Chocolate Gingerbread Granola

Making your own granola is one of the easiest things you can do in the kitchen! Not only is it quick and simple, but it's also much healthier and more cost-effective. Most store-bought brands have questionable oils and lots of refined sugar added and the healthier ones are often quite expensive. That's why I prefer to [...]

Using up the last plums of the season and some juicy prunes in a creamy decadent dessert--a marriage between a raw "cheesecake" and a tart! So I'm calling it "P&P cheesecake tart"! My husband suggested the name "P^2 Cheesecake Tart", but I guess that's a bit too... geeky?! ;) Whatever you may call it, this fruity melt-in-your-mouth [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
