Yes, you read that correctly. These are personal, mini-sized strawberry cheesecakes. And they’re also no-bake, which means, aside from being delicious, they’re also quick AND easy to make! They are portion-controlled, so each person can have their own dessert without feeling sick afterward from over-indulging. Glass desserts are fun to serve at parties and are especially easy to make ahead of time. Chill them in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve!

I have a confession to make. I love sweets for breakfast! I know I should be eating a bowl of fruit and some oatmeal in the mornings, but I can’t resist a pastry of muffin with my coffee to start my day. It’s such a bad habit, I know!

But, that being said, one of my favorite homemade muffin recipes is this double chocolate banana muffin recipe. My mom gave me these large muffin pans and I love making big muffins that I can pack in my bag before heading to work. I snack on it throughout the day – yum!

Pour that over the top of the cooled cheesecake (at least an hour in the refrigerator), then add a layer of sliced strawberries, or whole blueberries, to the top. Chill for a few hours, then serve.

Blueberry Sorbet

blueberry-ic-mb

You don’t need an ice cream maker to whip up a quick sorbet dessert. I used fresh blueberries, lemon juice and a pinch of sugar to blend up this blueberry sorbet dessert in my Magic Bullet. Blueberries are high in antioxidants, so this is not only a guilt-free dessert, but a healthy dessert, too! I used to love to eat a bowl of ice cream for dessert after my dinner almost every night, but over the last few years, I learned how to create healthier, but still satisfying, desserts using fruit. Top with a small dollop of whipped cream just before serving.

Cocoa Almond Spread

mb

One of my favorite things to eat for breakfast is a slice of bread with cocoa almond spread. Recently, I discovered how easy it is to make it from scratch at home with a Magic Bullet. You just need some roasted almonds, cocoa powder, sugar, honey, canola/coconut oil and your trusty Magic Bullet. The almonds take a while to break down into a creamy consistency (about 15 minutes of pulsing the blender and stirring for me!) But it is sooo worth it in the end! You can make it as sweet as you want by adding honey or granulated sugar. This delicious spread is full of healthy fats and protein and makes a great snack. Try it with bread or apple slices!

Aren’t you excited fall is here?! Yesterday I went to the grocery store and found PUMPKINS! When pumpkins hit the grocery stores, fall is official. Let the pumpkin treats begin! Here is my first one for you – Spiced Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins. These moist pumpkin muffins are spiced with cinnamon and ginger. I added chocolate chips and walnuts, but you can add other nuts or just enjoy them plain. They aren’t too sweet, so they go great with morning coffee or afternoon tea. Warning: these are highly addicting!!!

What is your fall bucket list? Here is mine:

1) Buy some cute new boots … and sweaters … and jeans … and scarves!

2) Experiment with baking and cooking new pumpkin recipes until I never want to hear the word “pumpkin” again

3) Pumpkin patch & carving (I haven’t done that since I was little!)

4) Go for a Fall hike

Mango Lassi Popsicles

makes 6-12 popsicles depending on your molds

Ingredients

  • 2 cups ripe mango, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • big pinch of ground cardamom
  • big pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Peel your mango, chop it up into large chunks and put all your ingredients into the Magic Bullet. I had to do this in two parts so that it wouldn’t be too full.
  2. Blend! Once everything is well mixed, you can pour it into your popsicle molds.
  3. I improvised with small plastic cups and poured the mixture in and let it freeze for about an hour and then stuck my popsicle sticks in the middle. Let them freeze solid around 4 hours or overnight.
  4. Then, when you have a craving for something fruity and delicious and slightly exotic, run your popsicle mold under some warm water, pop it out and thank yourself for trying out this recipe!
