Raspberry Banana Almond Smoothie 


My new smoothie combination – one banana, frozen raspberries, approximately 1 tablespoon of Manitoba Harvest hemp hearts and Nuts to You almond butter, a wee bit of vanilla extract and one cup Silk unsweetened almond milk. Blend and enjoy! 

Peach, Mozzarella and Basil Caprese Salad with Balsamic Reduction 

It is peach season. A tomato and mozzarella caprese salad is one of my favourites so I decided to put a summertime spin on it by using peaches instead. 

All you need is basil leaves, mozzarella and peaches. To make the balsamic reduction – bring balsamic to a boil and simmer for ten minutes till it takes on a thicker consistency. I used 1/4 cup since I only needed a small amount. If you have not tried a balsamic reduction before, you will love the more intense flavour it brings to a salad. 

Enjoy this simplistic fresh summer salad!
