Blended Breakfast Parfait

Who doesn’t love a parfait? Yogurt, fruit, granola and some natural sweetener? Sign me up! In most parfaits, those ingredients remain separated. Here, though, we’re using the Magic Bullet to blend them together, creating a new breakfast treat that’s delicious through-and-through. It’s not often that healthy and tasty overlap so emphatically! Blended Breakfast Parfait Ingredients 3/4 cup yogurt 1/3 to 1/2 cup mixed berries 1/4 cup granola 1 tsp. honey or agave Instructions Combine all ingredients in Magic Bullet and […]

Blueberry Almond Yogurt

One of the Magic Bullet’s best qualities is that it allows you to be in control of what you’re eating. Store-bought yogurt is limiting, and doesn’t always offer flavor varieties that are specific to your unique taste. This recipe combines plain yogurt with blueberries, a hint of maple syrup and a handful of almonds for a hearty and texture-filled breakfast yogurt that beats out anything you’ll find in the local grocery aisle. Blueberry Almond Yogurt Recipe Ingredients 1 cup plain or […]

Breakfast Popsicles

Have you ever thought about eating popsicles for breakfast? I attended a brunch once and, yes, they were in fact serving breakfast popsicles! I thought this was a really cool idea and decided to make them at home for quick grab-and-go breakfast. All you need is yogurt (plain or vanilla), your favorite fruit jam, and your favorite granola. Most yogurts are too thick alone, so you’ll need to use your Magic Bullet to blend in a little milk. You can also […]

Chocolate Banana Frozen Yogurt

Chocolate and banana go so well together, it’s sort of bizarre that banana peels aren’t made of chocolate. Wouldn’t that be beautiful?! Well, luckily for us all, with just 3 ingredients and your trusty Magic Bullet, you can make this delicious chocolate banana dessert in no time. It’s a simple frozen yogurt that uses only a frozen banana, a little yogurt, and a touch of cocoa powder, and it’s really, really tasty. It sounds too good to be true, but it is! All natural […]

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 […]

Creamy Zucchini Herb Dressing

When I went away to college, one of the first things I learned to make from scratch was salad dressing. I found that is was so easy to make and cheaper than buying it at the grocery store. They always sell salad dressings in large bottles, which go bad before I can use them all up. If I wanted to have different salads during the week, that would mean I needed to buy a few different large bottles of dressing. […]

Berry Lime Coconut Popsicles

Summer has been a strange thing here in NYC lately. But I guess weather everywhere is feeling a little like a teenager–non-committal, moody, unpredictable. So for those incredibly humid and hot days, I’ve made some fruit popsicles out of fruit that I had on hand before they could go bad because of said indecisive weather conditions. I used this recipe from Desserts for Breakfast‘s blog(Aptly named, I might say since I did indeed have one for breakfast this weekend.) Berry […]

Tandoori Yogurt Marinade

I eat a lot of chicken. Chicken breast. Chicken thighs. Chicken drumsticks. Chicken chicken chicken. Because it’s healthy and most of the time it’s affordable. But it can feel a little like Bubba from Forrest Gump and here is where Dinner: A Love Story‘s variations of the yogurt marinade will save you from the boredom of blandly seasoned chicken breast. Ingredients 2 cups plain yogurt 1/2 large onion 1/3 cup olive oil salt & freshly ground pepper 1 cup cilantro […]

Avocado Lime Yogurt Sauce

As the weather warms up, it’s time for finger foods that are easy to make and even easier to share. Wait – Did you hear that? Did someone say tacos? That’s right, tacos! And tacos are best when you have a whole array of toppings for people can choose from. I found this Avocado Lime Cream Sauce at Edible Perspective. She put this on a burger, but I really enjoyed it on my taco as an alternative to guacamole/sour cream! […]

Watermelon Smoothie

We drink a lot of smoothies around here. But they’re usually all the same. That’s what happens when you buy frozen fruit at costco. You end up drinking the same dang thing every day. So sometimes, we want to change it up. Get a little crazy. Throw a little curveball. Freeze some watermelon and smooth it up.   It’s a good idea to change things up every now and again. Watermelon Smoothie Ingredients Frozen watermelon chunks Orange juice Plain Greek […]
