Double Chocolate Baked Donuts

Baking vegan donuts at home is always a treat, especially these delectable double chocolate baked donuts. These are so good topped with a simple sugar glaze, powdered sugar dusting, or even a thick vegan buttercream chocolate icing, like the one included in the recipe. Use colored sprinkles with the glaze or the icing to color […]

Vegan Hot Cocoa Mix

This vegan hot cocoa mix is one of the reasons I love switching from processed store bought foods to homemade versions. For your kids or yourself, it’s nice to know exactly what ingredients go into something, to choose those ingredients yourself, and to feel secure that your family isn’t eating anything unhealthy.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

This chocolate peanut butter smoothie veers so far from my normal fruit smoothies that it almost registers for me as a milk shake. But, I wanted to do something sweet and decadent for Halloween. We’re avoiding candy this year – totally – and giving ourselves treats in healthier ways. This recipe uses frozen bananas, something […]
