Healthy Chocolate Mocha Smoothie

This recipe title sounds too good to be true, doesn't it?  It is sort of like a copy-cat, healthy version of a Starbucks Mocha Frappaccino.  But without 9 grams of saturated fat and over 60 grams of sugar (!) AND over 400 calories (!!).  Woah there! This nutritious smoothie has all the amazing qualities of a mocha [...]

This instant, no-bake recipe is freezer friendly making these energy balls perfect for summertime and great for anytime grab-n-go snacks that adults and children both love.  Just mix, form into balls and enjoy!  They actually taste like raw cookie dough (and who doesn’t love that!?) but they are full of whole grains, dietary fiber, healthful fats [...]

Simple Summer Salad with Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

When I dream about the perfect salad (and, yes, sometimes I do that), I think about peppery arugula topped with fresh fruits, candied nuts or seeds and the perfect creamy dressing to bring it all together.  This is that salad plus it contains quinoa for added protein.  This salad is light and just screams summertime.  I [...]

Strawberry Balsamic Dressing

Summertime produce is my jam.  I love spicing up my ho-hum recipes with unexpected flavors and seasonal ingredients.  Adding strawberries to salad dressing is not only fun and delicious but pumps up your vitamin C content.  This dressing contains 1 cup of fresh strawberries and makes about four servings. For me, I always make homemade dressing.  I [...]

Healthy Vegan Blueberry Muffin Smoothie

With this muggy, hot July weather, I’m constantly waking up craving refreshing smoothies for breakfast.  This one is a REAL treat.  It literally tastes like a blueberry muffin.  Blueberry muffins are the best (but not so much with the oven in July).  This is the next best thing.  The oats make this smoothie filling the [...]

Healthy & Creamy Key Lime Pie Popsicles

These creamy, frozen treats make me feel like I'm on a tropical island.  They are bursting with zesty, fresh lime flavor and yet sweet and creamy (did I mention they are creamy??) just like key lime pie should be.  They feature just four ingredients: avocado, lime, non-dairy milk and maple syrup (or agave).  This means [...]

Easy Vegan & Gluten-Free Peach Crisp

Peach crisps are staples at summer barbecues, picnics and parties, making delicious use of in-season fruit. But most recipes are loaded with refined flours and sugars, butter and milk. Paula Deen’s peach cobbler recipe uses an entire stick of butter and two cups of sugar. The nutritional value of the peaches is completely overwhelmed by the high content of [...]

Tropical Green Protein Smoothie

My morning breakfast routine was in a bit of rut.  Coming out of an unseasonably cooler spring, we have now been hit with this hot summery weather and there is no turning back it seems.  I knew I needed my breakfast routine to sort of catch up to the sunshine.  Believe it or not, I now [...]

The BIG Vegan Greek Salad

Sometimes, like Elaine on Seinfeld, I crave the BIG salad. I want lots of crunchy greens but also something that will satisfy me and not make me feel like a bunny eating carrots and romaine.  Elaine Benes was on to something.  This episode basically invented The Big Salad in my book. Well, this Greek salad [...]
