Berkshire Apple Jacks Smoothie

From The Spot in Pittsfield, MA

This healthy breakfast/afternoon pick me up is a delicious treat that tastes like fall, and it’s everything you want in a smoothie. The combination of flavors is just right. This special can be found at The Spot in Pittsfield, MA. Or you can bring the taste of fall to your own kitchen and make it right at home!

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces oat milk (or milk of your choice)
  • 1 apple (we used a combo of sliced up Macintosh and Honey Crisp from Woodlife Ranch)
  • 1 ounce Woodlife Ranch Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 cup of honey oats granola
  • 1 scoop of Bear Butter
  • 1 big frozen banana
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg

Directions:

  • Toss in a blender and blend away! Use more or less of any of the ingredients to adjust it to your preference.

Woodlife Ranch Smoothie

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie with Honey

Option to add spinach or kale, you won’t taste it!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Banana (preferably frozen)
  • 2 tbsp Peanut Butter
  • 1 tbsp Woodlife Ranch Raw Honey
  • ½ cup Milk or Milk Alternative of Your Choice (Almond, Oat, Soy, Coconut, etc)
  • Handful of Spinach or Kale

Directions:

  • Toss in a blender and blend away! Use more or less of any of the ingredients to adjust it to your preference.

Woodlife Ranch Brie and crackers

Brie and crackers topped with Woodlife Ranch Honey. Easy and delicious.

Maybe our favorite way to do cheese and crackers now. The triple cream mushroom brie from Trader Joe’s is especially delicious with this, placed on Trader Joe’s Brioche Toasts. Add a drizzle or a dollop of Woodlife Ranch Honey and you’re good to go!

You can get creative with this and try different types of cheeses and crackers. We also used thyme and sage for extra flavor and they worked well as pretty little garnishes too!

Woodlife Ranch Backwoods Brussels Sprouts

Balsamic and maple glazed brussels sprouts with pancetta and toasted maple pecans

If you’d like to make this a vegetarian meal, the pancetta is totally optional, (but cooking the brussels sprouts in the fat is soooo tasty.) All of the amounts below can be changed slightly, we like to taste as we go and make adjustments!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Brussel Sprouts, halved
  • ⅓ pound Pancetta, diced
  • 1 cup Pecans (we used whole pecans, half them or dice them if you prefer)
  • 3 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Woodlife Ranch Maple Syrup (this recipe is delicious with any one of our 5 syrups)
  • ½ tbsp Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a bowl, toss brussels sprouts and pecans together with olive oil, balsamic, and maple syrup.
  • Roast for 30 minutes in preheated oven.
  • While sprouts and pecans are roasting, sauté diced pancetta in a large nonstick pan, cooking until golden brown.
  • Remove brussels and pecans from oven and transfer into the stove top pan with pancetta, mix it all up and sauté for another 10 minutes or so, option to use high heat if you want it crispy.
  • (If you are skipping the pancetta, you will still sauté the brussels and pecans stove top when you take them out of the oven)
  • Do a taste test and decide if you want to add salt, pepper, and/or more maple and balsamic.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Emily’s Trail Carrots

Honey Roasted Carrots

This one is super easy and delicious!

Ingredients:

  • Place whole carrots into baking dish or baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil.
  • Mix around until carrots are completely covered with olive oil.
  • Pour on the honey.
  • Bake in oven for 40 minutes to an hour. The longer they cook, the tenderer and softer they will get.
