There’s something about the word “cookie” that makes us smile. Memories of childhood, perhaps, when our biggest worry focused on which cookie to choose from Grandma’s cookie jar? But we don’t always have time to bake in our busy adult lives — and we also don’t want to resort to grabbing processed products at the store. Here’s the solution: no-bake cookie bars. This wholesome recipe is beyond simple, and better yet, it can be customized with your favorite dried fruits and berries, nuts or nut butters.

Cookie dough is a dessert in itself. But for some reason we love it so much more when it’s anything but baked into a cookie. So let’s give the people what they want! In this delicious dessert, you’ll get a fully emerged hit of flavor from the combination of peanut butter, chocolate chips, coconut oil and a secretly healthy ingredient (shh – don’t spoil it for your biggest fans).

February is Heart Health Month, and what better way to celebrate than to try a new heart-healthy recipe? The American Heart Association recommends eating fish (preferably fatty fish, rich in omega-3 essential fatty acids) at least twice a week. Mahi is a tasty variety that not only supplies omega-3s but also serves as a good source of lean protein–and it’s low in saturated fat. Enjoy it with a simple citrus marinade loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants for a super healthy meal. Your heart will thank you!
Life is like a bowl of…strawberry gelato! Take a break from the busy life to enjoy a sweet, chilly treat made from fresh berries. Pretty-pink in color and pleasing to any palate, it combines real pureed fruit with a swirl of coconut oil, a hint of raw honey and a secret healthy ingredient. Unlike other frozen desserts, this one isn’t made with heavy cream and scoops of sugar. The soft, silky texture and rich flavor come from a Svelte® French vanilla protein shake.
The ho-hum holiday thumbprint cookie has a shortbread base with a schmear of jam. But I like to switch things up. You know, keep it jazzy and interesting. Besides, I can think of richer, more satisfying combos for dessert. (Shortbread and jam sounds like breakfast!) Thus, we turn to the greatest flavor lovebirds of all time – chocolate and peanut butter. Can I get a thumbs up before you press it down?
Looking for something sweet to share with your sweetie? Skip the ice cream sundae and serve up a healthy smoothie instead. These recipes combine decadent, antioxidant-rich dark chocolate with fruity, fiber-filled raspberries for the perfect blend of irresistible flavor and nutritional benefits. Each makes enough for two—surprise your workout partner, or save leftovers for a second sweet treat later in the day.
America won’t be running at all if we keep chowing down on deep-fried, sugar-glazed donuts for breakfast. And though it seems so much more convenient to stop at the corner coffee shop on the way to work, it’s just as easy to make your own healthy “fast food” with a few pantry staples. Yes, black beans are the star of this version, but the heaps of chocolate make these a totally dunkable delight. Read more →
