Recipes

All of my recipes are created to be quick, healthy, delicious and vegan (meaning they use no animal foods).

I also sometimes share recipes from other people, and I am always conscious of choosing a recipe that is as healthy and vegan as I would make myself.

If you like recipes, you should pick up my free 3-day meal plan so that I can show you how to put recipes together into a balanced and nutritious eating plan.

Vegan London Fog aka Earl Grey Vanilla Latte

DIY Earl Grey latte, with almond milk and vanilla stevia = Vegan London Fog

You can make a rich, creamy latte at home so easily! This one has become pretty much a morning routine, after I discovered recently that I really like Earl Grey tea.

I often find in coffee shops, they only have soy milk as an option and I prefer almond. There are so many choices out there for non-dairy milks that it can become an experiment to find your favorite!

They also sometimes put sweeteners in without asking me, like in a chai latte where the chai comes pre-sweetened. A London Fog is usually made with sweetened vanilla syrup.

Making it myself, I can get exactly what I want - plus save money. It's become somewhat of a morning routine for me, after my smoothie which includes 5 foods that I eat every day.

Tropical Sangria Recipe *Video

Refreshing & tasty tropical sangria recipe for girls' night <3

This is a really refreshing and tasty mix of tropical flavors, sparkling water and white wine - perfect for girls' night!

I find that a lot of people think that I never drink alcohol, but I do. I don't drink very often, and when I do, I don't drink much. I also like to have nice light options, like this tropical sangria.

Chocolate Christmas Cookie Recipe *Video

Chocolate Christmas cookie recipe - healthy + vegan + cookie-monster-approved <3

These are an easy and healthy option for a vegan Christmas cookie. I had to make them chocolate, because everything should be chocolate at Christmas, right?

They're kind of a cross between shortbread and peanut butter cookies because I used almond butter instead of butter or coconut oil. If you want a more traditional shortbread cookie, coconut oil makes the perfect texture, but I wanted to make an oil-free version with almond butter.

I used teff flour, but you can easily replace that with any other gluten-free flour. A nut-based one would be perfect, like almond meal or just additional coconut flour.

Gingerbread Square Recipe + Live Q&A + Giveaway!

Sweet Eats For All! Gluten-free vegan baking with Allyson Kramer

Sweetened by banana, blackstrap molasses, and agave, this healthy gingerbread from Allyson Kramer tastes just as rich and spicy as the traditional version.

You may know Allyson from such recipes as her chocolate squash custard, or drenched pad thai salad, or from previous live hangouts about gluten-free cooking and her history with celiac disease.

This recipe comes from Allyson's newest cookbook, Sweet Eats For All, available now on Amazon - would make a lovely Christmas gift, I think. You can also enter to win a free copy below!

I am thrilled to be hosting Allyson for a live q&a session, and will be getting lots of answers about gluten-free vegan baking techniques for you! That's her gorgeous photo up there, too, both the book cover and the gingerbread squares on the right.
