Capturing moments to reflect upon in later days.
my purple kale smoothie;8 strawberries,1\4c cantelope ,1\2c raspberries, 1\4c milk,1\4c vanilla yogurt,and of course kale chopped up about 1\2 cup.. I put all the berries and cantelope into the magic bullet along with the chopped and washed kale.. blended it well added milk and yogurt…voile drink and enjoy Kale is very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin, and reasonably rich in calcium. Kale, as with broccoli and other brassicas, contains sulforaphane (particularly when chopped or minced), a chemical with potent anti-cancer properties
Irish Cream Chocolate Chip Parfait Recipe
recipe from Felicia
1 pkg. Chocolate Chip cookies, crunchy ones- not soft (Chips Ahoy work beautifully.)
Whipped cream (made from a pint of heavy cream) or 1 tub Whipped topping
Irish Cream liqueur or non-alcoholic Irish Cream (I’m thinking that even a bottled frappuccino would work here.)
- Pour about 1/2 cup of Irish Cream into a bowl. (More if you need it) Dip cookies one at a time into the Irish Cream. I usually let them stay in a few seconds and then turn them over to make sure they’re completely covered. Don’t leave them in long enough to get soggy- they’ll fall apart.
- For a 9x12 baking dish: Start with a layer of dipped cookies and then top with a layer of whipped cream. Repeat the layers and finish with a sprinkling of crushed cookies.
- For parfait glasses or canning jars: Alternate layers of dipped cookies and whipped cream. End up with whipped cream as the top layer and then sprinkle with some crumbled cookies.
- Cover and refrigerate for at least a couple of hours (can be done a day ahead) before serving so the cookies have a chance to absorb the liqueur and soften.
