• Vegan Pumpkin Smoothie

    Drumroll, please. We’re trying out Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter today…in a vegan pumpkin smoothie.  Smoothies for fall? I mean, why not. Also, if you live in a city that’s summer all year long (ahem, I am looking at you Miami), but still want to hop on that pumpkin train, a cool and creamy vegan pumpkin smoothie just makes sense.  Okay.…

  • Quick Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

    What’s easier than dumping a handful of ingredients into a blender and making dessert? I guess just dumping them straight into your mouth, but that’s not as…satisfying.

  • Plant-Based Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie

    Who says you can’t have chocolate for breakfast? We’re breaking all of the rules this morning, because well, we’re adults. Okay, so we’re not breaking all of the rules. This plant-based chocolate raspberry smoothie is actually pretty healthy. The smoothie is loaded with fiber, protein, healthy fats, and it’s under 500 calories, making this breakfast smoothie nutritionally powerful and filling.…
