I have been experimenting with Thrive life and trying to incorporate more into my daily cooking. It’s been so much fun! I know the importance of getting fruits and vegetables wherever I can and using Thrive Life food in my home recipes has been the perfect way to pack more nutrition into my cooking. A couple of months ago, as part of my Thrive quest, I pulverized some Thrive Life strawberries and put them into my late-night chocolate pudding snack thinking chocolate pudding with strawberries sounded so good! Since then, I have become a scientist in the kitchen! I started pulverizing all the things and adding them into everything! I was shocked at how the flavor of all of my food sparked new life and zest into my cooking. Thrive packs a powerful punch whether it is savory or sweet and brings all the natural nutrition to each serving!
BANANA BREAD WITH A TWIST
My experimenting didn’t stop with just puddings and smoothies… I even tried it on some of my favorite baked goods recipes and IT TOTALLY WORKED! We all know how good my Grandma Helen’s Banana Bread is, right? Well, I just mixed things up and I am so excited to share this recipe with you!
I pulverized a handful of strawberries and threw them into the batter before baking and voila, a masterpiece that my kids and I love. I want to try bran muffins next with apples, carrots, and zucchini!
This month Strawberries, blueberries, and a few more of my favorite Thrive products are on sale.
