Healthy Summer Popsicles/Freezies!

There are few things so pleasurable than enjoying a corner-of-the-mouth-destroying freezie during the summer. But those things are basically just sugar, flavour, and colour. Check out this article at Kids Activities Blog for some great recipes producing healthy and low/no sugar frozen treats!

Home-Made Congestion Rub

Thanks to our friends at Homestead Survival, we found this amazing recipe for an organic, home-made congestion rub that apparently works better than the Vick’s type brands. It is made in a crock pot. The process takes a while. But the reviews are amazing.

DIY Almond Milk

I found this great article at Herban Lifestyle for making your own almond milk. I enjoy alternative milks. But they are quite expensive and some of the time it’s hard to find organic sources.

Banana Sushi

Thanks to Homestead Survival for sharing this recipe.

I don’t know if you would call it sushi. But spread a banana with peanut butter and roll it in rice puffs or something crunchy. Slice it for a sushi effect or eat it whole. I would imagine chilling it would be a good idea if you plan to slice it. I haven’t tried it yet. But I think it would go great with the home made peanut butter I made a couple of posts ago.

Homemade Peanut Butter Test

We tried the Homemade Peanut Butter recipe we posted on July 5. It was so simple and yummy. We just poured a bunch of Honey Roasted Peanuts into the food processor and let ‘er rip. At first the chopped nuts clung to the sides and nothing was on the blades. But a few taps on the side got them down to the business end. After about ten seconds it started to liquefy. We like ours a little crunchy so stopped when it was just right.

It was warm at first an a little goopy. But after a few minutes of cooling it firmed up a bit. We spread it on some rye and sampled our work.

AMAZING!
