    Chocolate Milkshake Smoothie Bowls

    Do you ever wake up craving a milkshake for breakfast? I do. ALL. THE. TIME. You know what’s amazing about plant-based cuisine? You can blend up a healthy chocolate milkshake using fruits, seeds, and cocoa powder. It all comes together in five minutes. From there, you can choose to sip it with a straw or gussy it up with fancy garnishes and enjoy it as a smoothie- errr, milkshake- bowl. This chocolate milkshake is packed with good-for-you ingredients like banana, avocado, raw cacao powder, dates, a drizzle of raw honey for immunity-boosting superpowers, and three different seeds: flax, hemp, and tahini.

    Coziest Cranberry Swirl Loaf

    As promised, here is my cranberry swirl loaf recipe! This quick bread is perfect as a holiday breakfast, snack, or dessert. It comes together in under 30 minutes, including the cranberry cooking time. The maple syrup flavour really shines through here, as does the unique nuttiness of the spelt flour.

Banana bread has its time and place, to be sure, but…

Born out of my love…

    Chocolate Cake Batter Smoothie

    Hey, it’s almost Friday! Let’s celebrate the end of the week in style, shall we? It appears as though I am on both a smoothie kick and a chocolate kick, and I cannot be stopped. Can you blame me? With summer in full swing and the humidity showing no signs of abating in these parts, it was only a matter of time before I combined the two.

    Chocolate Banana Protein Pancakes

    Hello and welcome to my blog!! I have been reading different food/health/wellness blogs for years now and figured that I’d give it a try myself. It’s going to be a work in progress for the next several months but I don’t think there is ever a moment where one is 100 percent ready to try something new. I’m jumping in and learning as I go. Any feedback is welcome! Today’s recipe is one that, if you are anything like me, you will find yourself making over and over again! I wanted my first recipe to be a memorable one, and I think that these fit the bill quite well. Chocolate…
