Heavenly Bliss

I've named this Heavenly Bliss. I was cleaning out the freezer yesterday and among the piles and piles of frozen banana's I found three random frozen strawberries. I decided to make a smoothie using:
2 smallish frozen bananas
3 frozen largish strawberries
and just a splash of unsweetened almond milk

This was my first time making a smoothie without ice cream or yogurt and did not want it to be overly liquidy so I decided to add only the tiniest amount of almond milk to begin with. It turned out to be a good thing and ended up with a texture and taste not unlike an incredibly smooth ice cream. This recipe yields just a little over a cup of Heavenly Bliss. What an incredible healthy (not to mention vegan) alternative for sugar cravings. Enjoy!

GF Bisquick Pancakes

I don't think I've done a review of Bisquick's GF Pancake Mix yet. They are absolutely delicious! We visited my sister out of town for Christmas and she made these while we were there. They look, smell, and taste just like non gluten free buttermilk pancakes. I had no idea that Bisquick was making GF pancake mix. When we got home Bear made some biscuits using this flour and they turned out so light and tasty. This brand of pancake mix gets four thumbs up from us. Enjoy!
