Today on The Mom's View, Colette walks us through how to make a delicious sweet potato pie smoothie that she recently learned how to make from her friend Ceciley (@cecmonster).

Here is the recipe to Ceciley's sweet potato pie smoothie:
- Juice 1 sweet potato or Yam
- Juice 1 thick ring of a pineapple
- Juice 1 inch of ginger
- Pour juice into blender
- Add 2 medjool dates
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
- Cinnamon to taste
- Splash of almond or coconut milk

Haha! I bet that "smoothie" tasted absolutely TERRIBLE because raw (juiced) sweet potatoes DO NOT taste like cooked sweet potatoes!!! Not even close! They have to be baked in the oven for quite a while in order to break down the fiber and release the natural sugars that make them taste so yummy! These ladies did a decent job of faking it though! Hahaha! I just hope the blonde lady didn't finish her glass, cause if she did, she probably spent a late-night hour or two perched atop her porcelain buddha with a bad case of Shaky Leg Syndrome!!!!!! If you don't know what I'm talking about, go back and listen from 1:07-1:16 for a clue!!! Worst case scenario: The blonde lady might be walking with a limp and carrying a Hemorrhoid cushion in the next TMV episode ... now you'll know why! You are welcome! : )
Hello love ladies. anyone have any advice for weening a 2-year-old off a soother? I've weaned her down to just having it at nap time and bedtime but I want to slowly get her to just bedtime then completely off it. If I just take it away I know it won't be a good idea. any advice from Collette, Kayli, Carlie or any mom's watching, please help. I'm a 1st-time mom and have no clue how to do it.
A date is a palm fruit that typically grown in more arid regions! its actually not dried, it just grows like that! There are tons of date verities and some are sweeter and softer than others. I use dates as a natural sweeter in baking, oatmeal, and in smoothies like you are doing here. You can also blend up dates into a thick paste and use it as "vegan caramel" and dip fruit in it. My favorite way to eat dates is to take the pit out and stuff it with a little bit of peanut butter! Yum!
Well at least it was vegan! lol, I really dont get the 'sweet' potato pumpkin, pie thing you guys have in the US. It seems so strange to make those things into deserts, that said I would like to try it one day! Also just another random suggestion but you guys should try wearing Hijabs for a week. I think it would be really interesting to see your experience especially considering you live in small towns where almost everyone is of the same religion, not that the Hijab is just a Muslim thing of course - but in the modern era unless your a Catholic nun its pretty much assumed to be a Muslim thing. The history of the Hijab dates back before Islam and even Christianity, really even before Judaism as it was a cultural thing before religious Im pretty sure. Mary pbuh being a good example that wearing the head scarf/hijab isnt just a Muslim thing. Just a suggestion, I think it would be cool to see your experience with it, any challenges or benefits, anything really. Possibly even an act of solidarity with other Muslim women who are profiled for it. :) x
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Give the world your best & it may never be enough.
Give your best anyway.
That looks really good. I'd love to try it but I'd have to drag out my juicer:)
I'm not sure if this would be considered a fall recipe but I just tried making a batch of Earl Grey tea muffins. They're vegan and totally delicious.
Why celebrate LGBT Pride? The history of oppression for LGBT persons has centered around notions of appropriateness/normality and invisibility. LGBT persons have often lost their families, their friends, their employment and their lives because others have deemed the way they love to be inappropriate or abnormal. Our society has a strong sense of gendered normality: Men do x and women do Y. Indeed, who we are allowed to love has historically been linked to that which is deemed appropriate for our gender. When an individual chooses to live with integrity, as an authenticate person, despite the societal dangers of doing so, they exemplify Pride; that is worthy of celebration. The freedom possessed by todays lgbt students was made possible by the courage and strength of individuals who refused to feel shame for who they were and Who lived authentically and openly, winning straight allies along the way. Instead of lamenting the paucity of role models living authentically when we, as educators, were in school, perhaps we are called to be the role model we wished we had had! Now, and every day, is the time for Pride!

May 22nd is Education Support Professionals Day!!
As educators, we know the crucial role played by the thousands of paraprofessionals, office workers, bus drivers, custodians and maintenance staff in our schools and/or Community Colleges. In fact, it would be difficult to imagine a school going for one day without ESPs.
When we talk about strengthening our schools, we need to strengthen everyone who works within them. Along with recruiting and retaining quality teachers, we must recruit and retain quality education support professionals. To do that, it certainly means providing decent wages and benefits to the people who spend their days making sure our students are safe, well fed and learning.
