Banana Hot Cocoa

My favorite drink on a cool night is hot cocoa. The other day I had the idea of blending a banana with cocoa powder, milk and cinnamon, and warming it up in a pot. I call it, banana hot cocoa! It came out delicious. I love how the banana adds sweetness naturally to this hot cocoa drink. No extra sugar is needed. It also thickens it up, making it nice and creamy. Serve this drink hot right from the pot, […]

You can even add pistachio nuts for a crunchy texture, or add then on top! Go ahead and try your new favorite green smoothie. Pistachio Banana Smoothie […]

Fit Hubby Fudge

You may have heard of a dessert called “chubby hubby” before, a flavor created by Ben and Jerry’s with peanut butter, pretzel and fudge. I decided to create a “fit hubby” version using peanut butter, pretzels, chocolate whey protein powder and a drizzle of chocolate on the top. This is a great energy-boosting snack after a workout to give your body the protein it needs to build muscle, and it tastes like a dessert! Fit Hubby Fudge Recipe Ingredients 3/4 […]

Raspberry Banana Smoothie Bowl

The other day I got into a debate with my friend on what is better: smoothies or smoothie bowls. I think smoothie bowls win, hands down. They are just so much more versatile in terms of toppings and it is way more fun eating it with a spoon when thickened with frozen banana. The texture becomes almost like ice cream! In this smoothie bowl, I add frozen banana to frozen raspberries and coconut milk for a dairy-free alternative to milk […]

Herbed Goat Cheese Tart

This herbed goat cheese tart is an easy, flavorful vegetarian dish that uses thin phyllo sheets as the crust. The filling is made with soft, mild goat cheese and cottage cheese, and it is topped with sautéed shallots and cherry tomatoes before baking in the oven. The secret to this main dish is the fresh herbs. You can substitute dry, but nothing compares to using fresh herbs! Once you take the tart out of the oven, sprinkle chopped fresh herbs […]

Whipped Coconut Cream

My youngest is the pickiest eater, so I have the hardest time giving her foods that not only fill her up, but also give her the nutrition she needs. She tends to lean towards the sweeter foods, so this coconut whipped cream sounded like the perfect addition to her diet! She loves to dip salty pretzels in it, and I love to dip berries in it! Also it’s made with  healthy fats and natural sugars! But the best part is […]

Cookie Dough Shake

Cookie dough ice cream is my favorite ice cream flavor. As a kid, I would always save the cookie dough until the end and enjoy it in one big glob of cookie dough! For this cookie dough milkshake, I used vanilla ice cream, milk and made my own eggless cookie dough to blend in. For all of you cookie dough lovers, this milkshake tastes like heaven. After it is blended up, the cookie dough is no longer chunky since it […]
