Strawberry Coconut Milk

Standard

I decided to try a spin on the homemade Coconut Milk that I made yesterday, and the results were fairly tasty. Next time I would add 1 more cup of strawberries, but otherwise, this was good!

Coconut Rice Congee

Standard

Yesterday I decided to make double batches of both my Coconut Milk and Rice Milk recipes. As a result, I had both rice congee and coconut meat leftover. (Rice congee is what is left in the strainer when straining your rice milk. It’s a thick consistency, somewhat like porridge or pudding.) I decided to make the most of both of my leftovers, by incorporating them into one new recipe. My little monkey and I enjoyed this very much, and hopefully you do too!

Please comment to let me know if you do try it and what you think of it.

Cherry Spinach Smoothie

Standard

I purchased a wonderful bunch of spinach from the Farmer’s Market on Saturday, and wanted a tasty way to use it all up. I decided to juice it all, and then add the juice to a smoothie. The end result was delicious, and I honestly couldn’t even taste the spinach juice in it. It’s truly a super way to incorporate some greens, without a green taste!
