Almond milk is a great non dairy alternative to cow milk. However a lot of store brands contain many fillers and added ingredients that are not necessary. This recipe is simple, easy and makes creamy and delicious almond milk. A nut bag is very helpful to get the most liquid from your mix, and can be purchased online for a few dollars. You can use the leftover pulp in smoothies, homemade granola bars, or baked goods.
Caramel is SOOO good...and it's almost always just high fructose corn syrup if you are having it out of the house, along with some dye to make it caramel colored. Thanks, but not thanks. We've developed a rich caramel dipping sauce using the sweetness of dates long with vanilla extract, and some added healthy fat from coconut oil, to make a dip that will not only be a crowd pleaser, but is also good for you! Sliced pears would also taste fantastic with this dip, too!
This recipe came in from our favorite Nutritionista Mo, so you know it is a winner. Simple to make, full of richness and good on just about everything!
Raise your hand if you want cookies for breakfast! Yep, that’s what we thought. These cookies can technically be eaten any time of day, but we figure why not with a big cup of coffee when the sun comes up? They’re loaded with fiber, omegas, and antioxidants. Adding a bowl of berries to this breakfast will take you to Nutrient Superstar status! Cookies can be stored for 4-5 days in an airtight container or frozen for up to 3 months.

This is a fan favorite and so easy to make. The recipe came from our resident Nutritionista Monique Bogni. Impress any guest with these copy cat chocolate caramels. Add in a pecan or walnut to make them like turtles. Full of real ingredients you can pronounce.
These are simple to make power balls great for on the go people. Simple grab one, pop it in your mouth and have the perfect mix of carbs, fat and fiber for any task you have to tackle. Kids also love these because of the natural sweetness from the dates. Feel free to get creative with spices and other dried fruit.
Repeat after us, fat is GOOD. We mean it! Your body absolutely needs fat. Good fat gives your body energy, supports cell growth (hello, muscles!), helps produce hormones, curb cravings, helps insulate our organs and so much more. Omega 3 healthy fats are found in almonds and almond butter. Dates are a sweet natural snack and are high in fiber, minerals, and will help give a quick energy boost! And if that's not enough, we like to sprinkle these with some cacao nibs - if you have them on hand - for a nice crunch and to give a nice antioxidant boost! All that from this simple snack that comes together in less than 60 seconds.
