Classic Green Smoothie

Ok I know there are approximately a bazillion “Green Smoothie” recipes on the internet and in no way am I bashing them BUT sometimes you just need a few simple ingredients to make you feel great and satisfy your hunger. So here is an uncomplicated solution to that!

Vanilla Elderflower Coconut Ice Cream

This ice cream recipe doesn’t require an ice cream maker just an electric mixer. It’s just the right touch of sweet and oh so creamy thanks to the St. Germain preventing it from freezing into an icy mess! It’s dairy free, refined sugar free ice cream at command!

Pavlova

Pavlova is a type of meringue cake layered with whipped cream and topped with fresh fruit. This version is paleo as it doesn’t include any refined sugar or dairy. Don’t worry, it doesn’t feel like you’re missing out on anything!

Cantaloupe Salad

This salad is so quick and easy to whip up and so versatile. Bring to a summer bbq, bridal brunch, baby shower, on a picnic etc. I kept the ingredients simple but be sure to use fresh mint and a ripe cantaloupe to get the most flavor.

Bonus is that this salad has anti-inflammatory properties. We could all use a little more of that!

Watermelon Poke

This vegan Poke Bowl is so nutritious and delicious! It takes only about 30-45 minutes from start to finish and is such a refreshing meal as the weather starts to warm up. Prep extra to have for dinner one night and then eat the leftovers for lunch the next day.

Blackened Salmon With Mango Salsa

The mango salsa is a nice balance to the spicy blackened seasoning. If you don’t like spice- feel free to make a mild version with less cayenne or skip the serrano peppers in the salsa. And if you REALLY don’t like spice skip the blackening seasoning all together and simplify it by simply sprinkling generously with salt and pepper. Either way, I hope you enjoy!

Watermelon Mint Slushy

Just because the recipe is for a mocktail doesn’t mean it has to be alcohol free. Feel free to add your liquor of choice. I personally think a gin would taste great for those who aren’t sensitive to those grains.

Lavender Rosemary Cake

This cake can be adapted really easily. For a completely dairy free frosting you can sub the frosting for coconut whipped cream. Or if you need an egg free version- simply make flax “eggs” and bake for just a little bit longer (10-15 min.)
