Mocha Nice Cream Shake (Vegan)

Inspired by my recent trip to Italy, I set out to create a healthy affogato-like treat to snack on over the weekend. Affogato, meaning "drowned"  in Italian, is a coffee-based dessert that takes the form of a scoop of vanilla gelato "drowned" in a shot of hot espresso. Instead of a hot shot of espresso, I made a mocha shake using an instant [...]

Peaches & Cream + Matcha Kiwi Popsicles

Celebrating the final days of summer with some more delicious fruity popsicles! This time I used up fresh local organic peaches from the farmer's market to make some dairy-free peaches and cream popsicles. I had some kiwis as well, so decided to pair them with matcha for an extra pop of color. To get that creamy consistency while going [...]

Are you getting your 8-10 servings of vegetables and fruits? One of my favorite ways to ensure I'm getting enough veggies is by having smoothies. Fruits, I love to eat on their own. But vegetables I prefer to get them either in smoothies or salads. My favorite go-to's beside greens are frozen cauliflower and zucchini that add [...]

Fruity Summer Popsicles (V,GF)

Don't you love it when you open up the freezer on a hot summer day and find a popsicle hidden in the corner? I used to love fruity popsicles as a kid. There was a guy selling them in front of our school and I remember my friends and I impatiently waiting for classes to be [...]

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)

By | 2017-06-05T21:58:55+00:00 June 5th, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

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 [...]

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 [...]
