Creamsickle Lemonaid with Kefir

I should have taken a picture of this, but I didn’t. In part because it never occurred to me that anyone would want the recipe. Ooops. So, I’ve been asked for the recipe, and have nothing pretty to show off my awesome throw-crap-in-a-blender skills. Oh, well, enjoy the smoothie!

-1 Magic Bullet glass. This holds about 16 oz, so go from there if you’re not using this kind of blender.


-Lemon juice (fresh squeezed is best, but concentrate will do)

-1 tsp (or to taste) Honey, raw if possible

-Berries, about 1/4 cup (I used blueberries and raspberries, but use whatever you want)



Fill glass about half way with ice. Add lemon juice to fill about 1/4 of the glass. Add berries and honey. Add kefir to bring glass to about 2/3 full, add water to fill remainder. Blend until smooth, add more honey or lemon juice if necessary. Garnish with mint, if desired, or just drink as-is.

This was incredibly refreshing, and while it was just me tossing random things that needed using into the blender, I’ll definitely do it again soon!


Warm Up Fall with Baked Oatmeal!

Baked Oatmeal, using leftover oatmeal

-2 tbs. butter

Preheat oven to 350. Combine oatmeal, milk, and honey, stirring until combined. Pour into oiled or sprayed 9″ pan. Top with granola. Lay fruit gently on top of granola, then cut butter into small squares and sprinkle on top. Bake for 20-30 minutes, depending on how brown you want it. Serve with whole-grain toast.
