Raspberry Chocolate Lava Cake

In addition to my chocolate and coconut obsession, I also have an obsession with raspberry chocolate. It all started with Dove's Irresistibly Raspberry ice cream, a mouthful of heaven comprised of vanilla ice cream swirled with raspberry sorbet and Dove dark chocolate. Undoubtedly the best thing I've ever eaten. Sadly, it was discontinued a few [...]

Banana Rum Shake

This is one my favorite adult milkshakes, except it’s made with light coconut milk and medjool dates instead of ice cream! I generally use one date, but feel free to throw in an extra if you want a little more caramel flavor. This shake is a great summer cocktail, and dangerously good! When I was [...]

3-Ingredient Lentil Dip

The first time I tried this recipe, I didn't even know what lentils were. A friend of mine served it at a get-together, and I couldn't stop eating it. This was also the recipe that made me fall in love with goat cheese. Most lentil dip recipes use feta cheese, but my friend had used [...]

Blackberry Fizz Cocktail

I have a similar cocktail posted on this blog for a Blueberry Vodka Fizz, but this one is a bit different, as it also contains fresh squeezed lemon juice, and uses berry flavored seltzer water. For those of you who prefer the taste of blackberries, this one's for you! When I was preparing cocktails to [...]

Spicy Chai Hot Chocolate

I'm always looking for healthy coffee alternatives to kick off my day. Generally, most mornings I have a cup of flavored coffee with a splash of coconut milk, but it's nice to switch it up once in a while. Recently, I read an article with lots of fun hot chocolate recipes - one was a chai [...]

Lentil Vegetable Soup

I've been saving this lentil vegetable soup recipe until it was the appropriate time to post it. And since I came down with a cold this week and have been eating it for the past 2 days, I think now is the time! I love homemade soup because store-bought soup tends to contain a very [...]

This apple cinnamon french toast recipe is quick and easy, completely clean, and made with the healthiest bread on the market: sprouted grain bread. (I use Ezekiel Food for Life cinnamon raisin bread for this recipe.) I mention sprouted grain bread in a lot of my posts, because a) I LOVE bread, and b) I [...]

Dairy-Free Nutella

This dairy-free homemade Nutella only contain 5 ingredients and is completely clean. Normally, Nutella is made with hazelnuts, but I used peanut butter in this recipe for a few reasons. The first reason is that, I can't find hazelnut butter anywhere. The second reason is that, although most recipes recommend making your own hazelnut butter, it [...]

3-Ingredient Creamy Fruit Dip

This creamy fruit dip only requires three ingredients, and takes less than 5 minutes to make. As a Los Angeles native, my friends and I go to the outdoor movies quite a bit, and we all bring snacks to share with the group. I've always wanted to bring a fruit plate along with a tasty fruit dip, but most [...]

Mango Sticky Rice

For years, I was so excited to go out for Thai food because Thai restaurants were the only place I could order mango sticky rice for dessert. For some reason, it never occurred to me to make my own... and I never realized how easy it is! For most mango sticky rice recipes, you have to soak the [...]

Fireball Apple Cider

Being born and raised in Boston, I hated the winters growing up. But ever since moving to California, I find myself more and more missing something I never thought I'd miss... snow! Every year, I make it a habit to plan a winter trip. Sometimes I go back home for Thanksgiving or Christmas, other times [...]

German Chocolate Brownies

Ever since I discovered that you can substitute sugar with dates in virtually any dessert recipe, I can't stop thinking of new desserts I want to make. German chocolate cake was my favorite as a kid (I've always had a weakness for chocolate-coconut combos), so I concocted these guilt-free German chocolate brownies! They're made with gluten-free [...]

Cranberry Mulled Wine Cider

My Fireball Apple Cider recipe has been extremely popular on Pinterest lately, and I can only assume it's because it's the perfect drink to warm you up during the holiday season. But now that cranberries are in season, there's nothing that makes me feel more festive than a hot spiced cranberry mulled wine cider. Up until recently, [...]
