Coffee Banana Soft Serve (vegan)

Coffee Banana Soft Serve (vegan)

One of my favorite little tricks to healthy sweets is banana soft serve.  It turns out that if you put a frozen banana into the food processor, out comes banana soft serve.  No magic wand needed! (Though they never hurt, right?) Hubby sometimes catches me standing in the kitchen with my nose in the can

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

Avocado Mayo (Vegan Mayo!)

Avocados are, in my opinion, one of the most perfect foods ever.  And I have been making this mayo alternative with them for years, I am pretty obsessed with it. Actually, once I decided to actually write down and share the recipe, I did a side by side comparison of this to “regular” mayo.  It

Vegan Beef and Broccoli

No matter where you go, or who you talk to, it is likely you have something in common: super cold weather.  Like, some companies in Minnesota closed last week because it was dangerous how cold it was.  On a thermometer, that would be a reading of nutso cold.

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
