Rawsome Carrot Cake Pudding

This carrot cake pudding is quick, easy, and delicious. I don't want to mislead you and pretend this can replace a delectable piece of gluten free vegan carrot cake. Sadly, it cannot. However, if you are not inclined to bake and want a little taste of some of the notes of a carrot cake, this pudding hits the spot. I decided to try a variation-on-a-theme after the popularity of the orange cranberry pudding and sweet potato pudding. Give these blender desserts a go. They are super quick…

Pineapple Ginger-Aid Green Smoothie

This is a very short post today, as this is my last day with my parents before they fly back to Australia. Boo! But, the good news is that they will be back in 7 weeks. Yipppeeee! So, I will refrain from blubbering all the way home from the airport on the 405 listening to love songs on the coast. I promised to post my mum's favorite green smoothie before she left, so here it is. She loves this pineapple ginger-ade green smoothie. This blend is a delightful sweet and mild introduction…

Vegan Creamy Green Soup

This is a short post today as I just picked up dear friend Kat from the airport. We went to high school together in Singapore, and when her parents moved to Indonesia she remained as a boarding student and my parents were her guardians. She became part of our family, and I think of her as my second sister. She's a Qantas flight attendant and manages to snag the odd trip to L.A. So time is of the essence and I want to soak up every single second with her. This is also my last weekend…

Avocado Face Mask

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

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

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…
