Morning Mocha Smoothie

Start your day off on the right foot with a DIY ‘frappuccino’ style sip. Tip: If your blender is not strong enough to handle chopping ice – try using frozen banana chunks in place of ice. Click here for the recipe.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ball

Perfect for (dare I say it): a sweet after-school snack (served with plenty of cut up fruit). Or, roll into small bite size balls for a sweet indulgence on-the-go.

Layered Tex Mex Dip

A perfect excuse to use up leftover grilled vegetables and/or meats. I often add finely chopped chicken and steak to this layered dip. If you’re not a fan of cilantro – use your favourite herb of choice: basil, parsley, oregano and even chopped fresh mint. Yum.

Smooth & Creamy Low-Cal-Fredo

You can make this delicious sauce in less time than it takes to boil the pasta. Serve with a mixed green salad for a: homemade supper in minutes! Tip: I like to add some finely grated lemon zest to the sauce and a handful of fresh torn basil.
