My goal is always to eat clean, but sometimes I cannot fight the urge to indulge on a perfectly warm and sweet dessert. Mug cakes are great because you are making a single serving of cake and you can completely control how much sugar and fat go in it. No need to cook from a box! With peach and cinnamon as the main flavors, I call this delicious dessert the Peach Cobbler Inspired mug cake. Since there was no need for egg, and I used coconut milk, it happens to also be vegan! Share with others and please let me know if you give this a try!
Green smoothies are a trend of which I am a huge fan. In my kitchen, they will be sticking around. They provide an excellent way to achieve the recommended daily intake of fruits and veggies. The awesome thing about adding greens is that you cannot taste them. The flavor of fruit like bananas tend to overpower the smoothie with sweetness.
If you just can’t bring yourself to drink a smoothie that’s green or convince your children, add a small handful of berries to the blender. The smoothie will then take on a darker richer color and further mask the greens. Whatever you do, do not leave out your leafy greens. I love the salad like the next person, but to take in that amount of raw fruits and veggies is exhausting! Just think about with all of that chewing.
This green smoothie is full-bodied in flavor, creamy, and very thick. It’s one of my favorite ways to make a green smoothie. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Take a look at the video below for the recipe.
|Who doesn’t love pancakes? Usually, such a breakfast treat would be reserved for weekends when there is generally more time to cook, and a little leeway to indulge. I’ve long since wondered what mystery ingredients are in those “ready to pour” containers and have usually opted for a pre-made multi-grain mix or in most cases, settled for cereal.The protein powder and egg whites make this breakfast a great way to get a head start on your protein intake and start your day right. I’ve tried many protein powders, and I can always detect them in my smoothies. With this recipe, the protein powder goes unnoticed. I love this delicious pancake alternative because it is the perfect combination of naughty and nice; the high protein content makes it nutritious, yet the fact that it’s pancakes makes me feel like I’m actually getting away with something! The deep color of the pancakes reflects well the flavor o blueberries, blackberries and raspberries that have been blended well into the batter.I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did! Enjoy!Serves: 1
