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 […]

Brownie Batter Pancakes

Brownie Batter > Brownies Just in case we didn’t make that clear with the Chocolate Brownie Batter Dip. Now, another brownie recipe. What can I say? I like brownie batter! That is a photo worthy of a chocolate-covered blog. For the past few days, one of my friends has been staying with me while she […]

Blueberry Ketchup???

Does this situation sound familiar: You’re in the grocery store, ready to pay. But which line to choose??? I feel like I always choose wrong when it comes to picking a grocery-store checkout line. Without fail, I’ll end up in the longest line every time. However, this is not necessarily a bad thing. It gives […]

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 […]

Single-Serving Peanut Butter Cookies

Helloooo Chocolate Sprinkles! Many of you had the same query about the Dark Chocolate Brownie Batter Dip. “What am I supposed to dip in it?” Really, you can dip anything: bananas, strawberries, graham crackers, pancakes, your fingers… you can even mix it into oatmeal or ice cream! Or you can get really, really naughty and […]

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 […]

Chocolate-Cherry Bomb Oatmeal

Attack of the Chocolate! I said I was going to bombard you with dessert recipes. And what better way to begin the attack than with a chocolate-cherry bomb? Another Crazy Oatmeal Recipe! You can find all my crazy oatmeal recipes here: All things Oatmeal. I’m also working on tagging my oatmeal posts. This recipe was […]

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 […]

My “go-to” chocolate cupcake recipe

This is a chocolate-covered blog Yet, up until a few weeks ago, it included neither a recipe for chocolate brownies nor one for chocolate cupcakes. Some chocolate blog! Last month, I took on the brownies: Ultimate Fudge Brownies. (Side note: I wish I’d created those brownies a long time ago! They’re so fudgey and chocolatey […]

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 […]

Never Ending Oatmeal Bowl

When I first tried chia seeds (in the form of chia pudding), I wasn’t a fan. I wanted to like them: they’re so good for you. But eating something just because it’s good for you? Ridiculous! You don’t have to suffer for health. If you aren’t big on a certain food, there are plenty of […]

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

It is so hot here! Can someone please invent the Ice Cream Diet? Where you eat ice cream for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? A few of you told me there already is an ice cream diet. Why am I surprised? After all, there’s a grapefruit diet, a cabbage soup diet, even a No White Foods […]
