Little Baker

Nutrition

I am a mommy, and most of the time being a mom comes naturally. I love my babies, I feed my babies, I buy cute and adorable clothes. But sometimes I have to stop and make sure I am not missing anything. Growing up my sisters and I loved baking! My mom never really had sweets in the pantry so if we wanted cookies, we would pull out our measuring cups and spatulas. I loved looking through the Betty Crocker cookbook we had and find yummy recipes that I wanted to create. Cookbooks are basically Pinterest right? Last week I was browsing the baking aisle, thinking about how I rarely bake sweets because I know how easy it is to eat an entire batch to cinnamon rolls by myself! (Why put myself through that right) but I know Ariana would love if I took the time to show her the steps of baking. And I can foster my secret dream of having a child prodigy and in two years she can be on Master Chef Jr! :p So I grabbed the ingredients we would need to make cinnamon coffee cake and gave Ariana the introductory into the world of sugar mixing, cinnamon crusts and spoon licking.

There is nothing healthier for your body than delicious berry smoothie. It is full of vitamins and healthy sugars it taste amazing with no dairy or processed products. I keep lots of frozen fruits so I can always whip up one of these, and that happens at least once a day! You can also use all fresh fruit, it just depends what is in season. Recipe below.
