1 container Chobani Greek yogurt, the flavor of your choice
3 1" chunks frozen banana
3 frozen strawberries
4-5 cubes frozen mango (I use Melissa’s)
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1 packet Coconut/Pineapple EmergenC
Use your Bullet or standard blender and place ingredients in the order listed into the jar. Blend for 30 to 45 seconds. Pour into a tall glass and enjoy.
In case you're curious, here is the reasoning behind the use of every ingredient:
Bananas. Always! Recent studies have shown that the protein in bananas known as banana lethicin may not only shorten the length of a virus, but contains antiviral properties that may prevent you from getting one in the first place.
Yogurt. One serving a day labeled with "live and active cultures" will enhance immune function.
Strawberries contain vitamin C and immune boosting antioxidants.
Mangoes are packed with immunity-boosting Vitamin A, as well as the powerful antioxidant Vitamin C, also known to shorten the duration of colds.
EmergenC speaks for itself. :-)

6 ounces sliced cremini mushrooms
1 medium yellow onion, sliced
1-14.5 ounce can low-sodium beef broth
1 1-ounce package brown gravy mix
2 tablespoons catsup
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
1-1/2 pounds ground chuck
1 egg yolk
1/4 cup dried minced onion
1/3 cup Panko crumbs
3 tablespoons whole milk
1 clove garlic minced
1/4 teaspoon Montreal steak seasoning
2 tablespoons cornstarch
4 tablespoons water
Spray slow cooker with Pam; line bottom with mushrooms and onions.
Combine beef patty ingredients and form into six patties. Place 1-2 Tablespoons of olive oil into a 10" skillet and heat until oil starts to shimmer. Brown patties over medium-high heat about three minutes per side. Remove to a plate lined with paper towels and allow draining for a moment or two. Place the beef patties on top of the mushrooms and onions in the slow cooker. Combine sauce ingredients, and pour over beef patties. Cook on the low setting for 5 hours.
Remove patties to a warm plate; set aside. Turn slow cooker to high, combine cold water and cornstarch, and stir into the sauce. Allow to cook a few minutes until thickened, and then return beef patties to the sauce. Let heat through, about 5 to 10 additional minutes. Serve over mashed potatoes or alongside rice.

On a positive note, the coconut cake was phenomenal! The best coconut cake I think I have ever eaten. In fact, it is the best pound cake I've ever eaten, coconut or otherwise. I tinkered with a couple of recipes to come up with this one, and, instead of icing mine, because I'm not a huge fan of super sweet icing, I made up a glaze and drizzled it over the warm cakes. It gave them a nice sheen, and an extra good taste. Then, I lightly dusted them with sifted powdered sugar. I cannot recommend this cake enough. If you decide to make mini cakes, like I did, you'll be baking them between 10 and 15 minutes less than you would if you were making an entire cake. Just watch them, when the edges turn light brown, and the cake springs back when lightly touched it's done.
