Grilled Peaches

Craving something sweet? Try grilled peaches!

All you have to do is cut the peaches in half, sprinkle with cinnamon, and drizzle with honey.  Grill on each side for about 5 minutes and you have yourself a nutritious dessert! The honey caramelizes, giving a nice boost of flavor!  I promise they taste better than they look 🙂

Black Bean Brownies

I’ve made Chickpea Blondies before, so of course I just had to try using black beans! I know it sounds weird, but you would never know that these have black beans in them. These are a more healthy spin on your typical brownies! They are vegan and gluten free.  Did I mention they are DELICIOUS?!

I give you the more nutritious Black Bean Brownie:


Nutritional Content Per Brownie(=1/9 of 8×8 pan):

  • Calories: 110
  • Fat: 5g
  • Carbs: 12g
  • Fiber: 3g
  • Protein: 3g (Will be more if you use Peanut Butter)

What you need:
■ 1 1/2 cups Organic Black Beans, drained and rinsed thoroughly
■ 2 tbsp Raw Cacao Powder
■ 1/2 cup Steel-cut or Quick Oats (or Gluten-free oats)
■ 1/4 tsp Salt

Healthy Milkshake…Yum!

2 Frozen Bananas

3/4- 1 Cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk

1-2 T. Vanilla Extract

2 T. Raw Cacao Powder

Place all ingredients in blender and blend and serve!

So I’ve been experimenting lately trying to create a healthy version of a milkshake for the summertime and am pleasantly surprised by these results!  I blended in a few ice cubes to this one to make it a tad bit colder.  Also optional is 2 Tbs. natural peanut butter, or you can leave out the cacao and add more vanilla if you prefer a more vanilla flavored milkshake!  You can also add vanilla Stevia in liquid form if you want it to be more sweet but I think it’s perfect like this! Hope everyone is having a fabulous summer!

P.S This milkshake only has about 250 calories, 4 grams of fat, and the best part is.. NO ADDED SUGAR (The only sugar this has is in the bananas)! So you can drink the whole thing without one ounce of guilt! Enjoy!   Mucho love!

Chickpea Blondies

Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile..school has had me BUSY BUSY! Every now and then we should all reward ourselves with a sweet treat…and why not something that is somewhat a healthy one! This dessert recipe is yummy and guess what the main ingredient is…Garbanzo beans!  These basically taste like Reese’s brownies and yes..they’re VEGAN AND Gluten-Free!


  • 1.5 cups pre-soaked garbanzo beans OR 1 can garbanzo beans, drained
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal/ ground flaxseed
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup Carob chips (You can always add more if you’re a chocoholic) If you are not vegan, you can use milk chocolate chips or even dark chocolate chips

*Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place all ingredients except carob chips into food processor and blend until mixed thoroughly. Mix in carob chips with a spoon. Bake in 8 x 8 pan for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned on top. (You want to under-cook these as they harden when cooled! (and in my opinion..the gooier, the better!)

Healthy Dessert Recipe: “Chocolatey Chews”

This recipe is similar to the Superfood energy bar recipe, but this one is only 3 ingredients so it’s QUICK AND EASY!

What you need:

  • 1 1/2-2  cups raw cashews
  • 12 organic Medjool dates
  • 2 Tbsp. Raw cacao powder (can add more to make it more chocolatey)

First, blend cashews into a fine powder, then add dates and cacao powder. Blend until thoroughly  mixed and everything is sticking together nicely! Roll into balls and serve! Or you can put them in the refrigerator depending on your preference! For all of you coconut-aholics out there, you can also add 1 cup coconut to this recipe! Who would’ve thought chocolate and healthy could be in the same sentence?! Enjoy!
