Pumpkin Spice Golden Milk Latte

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. πŸ˜‰

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.

Easy Vegan Nutella

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. πŸ˜‰ So here we go! Let’s do this. An easy, vegan, homemade Nutella sweetened with fruit, so it’s healthy and delicious.

Chocolate Golden Milk Smoothie

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!

Blueberry Pie Smoothie

I wanted something fresh, sweet, and really delicious, and a smoothie usually quenches that. Blueberries are a main staple in my diet, and they’re also fresh, sweet, and really delicious. So I figured I’d start there – with a blueberry pie smoothie. Smoothies are so refreshing! And it’s already heating up here in Phoenix, so this hits the spot.

(Sorry to the people who are experiencing snow! This was scheduled weeks in advance. My apologies.)

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 isΒ 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.

Sweet Potato Carrot Cake Muffins

Okay, you guys. I’ve been talking about these muffins since I made Baked Carrot Cake Oatmeal a couple of weeks ago. Once I started adding veggies to breakfast, I’ve wanted to throw them into everything! Which is how these delicious carrot cake muffins (made with sweet potato!) came about. So let’s bake some!

Chocolate Chip PB Quinoa Flour Cookie Bars

Husband made quinoa flour for pancakes a while back. We don’t use it all that often, but he made way more than he needed, so I figured I’d scour the internet search Pinterest for quinoa flour recipes. Vegan ones, of course. And I found a gem I wanted to try. It’s usually a gem if it includes chocolate and I have every single ingredient on hand (or know how to substitute the ones I don’t have).
