Good thing bananas come in a bunch. You’ll be happy you have a few on hand after trying this quick, nutritious pudding! Simply blend a banana with a cup of coconut milk, a scoop of chia seeds and some cinnamon, chill for about an hour, and you’ve got the perfect single-serving dessert–sweet, creamy and (bonus!) packed with potassium, protein and omega-3s.

Living an egg-free lifestyle? Whether you’re vegan, allergic or just prefer not to eat eggs, you can still bake and cook all of your favorite recipes. The secret? Two tiny treasures you may already have on hand: flax seeds and chia seeds. Here are three easy-to-follow recipes to turn these versatile superfoods into instant egg replacers.
Before peeling back the foil seal on another tiny plastic tub of pudding, give this recipe a try. This creamy, chocolaty dessert is not only divine, it’s packed with superfood nutrition from organic cocoa, raw cacao nibs and chia seeds. A whirl in the blender and a quick chill in the fridge are all it takes to transform five simple ingredients into a dessert that’s always OK to splurge on!
Sunshine, a sandy beach, waves crashing, seagulls squealing—what’s missing from this perfect picture? A sweet, tropical drink, of course! Escape to your own little tropical paradise, no matter where you are, with a creamy, frosty Coconutty Shake. It’s made with nutty non-dairy milk, a heaping helping of coconut butter and cacao nibs for a touch of chocolaty taste. Make one today and let your worries melt away!
Pancakes are a special Saturday or Sunday morning treat for families too busy to fuss with “homemade” on hectic weekday mornings. This recipe lets you enjoy a stack without the junk that fills frozen or “quick mix” varieties—but that’s not all. These Flax Jacks were created especially for my diabetic dad, Mac, who desperately missed the amazing taste of many of his favorite foods when they became off limits after his quadruple bypass surgery in 2010.
Take toast to a new level, dip fruit to your heart’s content! With this protein-packed, chunky nut spread, snacking isn’t just a way to stave off hunger, it’s fuel to keep you moving full speed ahead through your day. The secret is two scoops of vegan, non-soy protein powder blended into already-protein-rich nut butter. Use almond, cashew, peanut—whichever nut butter you like best!
Craving something crunchy? Put down that bag of chips and make yourself one of these crispy, nutritious “cakes” instead. Homemade cashew cheese is spread over a brown rice cake, then topped with rich sundried tomatoes, tasty capers and a sprinkling of hemp seeds. A quick toast in the oven and you’ve got a satisfying snack that’s actually good for you!
