Strawberry ‘n Honey Sauce

My daughter was whipping up some french toast when I said “we don’t have any maple syrup” she puckered her lower lip and put on her sad face.  I said “I can whip up something using honey if you’d like”  She immediately brightened with an excited “YEAH!”.  Thus was the origin of the Strawberry ‘n Honey Sauce 😉

Strawberry ‘n Honey Sauce

  • 2 c raw honey
  • 1 c strawberry preserves (homemade if you have it or Organic store bought)
  • 1 t vanilla

Combine ingredients in a pot on the stove and heat on medium heat stirring frequently until all ingredients combine well and are thoroughly heated.  Pour over whatever you like and enjoy 🙂

Fruit Popsicles – Organic, Homemade



     Organic Fruit Popsicles

  • 1 Kiwi, sliced
  • 1 large or 2 small Strawberries, sliced
  • 12 Blueberries
  • 1 Blackberry, sliced
  • 4 Grapes, halved
  • 1 T Honey (I use raw honey, I recommend getting local honey when you can)

Mix together honey and orange juice.  Divide fruit pieces into 4 popsicle molds and top off with the orange juice and honey mixture.  Freeze overnight.  Great for serving the kids on those hot summer days!

Strawberry-Banana Oatmeal Smoothie

So I have been seeing a lot of neat recipes floating around on facebook lately and you know me, I HAVE to try it at least once if it looks good and isn’t too dependent on processed foods.  So here is my:

     Strawberry-Banana Oatmeal Smoothie

  • 1/4 c uncooked old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 t dried chia seeds
  • 3/4 c almond milk
  • 1/4 c orange juice (I used pineapple juice in this picture b/c SOMEBODY drank the oj)
  • 1/4 c yogurt (I use organic, hormone, anti-biotic free)
  • 1/2 c fresh sliced strawberries
  • 1/2 c fresh sliced bananas
  • 1/2 t vanilla extract
  • 2 t honey (I use local/raw)

In blender add your oats and chia seeds. Blend on high until texture of flour.  Add milk and juice to blender and blend well making sure to get the oats and chia up into the mixture with a spoon or spatula.  Add yogurt and blend.  Add strawberries and bananas, then blend.  Add vanilla and honey and blend on high until desired smoothness is obtained.  Transfer into jar and refrigerate overnight.  Will keep in fridge for 2-3 days. Shake before drinking.
