Vegan Chocolate Hazelnut Tart

Today we're pairing decadence with no-bake convenience in this Nutella inspired tart. It looks impressive, yet it's quite easy to make. Although I won't deceive you, peeling the hazelnuts takes a little time, that will more than rewarded when you take your first bite! The ultimate dessert for me is one that can be made ahead, and kept in the ...

Carrot Cake Energy Bites

Who doesn't need all the comforting flavors of carrot cake wrapped up into a healthy snack!?! It's clearly no secret around here that we love energy bites. They're so easy to make, and they're absolutely invaluable for keeping me on track for healthy eating. It seems like more often than not I'm in need of a quick snack, and these ...

Healthy Broccoli Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing

This is my interpretation of the classic broccoli salad - but there's no mayonnaise in this version! Not that I have anything against mayo, (I love homemade mayo) but I've never cared for it as a salad dressing. However, I do like things creamy as a general rule, so I used avocado to make this deliciously creamy dressing. I've been ...

Savory Vegan Cashew Cream Sauce

If you're in need of a good dairy free cream sauce, today's your lucky day! But even if you're not dairy free, hang with me for a moment to revel in the lusciousness of this incredible sauce. When I posted my family's special occasion recipe for Life Changing Rosemary Mushroom Cream Sauce around the holidays, I received lots of requests ...

No Bake Fudge Frosted Brownies

I teased you a while back with a picture of these right around Christmas time, and I fully intended to get you the recipe right away. But... I got distracted with these Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins and then there was some Chocolate Fudge Skillet Cake. And somehow 10 weeks flew by, so you'll have to accept my full apologies for ...

Golden Milk Tropical Turmeric Smoothie

I've been into all things tropical during the last couple months. I think it's because winter is starting to feel extra long, and I just can't wait to feel the warm sun on my face again! I thought I might get a little reprieve when I went to California to work for a week, but they had unusually cold weather, ...

Chocolate Fudge Skillet Cake

Today is about chocolate, because it's the weekend and I love chocolate. This cake is so quick and easy to make, it's all too easy to get yourself into trouble having too much of it around! Now... I know it's been a few weeks since there's been a chocolate recipe, (see Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins) but rest assured I have a few ...

Mango Lime Green Smoothie

It's been a while since I stumbled across a new green smoothie combo that I just couldn't stop drinking. But finally I have another great one for you! It's filled with tropical ingredients which is always a bonus about this time of the year, and it's incredibly refreshing, with a little zip from fresh lime. I've been using frozen mango ...

Cranberry Orange Smoothie Bowl

I first made my Vitamin C Booster Cranberry Orange Smoothie 3 years ago, and I been making it nonstop ever since. But sometimes I'm more in the mood to eat something while at the same time craving fresh flavors. Whenever that mood strikes, I always opt for a smoothie bowl. So I've altered one of my favorite smoothies of all ...
