Caffeine-Free Dirty Coconut Chai Latte

This is my last recipe of 2017, and I want to leave you with a cozy one! After a Thanksgiving and early December filled with 85 degree weather, it is FINALLY getting chilly here in Los Angeles. I expected to come back from the Bay Area after Christmas and pull out my tank tops, shorts, and sunscreen, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised by my need for fuzzy socks and a heavy North Face! When it gets a little chilly out, there is nothing I love more than curling up on the couch with a warm mug of SOMETHING. Preferably alongside…

Vegan / Paleo Yuletide Nog

Can you tell I’m kind of addicted to eggnog? It’s SO GOOD. I promise, though, this is the last eggnog-related recipe. For this year, at least! I’ve already posted a recipe for a Classic Paleo Eggnog and an Eggnog Spice Cake, but I didn’t want to leave out anyone who doesn’t eat eggs! Especially after finding out that so many people have never even tried eggnog, partially because it contains eggs. This is the perfect alternative! If you’re curious about eggnog but don’t want to deal with eggs for whatever reason, then this is for you. Let me explain how…

Sugar-Free Lemon Bar Smoothie (Paleo / Vegan / Keto)

Who doesn’t love a good lemon bar?! Well, truth is… Not always me. Let me be clear. I love all things lemon. Lemon is one of my favorite flavors, and always has been. Because of that, I always like the idea of a lemon bar. That citrusy bite is extra refreshing and reminds me of summertime. What I don’t like about traditional lemon bars, though, is the bread-y bottom. I’ve talked about this before when it comes to pies. I’m not really a pie person, because I don’t like the crust. I have the same problem with lemon bars. The bottom crust is always just…

Healthy, Rich Spiced Hot Chocolate (Paleo / Vegan / GF)

Is it really Christmas without hot chocolate? I don’t think so. Hot chocolate is an absolute staple during the holiday season. Thinking about all of the pre-made hot chocolate packets I used to guzzle down year after year for most of my life makes my stomach flip. I don’t even know what’s in those packets, but I know it’s not good. Definitely not real food. Probably gave me gut bugs. Hot chocolate tastes best when it’s healthy. I promise. Aaaaand this recipe has a few little twists, because you know I couldn’t just post about your average hot chocolate. First of all,…

Creamy Coconut Green Beauty Smoothie (Paleo)

We all know that my obsession with green smoothies is a little too real. If you watch my Instagram or Snapchat stories, you know I drink a green smoothie every single day. Usually as my afternoon snack. When made properly, green smoothies are powerhouses when it comes to health benefits. Unfortunately, most people make a high-sugar, fruit-filled smoothie, add in some spinach to make it green, and call it a day. That is not my idea of a healthy green smoothie. I’ve had this recipe on repeat for weeks now, and I seriously can’t get enough. You guys have all been asking for the recipe, so I…
