Low-Calorie Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Perhaps an employee at Whole Foods secretly spiked my most-recent jar of peanut butter. How else can you explain why a chocoholic would crave nothing but peanut butter for the past three days? Yesterday, to feed the ever-growing peanut butter beast inside of me, I created this fast and easy peanut butter ice cream. No […]

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cookies

These. Are. Addictive. Very addictive. So addictive you can’t eat just one. So addictive you can’t eat just two. So addictive they should come with a warning label. Oh so very addictive. Not for sharing. Normally, I am very good about sharing my desserts with any friends who show up at my door. (And due […]

Ice Cream Sandwich Pancakes

Yesterday I had ice cream sandwiches for breakfast. Take that, cold cereal. And of course, in following the “healthy dessert” theme of this blog, the above ice cream pancakes are much healthier than they look. So please feel free to eat them for breakfast. Or lunch. Or dinner. Or, um, all three. Ice Cream Sandwich Pancakes […]

Starbucks Frappuccino Fudgsicles!

Hi chocolate-covered espresso beans! Ick, I tried a chocolate-covered espresso bean once. It was not good. Almost broke my tooth! And I hate how coffee beans—especially flavored ones—don’t taste as yummy as they smell. Chocolate-raspberry coffee? Snickerdoodle coffee? They sound good in theory… In reality, I’d much rather have Snickerdoodle Pancakes. Maybe with one of […]

Girl-Scout Cookie Larabars

I could do hot yoga in my backyard. Note: I said could, not would. I tried hot yoga once and hated it. It was just so… hot! I don’t like feeling sticky and sweaty, and therefore hot yoga is not my friend. Also not my friend when it’s hot? The oven! Lately, I’ve pushed the […]

5 Ingredient Rice Crispy Treats

Going back to school? When I was growing up, I’d often find a rice crispy treat—in that famous turquoise wrapper—packed into my school lunchbox. So rice crispy treats remind me of school… in a good way! No-bake, and they can be gluten-free! Rice Crispy Treats (Or you can make squares) 3 cups rice crispies (I used […]

Vegan Cool Whip

Oh my goodness goodness gosh. (Do I sound like a pre-teen at a Justin Bieber concert?) This light and creamy coconut whipped topping is totally dairy free, with just one main ingredient… but it has the exact same texture as real homemade whipped cream! Vegan Cool Whip (or coconut whipped cream) 1 can full-fat coconut milk (or coconut […]

Healthy Makeover: Ice Cream Bon Bons

Engulfed in a chocolate shell. Making bon bons may seem intimidating, but this recipe is really so simple. There are only three ingredients! And did I mention the filling is engulfed in chocolate? Engulf: to swallow up or immerse. I like that word when associated with chocolate. Being engulfed in chocolate is never a bad […]

Hot Fudge Brownie Larabars

Another chocolate recipe? My goodness, you’d think this was some sort of chocolate-covered blog. Oh wait; that’s right. It is. The first time I tried a Larabar, I didn’t really like it. My mistake was in choosing a cherry-flavored bar. Someone should’ve shaken me and said, Hello! Of course you didn’t like it, Katie. It […]

Healthy Chocolate Fudgsicles

Healthy Chocolate Fudgsicles. We left off with a breakfast recipe: Brownie Batter Pancakes. And now it’s on to dessert. You know, in case you’re still hungry after those insanely-chocolatey pancakes. A cool summer breeze. Untied shoelaces. And chocolate dripping down my face. My favorite thing about being a kid on summer vacation was the freedom. You […]

Healthy Starbucks Frappuccino

Starbucks is everywhere. They are taking over the world with their muffins, their macchiatos, their passion teas… And, of course, their signature coffee Frappuccinos. Here’s a scary fact: one Starbucks Frappuccino contains 50 grams of sugar. That’s more than twice the recommended intake for an entire day. The number is higher for a venti, and […]

Peanut Butter and Jelly Fudge

Guaranteed, you’ll never again look at pb&j the same way. One of my friends summed up the following recipe perfectly: “It’s like eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich… in fudge form!” PB&J Fudge 2 tbsp peanut butter 2 tbsp coconut butter or Homemade Coconut Butter very scant 2/3c berries (I used 80g strawberries. You can also […]

Dark Chocolate Brownie Batter Dip

First came cookie dough dip. And then, of course, there was also Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Dip. Someday soon, you might see peanut butter and jelly dip, red velvet dip, and oatmeal-raisin dip. But today, things are taking a turn for the worse better chocolate. Say hello to brownie batter dip. A new addition to my Healthy Gluten-Free […]

Coconut Chai Milkshakes

Thick. Luxurious. Coconut A few years ago, after drinking a coconut chai shake at Bonobos, I created my own version of the delicious spicy-sweet shake. I’m re-posting an updated version of the recipe today, because the old one was a little hard to follow. Put on a lei, close your eyes, and pretend you’re lounging under a […]

Pineapple Floats

With Coconut Ice Cream. I’m practicing for when I move to Hawaii. My friends used to love hanging out at my house when we were younger, probably because my mom was the best hostess. She’d always be prepared for guests with freshly-baked cookies, brownies, or even English muffin pizzas. Come summertime, one of her favorite treats to […]
