A little sorbet, and a little smoothie. So simple, so quick, and so tasty! Strawberry sorbet smoothie with hemp! Very satisfying on a hot day especially for children. (Strawberries not recommended for under one year old).
There’s nothing quite like a nice chewy shiitake! No, it’s not meat: it’s better than meat! It’s a mushroom! Big juicy shiitakes perform the role of “bacon” in these delicious BLT avocado wraps.
The nori is a brilliant and unexpected combo with the BLT flavor. The combination of nori with the kind fo tex-mex flavor of the BLT makes for a delicious kind of fusion. You can also substitute collard greens for nori, if you prefer a more leafy wrap!

Cheesecake is kind of weird, isn’t it? I mean, it’s cake, made from cheese. What’s up with that?
Raw cheesecake is less weird, because there’s no cheese! Super delicious, not too sweet, and totally nutritious. This raw vegan lime cheesecake is made from hemp seeds, nuts, lime and coconut. Pure and delicious!
Don’t be fooled by the name of this smoothie! Mango and peach might be the two central ingredients, but there’s a lot more going on here than just those two wonderful fruits! We’ve got bananas, we’ve got celery, we’ve got chia and coconut water. We’ve even got some turmeric.
And that’s just for the base layer! Some of the really fun stuff comes in on the next layer. Here we’ve got our spirulina, our hemp seeds, and of course, our matcha powder. All these high-energy, protein and nutrient rich foods make this an excellent smoothie to enjoy after a good workout.
Of course, you should feel free to throw on any extras you might want. Blueberries and pomegranates make for a fine topping!
This cheeseless cheesecake is just about the prettiest cheesecake you’ve ever seen, even if it isn’t really a cheesecake. And with berry season upon us, there’s hardly a better time to whip up this delicious piece of edible art.
The raspberries and the blueberries mingle into the most wonderfully pink hue. Somehow, this cake tastes how it looks, too. The flavors blend perfectly into a smooth, rich sweetness with just a little bit of tang. You’re going to have to let the cheesecake sit for a while before adding the sauce, so be patient! It’s the hardest part.
What better way to start the day than spiced carrot and apple breakfast bars! It’s like a cookie, but it’s a nutritious breakfast! With some fresh orange juice or a killer smoothie, you’ll be in real fine shape.

This smoothie may be the smoothie to end all smoothies, but that’s not why it’s called the Omega Smoothie! With delicious and nutritious chia and hemp seeds, this divine concoction will provide you with all sorts of essential fatty acids, not to mention antioxidants, fiber, protein, and a wide variety of nutrients and minerals. And you’ll need all these healthful nutrients as we head into the summer months of long days and fun nights.
Chia is an awesome little seed. They say they make good pets. I’m not so sure about that, but they do add a lovely gel-like thickness to recipes. Great in smoothies, these little things absorb liquid super fast and will expand to several times their original size. As a source of Omega-3s, they’ve got the advantage over flax seeds of not having to be ground up to be digested.
The rest of the Omega Smoothie ingredients need no introduction! Bananas are the all-stars of the smoothie world, and anything with fresh coconut water is bound to be energizing and refreshing. The dates add a bit of sweetness the way only dates can, and cinnamon and nutmeg round it all off with a subtle hint of spice.
The Omega Smoothie makes for a fine day at the beach. Or, if you don’t have a beach near you, a great way to visualize yourself on one anyways!
There’s something special about cabbage. It’s just so much better than it seems like it should be. The deep purplish hue of red cabbage makes it great not only for adding a bit of color to your dishes, it also helps you get a well-rounded assortment of nutrients. And they’re just so cute!
No dish better showcases this lovely vegetable than coleslaw, and this Moroccan Mint Red Cabbage Slaw is the envy of all others. A hint of sweetness, a bit of zest, and a taste of spice, this dish really does have it all. A great lunchtime meal with nuts and hemp seeds for protein, as well as lemon, mint, cinnamon and a bit of curry powder to invigorate your senses. There’s a lot of goodness your body needs, and not much of anything it doesn’t!
The dressing is particularly nice. Cinnamon is an eccentric spice, and pairing it with maple syrup really accentuates the ambiguous character of this somehow sweet and savory bark. It would be interesting to see what other recipes this dressing could go with, though it’s hard to imagine it going better with anything than it does with this tasty Red Cabbage Slaw!
