Carrot Cake Muffins

It may be a little early, but I’m so excited to share my Carrot Cake Muffins recipe! These Carrot Cake Muffins are my favorite spring treat. Like all of my dessert recipes, these muffins are super easy to make. All you need to do is blend the ingredients, place the batter into muffin tins, and bake for 15 minutes. Allow the muffins to cool, and top with the coconut cream “icing”, which can be made with just two ingredients.

Low Sugar Chocolate Chia Pudding

Looking for a low sugar breakfast idea? Look no further! Even if you’re not looking for low sugar recipes, this low sugar chocolate chia pudding makes the perfect breakfast or little desserts. The best part is they are super easy to make! The main preparation step is allowing the chia seeds to sit overnight to form a chia “pudding.” I like making multiple chia puddings at once, that way I have breakfast prepped for multiple days. This recipe makes 2 chia puddings.

Apple Cinnamon Scones

Caramelized apples are one of my favorite healthy treats. By caramelized apples, I mean apple slices that are sautéed in cinnamon and coconut oil. They get so fragrant and taste incredible!

Pina Colada Smoothie Bowl

If you’ve been following my blog for some time, you know that one my go-to breakfasts is a smoothie bowl. I love making smoothies for a few reasons: 1) It is a breakfast you can make in less than 5 minutes. 2) It is made with primarily frozen ingredients. I love using frozen produce because it is nutritious, typically less expensive than fresh produce, and it doesn’t expire quickly. 3) They taste AMAZING! It’s literally like you are eating dessert, except my smoothies are packed with fruits and veggies. Smoothies are such an easy way to consume a ton of veggies. In the spirit of summer, I was inspired to make a Pina Colada Smoothie Bowl. This smoothie is made with just four simple ingredients. You read that right, ONLY FOUR INGREDIENTS!

Introducing you to my all time favorite summer oatmeal combo- Pineapple Overnight Oats! I’m not exaggerating when I say that I basically ate these overnight oats everyday for a full summer. These overnight oats are served cold and the fresh pineapple gives them a refreshing and delicious flavor. This recipe is so easy to make- all you do is combine ingredients, let them sit in the fridge overnight, and then enjoy the next morning! As much as I like oatmeal, who wants to eat warm oats over the summer? Not me. That’s why these oats make the perfect summer breakfast.

Green Goddess Smoothie

This Green Goddess Smoothie is by far my favorite summer smoothie! It was actually the first smoothie combo that I have ever made. It’s a fun green color and tastes super refreshing. The green color comes both from spinach and wheatgrass. Wheatgrass has a grassy taste that isn’t too strong so its an easy add to any smoothie. Wheatgrass is rich in nutrients and antioxidants. However, wheatgrass comes from the wheat plant and can contain gluten depending on how it is harvested. It may be best to avoid wheatgrass if you are gluten-free.
