Fruit isn't the only useful product of a tree!  Leaves can be used in a variety of ways including homemade tea!  Throw these ingredients in a pot and enjoy your one-of-a-kind tea in minutes!

My Herbal Tea

Ingredients

10 small red currant leaves

5 small blackberry leaves

2 sprigs mint

3 sprigs melissa

3 springs wild thyme

1 small apple

1 small pear

3-4 tbsp dry nettle / green tea / black tea

8 cups boiling water

honey for serving

Directions

Wash all the herbs and leaves thoroughly. Thinly slice the apple and pear. Rinse a porcelain pot with boiling water. Place all the ingredients into the warmed up porcelain pot and pour boiling water over in. Cover with a lead and wrap in a clean kitchen towel and let brew for 10 minutes. Serve right away with honey. If you don’t drink all the tea at once it’s better to pour the remaining tea through the strainer and discard the leaves (chill the tea, if you like) – there is nothing worse than the tea that has been brewed way too long (over 1 hour).

Note: the flavor of the tea may appear subtle to you if you have not had tea of fresh leaves, herbs and leaves before. To give it stronger flavor you can replace dry nettle with regular green or black tea.

Serves: 8

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Juice blender bender
Good news: You don’t need a juicer to whip up refreshing and super healthy drinks. All our recipes can be made in your blender—so no specialty equipment is needed. Because of the fiber in fresh fruit and vegetable purées, these concoctions vary in thickness: You can adjust to your taste preference simply by adding a little water. And no matter which juice you choose, you’ll get good-for-you benefits in every sip.

Want a smoothie instead?
Combine 1 cup juice from any recipe, 1 cup ice cubes, 1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt, and 1 medium peeled banana in a blender. Purée until smooth. http://ow.ly/AFlGg

All you need is 5 simple ingredients, a processor, 15 minutes of prep time, and 15 minutes in the oven to enjoy these delicious vegan cookies.

Healthy Vegan Cookies | 5 ingredients, 1 bowl, less than 30 minutes required | MINIMALISTBAKER.COM

Ingredients

1 cup Dates, packed (soaked for 10 minutes in warm water and then drained)

1 medium ripe banana

2 Tbsp all natural, salted almond butter or peanut butter

3/4 cup almond meal (ground from raw almonds)

3/4 cup gluten free rolled oats

Optional add-ins: dried fruit, dairy-free chocolate chips, flaxseed, seeds, nuts

Directions

Add dates to a food processor and pulse until small bits remain.

Add banana and almond butter and mix again until combined, scraping down the sides as needed.

5 Ingredient Vegan Cookie Dough | minimalistbaker.com

Next add the almond meal and rolled oats and pulse until a loose dough is formed. It will be kind of wet and sticky. That’s OK! You’re on the right track.

Scrape your dough into a mixing bowl. If it feels too wet to the touch to form into cookies, add another few Tbsp of almond meal and/or oats and stir. I added another few tablespoons of each until I was able to form them into cookies without them sticking to my hands.

At this point, you can add in 1/4 cup of your mix-in of choice, such as dairy-free dark chocolate chips, raisins or nuts. Then chill dough for 10 minutes and preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Scoop out 1 Tbsp amounts of your cookie dough and form into loose discs, then arrange on a parchment lined baking sheet. They won’t expand so pack them closer together (but not touching).

5 Ingredient Vegan Oatmeal Cookies | minimalistbaker.com

Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown and somewhat firm to the touch. The good thing about these cookies is a little under-baked is OK since there’s no eggs, and they’ll ultimately just be a little more moist.

Remove and let set for a few minutes on the pan, then carefully transfer to a plate or cooling rack to cool. Serve immediately.

Store leftovers in an airtight container for several days. Move to the fridge or freezer for longer term storage.

 

Yields 2 dozen

Prep time: 15 minutes

Total time: Approximately 30 minutes

Here are a few of our favorite ways to organize your house with repurposed household items.

Ice Cube Tray Jewelry Storage

Ice Cube Tray Organizer

It's easy to lose those stud earrings or extra buttons from that expensive pea coat you purchased last winter. Instead of having a junk drawer, use an ice cube tray to keep it organized. Now you'll know exactly where to go if that one-of-a-kind button goes missing.

Cord Organization

Binder-Clip Cord Organizer

With so many new gadgets these days, wires can make your home office desk look cluttered. To keep them at bay, attach binder clips to the edge of your desk, and place the cords through the clips. This will also make it easy to plug in your electronics.

Organized Coloring Station

Dish-Rack Coloring Station

Organize your craft supply in a dish drying rack. Coloring books stay put in the grates, while the silverware tray stores crafting tools, such as colored pencils and scissors.

Menus on Display

Organized Menu Folder

Is your collection of takeout menus out of control? Keep them in one place by placing them in a plastic folder and adhering the folder to the inside of your kitchen cabinet.

Jewelry Storage and Organizer

Silverware Tray Displays Your Jewelry

While this project really works great with a wooden silverware tray (because you can paint it any color), a plastic version will suffice. It's glam enough to leave out in the open, but also smart enough to stuff into a drawer without worrying that your jewelry will get lost or tangled.

Ladder Drying Rack

Ladder Drying Rack

Laundry can take over your entire house. Hang an old ladder from your ceiling, allowing you to dry clothes in once place rather than scattered throughout your home.
