These are more of a summer type treat- actually who am I trying to kid, it’s fruit and chocolate, it is an EVERYDAY type of treat! 🙂 I don’t think there is anyway you can mess this recipe up!! Even if you are licking chocolate off the walls! 😉 Very easy ingredients (see picture below!)

Directions:

  • Peel banana and cut, cut pineapple in about 1 inch pieces, and slice strawberries in half (make sure you cut the tops off first!)
  • Heat up chocolate and coconut oil on the stove, stir occasionally so you don’t burn it! Also, line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside
  • Stack one of each piece of fruit onto a toothpick or screwer
  • Dip one trio at a time into the melted chocolate, at this time add nuts or shredded coconut before the chocolate hardens
  • After dipped, place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Once all are complete to your preference, place baking sheet in the freezer to harden chocolate before serving.

Pineapple-Strawberry Apple Cider Vinegar Smoothie

Pineapple-Strawberry Apple Cider Vinegar Smoothie

Yummm! Every time I read the name of this smoothie it makes me want one!!! Of course I am a Pinterest junkie who usually posts just about EVERYTHING that catches my eye, but then I never, ever ever everrrrrr put it to good use. Well, one day I was in the mood for something different! I had a bunch of fresh fruit in the fridge, and apple cider vinegar hanging out in the cabinet. I know that apple cider vinegar has so many health benefits to it, which  am not going to go into right now. As I was scrolling through “healthy meals“, which is on of my boards, I came across this awesome looking smoothie. Okay, to be honest, it didn’t LOOK awesome, the ingredients just jumped out at me!


 

Here is what you need to make this healthy packed, yummy, delicious smoothie!

Equipment: Blender and a knife!

Ingredients:

>1/3 of a pineapple (I got the pre-cut ones that look like a cylinder are used 1/3 of that!)

> 1/2 cup or more of coconut water (you can also use plain water, but you can’t taste the coconut water, and that has huge benefits, so I recommend just using coconut water)

>1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar ( I used 1.5 the first time I could barely taste the vinegar, used 2 the second and it was way too much, start small, and add as you see fit)

> 1 teaspoon raw honey

> any extra fruit– I used a handful of fresh strawberries

Directions: Chop, combine, blend!
