A rep from the company Prairie Naturals paid us a visit at the store a couple of weeks ago and shared an incredibly yummy recipe for a healthier Pina Colada. If you wanted to add alcohol, fee free but it would somewhat defeat the purpose of making a healthy cocktail 🙂
1 cup Pineapple Juice
1/2 cup Coconut Milk (canned, you want all the healthy fats)
1/2 teaspoon Aqua Greens ( or any other Spirulina/Chlorella combination)
Pulse all ingredients on high in a blender for 60 seconds. Garnish any way you wish, I added shredded coconut. Serve cold. Makes 1 large serving.
*Recipe originally provided by the company Prairie Naturals
Prepare all of the vegetables and saute until tender in a large pot with about 1 tablespoon of olive oil. When soft, add the spices and cook until fragrant. Add the broth and bring to a simmer. Next pour in the barley and let cook for 10 minutes, then add the lentils and quinoa. Simmer everything until the desired consistency has been reached.
* To make this recipe gluten free omit the barley, I decided to add some because I love the chewiness it gives to the dish.
First you must start with a clean work surface and gather all of your tools:
– Sterilized glass mason jar
– Boiling water
– Pure Vodka
– Dried herbs of Choice (I used Horsetail, which is full of silica for strong hair and nails.)
Fill your mason jar half way with the dried herbs you have chosen to make your tincture. Make sure not to pack them down. Next fill your mason jar with just enough boiling water to completely wet the herbs. This step also helps with the infusion and will create a stronger tincture.
Next, fill the mason jar the rest of the way with pure vodka. Always make sure to use a type of alcohol that can be consumed. Never use rubbing alcohol!
Sercure the jar with a tight fitting light and store in a dark, cool place for 6-8 weeks. Make sure to shake the jar everyday and do not let the he contents settle.
** I decided to make a Horsetail tincture which is full of silica and helps to promote strong hair and nails. When taking a tincture internally it is recommended to first dilute in a small amount of water. If you would first like to evaporate the alcohol, make as a tea and pour a small amount into boiling water. Since this tincture is specifically for hair, I will be adding it to my shampoo and massaging it into my hair along with coconut or olive oil.
1 organic sweet apple, cored and chopped into quarters
1 organic pear, cored and chopped into quarters
1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
In a high powered blender or juicer, combine all of the ingredients. If using a blender, pass the juice through a juice bag or fine sieve to filter out any pulp. Any left over juice can be stored in a mason jar in the fridge for up to 2-3 days.
