Say hello to thick, chocolatey, chia pudding heaven! Yeahhhh, baby. Ever since I first read Cookie and Kate’s chia pudding recipe, I knew it was time for me to jump on the chia pudding trend. As usual, I’m late. They’ve been popular in the food/health world for quite a while, and since it’s such an easy and delicious recipe to make, I’m kind of surprised that I’m only now sharing this chocolate chia pudding recipe on the blog!
Thing is, I know most people out there enjoy simple, easy recipes that can be made in a flash. This chocolate chia pudding is made directly in a mason jar, so you can prepare the pudding, chill it in the fridge and let it do it’s chia magic, then take it out the next morning and add toppings! Seriously, when they say “under 5 minutes” I literally mean under 5 minutes. And if it’s a lazy Sunday morning, treat yourself by pouring the pudding into a bowl and topping it (so #fancy and #instagrammable).
You guys… this is by far one of the most genius recipes I’ve come up with. Just imagine: key lime pie, crunchy granola, and a sweet, fluffy muffin. That’s basically what these coconut lime granola muffins are: a key-lime pie, transformed into muffin form, topped with crunchy coconut granola and packed with summery, citrusy flavors.Best part? They’re health-ified and gluten free.
They can be a quick, grab-and-go breakfast, afternoon snack, or even dessert! Hey, I’d even eat them for dinner. Not kidding, these are that good.
Oh! And I’m bringing back the good ol’ recipe videos (woo-hoo!) I’m really really trying to be consistent with these, seriously. Even though I haven’t even attempted to make another one since my carrot cake bread post back in April, one of my goals this summer was to make more videos. Summer’s over half way over and this is the first one I’ve made😂 It’s all about the baby steps, I guess. Enjoy!
Happy Easter Sunday, y’all! Aside from the fact that it started drizzling right after I got all of the food set up, I really hope y’all are having a wonderful day. I hope you’re spending this Sunday with your family and remembering what Easter is truly about, and not just decorating Easter eggs and posting about it on social media. Planning events is pretty challenging, especially Easter festivities. That’s why today I’m sharing the steps I took in the tedious preparations of putting together a successful Sunday brunch! Enjoy!
First of all, let me just say that I’m not the biggest fan of nutella. Yes, I’m serious. To me, the spread is overly sweet and processed, and makes me sick to my stomach. In fact, my friends look at me like I’m mental when I say I don’t like it! However, I was scrolling through Pinterest when I saw a recipe for homemade healthy Nutella. Like most foods (cookies, cake, etc.), I wondered if Nutella would taste better if I made it myself. It’s pretty easy – a small matter of blending up some hazelnuts and flavoring it with some cocoa, of course, and some other ingredients, such as honey and vanilla. This healthy nutella I’ve created for y’all today is the perfect alternative if any of y’all are looking to eat healthier, but still miss the iconic hazelnut spread.
I just got back from my trip to Colorado this morning at about 2 o’clock, and I’m completely exhausted. Honestly, I’d get some rest, but I’m just too excited to share my colorado/new mexico food guide with y’all! We drove up to Colorado to go ski at Wolf Creek, and passed by New Mexico to and from Colorado. I got so many good photos and ate so much good food, so this is going to be a rather long post. I hope y’all will find this colorado/new mexico food guide helpful! xx
1. Whole Food’s (Santa Fe, NM)
On our way to Colorado, we stopped by Santa Fe (which is, by the way, the cutest little town ever!). We drove around until we stumbled upon this adorable adobe-style Whole Food’s Market! I was so hungry, and I was so happy that we’d found a place that felt kind of like home. I ordered a roasted asparagus tomato parmesan sandwich, with some roasted veggies and sweet potato fries! If any of y’all are planning to pass by Santa Fe, Whole Foods is always a great option.
