Green Pina Colada Smoothie

DSC_0869

It’s almost summer and that means daily smoothies for breakfast at my house. This year  Cheryl is having them too and it’s a painless way to get more greens in her everyday! Cheryl tends to get hungry fast after a smoothie breakfast so I like to add some protein powder, avocado or oatmeal to hers. […]

Red Curry Coconut Peanut Butter

Red Curry Coconut Peanut Butter

I think I’m becoming a bit obsessed with nut butter. Once I made turtle butter I haven’t been able to turn back. This time I wanted to make a savory version. Cheryl brought some peanuts home and I promptly stole some of them to make this Red Curry Coconut Peanut Butter. The name could be […]

Maple Coconut Macaroons featuring Quinoa Flour!

Maple Coconut Macaroons with Quinoa Flour

I love macaroons and these are made with quinoa flour giving them a little boost in the nutrition department. They also happen to be gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, egg-free, and nut-free making them fit in almost every diet. These macaroons get a flavor boost from some cream skimmed off the top of a can of full-fat […]

Pumpkin Coconut Caramel Sauce

  Happy December! It’s gotten really chilly here in North Carolina and even though it’s warming up during the day it makes me want to snuggle up in bed a little longer. Plus I can’t get enough hot tea or coffee. Even Max, one of our dogs, is sneaking closer and closer to the fireplace […]

Date Sweetened Caramel Coconut Pancakes

  These dessert-like pancakes have a secret weapon in the batter – white beans! The beans add extra fiber, protein and all keeps them moist without very much (or even no) oil. Even better the beans do not effect the flavor at all! I got the idea when I was writing The Great Vegan Bean Book last […]

Lychee Rosewater Pina Colada

This has been one of those weeks when a cocktail seems like the right thing to make once  I finally get home. Maybe it’s heat coming back or perhaps it’s been too long since I took my last vacation. Since I still have book three to finish up, I can’t just get in my car […]

Baked Lemon Donuts with Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting

noFeatured

These were my second batch of donuts and they are bursting with lemony goodness. The lemon extract has less of a bite than plain lemon juice, so I like using the two together. The lemon cream cheese frosting adds more sweetness but also a bit of richness to the bright flavor of the lemon donut. You […]
