Chocolate “Protein” Milkshake

Pin It!

It’s the chocolate protein shake that tastes like a chocolate milkshake… And because there’s actually no protein powder in the recipe, you don’t get that chalky aftertaste present in most chocolate protein shakes. You just feel like you’re drinking a chocolate milkshake. Yes, a chocolate milkshake. Hopefully I didn’t worry you with my last post. […]

No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Pin It!

I need to tell you something… and it’s pretty shocking. You might want to sit down for this. There’s more to life than chocolate. I didn’t believe it either, until I tried this rich and creamy no-bake peanut butter pie. It’ll only take one bite to convince you: There is life outside Planet Chocolate. For my […]

My Birthday

Pin It!

Birthday highlights: Breakfast was an old favorite: Homemade Banana Yogurt. With extra banana, sliced strawberries, cacao nibs, and a homemade granola recipe (going in the cookbook). Not pictured: A side of Ezekiel toast spread with Nutzo nut butter. Not exactly the fanciest of birthday breakfasts, but it was delicious nonetheless. During the day I went […]

Frozen S’mores on a Stick

Pin It!

This is how we make s’mores in Texas, where it’s much too hot for campfires:                                   No, not really. Really, I made these frozen s’mores pops for a friend’s Labor Day party, for all the kids in attendance. Someone […]

Vegan Pinkberry Frozen Yogurt?

Unhappy feet. As a runner, I think I’m in good shape. But every time I go to NYC I’m reminded there’s a whole new meaning to the idea of being in shape! (Fuschia dress courtesy of Gap… on sale! Orange bag courtesy of Organic Avenue. Who needs a $150 Coach bag when you can use […]

Healthy Graham Cracker Pie Crust

Pin It!

Sometimes a recipe is so simple it makes you wonder why you hadn’t thought of it before… This healthy pie crust is one of those recipes. I started with two basic ingredients, fully intending to add more. However, when I mixed those first ingredients together, I was surprised to find it really didn’t need anything else to become […]

Green Lemonade

Pin It!

The healthiest drink in the world? Lemonade stands will never be the same. I don’t think I ever sold lemonade as a kid. I ran a cookie stand and a hot chocolate stand, and my friend and I once sold flowers we picked from her mom’s garden. (Not a good idea; nobody bought flowers, and […]

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Balls

Pin It!

You know you want one.                     Or two. Or four hundred and fifty four. Maybe not four hundred and fifty four. Then you’d get a stomachache, and that’s no fun. 😕 On the other hand, the stomachache might be worth it. For chocolate and peanut butter? […]

Healthier Wendy’s Vanilla Frosty

Pin It!

This recipe tastes similar to a Wendy’s vanilla Frosty. It’s like one of those thick vanilla milkshakes you’d find at a fast-food restaurant… but without all the empty calories and sugar to make you feel sluggish. The recipe actually came about by accident: I was working on a Tiramisu ice cream, and when I stopped […]

Peanut Butter Covered Strawberries

Pin It!

Forget chocolate. Okay, no wait. I didn’t say that! You didn’t hear that! Don’t ever ever ever forget chocolate. Never ever. NEVER!!! But maybe… Maybe just put the chocolate aside for today (or for an hour; however long you can last), and try out this peanut butter twist on the classic chocolate-covered strawberries: They’re like […]

My Magazine Feature

Pin It!

I don’t really like the self-promotion aspect of blogging. To be honest, I feel embarrassed and self-centered asking you to follow me, pinning my photos to the CCK Pinterest page, tweeting my own links… I worry it makes me come across as vain; in real life that’s not how I am at all! I’d much rather focus […]

See this peach crumble? It’s not your average peach crumble. It’s more like you are serving yourself a warm bowl of peach pie filling… Every bite bursts with sweet summer peaches, quietly accented by a soft and buttery crumble. This recipe is for anyone who likes their pie with extra filling and very little crust! This crumble is […]
