Hot Chocolate with Coconut Whipped Cream

Hot Chocolate with Coconut Whipped Cream

This recipe is my most versatile chocolate recipe. It’s just healthy enough that you don’t have to feel guilty about having it for breakfast, but decadent enough for a most satisfying dessert. While you might not think that coconut whipped cream would be as good, let me assure you that it is. I love chocolate, I crave chocolate really so this recipe is perfect for a spur of the moment chocolate craving. It’s so fast, looks amazing, and is so chocolaty and good. If I’m really in a hurry, I just make the hot chocolate without the extras.

Fresh Pineapple Crisp with Coconut Whipped Cream

Pineapple Crisp

This Pineapple Crisp is a little different than a usual crisp, it’s not baked. It is just fresh fruit, a macadamia nut topping, and coconut lime whipped cream. What does that mean for you? It means that in 20 minutes you can have a great dessert that is healthy enough to eat for breakfast.

Lean Green Smoothie

Lean Green Smoothie

I was a latecomer to the green smoothie world. Every time I would see a recipe I couldn’t help but think: how could that be good? I finally took the plunge and put some fruit and greens in the blender. In full disclosure, there have been a few combinations that were not to be repeated. However perseverance pays off because this one is really good.

5 Minute Raspberry Sauce

5 MInute Raspberry Sauce

I have found this recipe to be really adaptable, from breakfast to dessert. It is really good cold, out of the fridge for breakfast, and absolutely delectable when spooned over Greek yogurt or a cashew cream. I have made it to serve alongside my chocolate tart, and don’t even get me started on how good it is over coconut ice cream. If there happens to be any around after a few days I add the rest to a smoothie for breakfast.

Basil Vinaigrette

Basil Vinaigrette

This dressing is like summer in a jar. It is zesty, bright and perks up anything I have put it on. Mostly we use this dressing for green salads, but it is also really good tossed together with new potatoes in the Spring. You can even put it to use for breakfast. Take about ten cherry tomatoes cut in half, toss with a little dressing and serve over an omelet.

This basic, easy to assemble salad is a follow-up post to the Roasted Sweet Potatoes. Together these two recipes make up dinner at least once a week for us. This recipe is just a guide, you can use whatever vegetables you have on hand. Sometimes I use only a couple of vegetable toppings if I’m in a hurry or we haven’t been grocery shopping in a bit. The point is this dinner is about being easy and customizable.
