Vegan Iced Latte

There are many ways to start a day but one of my daughter’s favorites happens to be a Vegan Iced Latte. It’s one of the simplest recipes you’ll find on my site and not too bad on the calories or cost either. Come to think of it, that makes it one of my favorite ways to start the day too!

It’s National Doughnut Day and that’s not a day too soon for these Caramel-Glazed Baked Donuts adorned with melted dark chocolate. If that’s not a way to celebrate this national day of doughnuts, I don’t know what is.

Frozen Strawberry Bites by Namely Marly

Frozen Strawberry Bites

I had so much fun making Frozen Banana Bites (inspired by my lovely mother-in-law, Diane) and because I live by the motto, “more is better” I decided to try this concept of freezing chocolate around chunks of fruit. We need to get our fruit in each day, right? A bit of fruit covered in dark chocolate and frozen so there’s a crisp crunch when you bite into it. It’s so fulfilling, you’ll find yourself satisfied with just one. Well, make that two because you know what I say? More is better!

Banana slices dipped in chocolate are a perfect vegan treat!

Frozen Banana Bites

I’ve been mulling over a new saying lately, similar to “form over function” but this one is “health over flavor.” That’s because I realize most of my days I’m looking for balance between these two seemingly opposing words. Can we have a little of both? These Frozen Banana Bites are proof that we can!
