Easy Low-Fat Breakfast Biscuits

Do you ever wake up the morning with nothing to eat? Here’s a fantastic, easy breakfast that is low in fat and high in delicious: biscuits whipped up from pantry items in your Magic Bullet. I actually made this totally on a whim because I was hungry – and it turned out great. The biscuits were crunchy on the outside, and moist and flaky on the inside. This was great with an egg stuffed in the middle, though next time I’ll […]

Mango Lime Sorbet

It’s so easy to get caught up in the many delicious treats that surround us, but don’t forget that fruits can make the best desserts! Instead of going for ice cream, why not whip up a quick batch of this mango lime sorbet? Simply add frozen mango chunks, fresh-squeezed lime juice, plain Greek yogurt and a pinch of sugar to your Magic Bullet blender, and you have a healthy, refreshing dessert in almost no time! This mango lime sorbet is […]

Banana Raisin Cashew Butter

I’m a huge fan of anything that goes on bread. Sometimes, though, I’m in the mood for a more unique flavor on my bagel; one can only cycle through peanut butter, cream cheese or jelly so many times. This banana cashew butter is sweet, refreshing and healthy. Luckily, it’s also a cinch to throw together! I’ve added raisins as a sweetener, too, for that little extra oomph! Banana Raisin Cashew Butter Ingredients 3/4 cup cashews 1 banana 1/3 cup raisins 1 […]

Low-Fat Smoked Salmon “Cream Cheese”

I know, I know. “Low-fat.” Very 1990s. But. But. What if I were to offer you a simple way to lighten up one of life’s great pleasures? Would that be so wrong? Not diet food, exactly, but here’s a lighter version of ye olde bagel with smoked salmon and cream cheese. Forgive me: Of course, the Magic Bullet takes well to making spreads of all kinds, and my colleague Kristianne has a great recipe for herbed salmon spread. Here I […]

Chocolate Banana Muffins

I am a sucker for sweets in the mornings. Muffins in particular are something I could never turn down if offered! I remember the first time I discovered how many calories were in one single muffin that I bought from a grocery store – I was completely shocked! Now, when I make them at home I try to cut down on the sugar and butter. Whenever I bake anything with bananas, I seem to always want to use walnuts in […]

Chocolate Cake for One

Admit it. We’ve all had those days where we just want to come home, put on some sweats and indulge in a piece of chocolate cake. The problem is, who actually bakes a whole chocolate cake for just him/herself? If you have done that before, I must say, I am impressed!! Instead of baking a whole cake for myself, I turn to this Chocolate Cake for One recipe. All you need is your handy Magic Bullet and a ramekin (or […]

Low-Fat Strawberry Banana Muffins

Strawberries and bananas might possibly be the best flavor combination in the world (Okay, fine, maybe a close second to chocolate and peanut butter!) These strawberry banana muffins are super moist and low-fat. You heard me correctly: there is absolutely NO BUTTER or OIL in these muffins. Each bite is packed with juicy strawberries and banana flavor. Whole wheat flour is added in place of some of the all-purpose flour adding more fiber, but you can’t taste it at all. […]
