It’s a beautiful November day here in Southern California so I whipped up this slushie to energize me for cooking all day (and cool down, it’s hot out today!) It’s super easy to make- only 3 ingredients! But it was really delicious so I figured I’d post it 😉 Strawberries are going out of season but I bought some 3-packs at the farmer’s market recently, de-stemmed and froze them for smoothies.
This makes a very large, delicious green smoothie (I split it with my boyfriend in two 32-ounce mason jars).
This was super delicious and it reminded me of one of those Wendy’s frosty shakes I used to drink when I was a kid- only this version is way healthier, plant-based and protein-packed. I know I said this on my last Vega post but I do not have any affiliation with them- I’ve just been trying their powders lately and loving some of the recipes I’ve been making, thus sharing them with you!
I had a few ripened bananas in my fruit basket so I decided to make these heathy & delicious Oatmeal Raisin Cinnamon Banana-Nut Muffins for the week with what I had in my kitchen. They’re gluten and soy-free plus there’s nothing artificial in them! Just oats, fruits, nuts, spices and maple syrup (that was tapped from my grandfathers maple tree in Michigan.) They’re perfect for a light breakfast, snacks or accompanying a bowl of soup or salad with your dinner.
Yesterday my friend Jenny came over for lunch and she made me this fruit salad that was so yummy I had to share, so I’m calling her my guest chef today on the blog 😉 This delicious and light fruit dish is perfect as a side or healthy dessert this summer. Feel free to swap out the fruits with any other favorite fruits you have that are in season. Jenny picked out the colors based on the rainbow.
A sweet tropical treat.
Quesadilla Fest 2014 continues with delicious Banana Maple Nut Quesadillas. These remind me a lot of crepes in a way, only healthier. They’re gluten and soy-free, contain one serving of fruit (thank you banana!), they’re sweet without actually having a ton of sugar (only 1 tsp maple syrup along with the fruit) plus you’ll get a nice little dose of protein and omega-3’s from the walnuts and almond butter. Eat them for breakfast, or split it with someone and add a scoop of vanilla bean coconut milk ice cream for dessert!
This sweet & nutty smoothie is full of antioxidants and fiber.
