Family Smoothies With Frozen Nectarines & Pumpkin Pie Spice

IMG_6807

Have you seen the bags of frozen sliced peaches and nectarines at Trader Joe’s? They are a nice change from my usual go-to ingredients. Sometimes I need just a little more sweetness and some tartness to complete what I’m blending into my smoothie. I made these two smoothies during my next-day prep last night and I was really pleased with how smooth and balanced they turned out. There is not any one distinct flavor, including the pumpkin pie spice and banana. Both have a lightly creamy texture. The kids’ smoothie somehow tasted like a strawberry milkshake!

Apple Pie Oats With Maple Walnuts

Apple Pie Oats With Maple Walnuts

The key to a good, palatable bowl of oatmeal is retaining some of the original oat texture and preventing the transformation to mush. I use rolled oats (not quick oats) because I can better control that process and they still cook really fast. You can certainly make this recipe with quick oats or steel cut oats [...]
