PB&J Green Smoothie

So delicious and nourishing you’ll crave it everyday.

Best Ever PB&J Green Smoothie for 1

1 cup unsweetened almond milk ( or coconut, oat, regular cow)

2 big handfuls of spinach

1/2 cup frozen cherry berry blend*

1 Tbs maca powder (Optional)

1 scoop plant based vanilla protein powder

1 scoop unflavored collagen peptides

1 Tbs peanut butter (I like one that is just peanuts, oil, and salt)

I blend everything in the vitamix until smooth while Buffy, my Saint Bernard, enjoys the leftover peanut butter from the spoon.

*The cherry berry blend I use contains strawberries, blueberries, tart cherries, and sweet cherries. Feel free to use your favorite blend. Think of the kind of jam/jelly you like and go with that or switch it up.

What’s your favorite flavor of jam/jelly for a PB&J?

Chia Seed Pudding

Chia Seed Pudding

1 cup milk (I like almond or coconut milk)

1/4 cup chia seeds

1 tsp monkfruit or your favorite sweetener

dash of cinnamon

Fresh fruit, nut butter, seeds, coconut, honey, etc. for toppings

Mix together in an airtight container. I prefer to make this the night before and top it with fresh fruit, nut butter, and a drizzle of honey. Chia pudding will last in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. If it becomes too thick, just add a little more milk!

What are your go-to toppings for chia seed pudding?

Glowing Skin Green Smoothie

Full disclosure: If you’re looking for a sweet smoothie that hides that intense green flavor, this isn’t that smoothie. This smoothie tastes healthy. Its not easy being green, but its worth it.

I know I lost quite a few of you with that one, but it needed to be said.

Apple Crumble Muffin Cake

What an exciting day for Cleveland! The Indians have officially earned their place in the World Series!

Now, let’s take a look at the incredible crumble topping on this muffin cake. I adapted the recipe from one that I found from Cooking Light. I doubled the crumble topping, added vanilla, lemon zest and nutmeg. I also substituted coconut oil in place of the canola oil the original recipe called for. Then, I decided to make it into one big cake instead of 12 muffins. I am in love with this one. It is perfect for a coffee date, brunch, or dessert.

Good Morning Ginger Berry Green Smoothie

This is not your typical green smoothie. It starts out similar to my other smoothies with greens, almond milk and fruit.
