Chocolate PB Smoothie with Soymilk

Did you know that April is National Soyfoods Month?  Packed with protein and fiber, soyfoods are a great way to reduce calories, cholesterol, and saturated fat.  They also serve a as a great source of iron, calcium, vitamin B-12, magnesium and zinc. 



Soymilk is such a popular drink lately.  It's so convenient, because you can store it at room temperature, and then refrigerate it after opening it.  You can keep some in your cupboard, so you always have milk on hand.  How convenient is that?  I need to stock up on some!

Soyfoods Asociation of North Ameria (SANA) sent me a sample of soy products to try.  When I saw the container of WESTSOY Soymilk, I immediately wanted to make a smoothie with it.

I whipped up a chocolate peanut butter smoothie for breakfast and my kids slurped it up.  Delicious!  If you have a good blender add some spinach to it and no one will know that they're getting veggies too. 




Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

Serves 1

  • 1 c. WESTSOY Organic Original Soymilk
  • 1 banana
  • 2 T. (heaping) chocolate drink powder (like Nesquick)
  • 1 T. peanut butter (or other nut butter)
  • 2/3 c. crushed ice
Combine all ingredients in a blender (or use an immersion blender) and blend until smooth. Pour into glass and enjoy! 

The Soyfoods Asociation of North Ameria (SANA) has lots of information about the health benefits of soy.  And they have lots of delicious recipes to try.  


Soy Milk Scalloped Potatoes and Edamame Hummus are just a few of the yummy looking recipes!

One Hour Rolls

These rolls are amazing!  I've been making these rolls since 2001 when I was a newlywed and my sister-in-law shared the recipe with me.  The rolls are light, fluffy, easy to make and they only take one hour!  And delicious too!   I've made these rolls more times than I can count, so I've perfected the art of making them.  Here are some step-by-step instructions with pictures for you. Here's what you'll need.  I buy pretty much all of the ingredients in this recipe at Sam's club, thus the huge containers.  You need warm water, yeast, oil, sugar, salt, egg and flour. In the mixer bowl, add warm water (not hot), oil, sugar and yeast.  Mix together. After ten or fifteen minutes the yeast mixture should be puffed up like this.  Time to add the salt and beaten egg. Then mix in the flour.  (I've used a mixture of half wheat and half white flour successfully.) Keep adding flour until the dough is manageable.  It will be a little sticky, b

The Best French Bread I've Ever Made

This is the best french bread I've ever made.  I got this recipe from my friend, Nikki, who gave us some of this bread as a thank you for my hubby helping them move a piano.  I remember it being delicious and we gobbled it up fast.  I was intimidated for some reason by the recipe and waited a few years before I made it. We needed some bread for to make some turkey, provolone, avocado sandwiches, so I made some of this bread and it was perfect!  We sliced one loaf like they do at Subway.  Then later I made normal shaped sandwiches with the rest of the bread.  Delicious... light and fluffy and yummy! Update 2/22/12: This is still my favorite bread after making it for a year! It turns out perfect every time and it's gone in a flash! printable recipe French Bread recipe from my friend, Nikki Yield: 2 loaves   Ingredients 2 c. warm water 1 pkg (or 1 heaping Tbsp.) yeast 1/4 c. granulated sugar 1 T. olive oil

One Hour Breadsticks

I got this fast and easy recipe for breadsticks from my sister over 10 years ago. I've been making it ever since. Give them a try. They're super easy and yummy! Printable recipe One Hour Breadsticks recipe from my sister, Lissa Ingredients 3 c. flour 2 T. sugar 1/2 tsp. salt 1 1/2 c. warm water 1 T. instant yeast Directions Mix all ingredients for three minutes in mixer (I use my kitchenaid), adding more flour if needed so the dough is workable and not too sticky.  Let rest for 10 minutes. Roll out and brush with melted butter, then sprinkle with parmesan cheese and garlic salt/powder.  Put on greased pan and cut into breadsticks. (I use a pizza cutter to cut them).  Let rest for 10 minutes.  Bake for 15 - 20 minutes at 350 or until lightly browned. My notes: I usually half this recipe and it fills up almost a whole cookie sheet or a pizza stone. If you want to
