Avocado Smoothie

Currently craving this creamy avocado smoothie. Suddenly, I cannot get enough avocado. I’m craving it in avocado smoothies, avocado frozen yogurt, avocado chocolate shakes, and am even just scraping it straight into my mouth. This is really strange… for most of my life I loathed avocado, despite giving my best effort to like the heart-healthy […]

Maple Caramel Brownie Ice Cream Sundaes

Two-ingredient caramel sauce… Yesterday was the birthday of a close friend, and when she asked me to make my Chocolate Fudge Zucchini Brownies, I came over with the works: frosted brownies, ice cream, and caramel sauce for a small gathering of friends. Maybe “gathering of friends” is the wrong phrase. It sounds so formal… like we […]

Watermelon Smoothie Recipe

An frosted homemade watermelon smoothie – the perfect way to cool off in the summer heat! I often played hostess for summer parties and gatherings as a teenager, because my family had a giant pool in the backyard that offered an escape from the brutal Texas heat. It was a great location for summer parties or for simply […]

Banana Pudding

Homemade banana pudding… Did you know that I once competed in a Banana Pudding Eating Contest? Yes, really… Can’t you picture it? It was at Six Flags, and I was with a group of friends. Hungry teenagers, lured by the thought of free banana pudding and Nilla wafers, we all decided to enter. About 3 […]

Healthy Oreo Milkshake

When I was playing soccer back in high school, I’d sometimes wake up with really bad leg cramps during the night, most likely thanks to a rigorous training schedule that included two-hour practices each day after class and a bike ride home because I didn’t have a car. Upon asking around, I was surprised to […]

Dole Whip Recipe – Bring Disney to your Kitchen!

Homemade pineapple Dole Whip! Do you know about the famous Disney Dole Whip? The original Dole Whip recipe—a swirled pineapple soft-serve dessert—enjoys somewhat of a cult following, with long lines of up to an hour at every location where it is served. There’s even an app to tell hungry tourists how long they can expect […]

Chocolate Chip Cherry Garcia Frozen Yogurt Recipe

Sweet cherry frozen yogurt, swirled with dark chocolate. When I lived in Philadelphia, we often took summer road trips to New York, driving past the bustling city and later the crazy-gigantic mansions of the Hamptons, our eyes glued out the window in the hopes of spotting a celebrity. We’d keep driving until the road collided with the ocean […]

Avocado Frozen Yogurt

Avocado Frozen Yogurt. The fourth week of May is known as National Frozen Yogurt Week, so I thought I’d play along this time: every single recipe on my blog this week will center around the frozen-yogurt theme, starting with today’s slightly-unconventional recipe for Avocado Frozen Yogurt. The avocado makes this frozen dessert extra creamy and […]

I’m trying to catch up with your emails and recipe questions. I also finally updated my About Chocolate-Covered Katie page. People kept saying I needed a new photo of me, since […]

Did you know that you can make your own healthy soda at home? It’s not hard at all! And it’s absolutely delicious in a cream soda float! Use your favorite coconut, vanilla, or homemade Healthy Ice Cream. (S is not a fan of coconut, which gave me a great excuse to try out a cashew-based […]

The Healthy Fruit & Yogurt Breakfast Bowl

A super easy breakfast recipe! I laugh when people leave angry comments on my blog, complaining my recipes are too simple, like this is a bad thing. In reality, it’s my goal to offer ideas and recipes that don’t require a Ph.D or a bunch of obscure ingredients. I want the recipes to be as […]
