We’re taking chia pudding to the next level with this recipe. Gone are the days of just adding vanilla, cinnamon and almond milk, enter an exciting, more nutrient-dense bowl of superfoods.
I love oatmeal. I love how much it fills me up, keeps me energized, and tastes good with just about any topping I can think of — berries, banana, almond butter, nuts, granola, etc. However, when the temperatures start getting warmer, my hair starts frizzing more, and one step on into the NYC subway platform has me sweating, I can’t say I’m craving something hot for breakfast. That’s why smoothies become my go to, especially this one when I want my oats, but don’t want to be cooking over a warm stove! Enjoy this fiber filled smoothie.
This sweet and savory treat can tackle any chocolate craving, not to mention provide that ooey, gooey brownie texture we all know, love and crave! But the real kicker is, it actually contains real whole food ingredients! This treat isn’t only appropriate at dessert, it is an energy filled treat that travels with you (or your kids!) on the run, at work or anytime you need of a fuel-filling source. Get the recipe!
Chocolate and hazelnut is a classic combo because it offers the perfect balance of salty, sweet and decadent. That familiar and delicious flavor inspired my smoothie for this week…a Choco-Hazelnut Smoothie! It’s naturally high in fiber with all the wonderful benefits of raw cacao powder. Get the recipe.
When I was growing up, almost every Sunday morning my mom would pop cinnamon buns in the oven. As soon as they started to warm up, the smell would drift up to my bedroom and I would jump out of bed, run down the stairs and wait for the buns to finish cooking (see I’ve always had a sweet tooth!). So naturally, since I began my love for raw desserts about three years ago, I have been on the hunt for the perfect raw cinnamon roll. And I came pretty close to finding it!
I have been experimenting with the Breville Juice Fountain Crush Slow Juicer and have had some fun making homemade nut milks! A couple weeks ago, I shared my recipe for Homemade Almond Milk, but this week I took it up a notch and experimented with hazelnuts. I was overly delighted with the results. Not only did I have delicious nut milk in my fridge for the week to enjoy and use in smoothies, but I also had the leftover pulp from the hazelnuts that I made into a raw dessert (stay tuned for that recipe!).
