If you have heard of nice cream, you are going to love this! For those of you have not, nice cream is essentially a non-dairy ice cream made by freezing bananas and blending them. It is probably the best snack to enjoy on a hot day, after dinner for dessert, or even after a workout. Either way, the options are endless on when you can enjoy this cool blue nice cream bowl! To get this color, I added a natural butterfly pea supercolor powder by Suncore foods. They have tons of amazing powders that can give your foods a natural color boost with added nutrients and benefits. This bowl was topped with banana, dried apricots, and strawberries. Its super simple and a tasty snack to try!
Making your own granola bars is such a simple way you can add a snack or quick breakfast meal to your busy schedule. Instead of turning to the alternative “store bought” version, give these a go! In under 30 minutes, you will have an amazing healthy-wholesome bar for each day of the week, leaving you an extra bar to share with a friend.
1/2 cup dried cranberriesor 1/4 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a 9” square baking pan with parchment paper and lightly spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a bowl, add all ingredients together and mix until oats have soaked up some of the moisture from the maple syrup and butter, pour mixture into the lined pan.
Press granola down so that it is evenly spread across the pan.
Bake for 25 minutes until it is golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before removing bars and slicing. This way you can get nicely cut bars while they are semi-soft before they fully harden.
You can place the granola bars into the refrigerator and store in an airtight container for later or you can enjoy them on top of your yogurt or alone as a snack.
Chef’s tip: Make sure that you use parchment paper so that you can pull the baked outs out of the pan.

This staple side dish makes its way onto countless tables each day and every taco Tuesday night.

To prepare your avocado, slice lengthwise around the entire pit. Remove the halves and with the “butt” of the knife (the back end) smack the pit and make a twist motion with your hand once the knife is sturdy in the seed. Remove pit and toss.
Remove flesh from avocado and place into a bowl. Mash with a fork and add the spices, lime juice, onion and tomato.
Top with smoked paprika and serve.
Chef’s tip: Feel free to add diced onion, tomatoes, or cilantro if you’d like.
These may look like any ordinary nachos you may get- but I advise you they are not. This plant-based nacho cheese will shock you once you know it is not made with any dairy or cheese. These nachos are simple enough where all you need is some drizzled sauce and sliced jalapeño peppers. You can always add your toppings of choice if you would like guacamole, salsa, corn, etc. Enjoy!
