This is that smoothie for me! It’s helped me get through some late night cravings (hello Whole30!!) and early mornings.

It’s got a delightful berry flavor with a surprising note of tropical pineapple that keeps your tastebuds interested the whole glass. To me this smoothie is everything a smoothie should be, easy, refreshing and energizing.

I also love that it has a healthy does of Omega-3’s as well. Thanks to the chia seeds in this smoothie, you’ll be getting protein, fiber, and a whole bunch of good for you bonuses. And as a double bonus, I added spinach that you won’t even taste…talk about a power packed smoothie!

Banana Split Popsicles
Banana Split Popsicles

Oooooh boy is summer here! It's hot hot hot and the best way to cool down is with a popsicle!! These healthy popsicles not only have an amazing flavor, but they are extremely filling as well. 

I added honey into the recipe, but you could definitely leave it out. I think they are sweet enough without the honey, but you definitely have the option to sweeten them up! 

I used melted dark chocolate with crushed nuts and sprinkles for my toppings, but feel free to play with the toppings. I think that melted peanut butter drizzled over the top would taste amazing as well!

Apple Crumble

Mmmm Mmmmm is all I have to say about this recipe! I had a craving for a good apple crumble minus the sugary syrup versions I have eaten in the past. Apples, cinnamon and a good oat topping is what I was looking for. I also didn't want to have a pool of butter hanging out at the bottom of my bowl when I was done eating. Clean, simple and bursting with sweet apples is what I set out to create!

The oat topping adds natural sweetness from the coconut flakes and pecans. Adding in the nuts helps give this apple crumble a nice texture and a natural buttery flavor. 

This recipe came together extremely quickly and hit my sweet tooth! I can't wait to sub the apples for cherries or peaches the next time I make this!! 

Enjoy!

  • 1 tablespoon almond flour

Instructions

Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, mix together apples, cinnamon and honey. Pour into an ungreased 8x8 baking dish. In another bowl, combine oats, flour, honey, oil, pecans and coconut flakes.
