Vegan 7-Layer Dip

You may want to stop everything you’re doing right now and make this vegan 7-layer dip. It’s become a favorite in this house. You could almost call it a staple.

But you can easily make these layers with store-bought vegan foods too. So let’s open a bag of tortilla chips and follow the delicious journey to the perfect vegan 7-layer dip.

Pineapple Mango Grapefruit Smoothie

A few months ago, we had SO MANY GRAPEFRUITS! A local group of kind folks volunteer to “rescue” citrus from trees in a couple of retirement communities. The people with orange and grapefruit trees in their yards can’t eat it all and don’t want to pick it, so we do it for them. In return, we get to keep most of it. We can use it or donate it, and it’s awesome. We tried to use a lot of it, but it was SO much fruit!!

Pineapple Orange Juice

One of my favorite things EVER is juicing oranges and blending the juice with frozen pineapple. OMG, you guys. You get this deliciously refreshing, ice-cold, sweet drink perfect for breakfast or a summer afternoon cool-down. It’s tropical, juicy, and so freaking yummy! I could drink it every day. Plus, it’s so easy to do! Especially if you don’t juice your own oranges. But that’s how I prefer it. Totally up to you though.

Cashew Sour Cream

Did you catch my Facebook Live video the other day? If not, no big deal. The replay is up and you’re more than welcome to enjoy the awkwardness of my very first FB live. Well, the first one that actually posted correctly. It’s for a meal I seriously love but can’t take an appealing photo of to save my life. Maybe if I cut and stuffed the sweet potato, it’d look prettier. But I smash it. Because why not? Anyway, I top sweet potato and beans with this creamy, cool, tasty cashew sour cream! It’s super easy to make, so let’s go!

We make this in our house at least 2x a month. It lasts about 7-10 days, which is nice. It’s the perfect topping to most things we eat: baked potatoeschilinachostacosburritossalads, and more! We love using it to make mashed potatoes and dips for fries. It’s versatile, and the only thing between you and this deliciousness is putting everything in the blender and letting it run. Easy peasy! You won’t regret it.

Veggie Sushi Bowls

Maybe you’ve noticed, but I love food in bowls. All of my baked oatmeals are in bowls. Most of my dinners are in bowls. But these are the easiest, most delicious bowls you could make right now. They’re super inexpensive too! And very customizable. I’ll show you our favorite way to make these, but switch the veggies up to your heart’s content! Yummm. 🙂

Cashew Milk

This cashew milk is my absolute favorite. It’s sweetened from dates, and it doesn’t need to be strained! If you’ve ever made almond milk (or read a recipe about almond milk and decided NO), then you know how not fun straining milk is. I’m SOOOO all about whatever’s easiest, and cashew milk is soooo easy! Plus, it’s forgiving and customizable. So let’s do this.

Make a quick, homemade cashew milk in a matter of minutes. Throw ingredients into blender, blend, and enjoy! NO straining needed and no sugar added! #fruitsohard #vegan #glutenfree #nondairymilk #milk #cashewmilk #recipe

Golden Milk Latte

Finally, a recipe where the turmeric I add is not optional! I put turmeric in nearly everything, but this drink isn’t golden milk without it.

If you aren’t familiar with golden milk, let’s chat. It’s a yummy drink made with your (nondairy) milk of choice + turmeric (the golden part) + black pepper and a healthy fat (for turmeric absorption). You can spice it up with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cardamom, etc. Sweetening is my preferred method, so I add dates to the mix. And the healthy fat is usually oil, but I’m a no-oil kinda gal, so here’s my take on a creamy, dreamy golden milk latte.
