Frozen Coconut Pineapple
A great simple and healthy treat for breakfast, dessert or after workout snack! After you make these treats, store in a Ziploc or airtight container in the freezer for up to 2 months. Take one out whenever you have a craving for a guilt free treat!
Crockpot Oats with Pecans and Raisins
Is there really anything better than waking up to a warm hearty breakfast waiting for you in the morning? I didn’t think so!
Ginger Poached Pears
Pears and ginger love each other’s company in this beautiful poached treat! This can be served for an elegant dessert or brunch. If you would like to prepare in advance you can store the pears in an airtight container with the poaching liquid for about a week. Be sure to keep the liquid even after the pears are eaten – it is great to sweeten up your morning smoothies!
Oooh yes Apple Nachos! Crisp apple slices are layered with melted peanut butter, caramel and toasted nuts – what could be better! This is a great “healthy” treat to have while watching a big game without the guilt!
Apple Date Quinoa Porridge
This is a great alternative to the classic oatmeal – using superfood quinoa! It’s also super delicious and satisfying!
This is a really great spread for your morning bagel or some crackers for an afternoon snack! It’s a wonderful alternative to peanut butter! This recipe will make about 1 cup of Almond Butter. It will store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 1 month. Note that in order to get proper consistency on this butter you need a really powerful blender such as a Vitamix or a Ninja.
Avocado Banana Smoothie Bowl
A smoothie bowl is the new food fad right now and I can certainly understand why! It is a really thick smoothie that you need to eat with a spoon, and a bonus is you can top it with whatever you like! Kind of a cross between a smoothie and a bowl of ice cream! The avocado in this one makes it super creamy and delicious – really addictive!
Oh So Nutty Breakfast Bars
These are a really crunchy breakfast or snack bar with all the goodness of nuts! I found it was easiest to make these bars in a pie plate with removable bottom. These bars store for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container. Makes about 12 bars.
Cinnamon Raisin Overnight Oats
So ... Overnight Oats are all the rage right now and I can really see why! Such a refreshing and satisfying breakfast treat that’s ready for u when u wake up!
Blueberry Pie Chia Pudding
Another fun way to eat and enjoy this super food Chia Seeds! This is a great breakfast full of goodness to get your day started!
Chia Banana-Pumpkin Seed Pudding
Another fun way to eat and enjoy this super food Chia Seeds! I love to eat this as a breakfast to give me energy for the day! The bananas add a sweet creaminess while the pumpkin seeds add a little crunch to this comforting bowl. I find a mason jar is the best tool for this since you can prepare, shake and store all in one! I like to prepare this at night so that I can just grab it in the morning. You can also prepare several of them at once, they will last up to a week in the fridge in your mason jar.
This is an exquisite way to enjoy a pomegranate! The rosewater brings out the natural flowery taste of the pomegranate! It is even better the next day, so feel free to prepare it in advance and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
Cardamom Infused Poached Pears
This is such a simple, but elegant treat! It is especially nice for a dinner or brunch gathering as everyone can get their own poached pear. You can serve it on its own or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or even some yogurt if you are having it for breakfast! If you would like to save these pears for a few days, store them with the liquid in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. You can also save the poaching liquid to sweeten up yogurt, or some freshly made iced tea.
Chia Seed Pudding
This pudding is so cool to make! Chia seeds, the latest superfood, start out so tiny and literally drink up all the milk. The end product is something really similar in texture to a tapioca pudding. In this recipe, I chose to go easy on the sweetness to keep it really healthy. If you are serving it for dessert you may want to double up on the maple syrup, whereas if you are having it for breakfast or an after workout snack I would keep it as is and top with some fresh berries.
