Egg Nog Bad....Fruit Smoothie Good....

Egg Nog, That's How Eli described it when He first tried this smoothie I created. Still One of the best starts to a morning, this can be made a variety of ways.Do not add ice if Your going for the Egg Nog feeling, Kinda Creamy. If your in need of some protein, Add about 10 Macadamia nuts while blending. And Just leave it the same if you want that yummy Iced Chai flavor!
Blended Chai:
4 Frozen organic bananas
1 1/2 cup almond milk
3 T Honey
1 Teas alcohol free Vanilla
1 Teas Cinnamon
1 Teas ginger
1 Teas Nutmeg

Blend well in Blender until smooth then add One cup chopped ice and blend quickly leaving slushy like texture, SO SO yum!

For Dinner we went with something quite Easy and Great for leftovers, Raw Marinara And Zucchini noodles. A couple of colds are trying to sneak in the house so I wanted to scare them off with some Fresh Raw Garlic ;o)
You can use a blender for the sauce but I prefer the food processor.

Marinara And Zucchini:

First Julienne about 6 zucchini
Toss with 1 T cold press olive oil and a pinch of sea salt and cover and set aside
This will be ready when your sauce is done.

3 ripe med size tomatoes
1 cup sun dried tomatoes
2 cup fresh basil
4 T balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup cold press olive oil
1/4 red onion chopped
2 T hemp seeds
1 Jalapeno chopped (optional)
4 chopped dates
pinch sea salt
pinch or oregano
pinch pepper
process in food chopper till blended and enjoy with your noodles and a side salad.
