2-Ingredient Cashew Milk

I super love nut milk and ever since I’ve started making my own milk at home, I’ve never looked back.  More than its health benefits, using nut milk has been a preference of mine due to its versatility and flavor as well. Almond milk has gained so much popularity these days but I still prefer my cashew milk over it for two reasons. Cashew milk is: CREAMIER – it is creamier in taste and texture than almond milk. So that makes it perfect for smoothies like my peach carrot cake smoothie, soups, overnight oats, and other dishes like my vegan …

Peach-Carrot Cake Smoothie

  If you know me too well, you will realize that I’m a smoothie kinda’ gal. I start my morning everyday with a nutrient-dense smoothie for two reasons. First because it’s quick and easy which is a total time-saver for a busy mom like you and me. Second, having liquid meals at the start of the day is much gentler to our gut so blending my veggies and superfoods into one glass is the perfect way to get all the nutrients without the bloating. It’s the first time for me to make this PEACH-CARROT CAKE SMOOTHIE combo and I’m biting …

Beets Strawberry Smoothie

This BEETS & STRAWBERRY SMOOTHIE is one of my favorites since it is packed with a flavorful punch.  It has a very rich, creamy texture that will leave you wanting for more. Beets is gaining popularity due to its many health benefits.   One of which is helping boost weight loss because of its detoxifying ability with its zero fat and high fiber content.  It can also help boost strength, improve digestive health, lower blood pressure, and even enhance brain health. I usually buy the pre-packed and pre-cooked beets that are vacuum-sealed in the supermarket.  This doesn’t have any added sugars …

My 2-Ingredient Cashew Milk

I have been so obsessed with nut milk these days and finally brought myself to making my own at home.   I know… I know…you might say it’s too cumbersome.  But trust me, this HOMEMADE CASHEW MILK is as easy as 1-2-3.  Not only are you assured that it is 100% made of nuts, and free from any other artificial ingredients you can hardly pronounce, but it really tastes so much better! I have made almond milk as well, and the process isn’t that different.  But when I tried to make the cashew milk, I’m hooked!  It’s much creamier than …

Berries and Cauliflower Smoothie Bowl

Cauliflower in smoothies, for real? YES!!!  I have been reading rave reviews about adding this humble vegetable into smoothies for a creamier and richer texture and taste.  And boy was I impressed with this BERRIES AND CAULIFLOWER SMOOTHIE BOWL!  You actually won’t taste the cauliflower in it.  Well, maybe a little but it’s very subtle.   Adding berries into the mix gives it the sweetness you’ll need plus the loads of antioxidants of course! I steamed one head of cauliflower (cut into florets first), then froze it in ziploc bags.   I used the pre-packed mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries) …

Banana Strawberry Lemon Smoothie

If you were a smoothie, what combo would you be?  I would choose to be as classic as a banana, as sweet as strawberry, and as zesty as a lemon.   This BANANA STRAWBERRY LEMON SMOOTHIE is tangy, mildly sweet, and just oh-so-dreamylicious!   A tip to get that frothy, rich texture is to freeze the bananas and strawberries.   You can also add your favorite scoop of protein powder to make it even more filling.  I can drink this everyday! WHAT YOU’LL NEED: 1 cup unsweetened almond milk 1 frozen banana 5-6 frozen strawberries zest of 1 lemon 1 …
