Creamy & Sweet Coconut Almond Milk (No Sugar Added)

A few months ago, my mind was blown when I tried a new kind of “almond milk”. The geniuses over at one of my favorite juice bars in New York, Juice Press, decided to combine almonds with coconut water, instead of plain water. It is heavenly! It is so simple, so sweet with no added sweeteners (not even dates or pure maple syrup), and a perfect treat. It racks up at $9 for a 10 oz. bottle, and while the taste and the quality help me justify that it’s worth it, it’s always less expensive if you can figure out how to make it on your own, and I came pretty darn close. Enjoy this recipe!

Kiwi Koolada Smoothie

This is a light sour and refreshing simple smoothie. Kiwi fruit naturally contains enzymes which can improve protein digestion and it also has a high anti-oxidant content. Kiwi fruit is also very high in vitamins C, K, E and folate! Enjoy!

Raw Blueberry Applesauce

With spring in bloom and summer right around the corner, our food cravings begin to turn away from hot meals and towards our favorite warm weather dishes.  Here is a quick and easy spring-time snack for the whole family!

Smart Sweet: Mixed Berry & Banana Chia Pudding

Chia seeds are 38% fibre, 16% protein and 47% fat while 17% being omega 3 fatty acids. They are also an excellent source of calcium. So enjoy these beauties any time of day as a breakfast or a little something sweet at the end of a long day.

Berry Oats & Goji Spring Smoothie

This refreshing spring smoothie is light, tasty, and packed with nutrients. The base of fresh or frozen berries provides a good source of vitamin C and antioxidants, while the flax and hemp add healthy protein, healthy fat, and fiber. Antioxidant-rich goji berries are also a highlight of this smoothie and adds a nice crunch as the garnish. This smoothie makes for a great breakfast, or post-workout recovery drink as it provides extra protein and carbohydrates for muscle repair. For added flavor try garnishing with cinnamon!

Nutty Bunny Smoothie

With a little inspiration from a new juice bar that just opened, I created my own concoction of carrot and ginger juice blended with almond milk and a banana and more healthy ingredients that make this a new favorite drink. It sounds a little nutty, but it’s a must-try! Get the recipe.

Smart Sweet: Vegan Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Vegan ice cream is music to my ears, and it’s super easy, delicious and a great chocolate fix! This is my favourite dairy free chocolate recipe. I used organic brown rice malt syrup in this recipe because rice syrup has a lower sugar content than honey or maple syrup so it doesn’t make it overly sweet and has a very mild flavour but maple syrup and honey will also work nicely. If you miss chocolate ice cream at all you won’t miss it anymore.

Blueberry & Goji Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls (also sometimes called Acai bowls) are becoming increasingly more popular, so I decided to give it a try, and was quite pleasantly surprised! These smoothie bowls seems to be less filling than a traditional smoothie and can be a great way to pack a lot of nutrients into a small serving. What’s also great about these smoothie
bowls is the variety they allow, because you can add virtually anything to them. Find out what I added to mine!

A Tropical Twist on Your Green Smoothie

For many of us, the famous “green smoothie” can be intimidating and more hopeful than a lifestyle reality. One of the best and easiest ways to incorporate a green smoothie into your daily protocol is to make it taste great. I know that seems simple but in order to do it daily and to even get your kids to enjoy it, it is going to need to be delicious and appealing.

Banana Nut Pumpkin Oatmeal

Oatmeal makes for a perfect and cozy breakfast on a cool fall or winter morning. This twist on classic oatmeal not only makes it really tasty, but also nutritious. The added almond butter brings healthy fat and some protein to the recipe, while the banana brings potassium, and the pumpkin offers fiber. And to finish off the recipe– a dash of pumpkin pie spice makes it even tastier! Get the complete recipe.
