Mango Coconut Vanilla Milkshake (vegan)

Mango Coconut Vanilla Milkshake (vegan)

Here in the Northeast it has been a wonderful summer.  We have had some heat waves, some cooler streaks, and lots of sunshine. For the first time in as long as I can remember, I am spending most of my days in an office that does not have air conditioning.  I know just the idea

Cherry Berry Smoothie (Vegan)

Cherry Berry Smoothie (Vegan)

This weekend officially marked the start of summer.  I better get over to the farm to get a new tank of propane because my grill is looking ready to be BFFs again. The berries and cherries I am getting right now are like beautiful music to my taste buds.  And I am really loving just

Vegan Blueberry Coconut Smoothie

Vegan Blueberry Coconut Smoothie

I drink a lot of smoothies.  Generally one a day.  Occasionally two.  I found a brand of frozen fruit that I like, and since I get fresh produce delivered weekly, I don’t go to the food store regularly these days.  So the times I do get to the store I end up going to the

Tummy Tonic

Tummy Tonic

As humans, we all have tummy troubles from time to time.  (All you non humans would enjoy this recipe too, but just for yummy reasons, because clearly you are an alien.. I mean, do you even have a stomach?) There are a few foods that can really help when you are having digestive upset: bananas,

Green Orange Juice

Green Orange Juice

I have been getting the most beautiful citrus fruit lately.  And sometimes I love cutting it up and eating it like a salad (grapefruit segments with maple syrup and walnuts is pretty much the best thing that ever happened to grapefruit for breakfast).  And other times I am less motivated and I just want yummy

Strawberry Vegan Green Smoothie

Strawberry Vegan Green Smoothie

A while back the weirdest thing ever happened to me.  I started to love exercise.  I went from the wake-up-as-late-as-I-can-get-away-with (I was serious about getting every last minute of sleep) to getting up early to work out.  Which is seriously something I never ever thought I would do. (Ok, I am still serious about my sleep,

Vegan Hot Chocolate Mix

Vegan Hot Chocolate Mix

What I love maybe the most about this time of the year is snuggling up with hot beverages.  Hot tea, the occasional cup of coffee, and hot chocolate.  Oh hot chocolate.  Is there a more perfect drink? And I have been all about Christmas movies (it feels like my TV stays on ABC Family the

Vegan Eggnog

Vegan Eggnog

Ok, you caught me.  This is not the first vegan eggnog recipe I have posted.  I am clearly a sucker for the nog.  And I thought I would make a version minus the sneaky fruit.  Because, as much as I love sneaking fruit in, I know sometimes you just want to drink some eggnog! I

Homemade Pumpkin Creamer (vegan)

Homemade Pumpkin Creamer (vegan)

At the first sign of fall I am all over my two favorite things: pumpkin anything/everything, and tea.  A cup of hot tea on a crisp morning is one of those things that makes me genuinely smile, and feel like I can take on anything that day. I am actually not really a morning person.

Immunity Boost Smoothie

Immunity Boost Smoothie

With fall in the air and kids going back to school, it’s starting to be the season for the sniffles.  And while being about being able to call out from work is one of life’s many pleasures, I prefer to save it for the times when I feel like playing hooky (which is good for

Vegan Peaches and Cream Smoothie

Vegan Peaches and Cream Smoothie

I am jealous of Georgia.  First of all, their weather is amazing.  Then they also have incredible farmers markets that sell anything and everything your heart can desire.  The restaurants are ridiculously good, and they also have a claim to Alton Brown, who I am kind of in love with.  But to top it all

Cherry Almond Smoothie (Vegan)

Remember that time I ate deep fried oreos? Yeah, that totally happened last weekend.  I was at a friends wedding, and they had deep fried oreos… next to a chocolate fountain.  I think saying the wedding was amazing is unnecessary.  Deep fried oreos and chocolate fountains do all the talking.  But also, after the whole
