Nearly every single day, I make a golden milk latte. No coffee for me though, so it’s basically turmeric and other spices and adaptogens in the walnut/pepitas milk I make (1/2 cup walnuts/pepitas combined, 6 cups water, 12 medjool dates – blend) or my homemade cashew milk. But I thought I’d make it a little easier on myself by making a premade mix so I didn’t have to open up all of my spices and containers each time.
You know I’m all about food prepping these days, so it made sense to simplify this too. 🙂
Finally! Not another oatmeal! And this one is PERFECT for the beautiful fall weather we’re not really experiencing here in Phoenix… LOL. Honestly, I don’t care if it’s still over 90F. I’m drinking this creamy, dreamy, delicious pumpkin spice golden milk latte anyway. Bet. 😉
I’m NOT a coffee drinker, so anything called “latte” in my book doesn’t have coffee. But if you want to add some, feel free to replace some of the water with it. My version has no caffeine, no refined sugar, and no hard-to-find or artificial ingredients. It’s easy peasy from start to finish, so let’s do this.
It’s been a long time! Lots and lots going on – mostly in my writing life. Mostly, I’ve been making the same recipes (and y’all know that my husband is the one who cooks). He’s also the one who found a recipe for this and made it into his own. Honestly, I don’t think I’d eat nearly as well without him. 😉 So here we go! Let’s do this. An easy, vegan, homemade Nutella sweetened with fruit, so it’s healthy and delicious.
Today is RAWctober day 1. It’s a whole month of raw vegan eating. I don’t have a ton of raw recipes on here, but I’ll probably post more as the month goes on. Like this one! A seriously yummy and creamy chocolate blueberry smoothie perfect for some added sweetness to your day. Enjoy!
Y’all. I’m obsessed with Watermelonade. We all know this. I’ve made regular, Pineapple, and even mango. Also peach! But I bought some clearance plums the other day and knew exactly what I wanted to do with them. Thus, Plum Watermelonade was born and it’s DELIGHTFUL! Goodness, life is amazing.
This Doggy Cookie Dough recipe came about when I was making the Doggy Peanut Butter Fudge. In fact, I’m not gonna lie: It’s the same three ingredients in the same measurements. It’s just not formed into bites, so it’s even easier. It looks like cookie dough and tastes a little like it (just less sweet). Your dogs will love it nonetheless though, so let’s get to it, shall we?
This apple pie smoothie, y’all. There’s something about it that’s super comforting. It reminds me of happiness and a simple way of life. It’s sweet and perfectly spiced, and though it’d be better in the fall, I’m all about bring fall to me right now (like we did with the Baked Apple Cider Oatmeal). So let’s go make this delicious smoothie!
Mine’s green because I add greens, but you don’t have to. Starting with a base of bananas is a good idea though. Then we add all the other amazing ingredients, like apple, dates (for sweetness though optional), cinnamon, nutmeg, walnuts, oats, and flax/chia. You can even include maca or turmeric (+ black pepper for more turmeric bioavailability) for an even healthier drink!
I really can’t get enough of this one. I’ve made it before, but it was time to make it again – and boy, am I glad I did! It’s refreshing but comforting right now as summer continues to heat up my part of my world. Cheers to you if you make one!

A smooth, sweet, creamy, and perfectly spiced apple pie smoothie perfect for breakfast on a fast-paced morning. Throw in the blender and go!
- 1-2 ripe bananas (frozen works best)
- 1 cup water
- 1 handful greens (I chose power greens)
- 1 apple, roughly chopped (I prefer pink lady or honeycrisp)
- 1/4 cup oats
- (optional) 1-2 dates, pitted (for sweetness)
- 1 small handful walnuts
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp ground flax/chia
- 1 pinch nutmeg
- (optional) 1/4 - 1/8 tsp turmeric (+ a dash of black pepper for better bioavailability)
- (optional) ice (as needed)
Add all ingredients to blender one by one. Then blend until smooth and well combined.
Pour into glass and enjoy. Store leftovers covered in refrigerator for up to 48 hours, though best when fresh.
It’s still REALLY hot here in Phoenix, so something cold hits the spot. Something like this juice! It’s a yummy mix of orange juice and frozen mango that blends well together. It’s sweet, smooth, and delicious. So let’s go make some mango orange juice please and cool the heck off!
As you can tell, I’m in love with golden milk right now. It’s creamy. It’s smooth. It’s sweet. It’s spiced. It’s downright delicious. And sometimes it’s chocolaty, like the one we made last week. So let’s make a smoothie out of it, okay? Okay!
Y’all. Several summers ago, I made Watermelonade and it blew my mind. This summer, I saw a post on facebook from The Chocolate Vegan about blending watermelon with pineapple instead of lemon and thought, Yeah, I should try that. Pineapple watermelon juice sounds good.
Holy moly, you guys. I’m so glad I went for it!! But I had to take it to the next level with some lemon juice. And YESSSS that’s even BETTER! So let’s get in the kitchen and makes some Pineapple Watermelonade, shall we? Come on!
