Honey Ricotta Cream

Have you ever tried ricotta cream before? I have only had it once in a dessert dish and loved it. In this healthier version, ricotta cheese is blended with plain yogurt, honey and a dash of cinnamon. Ricotta cream goes great with many desserts, but I also like to enjoy it with a cup of fresh fruit in the morning. Ricotta cheese is high in protein and low in calories, making it a healthy addition to breakfast. You won’t miss […]

Berry Ganache

Whether breakfast is the most important meal of the day or not is up for debate; I think we can all agree, however, that whatever it is, it ought to be delicious. This berry ganache is easy, sweet and healthy, and is a great addition to countless breakfast dishes. I made this with mini-waffles, but feel free to add it to cereal, oatmeal, pancakes, French toast or most anything else you can think. Berry Ganache Ingredients Equal parts: Strawberries Blueberries […]

Easy Blackberry Purée

Blackberries don’t get as much hype as other superfoods, but they contain a large amount of antioxidants and other healthy nutrients. I like to blend them up into a sweet sauce that can be used as a topping for a variety of classic breakfast dishes (pancakes, waffles, french toast, etc.). When I am in the mood for something lighter, I like to mix it into some plain yogurt for some additional health benefits. It also makes the perfect topping for […]

Crunchy, airy, super sweet meringues, that you can totally buy at the store, plus sweet and tart fruit and all […]

Breakfast Smoothie (Bowl)

So I’ve mentioned how much I like smoothies for breakfast. But generally, a smoothie alone just doesn’t quite cut it. Sure, it makes a nice dent, but it isn’t going to be enough to keep you full until lunch. This is where the genius of the bowl comes in. You’ve seen them. C’mon now, don’t be shy. You’ve walked past the hippe “health bar” where the guy with dreds flashes you a peace sign as he digs in to something purple […]

Green Berry Smoothie

Hey everyone! Erin here. Smoothies are, well, delicious. They also happen to be nutritious, or at least, they can be. Sure, Juice it up has the best white peach smoothie I’ve ever had in my life. But that’s because it’s made with ice cream. Duh. And even though we’re “grown ups” now and we technically can eat ice cream for breakfast, because y’know what, ma, I do what I want! ahem. We really have become our parents and “know better […]
