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 […]

Carrot Purée

A dip usually has word associations like, “cheesy,” “creamy,” or “heavy.” It’s rare that those associations ever wander into the territory of “healthy” or “light,” but it’s guaranteed that after you’ve tasted this carrot purée dip, you’ll have no idea why that is. This recipe uses the Magic Bullet to blend carrot and a little bit of spice to create a magical veggie dip you’ll be serving over and over again.   Carrot Purée Recipe Ingredients 2 cups carrots 1/2 […]

Vegan Coconut Chip Ice Cream

During the summer all my family wants are ice cold treats, especially ice cream! It’s easy to buy your favorite ice cream and stock up your freezer for when a craving calls! But, as a mom of 3 active girls, sometimes the summer days can be long and there is always an activity needed to be done. Making ice cream has become one of our favorite things to do together! We can use whatever ingredients we have on hand, and […]

White Bean Parsley Dip

White bean dip is a classic snack or appetizer. And by using the Magic Bullet, it’s also a simple and quick recipe to prepare! I’ve added some parsley to give the dip color and a deliciously unique flavor. If you’re feeling spicy, add some red pepper flakes to give it a little kick. You can also substitute parsley for cilantro. White Bean Parsley Dip Ingredients 1 can cannellini beans 1 Tbsp lemon juice 2 1/2 Tbsp olive oil 1/4 cup parsley […]

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 […]

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, […]

Broccoli Tots

Who doesn’t like a good tot? While potato-based tots are by far the most common, sometimes you’re in the mood for a little spin off. This recipe uses cooked broccoli, cheddar cheese and some spicy Sriracha to make a baked broccoli tot that’s not only healthy, but just as tasty as any tater tot out there! Broccoli Tots Ingredients 1 1/2-2 cups broccoli, chopped 1/4 cup scallions, chopped 1 Tbsp Sriracha, or your favorite hot sauce 1/2-1 tsp. garlic powder 1 egg […]

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 […]
