Apple Fauxnuts Yes, I’m back with another apple post!  Two posts in a row!  I just can’t help it, apples are just too good in the fall.  If you missed last week’s Apple Pie Smoothie, make sure to check it out! It’s a great seasonal breakfast.   Plus, I included a little info on apples you might find interesting. I’ve been slicing apples and topping with almond butter and dark chocolate chips for some time now, but it wasn’t until I came across the Lorna Jane blog post on apple fauxnuts that I was inspired to make my snack look like donuts and to get even more creative with my toppings! These fauxnuts are a perfect snack, breakfast or dessert.  Plus, they are super fun to make since they look like donuts and you can add all kinds of fun toppings!  Unlike donuts, however, there is no guilt with enjoying these treats plus they are gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free, refined sugar-free, basically all kinds of free.  Plus, all the goodness from the apples and protein and healthy fats from the almond butter.  I prefer the freshly ground almond butter from Whole Foods that you grind yourself.  keep reading

Peach Pie Smoothie I wanted to wrap up our 4-week summer smoothie series with an all time summer favorite – peaches! Delicious and juicy, peaches seriously hit the spot during these hot sunshine-filled days. This stone fruit is a great source of vitamins C, A and E, potassium, iron, and flavonoids. For this smoothie, I decided to create that familiar peach pie taste and bonus…it’s packed with nutrients and is dairy-free, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free.   So, it’s basically healthy peach pie in a jar!  keep reading

Healthy Chocolate Banana Ice Cream Um, yes please! This stuff is amazing. Homemade banana ice cream is one of my favorite super easy healthy treats to make.  We’re talking 5-ingredient easy for this recipe.  It’s vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, & refined sugar-free…clearly a very clean and healthy treat for you. The two main ingredients are bananas and cacao powder. As I’m sure you already know, bananas are great for you. They aid in weight loss, are great to eat before a workout, can help improve mood and overcome depression, aid digestion, assist in absorbing nutrients, build strong bones, can make you more alert, and the list goes on. Raw cacao powder is a staple in my kitchen at all times. It’s high in antioxidants, high in minerals like magnesium, zinc, iron & chromium, is great for your beautiful little heart, and…it’s raw chocolate…enough said. keep reading
