Peach Bliss Balls

 I’m on a bit of a peach kick lately. It’s true that the only peaches I can get at the moment are frozen, but they still have tons of flavor. Make sure that you make these often, because if you have to share, they will be gone fast. I used […]

Chickpea Salad

 I love having salad sandwiches, especially as the weather is starting to turn warm, don’t you? Chickpeas make such a wonderful base for these kinds of salads because they are filling, cheap and taste delicious. This salad reminds me of summer. This salad is very easy to make and it […]

Raw Pumpkin Spice Cashew Cake

 Oh, how I love pumpkin spice and raw cakes, so it made sense to put the two together. The raw gingerbread base is absolutely amazing and I will be making raw cookies or bliss balls from it. The creaminess of the pumkin goes amazingly with crust! Start by pulsing the […]

Pecan Apple Pie Overnight Oats

 Yes, I’m in love with overnight oats! I wanted to come up with one that has barely any added sweetener though. Since apples are naturally sweet, it makes a perfect addition to it and the pecans give it a good crunch. In a saucepan combine water, apple, cinnamon and nutmeg. […]

Vegan Pecan Pie Apple Squares

Raw Raspberry Lemonade Cake

 When I think of summer, I think of drinking raspberry lemonade. As a kid, and as an adult, I have always enjoyed drinking raspberry lemonade so why not make it into a raw cake? This cake is light and refreshing! I love the balance it has of slightly tart from […]

Raw Blueberry Cashew Cheesecake

 Blueberries are a summertime staple in my house. They are so full of flavor and are a perfect addition to any dessert. This raw cashew cheesecake is creamy and looks amazing too. It was hard to wait for it to freeze to eat it!   The best way to get […]

Coconut Cashew Cheesecake

 I’ve been wanting to attempt a cashew cheesecake for awhile now but haven’t for some crazy reason! The crust is so simple and full of taste! Spread the filling over top and then freeze. I personally like my cheesecake smooth in texture so I don’t add coconut to the mixture, […]

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 […]
