Mini Pizza's

This is a favoirte in our house, especially with the kids.  Sorry, I don't have any pictures of this one, but the next time we make it I'll take some.

Grands Biscuts (2 packages)
Pizza sauce
toppings of your choice

Take and seperate the grands biscuts and then flatten to look like mini pizza dough.  Put pizza sauce, toppings and chese.  Place on cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 13 min, or until cheese is melted.  3 mini pizzas is perfect for an adult and the kids each eat one a piece.

No-Fuss Sunrise Smoothie

I hate breakfast.  I normally don't eat it which doesn't help with losing weight.  Well I pulled out one of my many cookbooks and found this recipie for a breakfast smoothie.  It comes from a Dr Phil cookbook and it was super good.  It is easy and filling. 

Frozen Fruit mixture:
2 cups blackberries (fresh or frozen)
2 cups raspberries (fresh or frozen)
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
2 large bannanas, thinly sliced
(we also added 2 cups of blueberries)

Individual smoothies:
1 cup of apple juice
1/4 teaspoon vanillia

Combine the berries and bananas in a large ziplock bag and freeze.  This will keep for up to 4 months.

To make the smoothie, scoop 1 cup of fruit mixture into a blender.  Add the juice and vanilla and blend until smooth.

I had this and a granola bar for a very filling breakfast that is also healthy.
