Strawberry Lemonade

This week Lemons were on sale for 3 for $1 and they were huge! So, I bought 15. What do you do when life gives you lemons? Make lemonade of course! 
My family loved this recipe. It is sweet, yet satisfyingly tart.

2 C. Frozen strawberries
1 C. fresh squeezed Lemon Juice (you can buy a citrus juicer just about anywhere)
1/4 C. Maple Syrup
4-5 C. water

Blend in the blender (I used my Vitamix).




 I am always looking for healthy snack options. I love Hummus with Veggies. It is packed with goodness, satisfying, and filling.

1 Can Garbanzo Beans, drained
1/4 C. Fresh squeezed Lemon Juice
1/4 C. Tahini
1 tsp. diced Garlic
2 Tbsp. Coconut oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. Ground Cumin
2 Tbsp. water

Blend in the blender (I used my Vitamix). Top with Paprika or chili powder.

Serve with your favorite Veggies.

I also love to use Hummus in place of Mayo or to spread on Wasa Crackers. Yummy!

I got this recipe idea from Inspiredtaste, but tweaked it to make it my own. :)


Candy Cane Green Smoothie

This recipe was so good, I actually made it twice in one day and that's not normal for me.

2 C. Almond Milk
2 Frozen Bananas
6 Mint Leaves (I either use ones I have dried or frozen)
1 Scoop Vanilla Raw Meal (By Garden of Life) or Vanilla Protein Powder
1 C. Spinach

Blend in a blender (I used my Vitamix). Enjoy!

Serve in a Fancy Cup and top with Candy Canes if desired.

This is Vegan, Dairy, and Gluten Free. 


Red Velvet Nice Cream

I love Red Velvet Cake. So does my Grandma. So, I think my love for Red Velvet Cake is Nostalgic. But, lets fast forward from when I use to eat whatever I wanted when I wanted it.  Now, when I eat Cake I feel really happy and then lousy.

I wanted to recreate something that tasted like Red Velvet Cake, but was healthy. So, here we go.

3 Frozen Bananas
1/2 Frozen Beet
1 C. Frozen Strawberries
1 Scoop Chocolate Raw Mseal (or other Chocolate Protein Powder)
1 Tbsp. Cacao Powder
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 C. Almond Milk

Blend in a High Speed Blender (I used the Vitamix). Use the wand and blend until smooth.

Top with Chocolate Sauce:

1 Tbsp. of each:
Raw Honey
Coconut Butter 
Peanut Butter
Cacao Powder
Coconut Oil

Warm over the stove or in the microwave.

Top with Unsweetened Coconut Flakes.

This is delicious and Nutritious!

Tomatoes are good for the Heart

Some people say that if produce is shaped like a part of the 

body, it's good for it. So tomatoes must be good for the 



Peach Refresher

This is tonights smoothie with our dinner. Tastes like it could be straight off the menu at Jamba Juice. Water, frozen peaches, pomegranate, grapes, carrots. So refreshing!

Recipe by: Me


Hey everyone! I love eating healthy and feeding my family (5 kids & A husband) nutritious food as well. I started posting food pictures and recipes on and then onto Facebook (my personal account) and then onto Instagram (my personal account). I would now like to share my recipes with you on this blog. I love food! But, most of all I love the way healthy food makes me feel...energetic, clarity of mind, happy, and strong.
