Peach Mango Sorbet

Peach Mango Sorbet - Paleo

The peaches are so good this year, and I have been finding ways to enjoy them almost every day while they are fresh and in season. One of the ways I have been eating them is by making a fresh sorbet with peaches and mango in my blender for instant sorbet. I peel and dice the fresh fruit and freeze it first. Find the full recipe below.

Peaches are packed with nutrition and soluable fiber and aid digestion. Here’s a great article on 18 Amazing Benefits of Peaches including skin health, vision, immune system and anti-aging properties. I added just 1 1/2 tablespoons of low glycemic coconut sugar to the recipe that serves three. It is important to buy organic peaches, because they are on the dirty dozen list.

Here’s the simple and delicious recipe for you to enjoy!

Peach Mango Sorbet

Ingredients:

2 Organic Peaches, Washed, Peeled, Diced and Frozen

1 Mango, Washed, Peeled, Diced and Frozen

1 Tablespoon of Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice

1 1/2 Tablespoons of Coconut Sugar

Directions: Add all the ingredients to a high speed blender with a plunger (I used a Vitamix) and blend until thick and creamy. Serve immediately, or place the sorbet in a glass freezer dish and freeze for later. If you save it for later, remove the sorbet from the freezer and let it sit on the counter for ten to fifteen minutes to soften.

Enjoy your day!

How I Save on Healthy Groceries at Thrive Market Online

beautiful-girl-eating-healthy-food

One of the things I hear often as a health coach is how expensive it is to eat healthy and organic good. It is true that the food isles are full of cheap food that is not good for our health but is easier on the pocketbook. I used to eat that way too, but I literally changed my life, health and energy by choosing to change my diet, because the cost down the road was going to be much greater than spending more of my budget on healthy food, plus I get to feel amazing now and hopefully prevent the diseases later that are afflicting so many people eating the SAD Diet (aka standard American diet).

I haven’t written a blog post about how I save money and feed myself, kids and husband delicious healthy food and afford the better household cleaners, skin care products and supplements. I shop at Thrive Market! It is a membership online health food store, and there are no strings to try it out. They let you shop and save 25% to 50% off retail for 30 days, like members, to try them out at no charge! That’s a lot of cold hard cash! If you like them, and they have thousands of products to choose from that I was buying all the time at the store, you can join for $59.95 a year, and believe me, you will save that in your first purchase if you have a couple people in your household, and in the first month if you are single. Thrive cuts out the middle man and they negotiate with the manufacturers so they can offer products to us cheaper than retail. I am on my second year of membership and have saved just under $1,500. each year! Wow!

Another thing I just love about Thrive is for every membership someone signs up for, they give one to a needy family for free. I also never pay shipping, because any purchase over $49. is free shipping.

Thrive has the brands I am always talking about here and so much more. It is an online grocery store, less the perishable items like fresh produce and meat,  since they don’t ship cold things, except they will ice your chocolate bars in the hot months! My favorite chocolate bars (Alter Eco 85% Dark Chocolate) are $1.50 less at Thrive than my local store.

The link to check out Thrive is below. I hope you give them a try. They also have many items I can’t get unless I order online. Yesterday I saved $94.40 off retail and purchased items like coconut oil, coffee, laundry detergent, canned salmon, almond flour, coconut flour, coconut milk (the Thrive Brand is awesome!), olive oil, vanilla extract, 85% dark chocolate bars, Primal Kitchen’s Avocado Oil Mayo, back to school kids snacks, etc. I really love this company! The link is right below.
