Fauxgurt, Oat, and Tropical Fruit Parfait

By Ashley | Breakfast , Snack

I want my first recipe post this spring to be fun, fruity, and colorful so I grabbed some gorgeous fresh fruit and put the Vitamix to work! Yogurt. It’s a breakfast staple for many of us. In fact, I started most days with a bowl of Greek yogurt for several years. It’s protein-packed, probiotic filled, sweet, and pairs well with fruit, granola, etc., so I understand the allure. But let’s talk dairy for a second. […]

Creamy Dreamy Green Smoothie

By Ashley | Breakfast , Recipes , Smoothie , Snack

This drink is seriously my go-to  breakfast or lunch energizer if my body is craving some extra greens. It tastes indulgent – the avocado, frozen banana and ice give it a thick creamy consistency. Also, the banana adds just enough sweetness to prevent it from tasting too green. If you are a fan of coconut milk or want to avoid nuts, it’s a great substitute for the almond milk. Sometimes I will add nut butter […]
