I am so tickled to link you up with a Jenny the Kitchen Coach video today. I love her and her ideas and food are always amazing!

And me, I’m propped up looking into the face of our newest little grandchild who is sleeping next to me. I am in awe again at the sanctity of life and the wisdom, creation and progress made possible within the family unit. All I can say is praise be to God for the opportunity to be in this flesh, learning at an accelerated pace by what we are experiencing here together. Life is precious.

I wish you a bright and happy Monday!

 

Love,

Jacque

 

P.S. Here are the recipes you’ll be seeing Jenny make on this video! Don’t they sound amazing?

Shamrock Shake (aka: healthy mint chocolate chip smoothie)
-3 C. milk of choice
-1/2 an avocado
-1C. greens of choice (more if you’d like!)
-1/4-1/2 tsp. monk fruit powder (or other sweetener, to taste)
-sprinkle of salt
-4-5 drops peppermint essential oil, or you can use 1/4-1/2 tsp. of peppermint baking extract.
-8-12 ice cubes
-unsweetened or dark chocolate pieces (as much as you want!)
Blend everything together for 20-30 seconds.
Sometimes I will blend everything but the chocolate and then blend that in separately at the end; this will give you slightly bigger chocolate chunks. Getting the amount of sweetener just right is key to making this taste amazing- if it tastes a bit bland, add more sweetener until it tastes right 🙂
Mango Basil Smoothie
1/2 C. frozen mango chunks
small handful of basil (about 1/4 C.)1
C. milk of choice
sprinkle of salt
dash of vanilla
1/8-1/4 tsp. monk fruit powder, stevia, or other sweetener
5 pitted dates
Blend everything together for about a minute. The dates take some time to become fully incorporated. If you don’t have a high-powered blender, soak your dates for at least an hour first. (You can also omit the dates and just add a little extra sweetener!)

  1. I like her ideas but wish there were a written version available of the recipes as looking up and watching a video and taking notes before I can do a recipe makes me less likely to try it. So my request is to please include the recipe in your post. Thank you Jacque and Jenny.
