Avocado Face Mask from Zaaina Skincare

Your blender is not just for food! You can make amazing natural skincare. I am incredibly particular about what I put on my skin. If I can't put it in my mouth, I don't put it on my skin! I do use some commercially produced organic products for convenience. But I very often make my own homemade scrubs, masks and creams at home using my blender. Check out the amazing almond scrub I make using the leftover almond pulp from making almond milk! Also, don't miss my all-time favorite organic…

Vegan Cherry Pie Smoothie

I'm posting this vegan cherry pie smoothie in honor of my dad, who's been visiting from Australia for a month. Dad absolutely loves cherries, and this is his favorite smoothie. For those of you in Australia, fresh cherries are in season! Dad and I have been known at Christmas to devour bowls of cherries in one sitting and not come up for air. For those of you in Australia, New Zealand, Europe, or other places where frozen cherries are not widely available at the grocery store, you can…

Raw Zucchini Pasta with Alfredo Sauce

This healthy raw vegan alfredo pasta is quick, easy, and absolutely delicious. Just throw all of the ingredients in your high-speed blender and devour. To get the smoothest consistency with a conventional blender soak your nuts and seeds. This alfredo sauce has a lovely flavor that complements the raw zucchini noodles. To make zoodles, use a vegetable spiralizer (which is what I did) to make quick easy spaghetti-style noodles, or just use a vegetable peeler to shave off thick…

Incredibly Edible Edamame Dip

This recipe is addictive. Not only because it tastes so darn good, but because it only takes minutes to blend and devour. You will need a high-speed blender or food processor. A blender will give you a super smooth creamy dip. A food processor yields a more rustic consistency. Either way, tweak the lemon juice, cumin, red pepper flakes, and salt to get it just right. If you're serving this to children, omit the red pepper flakes. Serve this dip with raw vegetables and crackers, or…

Spicy Wake Up Green Smoothie from The Blender Girl Smoothies app

In honor of the new year, I'm posting this alkaline spicy wake up green smoothie from The Blender Girl Smoothies app and book. This tasty gazpacho-style blend serves up your daily quota of veggies. I drink this healthy veggie-packed blend almost every week. It's a fantastic meal replacement for energy, detox, and inflammation, and hangovers. Yep, that cayenne will wake you up and get you going! I like this blend a bit more salty than I've specified. But the quantities I've specified…

Vegan Sweet Potato Pudding

This vegan sweet potato pudding is a fantastic super easy plant-based holiday dish. Roast your sweet potato to get the best flavor. Cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg deliver those signature holiday flavors, orange juice and zest adds a tangy and sweet note, and maple syrup adds a nice smokey caramel note. Once again, "tweak-to-taste" and find the blend that is right for you. Just like the cranberry pudding, my favorite way to serve this pudding is straight out of the blender carriage…

Vegan Lentil Fennel Quinoa Salad from Marie-Guy Maynard

I got the recipe for this lentil and fennel quinoa from one of my favorite readers, Marie-Guy Maynard. I first connected with Marie-Guy after she left some comments on the facebook page and here on the site. Her family are big fans of the key lime pudding. We've been wonderful friends ever since, and she and her family have been amazing recipe testers for all my cookbooks. Read Marie-Guy's story here. I just served this quick easy salad to some friends and it received rave reviews.…

Raw Vegan EggNog from Tracy Russell

We are just days away from Thanksgiving in the US and I want to share a delicious raw vegan “eggnog” recipe that comes from the wonderful Tracy Russell at Incredible Smoothies. This is one of my favorite smoothie websites. Tracy and I have a lot of synergy in our approach to health and whole foods. She and I both eat a plant based diet with a lot of raw foods and green smoothies supplemented with some healthy cooked whole foods. So I was delighted when she agreed to do a recipe swap…

Vegan Chickpea and Rosemary Soup

The weather has finally turned in Southern California! As much as I mourn the loss of balmy summer nights, daylight savings, and sunshine, I do look forward to cuddling up in front of the fire with a delicious bowl of steaming soup. Soup is the ultimate comfort food - quick, easy, hearty, and nourishing, and so easy to throw together. I’ve been serving up this little gem since my college days, and it never goes out of style. On the table in under 20 minutes, it’s one of my go-to…

Gluten Free Vegan Mantecado Cookies

I am so excited to share this scrumptious recipe from November's Reader Of The Month, Magali Pès Schmid. She is one of my favorites readers, and her fascinating journey with whole foods is unending source of inspiration to me. She is an incredible self-taught cook who is always developing delectable recipes! These lemon and cinnamon cookies are absolutely delicious. Best of all, they are super easy! Just throw all of the ingredients into your mixer, food processor, or in a bowl with a…

Raw Vegan Orange Cranberry Pudding

This raw vegan orange cranberry pudding is quick, easy, and totally delicious. This healthy low-sugar dessert is a fantastic last-minute treat you can whip up in minutes. The zesty notes of the lemon and cranberry are balanced with the warm notes of the spices. This blend just screams fall, and the flavors strike a nice balance between tart, sweet, and spicy. I love to serve this pudding warm straight out of the blender container. But, it's also fantastic chilled. Either way, serve…

Raw Vegan Lemon Cranberry Cheesecake

I continue my celebration of cranberry season. We started with the cranberry raisin oatmeal cookies and the cranberry smoothie; and today we're making cheesecake. My favorite thing about this recipe is the gorgeous lush pink color and decadent creamy texture. But the real selling point for this cheesecake is how easy it is to make! Just throw all of the crust ingredients in your food processor, blend up the filling, and then assemble and freeze. Simply defrost this cake an hour before…
