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!
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.
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. It’s SO good and pretty easy to make, even when you make the layers (like the beans, the sour cream, the guacamole, and the cheese) from scratch. 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.
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.)
It’s still technically winter, and it’s been pretty chilly in the mornings here in Arizona, so it’s still time for soup. But I always love a good soup. Especially something cheesy (vegan cheesy, of course). Plus, vegetables are always better when they’re covered in a vegan cheese. And this one is actually healthy for us! No cholesterol in sight. So feel free to get a huge bowl of this comforting, indulgent soup. And even seconds.
St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow! So it’s a great excuse to make ALL the green recipes, including this one. Because I couldn’t let the Friday before St. Patrick’s Day go by without posting a GREEN baked oatmeal. Nope. No way. So let’s make some green baked oats for this festive occasion, shall we?
I aim to have a green smoothie every day. Does that happen? No. Of course not. Haha. I love to bake, so I inevitably end up doing that instead of making a smoothie. The good thing is that I usually put flax, walnuts, and turmeric in most of the things I bake, which is mostly why I like to make green smoothies: so I can hide those things and get them into my diet.
