Mocha Almond Popsicles (Vegan)

Long hot sunny summer days call for popsicles! All you need is a set of popsicle molds or you can even use paper cups and popsicle sticks, which although I haven't tried myself, I've heard works. It's a great way to use up leftover smoothies, try new and exciting ice cream flavors, or you could [...]

Superfood Yogurt Granola Mini Tarts (V,GF)

Ever since making this superfood yogurt granola parfait last week, I haven't been able to stop dreaming about its rich taste and texture! Something about the creaminess of thick yogurt mixed with crunchy homemade granola that gets me salivating every time I think about it! Needless to say, I decided to make it again, but this time I played [...]

I have to admit as much as I love smoothies and chia pudding, sometimes I get bored and want to try something new for breakfast. Especially with my parents visiting, I wanted to make them something healthy that not only appeals to the eyes, but also to their rather particular taste buds! Since they both love yogurt and [...]

This thick and creamy chocolate buckwheat smoothie is one of my favorite go-to's every time I'm looking for a luscious filling breakfast. It's perfect for those days when you're on the road or away from your desk/kitchen and not able to snack in the middle of the day. It fills you up for hours thanks to the [...]

Orange Spice Olive Oil Cake (GF,V Option)

By | 2017-05-29T15:06:08+00:00 May 8th, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

To bake or not to bake? Personally, I prefer "unbaking" (preparing raw/frozen treats) to baking, since I often tend to substitute common ingredients used in baked goods such as all-purpose flour, butter, and sugar with more nutritious alternatives. If you've ever baked before, you know that baking is science and chemistry, which is why you [...]

By | 2017-05-03T18:23:53+00:00 May 3rd, 2017|Categories: Breakfast, Brunch, Desserts, Snacks|

As mentioned in one of my recent posts, I've been trying to add more chia pudding recipes to the blog, simply because they're delicious and fun to whip up, not to mention quick, easy, and nutritious! I have explained some of the health benefits of chia seeds in the aforementioned post. So today, I'll be focusing [...]

Chocolate Cups with Moringa Cashew Cream (V,GF)

By | 2017-04-29T19:23:55+00:00 April 29th, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

Dark chocolate cups are one of my favorite go-to's whenever a chocolate craving sets in. This time I decided to boost the nutrient content of this already-nutritious treat by filling the cups with moringa cashew cream. The richness of the dark chocolate is perfectly balanced by the light and fluffy cream nestled inside, yielding an irresistible treat full [...]

Coconut Raspberry Chia Parfait (V,GF)

A peek at my Instagram feed will reveal how much I adore chia seeds, especially when mixed with non-dairy milk or yogurt for a decadent chia pudding! However, I realized besides this saffron rosewater chia pudding, this spring detox smoothie/chia parfait, and this blueberry banana chia pudding, I don't have many chia pudding recipes on the [...]

Homemade Sesame Milk + Sesame Fig Bliss Balls

Have you ever tried making homemade nut or seed milk? If you do, I am pretty sure you will never ever go back to those store-bought cartons! I used to think that making my own nut/seed milk would be quite a time-consuming process. Boy, was I wrong! The only issue there is that you need to [...]

Blueberry Lemon Ice Cream Cake (V,GF)

By | 2017-04-01T22:41:25+00:00 April 1st, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

I made this raw, vegan, and gluten-free ice cream cake a while back and totally forgot about posting the recipe! For some reason, at the time I made it, all I could think about in terms of colors were yellow and purple! Not sure if you're also like me where each of your days has [...]
