Hi Friends!

I’m just loving that Spring is here!  Aren’t you?

I’m sitting at my local coffee shop, sipping on a dairy-free matcha latte with the windows wide open.  I look across the street and see the patios opened up and people soaking up the sun. Everything is green and blooming. Ahhhhhh….

IMG_9384

Making my own nut butters brings me great enjoyment. Think about it – a jar of almond butter is sooo expensive.  When I walk through my natural foods store, I’m always looking for a sale since these decadent-type butters are in such small jars and they barely last a couple of weeks.

Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Holy crap these muffins are sooo good!

Don’t like zucchini?  I promise you that you won’t even notice that they are in the muffin.  I swear, I promise!

Sometimes, with super healthy muffins, they can be dry or heavy but not these babies.  These muffins are moist, not too sweet and full of healthy goodness – zucchini! The zucchini is what makes these muffins so moist.  Just be sure that you squeeze as much water out of them so that they cook properly.

Decadent Superfood Hot Chocolate – dairy free // vegan

Decadant Superfood Hot Choc 2

I love coffee.  I really, REALLY do.  Now, I’m not a 2-3 cup a day coffee drinker but I have one cup of joe a day. And, if you live in West Vancouver like I do, you’ll find me on the weekends at a local coffee shop with my honey, sipping away working on this website.

Salted Caramel Bowl

So, have you tried So Delicious’s Cashew Salted Caramel non-dairy ice cream yet? It’s is amazing. It’s sweet, salty and nutty and without dairy!
