A morning smoothie greets me just about every day. I love combining fruit, almond milk, nuts, cottage cheese (yep! It blends up great!), and other flavors. I never quite know what my final result will be.
I want to share with you a great recipe from Augason Farms that incorporates their freeze dried whole raspberries. For a flavor switch-up, you could use blueberries, strawberries, or blackberries. When they’re freeze-dried, you can use them throughout the year and once the container is opened, they’ll stay fresh for months.
Take a look at just how simple this recipe is:
Blend for 2-3 minutes or until smooth.
You can omit the honey and use the sweetener of your choice, such as stevia.
Another delicious summer recipe is this one for a macaroni salad with a twist or two:
Aloha Macaroni Salad
2 cups Augason Farms Elbow Macaroni
1/2 32-ounce jar salad dressing (Miracle Whip) or mayonnaise
1 20-ounce can pineapple tidbits
1/2 lb. sharp cheddar cheese, grated
3/4 cup raisins
1 medium carrot
Peel and dice carrot and steam until crisp-tender. Boil macaroni in boiling water 7-10 minutes. Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Chill for 2 hours or overnight prior to serving.
