Summer Sunrise Smoothie

Have you ever had one of those days where you just can’t decide which smoothie you want to make? I was having one of those days recently, and couldn’t decide between a raspberry smoothie or mango smoothie. Both sounded so delicious! I finally decided to make a layered smoothie using both! This layered smoothie reminds me of a summer sunrise from the colors. You can layer it more than just once like I did to make it look even nicer. […]

Tzatziki Sauce

I am always looking for new ways to spice up my lunch and snack! Sometimes the same old hummus and veggies can get boring, which is why I love this Tzatziki sauce. I usually make a loaded veggie sandwich for lunch, and this sauce pairs perfectly with it. It also makes a great veggie dip for later on in the day when I’m needing something to snack on. The best thing is that it’s so easy to make, especially using […]

Fennel Salad with Tahini, Garlic, Paprika Dressing

Fennel is… strange. The middle of it looks like celery, the top of it (the “fronds”) look like Muppet hair, and the bottom like… fennel. And the whole thing tastes like licorice. And then there are fennel seeds, which also sort of taste like licorice, or maybe like anise? And where do the seeds come from? Anyway, put aside your fennel confusion, because it turns out that chopped fennel makes a tasty, crunchy, vaguely licorice-y salad, especially when dressed in […]

Artichoke Chive Cream Cheese

  What is your favorite cream cheese flavor? You can probably guess mine from the title of this recipe post! Indeed my favorite cream cheese flavor is artichoke and chive. It is so easy to make with my Magic Bullet that I rarely use plain cream cheese on my bagels anymore. All you need is plain cream cheese, fresh chives, and canned quartered artichoke hearts (the quartered kind makes them easier to chop up before tossing into your Magic Bullet). […]

Chicken with Honey Miso Butter

Yeah, that just sounds good, doesn’t it? This recipe features a bunch of delicious tasting notes: miso and umami are salty, honey is sweet, butter is rich, and when the combo hits the chicken and is roasted it creates a flavorful, crispy skin. The miso, though a bit of an exotic ingredient, really blends into the background here, creating a rich and beguiling flavor without being noticeably unusual. Your kids will love it (if you have kids). The Magic Bullet does […]

Mango Juice

How versatile is a mango? You can eat it on its own, in a taco, as a garnish, and with the help of the Magic Bullet and an incredibly simple recipe like this, as the headliner in a delicious and refreshing drink! This recipe combines mango with just a touch of lime to create the perfect drink for mango lovers. And it’s so easy to make! Mango Juice Recipe Ingredients 1/2 mango Splash of lime juice 1 cup water Instructions […]

Vegan Sweet Potato Shepard’s Pie

You won’t miss the meat in this vegan version of a Shepard’s Pie. Green lentils replace the meat and serve as a hearty filling when cooked with onion, garlic and peas. Sweet potatoes are blended in the Magic Bullet to creamy perfection, and then spread over the top of the pie to serve as a colorful crust. Bread crumbs and fresh rosemary add the final touches. Serve this hearty pie as a main dish along with a crusty piece of […]

Easy Salsa

I crave salsa every day because it’s such an awesome way to get a lot of flavor without consuming a ton of calories. I put fresh salsa on pretty much everything, so I love to have it on hand. But you can also make it at home with even better results! Add everything to the blender and it’s done in no time! Easy Salsa Recipe Ingredients ½ onion diced 1 small bunch cilantro, stems cut off Juice of 1 lime […]

Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

I recently discovered a delicious new side dish: stuffed portobello mushroom caps. Normally, you may think of stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer, but these portobello mushroom caps are so huge that they are probably better as a side! In fact, two people could probably share one. Goat cheese is blended with herbs and bread crumbs to form a creamy stuffing for these large mushrooms, which are then baked in the oven. I love the combination of goat cheese and walnuts, […]

Mango Shaved Ice

Simple desserts are the best desserts. They have distinguished and identifiable flavors, are lighter and healthier, and – best of all – are so easy to make! This recipe combines the natural sweetness of a mango mash with crushed ice and a touch of light coconut milk into a satisfying dessert that’ll knock the socks off any sweet tooth. Mango Shaved Ice Recipe Ingredients  1 mango 2 tbsp. coconut milk 1 cup ice Instructions Cut mango into smaller pieces and […]
