Two for the Price of One

Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of update on Monday! I was feeling a little under the weather & slept most of the day. I am happy to report, however, that you will still be getting your Monday & Wednesday recipes today. =) Thanks for these recipes goes to Sue Butler. These are great recipes for kids to make with a grown-up helper supervising.

This is a great recipe for breakfast!

Postman's Smoothie

1 frozen banana, sliced
1/4 cup each of three other frozen fruit or berries (blueberries, strawberries, mango, peach, etc.)
Enough juice to cover fruit in a blender (orange juice, cranberry juice, pineapple juice, etc.)
1 container (6 oz.) fruit yogurt
1/2 tsp. coconut extract

Place all ingredients in blender, and blend until smooth. Stir often in the process. Serve with a straw or garnish with fruit.

This is a yummy sweet treat, just for the kiddos! (Okay, you can share with grown-ups!)

Baked Cinnamon Balls

2 cups crushed corn flakes
1 cup butter
1/3 cup sugar
4 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups sifted cake flour
1 cup chopped nuts
2 tsp. vanilla

Blend butter, sugar, and vanilla using an electric mixer. Add crushed corn flakes, cinnamon, flour, and nuts and mix thoroughly. Roll into one-inch size balls. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. After cooling slightly, roll in powdered sugar. Enjoy!
