Paleo Chocolate Raspberry Naked Cake with Raspberry Filling

When it comes to baking, I aim to please. So when my mother asked me to make a chocolate raspberry cake for Christmas this year, I was determined to make the best chocolate raspberry cake she had ever seen. At first, I was a bit resistant to the idea of a chocolate raspberry cake for Christmas, but I went for it. This feels more like a Valentine’s Day kinda cake to me, but it turned out so delicious that I really couldn’t complain. I was a bit nervous about this one, to be honest, because it was going to be…

Warm Vanilla Cauliflower Collagen Pudding (Sugar-Free, Paleo)

Here I am again with another “weird” “dessert” recipe. I put those words in quotes because to me it’s not weird, but I know other people think my food combinations are strange. That’s okay – I embrace it. I sort of pride myself on that. Also, I consider this a dessert recipe, because my taste buds respond to this like a dessert. As I’ve mentioned before, being sugar-free for almost a year really does change your taste buds. It only takes a little bit of natural sweetness for something to taste like a full-on dessert to me, and I know many of…

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…

Sugar-Free Apple Pie Gut-Healing Gummies (Paleo / Keto)

Now that the holidays are over, I think it’s time to show our guts some extra love – don’t ya think? These cute little gummies are my most recent addiction for about a million reasons, including their gut-healing properties. Not only are they incredibly simple to pull together, but they’re so delicious and have a ton of health benefits, too! We all know I’m a huge fan of Vital Proteins, and people always ask me what to do with Vital Proteins Gelatin! There are so many different things you can do with gelatin, but one of the simplest is to make…

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…
