Really Cheap Milk

Instead of buying skim (nonfat) milk, buy 2% milk for about the same price and then mix it 50-50 with water. It looks like skim milk and tastes like it, too.

Hot Peanut Sauce

Stir to make paste:
4 Tbs. chunky peanut butter
4 Tbs. milk or water
2 Tbs. sweet soy sauce
1/4 tsp. ground red pepper or to taste
1 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1 bay leaf
Mix and let stand several hours to blend flavors. Remove bay leaf before serving.

Healthy Frozen Fruit Blend

Blend several fruits of your choice. (Apples, oranges, strawberries, bananas etc.)
Add one or two cups of liquid - either fruit juice or milk works well. If desired, add some yogurt, honey (to sweeten) or vanilla.
Pour into a container and place in teh freezer. Before eating, let thaw for ten to fifteen minutes.
