This smoothie is naturally sweetened with strawberries and dates and flavored with vanilla and cinnamon. Soaking the coconut flakes, cashews and dates makes them soft, so they are completely smooth when blended. If you want to have this smoothie for breakfast, go ahead and soak the coconut, cashews and dates in the refrigerator overnight, then in the morning you’ll be all ready to blend.

I was always intimidated by crepes. They sound fancy, and I thought you needed a special pan, special ingredients, etc. I was wrong and they actually are just as easy as pancakes. They're now one of my kids’ favorite breakfasts (or dinners if my husband is out – they seem to think it’s a secret if we have them for dinner and will ask me, “Does Dad know?”). But you need to make the batter in a blender and chill in the fridge for at least an hour or even overnight if you want to be organized on a Sunday morning.
Once you are ready to roll, the key is to have everything assembled before you start cooking them, because the pace is fast and furious. I set out sliced strawberries, powdered sugar, warm maple syrup, chocolate syrup and whipped cream (it’s a special treat, after all!), call the kids to the table and transfer the crepes to their plates as I make them. You can make them in advance, cool them, and freeze them in a resealable plastic bag separated by wax paper. However, I’ve never had the opportunity, as we never have any extras!tags: breakfast BLD brunch lunch Budget-Friendly rice, grains and breads griddle food processor or blender more
