree to include it in the special collection of resources I've helped put together, for only $29.97.

But, if you think getting a crash course in natural remedies at two thirds off the regular price is awesome, I think you'll be surprised to learn that it comes with 98 other resources handpicked for moms like you and me.

The Ultimate Homemaking Bundleis a complete library of carefully selected eBooks, eCourses, audios, online conferences, and printable packs from many of the top homemaking bloggers and writers on the web, to help you be the best mom and homemaker you can possibly be.

Now, you're obviously not going to read every eBook, and every eCourse (that would be a bit much!), but I think you'll find a number of resources in the collection to inspire, teach, equip, and encourage you in your role as a homemaker for years to come.

Valued at over $1290 but at a price tag of just $29.97, this is one tool your home can't do without!

Plus, everyone who buys a bundle through Keeper of the Home gets a bonus 2 oz. liquid herbal remedy AND our very own 4 ebooks, all designed to help you with more affordable, healthy homemaking. Learn more HERE.

But time is running out! The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle will only be available from 8:00 a.m. EST on Monday, April 20 until 11:59 p.m. EST on Monday, April 27.
