I hymned and hawd all week about what to make for tonight’s Good Friday Potluck at church. I was going to make chicken stuffed with spinach, but chicken is really expensive right now, so I opted not to do that. Then I thought “maybe I’ll make chili”, but its annoying to carry a plate and a bowl through the buffet line, so I opted not to do that either. Finally, I decided to make an old standby with a twist: Macaroni with four cheeses. Sounds naughty doesn’t it?
Not this recipe!

Ellie Krieger has got to be one of my favorite Food Network personalities. She not only makes healthy food, but it’s delicious and easy. My husband bought me her new cookbook The Food You Crave for Valentine’s Day this year and I haven’t put it down since. I can’t say the same for many of the other cookbooks on my shelf. Oh look, here is part of my shelf now…
Buy the green one! It’s Great!
This morning I flipped to dog-eared page 18, Blueberry Blast Smoothies. Hallelujah, Praise the Lord! We ate all our blueberries earlier in the week, so I substituted strawberries and added a little flax seed and it turned out amazing! Let me walk you through it…
Gather ingredients: FF yogurt, FF milk, Frozen Strawberries and Flax Seeds (optional), oh and honey! I always forget the honey!
Add 1/2c. FF yogurt and 1/2c. of FF milk to the blender
Add 1 rounded cup of Frozen strawberries
Measure out 1 tsp. of Flax seeds. Aren’t they pretty?
Add them to the blender
1 tbsp. honey
Blend until smooth. I let it run about a minute.
See the flaxies in it?
Recipe makes 1 serving (appox. 12oz)
Each serving is 3 pts/4pts with optional flax seeds
