Healthier Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Smoothie Recipe

Healthier Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Smoothie Recipe

While my sister and I couldn’t be more different, my cousin (Joy) and I couldn’t be more similar. That’s why I wasn’t at all surprised that she spent the week she was visiting perfecting her chocolate chip cookie smoothie recipe. And boy am I thankful…

Ginger Cranberry Smoothie (Banana-Free)

Ginger Cranberry Smoothie (Banana-Free)

Bet you never expected cranberries in a smoothie. That makes two of us. No, I’m not trying to start a new superfood trend. Honestly, this smoothie was born out of the abundance of leftover cranberries from the holidays that are now crowding my freezer. But,…

Anti-Inflammatory Blueberry Turmeric Smoothie Recipe

Did you overindulge during the holidays? Me too. Two weeks later, I still feel bloated, heavy, and just blah. It seems as though it’s taking longer than usual to feel back to “normal”. It’s kind of like I have a really big holiday hangover. Please…

Blackberry Smoothie with Walnuts (Banana-Free)

Blackberry Smoothie with Walnuts (Banana-Free)

I LOVE Sprouts. Sure, their selection can be limited at times, but you can’t beat their prices – especially when it comes to organic produce. Case in point, yesterday they had small clam shells of organic blackberries for 97¢. Yes, you read that correctly. Ninety-seven…

Creamy No Fruit Smoothie

I’m all about smoothies for breakfast. Not only are they an easy way to start the day packed with good nutrients, but it also takes decision making out of the equation when you’re pressed for time and much more likely to grab something unhealthy out of…

5-Ingredient Healthy Date Bars (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

A new recipe, a new confession: I LOVE dates. My love of dates goes beyond healthy. Needless to say, I cannot keep them in my house. Because, if they are in the house, they aren’t there for long. Case in point: when my mom and…

Coconut Mocha Protein Balls

Coconut Mocha Protein Balls

The Peanut Butter Mocha Protein Smoothie I made last week opened new doors for me. That usually happens. I find a new ingredient and I get obsessed with it for awhile, trying to figure out everything I can do with it. It’s led to some…

Vegan Peanut Butter Mocha Protein Smoothie

Vegan Peanut Butter Mocha Protein Smoothie

I have a confession to make. One that goes against the female stereotype and makes my mom wonder if I was switched at birth and not, in fact, her biological daughter. I don’t like chocolate. Seriously, chocolate is NOT my thing. When given the choice…
