Chai Smoothie Bowl

 There’s something about Chai Tea that is wonderful. The aromas, the taste, the creaminess. I figured why not try it out in a smoothie bowl and I was very happy with it. I used a vegan vanilla nutritional shake powder in it and it added a lot of texture and […]

Vegan Crepes

 I am craving crepes today. It is cloudy and quite chilly for a June day. These are vegan but not gluten-free. I will keep experimenting to make one that is also gluten-free. ┬áThese are so good; I did not even notice that they were egg-free! The cinnamon and nutmeg make […]

Chocolate Hummus

 I am looking for ways to incorporate more pulses into my diet. Pulses are dried peas, edible beans, lentils and chickpeas. Since I am not a fan of these at all, I have to be creative in how I eat them. So I thought, why not make it into a […]

Mango Pineapple Smoothie Bowl

 A tropical tasting smoothie that makes me think of being on vacation on a warm beach. Top with whatever fruit, nuts or toppings that would go with it. I chose strawberries and coconut to go with the tropical theme. All who have to do is to blend everything together and […]

Watermelon Cherry Smoothie Bowl

 This smoothie bowl is very simple and such a beautiful color! I associate smoothies with warmer weather and this one definitely cools you down! Put all the ingredients in the blender and that’s pretty much it. Print Watermelon Cherry Smoothie Bowl A refreshing summer smoothie Course Smoothies Prep Time 5 […]

Veggie Bowl with Avocado Dressing

 This veggie bowl is great for warm summer evenings. I chose to have all my veggies raw except for the corn, but grilling them would be good too! Combine all the ingredients for the dressing. You can add more liquid if you want to make it thinner. I made mine […]

Mint Chia Pudding with Chocolate Cashew Cream

 Mint Chocolate is one of the best dessert combinations that I know of! I don’t know of anyone who doesn’t like this combination. After you mix the liquid ingredients for the pudding, add either spirulina or green food powders. Vegetable based colorings are available in so many stores now! At […]

Mint Grapefruit Salad

 Simple salads are a summertime staple for me. It took a bit of time for me to figure out what herbs go with grapefruit. I tried three different ones (dill, basil and mint), but mint was the winner. I find it cuts the acidity that accompanies grapefruit. As I was […]

Zucchini Bowl with Spicy Avocado Sauce

 There’s something about the combination of avocado, basil and jalapenos that’s so satisfying. This would be good on gluten-free pasta too, but I chose to have it on zucchini. Fresh vegetables are always so appetizing and appealing, don’t you think? Spiralize the zucchini next. Blend the ingredients for the sauce […]
