Blueberry Good Morning Bars

Breakfast bars are great for those busy mornings when you’re on the go! These blueberry breakfast bars are the perfect snack to boost your energy first thing in the morning, or as a sweet addition to your breakfast. I love how easy they are to make with my Magic Bullet. The fresh blueberries add so much flavor! I also added shredded coconut and walnuts to give them more of a crunchy texture. These blueberry bars are soft and chewy, so […]

Compost cookies

Have you ever completed the pantry challenge? Two weeks ago, I filled a box with everything in my pantry that I hadn’t used in more than a year. It was a big box. Amid the scones and bloody mary mix, I found ancient graham crackers and dried milk powder, as well as a bunch of old snack food. These compost cookies (made famous by Momofuku milk bar in New York) do a great job of using up whatever’s in your pantry […]

Piña Colada Smoothie

Whenever I make this smoothie, I always get that piña colada song stuck in my head: if you like piña coladas, and getting caught in the rain… It gives me that tropical, vacation-y feeling. All you need to make it is pineapple juice, coconut milk, and frozen pineapple chunks. Don’t you think coconut and pineapple go so well together? I like to make fresh squeezed pineapple juice (piña colada means “strained pineapple,” after all), but I won’t tell if you use juice […]

Fudgy Cardamom Squares

These fudgy squares use ground-up almonds to mimic the texture and taste of the khoa (milk solids) in the common milk burfis. It may be hard to believe that it works, but it does! Try it.

Fudgy Cardamom Squares Ingredients 1/2 cup almond milk 2 teaspoons vegan butter or safflower oil 1/2 cup ground sugar 1/8 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder 1 cup ground raw or blanched almonds or fine […]

Lemon Bars

This lemon bar recipe comes from my Mom’s best dessert recipe collection. I used to love baking these with her growing up, which we did often because they would never last more than one day in our house. Every bite is rich with that freshly squeezed lemon flavor. The filling is really easy to make in the Magic Bullet, and only takes a few minutes to prepare. After cooling, they are dusted with confectioners’ sugar to add a little more […]

Hot Cocoa Mix

In these times of troubling cocoa shortages, it’s important to have your own hot cocoa recipe so that you can stockpile a healthy reserve. Who knows what sort of chemically-enhanced chocolate drinks we’ll be consuming in the near future??? Also, making your own hot cocoa is a blast. Hot Cocoa Mix Ingredients 1/4 cup of sugar 1/4 cup of cocoa powder 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch 1 chocolate bar (I’m a milk chocolate fan and went for the classic Hershey’s bar. Feel […]

Grandma’s Banana Bread

This banana bread recipe was my grandma’s. My mom still has a copy of the recipe that my grandma wrote on a card for her. It’s a small card, with cramped writing, spotted with years of batter droplets. It’s the best. And I love it. And it smells like home and family and bananas and bread and sweet and yummy.. and so I’m telling you about it. Turns out, you can make it in the Bullet with the blender attachment. […]

Peanut Butter Banana Trifle

This peanut butter banana trifle dessert is so fast and easy to make, and incredibly delicious! You can make it in one large trifle dish or in four miniature trifle dishes. All you need to make these tasty little trifles is a box of instant vanilla pudding, milk, peanut butter sandwich cookies, peanuts and bananas. The Magic Bullet will whip up the pudding in no time and then you just need to add everything to the trifle bowls. No need […]

Mini Chocolate Cheesecakes

One of my good friends has a “specialty dessert,” and I get so excited every time she makes them: mini cheesecakes! I have always wanted to try making them in a chocolate version and finally created a delicious mini chocolate cheesecake recipe using my Magic Bullet. The ganache layer on top is optional, especially if chocolate cheesecake is already rich enough for you, but I love including it when I make these. I can’t get enough chocolate! Leave them plain, or […]
