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

Vegan Carrot Cake Salad

Vegan Carrot Cake Salad

I think I can finally convince even non believers that salad for breakfast is where it’s at. I am seriously hooked on this salad.  I am on kind of a raisin kick right now (it took me a while to get over the inner child that cringed at raisin things, even though I do still

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,

I am pretty excited Valentine’s Day is next week.  I will take any excuse to eat chocolate.

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 Fruit Cake

Sometimes I sneak off to my happy place.  Last week was one of those times. I swear I don’t go that often, and since I was just there in October it probably seems like I go a lot.  I was just the luckiest this year because hubby had a conference a couple weeks before our

Crispy and Chewy Coconut Cookies

Thanksgiving is wonderful of course, I mean a holiday that is mostly revolving around food is something I can get behind.  But Christmas?  Its all about the cookies.  And really, where there are cookies there are smiles, so how can other holidays compete? So when Kelly at The Pretty Bee told me about the 12

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

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten Free, Vegan Option)

Halloween is over, but I am not over the whole pumpkin thing yet.   Can we make a pact to eat as much pumpkin related foods until Thanksgiving?  By that time I assume we will be so sick of it that we can give them up cold turkey until next year. Speaking of Halloween, I
