Beets & Greens Detox Smoothie

This is the sweetest and creamiest way to cleanse and hit the reset button after the holiday madness. I love a good refreshing smoothie that doesn't taste like you are downing raw vegetables.  This one contains an entire beet with the greens plus more greens and you would never know it.  This smoothie is my new favorite

Vegan Mexican Hot Chocolate

Sometimes we just need a little hot cocoa to pass the long, cold days of winter. This spicy and luxurious drink will warm you from the inside out on a chilly day.  It is made from scratch using the perfect blend of spices for a spectacular sweet and spicy decadent combo. Made with creamy plant-based

Cooking with Purpose + 3 Warm Drinks for Chilly Winter Days (Turmeric Latte, Chai Latte & Hot Chocolate)

As we begin the new year, I am thinking more and more about cooking with purpose and what that means to me.  For me, cooking and eating is about three main pillars: 1) the experience of preparing a homemade meal, 2) the impact the ingredients have on my health and 3) the impact of what I

Vegan Chai Latte

Ditch the expensive, store-bought coffee shop chai lattes for this authentic, homemade version that is dairy-free and naturally sweetened with a touch of maple syrup.  It is simple to make and so much better than those sneaky chai tea powder mixes with mystery ingredients and additives.  Using freshly brewed black tea and real spices boosts

3-Ingredient Creamsicle Smoothie

This is my go-to smoothie when I'm looking for a quick, refreshing immune-boost.  This recipe serves two, but honestly sometimes I gulp down the entire batch myself.  One batch has an entire orange in it (minus the rind).  This means you are getting all the amazing benefits this fruit has to offer including all the fiber

Vegan Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake

Each year, September rolls around and as I start to mourn the end of summer I also start itching for some pumpkin in my life.  Last year, my favorite pumpkin recipes included Pumpkin Pie Vegan Overnight Oats (the perfect, easy fall breakfast), Garlic-Maple Pumpkin Hummus (you just have to trust me on this one - amazing!)

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

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

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

Healthy Strawberry “Milkshake”

I'm always pleased when a recipe comes together quickly and easily with just five simple (and healthy) ingredients.  And this one really tastes like the real thing but without the dairy and refined sugar.  This vegan spin on a strawberry milkshake is not only thick and creamy but is bursting with sweet strawberry flavor with a

Green Aid

Talk about a reset drink: Green-Aid to the rescue!  When I need to start fresh, I go for this five-ingredient, easy to make drink.  It reboots my systems and literally makes me feel like I'm glowing from the inside out.  It more than quenches my thirst and provides loads of beneficial nutrients.  I find cucumbers and parsley help

Healthy Orange Julius

This drink is like a liquid creamsicle (think: vanilla and orange flavor combo).  I feel like a sophisticated kid drinking this frothy, cool, creamy, orange-y sweet treat :) It is not thick or quite as filling as a milkshake or smoothie.  Instead, it is lightly frozen, slightly creamy and very frothy.  A classic orange julius is made

Beet Me Up Smoothie

Feeling beat up this winter already?  When I need to detox, feel energized and give my body a fresh start I turn to this cleansing smoothie.  It is sweet, refreshing and creamy and doesn't taste like you are downing raw vegetables.  It is easily the most vibrant smoothie I have ever made.  It's bright pinkish-red color says it
