Thick and creamy like a milkshake, this Banana Cherry Smoothie is super satisfying and refreshing at any time of day! It has the perfect amount of sweetness from the banana and apple juice, the perfect amount of creaminess from the Sunbutter and greek yogurt, AND the perfect amount of rich flavor from the dark cherries. It only takes a few minutes to throw together!
Overnight Oats without the “Overnight” – This Instant Overnight Oats Base is the perfect quick and easy foundation for all of your favorite overnight oats flavors. It’s ready to utilize in only 1 hour!
If you were to cross traditional overnight oats with a chia pudding, the result would be these tasty chilled oats; They’re more creamy and less chewy due to the quantities of yogurt and chia seeds, though the key feature is the use of Quick Oats instead of Old Fashioned Rolled Oats. They absorb liquid much more quickly, readying them for your favorite toppings and mix-ins right away!
If you’ve never done overnight oats before, here are a few flavor ideas:
These Crispy Potato Wedges are such a quick and easy side to have on hand and always a crowd pleaser. They pair wonderfully with meaty meals such as steak, chicken, or battered fish, but also happen to be vegan and taste great alongside veggie burgers, veggie sandwiches, or chili too. You only need 4 ingredients!
Servings: Approx. 1 Potato Per Person, Or Quantity Of Choice!
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Preheat the oven to 400°
After cleaning, chop each potato into about 8 wedges
Lightly coat the wedges with olive oil
Add sea salt and black pepper to taste
Bake for 30-40 minutes depending on how crispy you like them
[Optional – You can raise the oven temperature slightly or broil in the last couple minutes for extra crispness if you like!]
Reminiscent of a classic banana and peanut butter combo, this Banana Peach Sunbutter Smoothie is thick and creamy like a milkshake! The addition of the peaches gives it a bit of extra sweetness and bulk but does not compromise the flavor at all. The sweetness of the fruit balances perfectly with the “nutty” flavor of the Sunbutter in this super filling, nutrient-dense, quick and easy meal.
If somehow you’ve never enjoyed oats before, these Chocolate Chip Banana Protein Oats will convert you after one bite! They’re the perfect combination of dessert-y yet nutrient-dense. They’re also thick and creamy, have loads of added texture from the toppings, and can be whipped up in under 5 minutes!
On hot summer days, nothing hits the spot like a delicious lineup of icy drinks and snacks to keep yourself cool. These refreshing and creamy Coconut Lime Ice Pops by my husband are the perfect treat to beat the heat! The ingredients take only moments to whisk together.
(These pops are not overly sweet as a personal preference, but could be very easily adjusted to have more sweetness if desired!)
Falling in between a lighter milkshake and a decadent smoothie, this sweet treat only requires 4 ingredients and makes for such a satisfying snack on a hot summer day! It’s thick and creamy while frozen and icy at the same time, all while packing a nutritional punch with lots of vitamins, protein, and fiber. (For additional creaminess, feel free to substitute a higher fat greek yogurt if that’s your preference!)
Perfect for cozy mornings, an afternoon pick-me-up, or a post-dinner treat, these Earl Grey lattes only require 4 ingredients and take a few short minutes to make! Simple and delicious, my husband is the expert when it comes to whipping these up in our house!
A few notes:
We personally used decaf so that we could enjoy them later in the evening, but traditional caffeinated tea will work wonderfully as well!
The quantities and sweetness are fully in your control depending on how you prefer your tea.
Lastly, if you don’t have any tools on hand to froth the milk, it is still very enjoyable when skipping this step!
