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…

Body Ecology Tart Cranberry & Almond Smoothie

I'm posting this Body Ecology cranberry smoothie in honor of the release of Donna Gate’s new book, “The Baby Boomer Diet” and the companion DVD series, “Growing Younger". Those of you who've been following me for a while would be familiar with how The Body Ecology Diet changed my life. I had suffered lethargy and candida my whole life, and after trying every whole foods diet known to man, I started on Body Ecology stage one and never looked back. Donna had successfully cherry picked…

Raw Lemon Cranberry Raisin Oatmeal Cookies

It is cranberry season and I could not be happier! I admit to having performed my signature dance of joy with reckless abandon in the middle of the farmer's market on the weekend whilst salivating over all of the plump delicious fresh cranberries on offer. The "tart-at-heart" in me was rejoicing as I contemplated "death by excessive cranberry consumption." Just call me the scarlet lady! What can I say, those plump glossy tart little berries were just begging to be exploited! So, I…

Super Spinach and Chickpea Burgers

I am posting these spinach and chickpea burgers in honor of my dear friend Kris. Those of you who have been following me for a while will remember Kris from many of my posts: the potato salad, key lime mousse, cherry limeade mocktail, spinach dip, socca and many many others others. You might also remember her packing my car with the precision of an obsessed surgeon when I moved to LA last year! I have made many trips back to Missouri, she has come to visit me in LA, and we speak almost…

Vegan Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

I've got a simple little gem today. This soup is a staple in our house during the fall. When butternut squash is in season in North America I always crave my mother's roasted veggies. I love heading up to my local farmer's market and picking some different varieties of squash to roast with some carrot, onions, and garlic. Roasting is righteous. Baking these foods brings out the natural sweetness and gives you a beautiful depth of flavor. The ginger and cilantro root is mellow,…

Super Fruity Fever Green Smoothie

This smoothie is heavenly. It's one of my favorite sweet blends. If you've never tried baby bok choy in a smoothie, add it to you leafy green rotation because it's mild in flavor, and goes into most blends unnoticed. Pair with sweet fruits like pineapple, mango, banana, apple, pear, citrus, berries, and grapes. Start with 1 cup, and add to taste. In large amounts, it can get slightly bitter. Rich in vitamins A, C, and K, folate, calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, phosphorous,…

But after rubbing my dairy-drenched belly on way too many occasions I had to develop a recipe that would enable my addiction without the need to coat-check my colon! This recipe from The Blender Girl smoothies app hits the spot. Now, I'll warn you, this smoothie is for green tea lovers. If that's not you, move onto the next smoothie. This smoothie has distinct strong green tea flavor. What I love the most about…

Vegan Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie from The Blender Girl Smoothies app

Those of you who've tasted the pumpkin pie, pecan pie, apple pie, blueberry pie, peach pie, cherry pie, and lemon cheesecake smoothies may already share my pie-in-a-glass-smoothie obsession. If not, here's my spiel: On days when you're not inclined to bake to get your pie-lovin fix, a liquid pie smoothie satisfies the cravings. This healthier spin is gentler on the hips but no less delectable on the lips. Today, I cast the sensational orange-flesh sweet potato as the star attraction…

This salty and savory smoothie tastes like liquid guacamole and is an alkaline avenger containing some of the top alkaline forming foods to bolster health. Kale - 1 cup can be added to most smoothies without changing the flavor. Pair with tomato, avocado, coconut, chile, lime, lemon (juice and zest), and bell pepper in savory blends.
