I found the perfect nondairy yogurt the other day, made from cashew milk. I bought a tub of this Forager plain yogurt, made from cashew nuts, and easily blended up things like yogurt sauces, salad dressings, and this mango lassi. It is so versatile and easy to sub in anything that calls for plain yogurt. This mango lassi is refreshing on a warm day, with spicy Indian food, or as a snack. Don’t forget the cardamom – it adds character… Read more »

My family LOVES this shake – it really just tastes like a chocolate milkshake, and you wouldn’t even think that it’s good for you!

I love lots of cinnamon in this milkshake,… Read more »

I had one bite and I gagged (sorry, Dad, it wasn’t you, it was that ready-made packet and flavor!). Ever since then, I’ve always felt “meh” about oatmeal, and even though I can stomach it now, it’s not anything really special. I just eat the… Read more »

I’ve been making chia seed refreshers and puddings for awhile now, so wanted to post this recipe for y’all. It’s stupid easy, and requires little more than some bicep strength in one arm, to shake the mason jar. You don’t even need a whisk! Chia seeds are loaded with heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and minerals. About two tablespoons of chia seeds will give you 10 grams of fiber – definitely easy to meet your fiber quota! This pudding is… Read more »
