  2. Jo’s Favorite Smoothie
    2 cups spinach (sometimes I throw in kale, cucumbers, celery…whatever I have on hand)
    1 cup Greek yogurt
    1 cup frozen fruit…(frozen berries, pineapple, cherries, peaches, plums, kiwi…whatever you have on hand)
    1 frozen banana that has been sliced before freezing
    1 tablespoon chia seeds
    1 tablespoon PB2 (Powdered Peanut Butter) if cannot find, use regular peanut butter
    1 tablespoon dark cocoa powder
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    Blend in a high powered blender like a Vitamix until smooth.

    I divide it up and enjoy some for breakfast and the rest in the evenings while watching tv. For the evenings, I stick it in the freezer for a couple of hours so it is nice and thick like ice cream. Grab a spoon and I have a frosty treat that is much kinder to my waistline. Enjoy!

  3. These are totally yummy fritters that contain no flour or sugar or anything – yet feel very treaty and yummy. Mash 1 ripe banana, add 2 lightly beaten eggs, a handful of blueberries (or some such – from the freezer is ok), a good shake of cinnamon and a little bit of desiccated coconut if you like. Fry spoonfuls in coconut oil (or similar). Healthy and yum!!
