Balsamic Strawberry Sorbet

Strawberry sorbet screams summertime, but you can actually enjoy this healthy dessert all year long! All you need are frozen strawberries and your handy Magic Bullet to make it all happen. Best of all, you don’t even need an ice cream maker! By pulsing slightly defrosted frozen strawberries in your Magic Bullet, you get the same slushy sorbet texture you would get if you used  an ice cream maker, and the results are so much faster!  The splash of balsamic vinegar […]

Strawberry Mint Watermelon Salad

The summer can be brutal, and the majority of the time, I just want to enjoy a nice, refreshing piece of fruit. Almost daily, my kids and I venture to the pool with packed lunches and sunscreen. The last thing I want to eat is a sandwich, so I created this salad as my g0-to. 😉 It’s light, refreshing, but still totally filling. And, you won’t feel full or bloated in your bathing suit! We all know how important that it! […]

Peanut Butter Mousse

Calling all peanut butter lovers! You are going to swoon over this fluffy peanut butter mousse. Especially because it’s actually healthy. No heavy whipping cream is used in this recipe; instead it uses silken tofu, an unexpected, but absolutely delicious replacement for fattening and sweetened cream! The tofu gives it a fluffy texture, while the peanut butter and confectioners’ sugar give it all the flavor. Watch out though, because this vegan dessert is highly addicting. Once you have a bite, […]

Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles

Multiple times I day I crave a little something sweet, and, now that summer’s here, popsicles are a must have! Sadly, store-bought popsicles are packed full of sugar, a no-no if you’ve got 3 rambunctious little ones running around — or even just one, for that matter! But, luckily, it’s so easy to make your own, and the prep is little to none. Before you know it, you will have a sweet, refreshing, cold treat perfect for satisfying those cravings! Strawberry Lemonade […]

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip

Dessert or appetizer dip? You decide! This chocolate chip cookie dough dip is secretly healthy, although nobody would know unless you told them the secret ingredient: white beans! Yes, the base of the dip is white kidney beans. But I promise — you don’t taste them at all once they’re blended with all of the other ingredients, which helps create a delicious and strong cookie dough flavor. My favorite thing to eat this cookie dough dip with is graham crackers, but I’m […]

Lusciously Sweet Chocolate Pudding

I’ve been making this pudding for years, it’s definitely one of my favorite recipes! The best thing about this pudding is the surprise ingredient, avocado! It not only adds a richness and creaminess to this pudding, but it also provides a great serving of healthy fats. And, surprisingly, it’s one of those recipes everyone loves. All 3 of my kids can be extremely picky with their food choices; sometimes, it seems like they would be just fine living off of ice […]

Cherry Pie Smoothie

It’s cherry season! This Memorial Day, I was so excited to see boxes of bright red cherries stacked up in the fruit section of my grocery store. I brought home a box and made this cherry pie smoothie, which includes fresh cherries, graham cracker crust, vanilla yogurt and milk. If you don’t have the energy to make a cherry pie (if you’ve made one before with fresh cherries, you know the amount of work involved in pitting the cherries one […]

Coconut Cream Strawberry Daiquiri

This recipe is natural, decadent and delicious. A strawberry daiquiri on its own is a force to be reckoned with: a fresh strawberry smoothie with alcohol? Yes please! Combine that with slightly whipped coconut cream, though, and you’re in a different league of tasty. With the Magic Bullet’s help, we’re not only blending the daiquiri, we’re creating powdered sugar and whipping our own coconut cream. Coconut Cream Strawberry Daiquiri Ingredients 1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced 1 1/2 cups ice […]

Dark Chocolate Pudding

On its own, pure chocolate can be a great treat, but, let’s be honest, it’s rarely a satisfying snack. It’s something you usually enjoy in moderation and usually not abundance (unless it’s been one of those weeks…) Chocolate pudding, on the other hand, satisfies your sweet tooth without putting you into that food coma that so many other indulgent desserts do. I used a dark chocolate bar as the foundation in this recipe. The brown sugar, vanilla and cocoa powder balance […]
