Here’s a smoothie recipe from Betsy P., an Ag Connect member. “My son calls it my green dinosaur drink,” she says. I’ve tried it, and it’s delicious. Tons of flavor and packed with vitamins and nutrients.

Here it is:

1 cup frozen blueberries

1/4 of an avocado

1/2 a banana

1-2 cups raw kale

Sunflower seeds
Pumpkins seeds, and/or flax seeds OR almond butter/peanut butter

1/2-1 cup water

Savory Spice Shop Spices: Use as much as you like of ground turmeric, ground peppercorns (to help your body absorb the benefits found in turmeric), ground cloves, ground cacao, Saigon cinnamon, ground cardamom, and Himalayan Sea Salt.

Betsy’s tip: “People can create the smoothie to their taste and/or their health needs. That is what I have done the last four months. It is fun to experiment.”

Steel Cut Oatmeal with Blueberries


Here’s an easy way to use up your blueberries next week courtesy of Channeling Contessa. You can find the original post here. Doesn’t this look yummy?

Steel Cut Oatmeal with Blueberries
Serves 3

2 cups water
1 cup milk
1 cup steel cut oats
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup frozen blueberries
3 Tbs ground flax seed
3 pats of butter
maple syrup and cinnamon for serving

Bring water, milk, and salt to a boil. Once boiling, drop in oats, stir, and bring down to a simmer. Simmer oatmeal, stirring occasionally, for 25- 30 minutes.
Meanwhile divide blueberries between 3 serving bowls. Once the oatmeal is cooked (it should be creamy and slightly crunchy in texture), divide it into the three dishes, covering the blueberries. Top with 1 teaspoon butter and 1 tablespoon ground flax seed each. Stir each gently to combine the oatmeal with the blueberries. Serve immediately with cinnamon and maple syrup.
