  • How to Make Your Own Almond Coconut Milk

    If you have dairy allergies, you’re probably familiar with alternative milk options such as soy, coconut, almond, hemp or flax milk. But, did you know that making your own non-diary milk offers more nutrients and is super easy? Fresh nut milk has no preservatives and can be sweetened, flavored and enjoyed to your own personal taste. Here’s my favorite recipe for Cinnamon Almond Coconut Milk.

    INGREDIENTS
    2 cups of raw almonds (non-roasted and salt free)
    ¾ cup shredded coconut (or ¼ cup coconut milk)
    8 cups of cold water
    3-4 cups of water for soaking almonds

    By Kimberly Young, MA; Founder of Healthy Little Cooks and author of the 5-Minute Lunchbox

    After being a part of the Redskins Kids Club Combine on Saturday, I felt moved to create a smoothie that both kids and parents would love, but was also super-healthy for our bodies.

    Unlike most traditional banana breads, this smoothie won’t weigh you down. It’s packed full of electrolytes and potassium. It also feeds the body magnesium, vitamin E & C. These nutrients make it an excellent post-workout snack or mini-meal. 

    Ingredients
    1 banana, very ripe
    1 cup coconut water
    1 cup ice

    As the head mom cook of a family of six, I often purchase store bought marinara sauce, but today I had something rare, extra time and tomatoes.  Since many store-bought sauces contain sugar, this is an excellent and healthy way to bring a touch of Italy in to your kitchen.

     Ingredients

    4 cups diced tomatoes, keeping all juice*
    1 large onion, chopped
    3 cloves of fresh garlic (or 2 teaspoons canned minced garlic)

    This Thanksgiving, my husband got a little over zealous with his turkey-cooking responsibilities and smoked an extra bird.  So, with more than enough turkey in our refrigerator, we froze it in little packs and pull one out whenever I feel moved to try a new recipe.  This turkey soup was amazing!  It came out so good that my kids asked me to pack the leftovers in their lunch.  The best part is that it only took me 8 minutes to prepare and ...

    Two of my family’s favorite treats are hot dogs and fresh baked pretzels, so combing them makes me a superhero.  Before we had 4 kids, I’d go to the nearby Amish market to buy them, but at $4 a pretzel my habit became too expensive.  So I searched for a healthier and cheaper way to keep my superhero status. Using Alton Brown’s Homemade Soft Pretzel Recipe as a base, I perfected the winning recipe.  Enjoy!
