Apple Cinnamon Oats

Have you been apple picking recently? This past weekend, I went apple picking with some friends in upstate New York. I love apple season and making recipes with fresh, seasonal apples.

For breakfast all of this week, I have been making these Apple Cinnamon Oats. They are made with just a few, simple ingredients and the recipe is both gluten free and vegan.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

If you tasted this recipe, you may be wondering if its a chocolate peanut butter smoothie or a milkshake? You will be shocked to see that this smoothie is packed with fruit and vegetables, but tastes like an indulgent treat! Even better, it can be made with just five ingredients and in less than five minutes. If that sounds good, then you’re going to love this Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie!

Smoothies are a great breakfast option for busy mornings. I love making smoothies because they can be made in less than five minutes and you can take them with you on the go. Smoothies are also a great option because they can be made with frozen fruits and vegetables. Frozen produce lasts longer and tends to be less expensive than fresh produce. I personally love keeping frozen produce stocked in my freezer to toss into smoothies.

Blueberry Basil Smoothie

I went to pick up basil from the grocery store the other week and they only had a basil plant available. Because of this, I purchased the basil plant and decided to pot it. I figured it wouldn’t last long in my windowsill so I just potted the plant in an old glass jar. I have tried to grow basil plants in my windowsill multiple times and have so far been unsuccessful. Maybe because I’ve been home more and my basil plant is getting the TLC it needs, but it is thriving in my windowsill! Now, I’m going to have to think about re-potting into an actual pot… My new, thriving basil plant as well as the warmer weather inspired me to make this Blueberry Basil smoothie. This recipe is gluten free, vegan, paleo, and whole 30 and only requires 4 ingredients to make!
