Chocolate Covered Apples

Yum

I know it's not technically fall yet... but when school starts and September 1st  goes by.... I'm thinking fall 'all!   I love apples and always have a big bowl of apples sitting on my kitchen counter.  My son is not the biggest fan of apples, but he loved these.  Chocolate coated and dipped in fun candy, coconut and peanuts... how can you go wrong?  My daughter took some chocolate dipped slices of apples as her "dessert" in a her lunch box today too.  So, don't just make these during the fall... this is a fun dessert or treat any time. 


 
Ingredients: 
1lb chocolate
6-7 small apples
popsicles sticks as needed
baking tray lined with wax paper

Garnishes:
chopped peanuts
M&M or Reese's Pieces chopped
Bakers sweetened coconut
chocolate sprinkles




Directions:
Wash and remove stem from all apples. Insert popsicle stick into apple and chill apples until needed. Next melt chocolate over double boiler until melted and stirred well.  Dip apples into melted chocolate and them sprinkle or dip into garnishes of choice.  Place coated apples onto wax paper and then chill until chocolate is set.   Enjoy.

Kale Pineapple and Orange Smoothie (Non-Dairy)

Yum

Have you heard that Kale is a Superfood?  I love Kale because it's so versatile.  I have curried it... put it into pastas, soups, stir fries... now an amazing smoothie.   My daughter drank half the blender of this smoothie after tasting this wonderful fruit and kale filled non-dairy smoothie.  It's a great away to start your day and boost your health in the process.



Ingredients:
1 cup kale chopped (no stems... just the leaves)
1 pineapple, peeled and  cut into chunks (for a frosty smoothie freeze some of the pineapple)
3 seedless oranges peeled and cut into segments
2 cups almond milk (I used vanilla flavored)
sweetener (if needed.. I used none)
1 cup ice- if your pineapple is not frozen

Directions:
Prepare all fruit and vegetables.  Place in to blender and blend until smooth.  If you desire a very smooth texture, strain before serving.  We had it without straining.  Enjoy.
