Orange Creamsicle Smoothie Bowl! 🍊🍊🍊Its officially smoothie bowl season 🙌🏻 Not that it matters because I legit have smoothie bowls all year long 💁♀️ Grabbed some blood oranges this week and thought what better way to celebrate the warmer weather than with this smoothie bowl combo. Does this remind anyone else of straight elementary school?!

Gluten-free, dairy-free apple crisp recipe! This recipe is vegan and also contains no refined sugar. It is not paleo as it does contain rolled oats, however it is possible to make this recipe paleo by subbing the oats for almond flour. This recipe is super simple, doesn’t require many ingredients, and you probably have all or most of the ingredients already in your fridge/pantry!
I recently started making my own dairy-free milk using oats! I liked using oats because they are less expensive than nuts and it is quicker to make oat milk because there is a shorter soak time. I have noticed that separation does occur so make sure to store in a bottle with a lid and shake before use. Oat milk should last about 4-5 days in the fridge.
Is it me, or does this smoothie just look like a spa?! Celebrating this AMAZING weather in Brooklyn with a Raspberry Cucumber Smoothie Bowl! That’s right, cucumber. Cucumbers are one of my favorite summer smoothie ingredients because they are super hydrating and taste soo refreshing! See recipe details below.
Are you a sweet potato or a regular potato person? I personally love sweet potatoes! You can make them savory, you can make them sweet – they are such a delicious add to meals! My favorite type of pasta is gnocchi but I don’t eat regular gnocchi too often because I generally avoid gluten. I’ve found cauliflower gnocchi to be a great substitute but I personally like making foods from scratch as often as possible in order to control what ingredients and how much of each ingredient are put into my food.
I’ve made this sweet potato gnocchi a few times now and it is great! It’s a lot easier to make than you would think. This recipe is gluten free – it uses cassava flour as the flour. If you haven’t heard of cassava flour it is a root vegetable and a staple in my kitchen. This recipe is also dairy free and vegan. It makes about 2 servings. See details below!
Sweet potato black bean burgers! I love veggie burgers. They are so delicious and very versatile- you can eat them on a bun with some sweet potato fries or throw them into a salad plate. These veggie burgers are gluten free and vegan. This recipe makes 4 veggie patties.
I’m really passionate about eating real food. I believe (and feel my best) when I eat fresh, real foods in the purest forms and minimize the amount of processed foods that I’m consuming. In my opinion, we don’t need all of those additives found in many processed foods today and its not doing our digestion any favors. For the past several months, I’ve started to make my own almond milk. Making your own almond milk is super easy and only requires two ingredients- almonds and milk. It is super simple and devoid of any thickeners and preservatives found in many store bought almond milks. I wrote an entire blog post on making your own almond milk and the benefits linked here.
I recently tried using blanched, sliced almonds to make my own almond milk vs. regular raw almonds. It was a complete game changer! This almond milk comes out naturally sweet and so so delicious! The recipe is very similar to the one I recently posted using regular, raw almonds just replaces them with blanched, almonds. See recipe below!
When the weather gets warmer, I crave all of the hydrating, fresh foods. I love this gazpacho dish because it’s super hydrating and refreshing – perfect for summer! I paired it with Sakara Life chia tortillas to dip. This recipe is raw, vegan, and gluten free. All you need is a blender to make!
