Berry Berry Granita Smoothie

My boys are crazy about this newest special treat creation. Treats are a big thing at our house and it's hard to keep it healthy. But I think I've done it. Tons of berries and a few scoops of superfood powders make this very high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. And it's the easiest recipe I've ever posted. Try it, this batch had to be guarded while in the blender so watch those little hands! 


Now, throw it all in a blender, I love my Ninja, absolutely great for blended treats like this one. 
Blend in high for 1-2  minutes or until it's smooth and to your liking. 
It should resemble the consistency of very soft ice cream. 
Have spoon waiting and ready, serve and enjoy watching everyone go crazy!

Berry Coconut Bar- gluten-free

I love coconut. And this bar has tons. Coconut is not only tasty, but it is one of the best fats you can eat. And good fats are not only help your skin and hair shine, help you get the bad fats out of your system, but also help you and your kids developing brains. The brain is made of fat, and it's nerves are coated with even more fat to help transmissions. So the lesson here is eat more good fats. But also add some tasty berries.


  • 3 & 1/2 cups gluten free flour mix (I used the featherlight mix by 
  • 3/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar (or regular sugar)
  • 12 drops liquid stevia
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 stick of butter (8 tbs) or 8 tbs coconut oil
