Pina Colada Green Smoothie

I have a history of coming up with a new green smoothie recipe, and then I drink it on repeat for months on end! The only thing I do try and vary is the type of greens I use in my smoothie. This way you don't overdose on one particular green, and you rotate through the different nutrients. Last winter ... Read More

No Bake Caramel Blackberry Cheesecake

No bake cheesecakes are such an awesome dessert, especially for summertime. They're one of my favorite things to bring along to family dinners, potlucks, or pretty much any type of celebration! And since I've had so many requests for a dairy free cheesecake, I decided it was time to get serious about developing one. This cheesecake is not only decadent, ... Read More

Ginger Peach Green Smoothie

I can't decide if I like this smoothie better with peaches or nectarines - they're both so good! If peaches aren't stellar in your area, I'd go with nectarines because they're more reliable than peaches for flavor. We've been lucky enough to get some good peaches this year and I've been going overboard with peach everything! I love it when ... Read More

5 Minute Soft Serve Peach Nice Cream

We've been experiencing an unexpected heat wave lately in Montana. It's been well into the nineties almost every single day, and to be honest, we're just not used to that kind of heat here! I feel pretty lucky since we have a nice cool basement to sleep in whenever the upstairs is unbearable. And we've been grilling pretty much everything, ... Read More

Strawberry Mango Avocado Salsa

This recipe came about entirely by accident. I was trying to picture what sort of topping/salsa I might want on top of my Jalapeno Cilantro Lime Grilled Chicken, (pictured below) when it occurred to me that mango salsa would be really awesome. But of course I was running short on mangos, so I added what I did have, which happened ... Read More

Rainbow Spring Rolls with Sweet Chili Mango Sauce

It might still be pretty cold around here, winter temperature are hanging on with hail one minute, and pouring rain the next. But the grass is slowly turning green, the trees are budding, and I'm in full force Spring mode! I'm so predictable because I do this every year, I jump in full speed ahead into all the nice new ...

Homemade Grain Free Rawnola Cereal

Rawnola aka raw/unbaked granola is definitely a game changer, you might even say life changing! And as you know, I love to save those sweeping overly dramatic statements for super easy recipes that really do change the way you eat. While I'll never loose my obsession for this Maple Cinnamon Granola, I don't always have time to whip up a ... Read More

10 Minute Soft Serve Mango Ice Cream

Fruit based ice creams, or 'nice creams' as they're sometimes known, as are nothing short of revolutionary! They're like a cross between actual ice cream and a sorbet. Another major bonus is they're so fast to make, you can have ice cream in your bowl in just 10 minutes start to finish - it's hard to beat that! I make ... Read More

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 ... Read More
