    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. Flax is an excellent plant source of omega-3 fatty…

    Chocolate Chunk Cashew Butter Blondies (Vegan, GF)

    Follow my blog with Bloglovin Oh hi, friends! I’m so excited to share my favourite blondie recipe with you just in time for the holidays! This dessert only takes 20 minutes to whip up and is so intensely craveable, you’ll be making it all year round! What the heck is a blondie, you may ask? Think brownie, minus the chocolate batter. I like to think of them as blonde brownies. What the batter lacks in cocoa, it makes up for in the chocolate chunks that adorn every square inch of this dessert! They’re sweet (but not tooth-achingly so), rich (but not over the top), and satisfying. Sweetened with coconut sugarand…

    Double Chocolate Protein Bars

    Why buy protein bars when it takes ten minutes to whip up a batch in your own kitchen? These protein bars are packed with protein (obviously), healthy fat, complex carbs, and are lightly sweetened with pure maple syrup! The icing on the cake, so to speak, is the raw chocolate glaze. Made with just four ingredients (cacao butter, raw cacao, maple syrup, and almond milk), it propels these protein bars into “I can’t ever go back to store-bought” territory.Β  Well, we made it to Friday. If you have a Monday to Friday job, happy weekend! If, like me, you still find yourself working retail on weekends, I feel ya! Hopefully…

    Peanut Butter Cup Muffins

    Hi, friends! I feel as though it’s been a minute since I’ve posted here. When I started this blog, I thought that I would have time to post every. single. day. I have since been humbled by the amount of time and energy that goes into creating, testing, and photographing recipes while also working a full time job and marathon training! I’m not complaining or making excuses, just saying that I have a newfound appreciation for all those who juggle many life things at once!

    Fresh Town Smoothie with Hidden Greens + Plastic-Free July

    This smoothie will knock your socks off and wake you right up on a hot summer morning! Fresh mint and kale are hidden beneath a layer of chocolate, banana, and Medjool dates, creating a refreshing and sweet smoothie packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants!   Some things were made for each other. Peanut butter and jam. Cam and Mitch. (Veggie) Burgers and (sweet potato) fries. Apple and cheese. A kiss and a squeeze. To that list, I will happily add chocolate and mint. Ever since I was a young one and discovered the magic that is the Girl Guides chocolate mint cookies, I have been hooked. However, my preference now…

    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…
